PlayStation Plus June 2018 free games revealed: Play XCOM 2 and Trials Fusion for free on PS4

Sony announces a strong June 2018 PlayStation Plus lineup with XCOM 2 and Trials Fusion

PlayStation Plus for June 2018 is here, and it’s a welcome improvement over May’s rather lacking lineup.

Replacing Beyond: Two Souls and Rayman Legends, June’s lineup brings XCOM 2 and Trials Fusion to the PS4 from 5 June. PS3 players can indulge in PS Plus fun with Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier and, the charmingly named, Zombie Driver HD Complete Edition. PS Vita players can look forward to Square and Atomic Ninjas for portable fun this June.

Interestingly, it looks as if this is one month where PS3 and PS Vita games aren’t cross-play compatible with PS4 – meaning you really are only getting two PS4 games this month.

All games will be available for download from 5 June, so you still have a bit of time to snap up May’s games if you haven’t already.

If you’re wondering why XCOM 2 and Trials Fusion are worthwhile additions to your PS4 library, both games have a reasonable fan following and offer up some tricky gameplay while simultaneously remaining accessible for some casual play. In XCOM 2 it’s your job to build back up the Earth defence force that is XCOM as a new alien threat invades the planet in a bid to destroy humanity. Gameplay is a turn-based affair, but there’s always the peril of losing a hard-trained soldier permanently as permadeath is XCOMs big gameplay selling point.

Trials Fusion is the latest entry in the Trails series of obstacle-course motocross games. Expect outlandish flips, jumps, loops and all manner of bizarre obstacles as you traverse your way through levels trying to keep yourself on your bike and score big in the process. There’s also multiplayer so you can go up against friends and family members to show them who’s really the best at deft throttle control.

To summarise, here’s what you’re getting in June as part of PlayStation Plus.
