The PS Plus July 2022 free games is the first monthly drop that incorporates the new version of the service. Monthly games are being cut down to two (with one extra pulled from the new games library) and a selection of PS4 and PS5 games will be added to the PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium games list.
With the PS Plus Extra and Premium tiers becoming the new focus for the service, we reckon that the monthly drops for PS Plus Essential will decrease in value, offering fewer triple-A games. Sony will then move some of those games like PlayStation Studios titles to the Premium and Extra tiers.
Below, you can find the leaks and rumours about the PS Plus July 2022 free games. We also have our predictions for the monthly essential games where we guessed what could be included in the monthly line-up.

PS Plus July 2022 Predictions
You can find our two predictions for the Essential tier games.
- Manifold Garden (PS5, PS4)
- Necromunda: Underhive Wars (PS4)
Manifold Garden (PS5, PS4)
Our first prediction is Manifold Garden, a mind-bending and unique puzzle game where you use gravity to explore an Escher-esque world of impossible architecture.
While exploring, you will cultivate a garden of architecture which opens up new pathways and possibilities in an eternal expanse.
Necromunda: Underhive Wars (PS4)
Our second choice is the tactical action game, Necromunda: Underhive Wars which asks you to grow and customise your gang in the dystopian and depressing Underhive.
While fighting you will face rival gangs, grow your power and wealth, and aim to outlive everyone else either alone or in up to four-player combat.
