  As has been the case since the PlayStation 5 launched, the free PS Plus games for June 2021 consist of one PS5 game and two PS4 games. On the PS5 side of things, PS Plus subscribers can claim?Operation: Tango, a unique co-op game that requires players to work together using voice chat. On PS4, PS Plus subscribers can claim?Star Wars: Squadrons, a space combat sim set in the?Star Wars universe that earned mostly positive reviews, and?Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown Edition, an enhanced version of?Virtua Fighter 5 that comes with some new features.


  Operation: Tango and?Star Wars Squadrons will be cycled out of the free PS Plus games lineup come Tuesday, July 6, at which point they will be replaced by new games. However,?Virtua Fighter 5 is going to remain a free PS Plus game until August 3. PS Plus subscribers will still have three games to download in July regardless, with Sony likely to announce them on June 30, the last Wednesday of the month. However, it seems one of the free PS Plus games for July 2021 may have leaked ahead of time.

  Leaks point to the?Plague Tale: Innocence next-gen remaster being one of the free PS Plus games for July 2021. The person that leaked that accurately leaked the existence of?A Plague Tale: Requiem prior to its announcement as well as the existence of the?Plague Tale: Innocence next-gen remaster itself. While fans should always take leaks with a grain of salt, chances seem better than usual that this leak is accurate and the next-gen remaster of?A Plague Tale: Innocence will indeed be one of the free PS Plus games for July 2021.

  Xbox Games with Gold subscribers currently have three free games that they can claim for their collection. On Xbox One, the free Games with Gold Games for June 2021 currently available consist of?Shadows: Awakening and?The King’s Bird, two fairly obscure indie games. However, those on Xbox 360 have a more high profile free game that they can claim in the form of?Injustice: Gods Among Us, the DC superhero fighting game from?Mortal Kombat developer NetherRealm Studios.


  When it comes to the Xbox free Games with Gold, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that Microsoft is simply not putting that much effort into offering fans worthwhile games. Instead Microsoft seems focused on adding games to its Xbox Game Pass lineup, with the goal of getting as many people subscribed to the service as possible. Even so, one can’t beat free, and so Xbox Live Gold subscribers may still want to consider claiming these free games if they haven’t already. Some new free games will be announced soon and added to the service come July 1, so subscribers should stay tuned to see what those turn out to be.
