People may be melting outside from this summer heat, but inside is about to get just as insane. The July PS Plus and Games With Gold titles have been revealed and are about to melt some faces with the lineup.

Games with Gold Gets Some Polish

Let’s start off with Xbox’s lineup, featuring:

Xbox One Games

  • Assault Android Cactus (84% Metacritic)
  • Death Squared (80% Metacritic)

Xbox 360 Games (compatible on Xbox One)

  • Splinter Cell: Conviction (85% Metacritic)
  • Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown (82 % Metacritic)

These games switch more often than swingers, so try to keep up. The twin-stick shooter Assault Android Cactus will be free for the entire month. Fighting game fans have until July 15th to pick up Virtua Fighter 5  before it’s knocked out the ring for Splinter Cell and Death Squared on the 16th.

Death Squared is going to live on until August 15th, while Splinter Cell is only available until July 31st. These games can hold you over until Microsoft’s next console hits stores.

Microsoft had a good showing at E3 a couple weeks back with a flood of games coming in 2019. They are working with Nintendo on cross-play, which is a 180 on the way they started this generation. If they keep this up, maybe people who moved to PS4 will give them another shot.

PS Plus Keeps on Adding

Sliding over to the Sony side of things, there’s a mixed bag of goodies for players. Besides the surprise extra title of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, there is a ton of different types of genres here.

PS4 PS Plus users are getting JASON — I mean Heavy Rain and the action-adventure game Absolver. PS3 & Vita players are not dead yet, they get love you: Rayman 3 HD, Deception IV, Zero Escape and Space Overlords. All the titles will be available the whole month of July, except Black Ops.

PS4 games

  •  Heavy Rain (87% Metacritic)
  •  Abosolver (69% Metacritic)

PS3 games

  • Rayman 3 HD (72% Metacritic)
  •  Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess (no Metacritic)

Vita titles

  • Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma (83% Metacritic)
  • Space Overlords (no Metacritic)

These games will be switching with June’s tiles: XCOM 2, Trials Fusion, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Zombie Driver HD, Atomic Ninjas, and Squares. So if you haven’t checked them out yet, you have until Tuesday to add them to your library.

Sony usually does a big summer sale, which might conflict with some of the titles you want to cop. This issue arises for users not being able to buy awesome titles dirt cheap because it’s already in their Plus library. There are two ways to solve this, either don’t download them or wait for Plus to expire.

There are wild titles coming to PS Plus and Games with Gold next month. What titles are you looking forward to? Who has the better lineup for July? Leave us your comments!
