As per the earlier leaks, the PS Plus lineup for July is the following:

  • Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time
  • The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan
  • Arcadegeddon

The free Crash Bandicoot 4 will come with both the PS4 and PS5 versions, so PS5 owners will be able to enjoy all the modern niceties like “N. credible visuals, N. hanced features, and N.Sane loading times.” The latest installment in the formerly PlayStation-exclusive franchise was made by Toys for Bob and has been described as a love letter to the action platformers of the 90s. With its inclusion, all four of the recently released mainline Crash Bandicoot games have been part of the PS Plus library at some point in the past two years.

As for Dark Pictures: Man of Medan, the 2019 title is the first Dark Pictures game by Supermassive Games. If you’re a fan of Until Dawn and The Quarry, you’ll want to give Man of Medan a try before you check out the studios’ other Dark Pictures games.

Finally, the last free game for the July 2022 PS Plus lineup is Arcadegeddon. The co-op multiplayer game originally came out as an “Early Access” title last year, and it appears that the developers are finally confident enough to release the PvP game with PvE elements to the general public.

Man of Medan brings the supernatural horror anthology to a closed setting on board of a drifting ghost ship.

While these are the only games that are part of the free PS Plus games lineup next month, there’s one more that’s coming for those with active Extra and Premium tier subscriptions. Stray, which was first announced at PlayStation’s Future of Gaming event in June 2020, will be the first game to launch on the new PS Plus once it comes out on July 19. This implies that Sony isn’t totally against releasing titles on its subscription platform on its first day of release even if the company might limit such releases to third-party games for now.

Speaking of Sony, the tech giant just unveiled a new lineup of gaming accessories. We also found that the company will not be appearing at Gamescom 2022 in August.
