Horizon Chase Turbo are your PlayStation Plus games for July
Vie for the title in PES 2019 or enjoy some classic arcade racing


Take to the pitch in an acclaimed football sim and put the pedal to the metal in a nostalgic arcade racer with your next batch of PlayStation Plus Monthly Games, available to download from 2nd July.

Let’s take a closer look:

Pro Evolution Soccer 2019


From Konami’s long-running sports franchise, PES 2019 features a huge selection of real-world licensed leagues alongside hundreds of familiar players, bringing the thrill of global competition directly to your living room.

Create magic moments on and off the pitch, with each player possessing their own traits that will affect how they react in the moment, while myClub and Master League modes allow you to pursue your own club career. Enjoy local play for up to four players, or go online and test your skills against the world.

Horizon Chase Turbo


Prepare for a blast of pure ’90s nostalgia with Horizon Chase Turbo, a love-letter to the iconic, just-one-more-go racers of the arcade’s golden age.

Drawing inspiration from the likes of Out Run, Top Gear and Rush, developer Aquaris Game Studio captures the essence of the 16-bit era with style, with modern visuals, a thumping soundtrack with insane arpeggios and classic split-screen couch multiplayer.

Play solo or grab up to three friends. You’ll pilot your car through extraordinary places, watching the sun setting, facing rain, snow, volcanic ashes and even severe sandstorms.

Both Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 and Horizon Chase Turbo are available to download from PlayStation Store on 2nd July until 5th August.

In the meantime, you still have a few days left to pick up June’s two PlayStation Plus titles.

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is a bumper bundle of both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-sequel, featuring hours of first-person looting and shooting, while Sonic Mania is a carefully crafted remix of Sega’s iconic platformer hero, retooled with extra modes, characters and stages.

If you haven’t downloaded these yet, fear not: both are available to download for PS Plus members until 1st July.

Let us know how you get on with June and July’s titles over on Twitter and Facebook and we’ll see you again next month.

Detroit: Become Human and Horizon Chase Turbo are your PlayStation Plus games for July
Solve crimes in the neo-noir thriller or enjoy some classic arcade racing

Update:
We are making a swap to the PS Plus games lineup for July. This month, we are adding Detroit: Become Human Digital Deluxe Edition*, which also includes Heavy Rain (Beyond Two Souls**), to the July games lineup instead of Pro Evolution Soccer 2019. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Here’s more information about Detroit: Become Human, which will be available to PS Plus members along with Horizon Turbo Chase from 2nd July to 5th August.


In Detroit: Become Human, discover what it really means to be human in a powerful, emotional journey made of choice and consequences. Set in Detroit City during the year 2036, the city has been revitalized by the invention and introduction of Androids into everyday life. But when Androids start behaving as if they are alive, events begin to spin out of control. Step into the roles of the story’s pivotal three playable characters, each with unique perspectives as they face their new way of life.

*Detroit: Become Human is not available in Kuwait and will be replaced by PlayLink title Hidden Agenda

**Heavy Rain is not available in Bahrain, Lebanon, Oman Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE and is replaced by Beyond Two Souls as part of the Detroit: Become Human Digital Deluxe Edition

Detroit: Become Human IMO is a far more interesting and better title than PES 2019. Especially if like me you can't stand roundball.

Arkham Knight is decent (though I think Asylum is better) and the first Darksiders was great (though this one plays quite differently apparently). Both are 3rd person adventures. A strong enough pairing to keep you busy for a while, I reckon.

A lot of what seems to be "said" on the interweb is along the lines of... great a game that everyones played and a game no-one wants to play.

Speaking of which though - whilst I have no real interest in replaying either TLoU or the DLC, I have installed it as it was a SNR staple when I signed up. Be a great one to organise for an evening, no?!

Well I had a thoroughly enjoyable evening yesterday playing the Create-a-player mode "In The Show" on MLB The Show 19.

I first learnt Baseball from Super League Baseball on the Sega Megadrive many, many years ago, and like most American sports I keep an eye on what goes on. So having seen this played by a Twitch streamer that I usually see play FPS titles, I was actually intrigued when I saw it was coming to PS Plus.

As you can tailor the game so you only need play as much as you wish I only attempt to hit the ball or field the ball (I chose to be a centre fielder so not needed too often) when it's likely to come to me. So I maybe have 10-15 inputs in a game while the rest is simulated. Therefore each game takes about ten minutes depending on how much of the presentation you watch or skip.

Had a nice start as the second pitch I faced in the Minor leagues, after being drafted from a couple of exhibition games, went for a Home run :D

There's a decent feeling of progression each time as your various stats go up and down depending on your actions, mostly up thankfully. You also get a nice sense of accomplishment if you actually manage to do something important in the match at pivotal points. A great deal of customisation options too.

This is the only facet of the title I will be playing, and like most sports titles these days (I'm presuming a bit as it's been a while since I played any) seemingly riddled with micro transactions and card pack purchase possibilities with more real money to get better players, stats, equipment etc etc.

All in all a pleasing distraction/change from Waframe and Borderlands 3 which will probably see a fair amount of playtime over the coming months.
