PlayStation Plus Free Games June 2024

Summer is nearly upon us, and for some that might mean summer holidays are approaching as well. For those of us not planning on leaving the house, Sony will be giving us something to do. And so, there is the PlayStation Plus Free Games June 2024 line-up which will be available for download on Tuesday, June 4.

First, there is SpongeBob Squarepants: The Cosmic Shake, last year’s 3D platformer developed by Purple Lamp, and based on the Nickelodeon animated series Spongebob SquarePants. Players control to optimistic yellow sponge and, along with his pal Patrick, take on an adventure through multiple realities called “Wish Worlds” in order to save both their friends and the town Bikini Bottom.

Next, those of you who prefer a little more physical action, there’s AEW Fight Forever, last year’s professional wrestling game developed by Yuke’s, and based on the All Elite Wrestling. This is a more arcade-style wrestling game than a simulation, including several match types such as singles, tag team, Casino Battle Royale, and Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch. The game includes both a career mode, as well as online play.

Lastly, for those of you who prefer punching than grabbing, there’s Streets of Rage 4, a side-scrolling beat ‘em up developed by Dotemu, Lizardcube, and Guard Crush Games. The game continues the original SEGA Streets of Rage trilogy, in which up to four players scroll through levels while taking on waves of enemies.

All three PlayStation Plus Free Games June 2024 titles have a platinum trophy to unlock. Also, while both SpongeBob Squarepants: The Cosmic Shake and AEW Fight Forever are available for both the PS4 and PS5, Streets of Rage 4 is only for the PS4.

Among these titles, the platinum for SpongeBob Squarepants: The Cosmic Shake is arguably the easiest to obtain, as well as the quickest. Despite needing two playthroughs for each level, the platinum can be unlocked in around 15-20 hours.

Next, getting the platinum on AEW Fight Forever is below-average difficulty as well. Also, despite the game having online play, there are no online trophies to worry about. Due to some grinding, expect around 30 hours to unlock the platinum.

Lastly, getting the platinum on Streets of Rage 4 is no easy task. This is mainly due to needing an S-rank on each mission on Hard mode. The platinum can take anywhere between 35-50 hours, depending on your skills.

PlayStation Plus Free Games April 2022

Spring is fast approaching, and with it comes those pesky allergies. One way to avoid them is to stay indoors and play games all day. So, how about some freebies? Without further ado, here is the next line-up of PlayStation Plus free games April 2022 available for download on Tuesday, April 5.

For the PS4, there’s Slay the Spire by MegaCrit, the 2019 deck-building game which won over critics and received countless game award nominations. Players make their way through the levels of a spire, fighting enemies and bosses in turn-based combat through the use of attack and defense cards. Continue to build your deck, and develop strategies that see you to the end.

Also for the PS4 is SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated, a remake of the 2003 platformer which in turn is based on the Nickelodeon animated series SpongeBob SquarePants. Plankton has created a robot army that is threatening Bikini Bottom, and only Spongebob, along with his friends Patrick and Sandy, and save the day. This remake includes a multiplayer mode, as well as content that had been cut from the original game.

Lastly, for PS5 owners, there’s Hood: Outlaws & Legends, an online multiplayer action title inspired by the Robin Hood legend, in which players play as outlaws competing against rival teams in stealing treasures found in vaults. Select from a range of characters each with their own abilities, seek your treasure, and decide how generous you wish to be.

All three titles in the line-up of PlayStation Plus free games April 2022 have Platinum trophies to unlock.

The easiest Platinum, as you could probably imagine, would be for SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated. While not a complete walk in the park, the difficulty is under average, and only requires around 15-20 hours.

The Platinum for Slay the Spire is not incredibly difficult either, though requires not only strategy but a lot of luck, as well. As a result, expect anywhere between 60-80 hours of gameplay to unlock this Platinum.

Lastly, the difficulty in unlocking the Platinum for Hood: Outlaws & Legends is around average to above-average, and also requires around 60-80 hours of gameplay.
