PS Plus is getting a huge overhaul in June 2022, with a new tiered subscription setup and even more games. Here’s all we know about PS Plus in June 2022 for Essential users.

PS Plus is getting a huge overhaul in June as part of an effort to streamline PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now, as well as fend off competition from Xbox Game Pass. While many of the details are up in the air, we do know that if you’re sticking to the “Essential” tier you’ll now be getting two monthly games.

If that’s not enough, there are Extra and Premium tiers, too — we’ll cover those in a moment.

Here’s everything we know about the new PS Plus games for June in the Essential tier.


Rumored PS Plus Essential games for June 2022

God of War
God of War 2018 is among June’s new PS Plus games.

It’d be fair to say that May saw the old regime off with a bang, with FIFA 22 added to the lineup and a free PS Plus Ultimate Team pack included, with it.

Now, PlayStation has confirmed that June 2022’s free PS Plus games are:

  • God of War (2018)
  • Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker
  • Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl

God of War (2018) is no doubt the biggest draw for June’s PS Plus lineup, considering the critical acclaim it received following its release, along with its much-anticipated sequel supposedly releasing later this year.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl’s inclusion is particularly surprising, especially given that the game only launched in recent months. Sadly, its player count dropped to just one player, at least on Steam. PlayStation Plus could be a great way to rejuvenate it, though.

While some fans have suggested the likes of Demon’s Souls remake could be included, we know that’ll be part of the Extra tier now that Sony has revealed the full list of games.

It’s an exciting time to be a PS Plus subscriber with the long-awaited overhaul because we’re very much in the dark about what’s coming.

When will PS Plus games for June 2022 be available?

The PS Plus games for June 2022 will be available Tuesday, June 7 as revealed by the PlayStation Blog’s post.

The three games will be available for players to download until Tuesday, July 4.

Considering PlayStation Blog has been very consistent with when it reveals next month’s PS Plus lineup, players can expect July 2022’s PS Plus games to be revealed on June 29 at 8:30AM PST / 11:30AM EST / 4:30PM BST / 5:30PM CEST.
