PlayStation Plus free games for July 2016: new roster of games, 'Paragon' early beta access


The new set of free games for players who are subscribed to the premium game service of Sony, the PlayStation Plus club, is now available to download across all PlayStation console platforms. There are a total of six new games up for grabs altogether for the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation 3, and the PlayStation Vita handheld with each console getting two games of their own.

As announced via the official PlayStation blog, the new games would not be the only thing that PlayStation Plus members would be getting for the month of July. As an added bonus, PlayStation Plus members also get early access to “Paragon” before it hits open beta on Aug. 16.

“Paragon” is a new multiplayer online battle arena game developed by Epic Games. In addition to the free and early access to the beta of the game, members of the PlayStation Plus club also get to receive a free Starter Pack worth $40. The Starter Pack will include three Master Challenges for the heroes Gadget, Murdock, and Rampage. The pack can also be used to unlock skins, XP boosts, emotes, deck slots, and more.

For players on the PlayStation 4, they would be getting “Saints Row: Gat out of Hell,” the new game in the franchise set in the open world sandbox of New Hades; and the indie title “Furi” from developer The Game Bakers, described as having “a fast-paced, intense, and ultimately rewarding gameplay experience.”

For those on the PlayStation 3, on the other hand, they would be getting the home console version of the PlayStation Portable (PSP) classic, “Fat Princess,” as well as the “Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood” game.

As for those who are on the PlayStation Vita handheld, they would be getting “Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines,” and the PS Vita port of the original PSP game “Prince of Persia: Revelation.”

The new free games would be available to download for the entire month of July until the roster gets refreshed with the new set of free games for the next month.
