Sony is changing up the way it doles out free PlayStation Plus games, with the schedule and number of titles set to become much more regular, the company announced today.
From June 2014 onward, Plus subscribers on each PlayStation platform — PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita — will receive two free games per month. Starting in July, all six of those titles will go free on the first Tuesday of the month and will be available free for one month, until the first Tuesday of the subsequent month. Until now, Sony has been drip-feeding free games on a week-by-week basis, and they've been available free for varying periods of time.
In addition, said Sony, the games that have lived in the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection for a long time, such as Gravity Rush and the single-player portion of Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, will disappear "in the coming weeks." Interested parties should secure them while they can; even if you don't actually download them to your devices, you can "purchase" the titles in the PlayStation Store to add them to your PlayStation Network account for as long as you're a Plus subscriber.
June will bring six new free games to Plus members. PS4 owners will get Trine 2: Complete Story, the puzzle platformer from Frozenbyte, and PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate, the twin-stick shooter from Q-Games. On PS3, Plus subscribers will be treated to Visual Concepts' NBA 2K14 and Sanzaru Games' Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. And PS Vita owners will receive Renegade Kid's Mutant Mudds Deluxe and Engine Software's port of Re-Logic's Terraria. For more, check out the video above.
