Sony is bringing two heavy hitters to its slate of free games for PlayStation Plus members in June. Subscribers will be able to download and play both Call of Duty: WWII and Star Wars Battlefront 2 for free, and keep those games in their collection so long as they’re still a member.

Battlefront 2 came out during the holidays in 2017, launching into a firestorm of controversy over its loot boxes. Since that time, publisher Electronic Arts has totally revamped the game’s monetization scheme, and launched loads of new content for fans. The latest update — which also appears to be among its last — adds the Scarif landscape from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Call of Duty: WWII came out at roughly the same time, and was somewhat better received by fans and critics. It’s likewise continued to get new content over the years, including more missions for the popular Zombies mode. An update from 2018 even added aerial dogfights, alongside maps showcasing engagements at Dunkirk and on the beaches of Sicily.

Star Wars Battlefront II arrives on Tuesday, June 2, while Call of Duty: WWII is available right now. Both games will be free until Monday, July 6.
