What are this month’s PS Plus free games? Regardless of what tier you’re subscribed to, you’ll be treated to a handful of amazing free PS Plus games each month that you can download, play, and keep forever (so long as you stay subscribed, that is). The PS Plus July games lineup serves up three excellent freebies for PlayStation gamers to claim, but something about it looks a bit sussy…

That’s right, Among Us is featured as one of this month’s free games. However, if you’re after something a bit more triple-A, there’s definitely something for you. If you’re an Essential subscriber and this lineup leaves you wanting more, you can always get access to the massive PS Plus Extra and Premium games list if you decide to upgrade your subscription tier – you’ll find many of the best PS4 games and best PS5 games awaiting you there!

PS Plus free games July 2024

The PS Plus free games for July 2024 are:

  • Among Us – PS4 and PS5
  • Borderlands 3 – PS4 and PS5
  • NHL 24 – PS4 and PS5

We’d say this is a pretty awesome lineup and continues Sony’s streak over the last few months of giving away at least a couple of incredibly popular or critically-acclaimed titles each month.

In Borderlands 3, you’ve got one of the best FPS games and wildest adventures of the 2010s, and with Among Us you have simple yet sensational party game goodness. While NHL 24’s inclusion is probably a bit more niche and only of value to those that enjoy the best sports games, it’s hardly what we’d call a ‘filler’ in this month’s excellent lineup.

Among Us, Borderlands 3, and NHL 24 will be available to claim and keep until Tuesday, August 6. Below you can find more details on all four of the games you can nab this month.

Among Us

Turns out you don’t need interplanetary exploration, impeccable combat, or terrifying aliens to become one of the best space games ever – you just need the sleuthing and simplicity of Among Us.

This asymmetrical party game is one the most popular in the genre’s history, and is an absolute blast to play with a group of friends. Get into a Discord or party chat and let the chaos unfold.

If you know nothing about Among Us and what it entails, it essentially splits your lobby into a larger group of Crewmates and a smaller group of Imposters. Crewmates must carry out certain tasks and work out who the Imposters are. Imposters are tasked with killing all of the Crewmates without being accused. It’s a simple premise, but one that is timeless.

Borderlands 3

Blending satisfying FPS combat, RPG elements, loot chasing, a gorgeous art style, and a humorous tone that rarely fails to land, Borderlands 3 is an absolutely brilliant game.

In Borderlands 3, you can play its excellent main story and side content as one of four class-based characters either as a solo player or co-op with up to three others. While there are skill trees to upgrade and copious amounts of loot to obtain to improve your arsenal of weapons, these systems don’t distract from a story, setting, and cast of characters that can put a smile on anyone’s face. If there’s one game from July’s lineup that you should definitely claim and try out some time in the future, it’s this one.

NHL 24

As mentioned, we know an ice hockey sim isn’t going to be for everyone, but if you’re a fan of sports (or having spontaneous brawls in the middle of an ice rank) it’s definitely worth giving a go.

While the gameplay changes between each annual release of EA’s sports games can often be fairly minor, that’s not the case with NHL 24. There have been some really big improvements, overhauls, and new features added in comparison to NHL 23, including a new passing system and body check mechanic.

So that’s our rundown of the freebies being offered to PS Plus subscribers for July 2024. As a reminder, all these games are available to claim up until August 6. Even if you’re on the fence about whether you’ll play them, there’s zero harm in adding them to your library just in case you fancy jumping into them in the future.

If none of these PS Plus games take your fancy, why not check out which other free PS5 games you can play right now without spending a dime.
