Sony has revealed the games coming to PlayStation Plus for the month of June. Perhaps to no-one’s surprise, the line-up was accurately leaked just days before the official reveal. In case you missed the leak, let’s dive in once again now the games have been confirmed.
PS Plus subscribers are treated to a couple of “free” games each month, which can be downloaded and played for as long as the subscription stays active. Sony has been offering two “free” PS4 games, and one PS5 game for the last few months, giving PS5 console owners a chance to play some more games.
As confirmed by Sony, June 2021’s leaked games include Star Wars Squadrons (PS4), Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown (PS4) and Operation: Tango (PS5).
Of the trio Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown is particularly noteworthy. Virtua Fighter: Ultimate Showdown is a remaster of 2010’s Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown.
However, the original Virtua Fighter 5 was actually released back in 2005 for PS3 and Xbox 360. Of course, the game has evolved since its initial release, and Final Showdown looks like it’ll take the series to new heights.
Now, I know what you’re thinking; what makes this game any different from the last iteration of Virtua Fighter 5? Well, Ultimate Showdown is being handled by an “all-star” team at SEGA, comprising of Sega AM2 and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio.
As a result, the new Virtua Fighter will feature updated visuals and a new engine. Ultimate Showdown will also have new online features, such as a spectator mode and 16 player lobbies. Virtual Fighter is coming to PlayStation 4 on the 1st of June 2020, and should be on PS Plus arounf that time.
