Sony may be skipping E3 this year, but the company isn’t ignoring the nearly 100 million PS4 owners out there. With the company officially announcing its annual Days of Play sale–starting on June 7 and ending on June 17–the only thing that could sweeten the pie is free games, and now Sony has announced June 2019’s free titles for PS Plus subscribers. Here’s the lineup coming on the first Tuesday of the month, just ahead of E3
As detailed on the PlayStation blog, beginning on June 4, PS Plus members can download both Borderlands: The Handsome Collection and Sonic Mania for the low price of free. Both titles will be available to claim until July 2. As always, claiming them will allow you to continue playing them for as long as your Plus subscription is active.
The Handsome Collection packs in improved versions of both Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel, which recently received enhanced texture packs for PS4 Pro owners. It’s an ideal way to catch up on the series before Borderlands 3 arrives later this year. Sonic Mania, meanwhile, is a well-received 2D entry in the long-running series.
May’s free PS Plus games–Overcooked and What Remains of Edith Finch–are still available to download until the new games arrive. There’s still time to add them to your ever-growing backlog before they’re replaced on June 4.
In our Borderlands: The Handsome Collection review, we said, “Even considering issues presented by Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, The Handsome Collection is still a great compilation, allowing you to witness not only Jack’s tale, but play a major role in shaping the history of Pandora itself, along with its lonely moon.”
In our Sonic Mania review, we said that “Sonic Mania methodically uses its sentimental appeal to great effect, but in the process, it heals the wounds inflicted by its most disappointing predecessors and surpasses the series’ best with its smart and interpretive design.”
