PlayStation Plus subscribers will gain access to three games in July: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 from developer Treyarch, WWE 2K Battlegrounds from Saber Interactive, and A Plague Tale: Innocence from Asobo Studio. Black Ops 4 and WWE 2K Battlegrounds are both available on PlayStation 4 consoles and on PlayStation 5 through backward compatibility, while A Plague Tale: Innocence is only available on PlayStation 5.

These three games are available to download beginning on July 6, Sony announced Tuesday. Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown, which was available in June, remains available for PlayStation Plus subscribers until Aug. 2. June’s other PlayStation Plus games — Star Wars: Squadrons and Operation: Tangoare available to download until July 5.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was released in 2018 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One. The game doesn’t have a single-player campaign like Call of Duty games before it, instead featuring different missions that flesh out multiplayer character stories.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds is an arcade wrestling game that was originally released in 2020 by Saber Interactive. It replaced 2K’s yearly WWE game, which was canceled after WWE 2K20 was criticized for its poor performance.

A Plague Tale: Innocence is an adventure survival game published in 2019 by Focus Home Interactive. The game was nominated for awards for its narrative, which is set in the late Middle Ages during the second bubonic plague pandemic.
