PlayStation Plus subscribers will get access to three games in June: Electronic Arts’ Star Wars: Squadrons, Sega’s recently announced Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown, and Clever Plays’ Operation: Tango for PlayStation 5. Sony Interactive Entertainment announced Wednesday that the trio of PS Plus freebies will be available to download starting June 1.

Star Wars: Squadrons, developed by EA’s Motive studio, is a starfighter combat sim set in the Star Wars galaxy. Players pilot starships on both the Imperial and New Republic side, battling in deathmatch-style multiplayer and a team-based mode called Fleet Battles. Star Wars: Squadrons also includes a single-player campaign, during which players see both sides of the post-Return of the Jedi conflict. Squadrons supports PlayStation VR on PlayStation 4.

Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown is an update to Sega’s flagship fighting game series. The latest version updates the 3D fighting game’s visuals and online features, and it includes a roster of 20 playable characters. Ultimate Showdown will make its PlayStation 4 debut via PlayStation Plus and will be available to PS Plus members until Monday, Aug. 2.

Operation: Tango is a cooperative spy game for two players who take on the roles of Agent and Hacker, working to “infiltrate, investigate, and eradicate the forces threatening the free world.” Both players need a working microphone to play, as Operation: Tango requires voice chat to play properly. PS Plus subscribers can download the PS5 version of the game.

May’s PlayStation Plus games (Battlefield 5, Wreckfest, and Stranded Deep) are still available to download through Monday, May 31.
