If you are like myself at the moment, you might be finding yourself temporarily bunkering down for another COVID-19 lockdown. If you have a PlayStation Plus membership however, you could have access to a few more free games starting 6 July 2021, which may or may not sate your gaming needs for a little while. For the month of July, Sony Interactive Entertainment has confirmed that four games will be available as free downloads for PlayStation Plus members. Three of these are PlayStation 4 titles which are backwards compatible with the PS5, while the fourth is exclusively available for the PlayStation 5.
