PlayStation Plus June 2021 free games announced

The PS Plus June 2021 lineup of free PS5 and PS4 games includes Operation: Tango and Star Wars: Squadrons.

We’re almost halfway through the year, and a new crop of PlayStation Plus games has landed to help get you through the next few chilly months. In case you missed it, May’s lineup included one PS5 title (Wreckfest: Drive Hard, Die Last) and two PS4 titles (Battlefield V and Stranded Deep). For June, Sony is keeping the same split with one PS5 exclusive and two PS4 games up for grabs.

All three PS Plus June games are free to subscribers and will be available for download from Tuesday, June 1 through to Monday, July 5 (August 2 for Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown). And if you haven’t downloaded May’s free games yet, you still have until Monday, May 31 to add them to your library.

1. Operation: Tango

Channel your inner secret agent in the brand new PS5 exclusive, Operation: Tango. In this co-op spy game, you and a friend join forces online to tackle dangerous, high-tech missions around the world in the not-too-distant future. You’ll play as either a Hacker or an Agent, working in tandem and using your unique skillset to solve challenges. You’ll be linked only by voice, so communication and teamwork are critical.

2. Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown

PlayStation 4

The iconic Sega battler is reborn for both longtime fans of the series as well as newcomers. Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown combines everything we loved about the O.G. VF5, along with new online features like custom tournaments and live spectating. It’ll also be hanging around for a month longer than usual PS Plus free games, and will be up for two months until Monday, 2 August.

3. Star Wars: Squadrons

PlayStation 4

Live out your childhood dream of becoming an X-wing or TIE fighter pilot in Star Wars: Squadrons. Set after the events of Return of the Jedi and seen from two alternating views: The freedom-fighting New Republic, and the order-obsessed Empire. There are tons of customisation options for your spacecraft, weapons, engines and more, and PS VR users can even play the whole game in VR.
