Playstation Plus Freebies For July 2019

Update: Shortly before the games went live yesterday, Sony announced via a blog post, that they were replacing PES 2019 with the Deluxe Edition of Detroit: Become Human. While no reason was given for this swap (as unprecedented as it is) it would seem that the rampant complaints about this month’s selection from many online communities may have led to the last minute change. With the Deluxe Edition of Detroit, players will actually get a third free game in the form of the excellent Heavy Rain which comes bundled with this edition of Detroit.
 
Sports fans will be pleased with Sony’s offerings for Playstation Plus Subscribers but others hoping for titles to match the calibur of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection or Sonic Mania, should look elsewhere.
This months’s free Playstation Plus titles include Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) 2019 and indie racer Horizon Chase Turbo. Both games will be available on the first Tuesday of the month.
While neither game is inherently bad, its usually a good idea to try to offer a little something for everyone with these releases. Compared to Xbox One’s free games this month (just with Symphony of the Night alone) Sony is losing this month with the games on offer here. While I can’t complain too much as the games are free, as of March of this year Sony stopped offering PS3 and VITA games as part of the service, drastically decreasing the value of Playstation Plus for some subscribers.
What do you think of this month’s free PS Plus games? Are you thrilled with the selection or do you feel like Sony is just coasting along until the launch of the PS5 at this point? Let us know in the comments.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
