PlayStation Plus Free Games July 2021

The heat and humidity is on its way in, but so are some free games from Sony. And so, here is the line-up of PlayStation Plus free games July 2021 which will be available for download on Tuesday, July 6.

First, there’s A Plague Tale: Innocence, an survival horror with stealth elements from Asobo Studio. Taking place during the Hundred Years’ War in the late 1340’s, Amicia de Rune is a young girl who must face various dangers while searching for a cure to help her brother.

Next, there’s Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII, the sequel to the 2015 Black Ops III, and a first-person online multiplayer shooter. With no single player campaign this time round, players can select to play multiplayer, zombies, and the newly added battle royale mode called Blackout, each with their own story to follow.

Lastly, there’s WWE 2K Battlegrounds, a more arcade-like style to the traditional professional wrestling games. Select from a roster of favorites such as John Cena, The Rock, and Stone Cold Steven Austin, and fight for supremacy in the ring.

Among the three freebies coming next month, A Plague Tale: Innocence and Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII have Platinum trophies to unlock.

Of those two, A Plague Tale: Innocence is by far the easier Platinum. The game is not particularly difficult, especially if you are following a walkthrough, and requires less than 20 hours.

However, as you can imagine being an online-only game, Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII will require some serious first-person shooter skills, and well over a hundred hours, to unlock the Platinum.

While WWE 2K Battlegrounds does not have a Platinum, nor did it receive positive reviews upon its release last year, the game is of average difficulty and all trophies can be unlocked in less than 10 hours.

Fuel is an open world racing game, set in a post-apocalyptic world after the ravages of global warming.

Players can freely drive across the map, experiencing such varying weather conditions as tornadoes and sandstorms, participating in challenges and collecting fuel - the world's currency - in order to participate in races. Characters and vehicles can be customized. The game also features competitive multiplayer of up to 16 players, and a co-operative mode supporting up to 4 players.

Fuel received lukewarm reviews, with an average score of 59%, criticized for poor AI in the NPC's and awkward racing mechanics.

Fuel includes three online trophies. Unfortunately, after the closure of GameSpy following the Ziff Davis acquisition of IGN Entertainment, the online servers to the game were closed on July 16, 2014. As a result, the three online trophies - and therefore the Platinum trophy - have since become Not Obtainable.

Since the online servers for Fuel were closed on July 16, 2014, the game's three online trophies - and therefore the Platinum trophy - are now Not Obtainable. However, the game still contains 31 offline trophies, so if you're still interested, then read on.

Since this is an open world game, there's no real roadmap required. However, if you're in need of some direction, you'll basically want to start unlocking camps. Do this by completing the career races in each region on Legend, to gather stars. Then, hit the unlocked Doppler truck to reveal the zones Vista points, and the Livery and Challenge locations. Essentially, and to save confusion, you'll want to completely finish a zone before moving on to the next one.

You can use the Race Editor tab to save on driving time. Simply create a short race, and select a road near the Vista or Livery location you wish to collect as your start checkpoint. Once saved, hit Try Race, and you will be automatically sent to your destination Then just quit the race.

There are several other random trophies to collect after you've completed all the challenges and career races, such as driving from one side of the map to the other twice, and collecting oil drums. Check out the Fuel trophy guide links under our Links tab for whatever you're missing to mop-up the offline trophies.

Unfortunately with the online servers closed, this is as far as we can go.

Racquet Sports

Racquet Sports, known as Racket Sports in North America, is a sports game which utilizes the PlayStation Move controller and PlayStation Eye camera. The game includes five different racquet sports: Tennis, Badminton, Squash, Beach Tennis, and Table Tennis, of which up to 4 players can participate, and 8 players online. Players swing the PlayStation Move controller as they would a real racquet against the ball in each of the five categories.

Racquet Sports received poor reviews, with an average score of 48%. Though it was praised for its graphics and presentation, the game was mainly criticized for its controls and simple, repetitive gameplay.

This is a high 3-star rating, due to two online trophies - one of which requires winning 25 online games, the other needs you to win while your opponent has a score of zero. Not only is this difficult to do legitimately, but the online community is rather dead at this point and so difficult to find anyone to play with.

However, if you have a boosting partner, these two online trophies could be knocked out easily. This still only brings the difficulty rating down to a low 3-star however, as the offline trophies are no piece of cake either, due to both the challenge of aiming and, at times, clumsy controls.

Expect roughly 30 hours for the Platinum if boosting the online trophies, and far more if you're attempting them legitimately.

There's a Career Mode for each of the five racquet sports: Tennis, Badminton, Squash, Beach Tennis, and Table Tennis, and each of these games are divided into Amateur, Professional, and Masters. We recommend starting here, selecting one of the sports and making your way through until you've completed both the Masters as well as their Private Cup, of which you'll need to accept the invitation to during your playthrough. These five sports can be done in any order of your choosing, though we found Tennis and Squash to be the more difficult of the five, so you may wish to save these two for last.

Completing all five Career Modes, their three difficult modes, and winning the Private Cups, will not only unlock their respective trophies, but you should also unlock a few naturally during the course of the Career Mode.

After that, you can move onto the Training Mode. Despite being titled "training," these are quite challenging, which is why we recommend doing this after completing the Career Mode and you've had time to get used to the game and its controls. You'll need to get 10 straight shots in each of the five sports in order to unlock the Winning Streak trophy, which is probably one of the most difficult trophies in the game.

After that, you can head into online play. There are two trophies to unlock here: Have A Tissue Pal for winning an online match while your opponent has a score of zero points, and Playing With The Big Boys for winning 25 online matches. The online community is rather dead at the moment, and getting these two trophies legitimately will be quite difficult. Check out the boosting forums under our Links tab if you're interested in finding a boosting partner.

After all that, simply mop-up any remaining trophies you still need.

Good luck, and be sure to rest your arm from time to time!
