A new month means a new set of PlayStation Plus games, and one game on the July 2021 card is one I’m sure people might have been eyeing since a follow-up was announced during E3 2021.
A Plague Tale: Innocence‘s PS5 version headlines the PlayStation Plus lineup for July, accompanied by Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and WWE 2K Battlegrounds. They’ll all be available starting July 6, and they’re joined by a fourth game: Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown will spend a second month on PlayStation Plus.
It was recently confirmed A Plague Tale: Innocence is coming to new-gen consoles, as well as the Nintendo Switch via the cloud. The PlayStation 5 version targets 60 FPS at 4K native resolution, which is a really high-fidelity lens to view all those creepy rat swarms through.
Considering A Plague Tale: Requiem was announced at Xbox and Bethesda’s E3 showcase, I imagine folks are probably looking for a way to play the first game, so this is a pretty good get. And I have to admit, I’m morbidly curious about the bizarre WWE 2K Battlegrounds.
Remember to pick up June’s PS Plus games before July 5, which includes Star Wars: Squadrons and the very good co-op espionage sim Operation: Tango.

Sony has finally unveiled the PlayStation Plus July lineup on the very last day of June. Users will receive Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII, WWE 2K Battlegrounds, and A Plague Tale: Innocence remaster, the latter of which is only available for PS5 owners (however, PS4 owners can still redeem it on the PlayStation Store website or app). Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown is also available for one more month.
While likely the least recognizable title of the trio, A Plague Tale: Innocence is the most prominent one, even though it’s not surprising since insiders had already pointed to it being in this month’s offering. It’s the PS5 title of the month and comes on the same day that the current-gen remaster is releasing (which will also be on Game Pass on Xbox and PC). Just be warned that the above trailer contains major spoilers for the game.
The Last of Us-style adventure game previously came out on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One in 2019, but Asobo Studio announced this upgrade right after E3 2021 where it also revealed the current-gen-only 2022 sequel, A Plague Tale: Requiem. Innocence‘s current-gen upgrades include a native 4K resolution, 60 frames per second target, faster loading, and “highly improved visuals,” but those improvements were not spelled out.
Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII is the second title. This multiplayer-only entry in the series from 2018 introduced battle royale to the Call of Duty before 2020’s Warzone expanded upon it. Of course, it has many of the other traditional Call of Duty modes like Zombies and competitive multiplayer.
WWE 2K Battlegrounds is the third game in the lineup and is the only one with a poor critical reception as it stands at a 59 on OpenCritic. It’s an arcadey arena fighting game with tons of recognizable stars like John Cena, The Rock, and Stone Cold Steve Austin. This title released in the absence of a traditional wrestling game because WWE 2K20 was so horrendously received the year prior.
And while not a new game, players can still redeem Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown for one more month until August 2, the day before the August PlayStation Plus titles come out. This remade fighting game was one of the titles that Sony offered in June alongside Star Wars: Squadrons and Operation: Tango.
30 June, 2021 - 10:04pm
The titles will be available for PlayStation Plus members starting July 6 and players will be able to download the games until Aug. 2. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and WWE 2K Battlegrounds are this month’s PS4 games, and will be available to download for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 owners. A Plague Tale: Innocence is being released as a PS5 version only, with 4K native resolution and targeted 60 FPS.
Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown also remains available to download until Aug. 2 after joining the PlayStation Plus lineup last month. The other titles in the June collection of PlayStation Plus games, including Star Wars: Squadrons and Operation: Tango will be available for a free download until July 5.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was first released in 2018, featuring three multiplayer modes including the beloved Zombies experience, the series’ classic multiplayer experience and the battle royale Blackout mode. PlayStation Plus members can also experience another type of multiplayer game in WWE 2K Battlegrounds, where players can battle one another as well known WWE fighters in local multiplayer, or experience a new story mode.
The PS5 exclusive, A Plague Tale: Innocence, follows a young girl and her brother as they attempt to survive in the dark and unforgiving circumstances they are given. The PS5 version of this game, with improved visuals and faster loading, makes its debut on PlayStation Plus.

Hot on the heels of announcing A Plague Tale: Requiem, publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Asobo Studio also confirmed that its excellent predecessor, A Plague Tale: Innocence, would also be getting an enhanced re-release for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, with free next-gen upgrades being offered to those who already own the game. We already know that the game is going to boast 4K resolution and 60 FPS performance on the newer consoles, but specifically in terms of the PS5, how is it going to leverage its unique features?
Speaking to GameSpot, Focus Home Interactive PR strategist Julie Carneiro confirmed that the game will indeed be doing that, such as with support for the DualSense’s haptic feedback. “We can say that [A Plague Tale: Innocence] will feature faster load times, audio enhancement, DualSense features (i.e. haptic rumble sync with 3D sound and adaptive triggers), and cross progression,” Carneiro said.
A Plague Tale: Innocence is launching for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch (via the cloud) on July 6. You can read our review of the original release through here.
Its sequel, A Plague Tale: Requiem, is launching some time in 2022 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Nintendo Switch (again, as a cloud-exclusive release). It will also be available via Xbox Game Pass at launch.
