July 2017 is a terrific month for PlayStation Plus, with a number of well-regarded titles set to go free for subscribers.

PlayStation 4 owners get the best of the lot, as usual, with Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn and Telltale Games’ Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series. They can also download Infinite State Games’ Don’t Die, Mr. Robot, which is a cross-buy title across PS4 and PlayStation Vita.

The other free Vita game for July is I-Illusions’ Element4l. PlayStation 3 customers have something to celebrate, too — they’ll get SIE Japan Studio’s Tokyo Jungle and Iron Galaxy Studios’ Darkstalkers Resurrection.

Sony is also offering a few bonuses to PlayStation Plus subscribers starting in July. At E3 2017, the company announced a suite of games under a new brand called PlayLink, which features social games that are designed to be played with smartphones. One of the first PlayLink titles is Wish Studios’ That’s You, a party game that supports two to six players; it will be free from July 4 through Oct. 24.

In addition, Robot Entertainment announced today that it will launch Orcs Must Die! Unchained on PS4 on July 18. It’s a free-to-play game with microtransactions, and all Plus subscribers will have exclusive access to a Plus Pack — a $20 value, according to the studio — for free. The Plus Pack will only be available until Aug. 17.

July’s PlayStation Plus titles will go free next Tuesday, July 4. In the meantime, you can still get the June games.

Correction: Due to an error in the PlayStation Blog post announcing the July lineup, this story mistakenly said Orcs Must Die! Unchained would be launching in closed beta on PS4. The July 18 release date represents the launch of the full game. We’ve edited the article to reflect this.
