The games will be available to download from July 5th to August 1st, 2022. Here are the three games for PlayStation Plus for July 2022 as announced on PlayStation Blog:

Crash Bandicoot 4 It's About Time (PS5 | PS4)

Crash Bandicoot 4 It's About Time was truly a great comeback after years of neglect for the bandicoot at the hands of his latest owner, Activision. After the N. Sane Trilogy and Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled found footing, this 2020 release arrived brimming with all of the wild spinning glory this little orange monstrosity deserved. From top to bottom, this feels like a platformer from the modern era without losing any of that classic PS1 identity as laid out by Naughty Dog. However, be wary — those Crash Bandicoot 4 It's About Time trophies will lead you down a perilous path. The platinum will take more than the odd bounce atop a wonkily constructed box of wumpa fruit to earn, with around 100 hours and four playthroughs being toted. However, this is still a superb game, so do give it a go!

The Dark Pictures Anthology Man of Medan (PS4)

The Dark Pictures Man of Medan was Supermassive's 2018 return to horror games after the success of Until Dawn. While not quite as well-received as its predecessor with critics touting pacing and technical issues, Man of Medan did receive praise for a being short and sweet horror outing. The The Dark Pictures Man of Medan trophies make for a 20 hour romp that will not cause any trouble when following a guide.

Arcadegeddon (PS5 | PS4)

Arcadegeddon has found itself a cult audience after climbing up through early access. Now, with a PS5 and PS4 reset, it's looking ready for more players to hop in — and we know developers love using Plus to accomplish such a feat. This third-person shooter makes use of PvP and PvE elements to help keep you hooked on its weird pixel aesthetic. The Arcadegeddeon trophies are a bit of a mystery, but at a glance, it looks like they are all perfectly manageable, if a little grindy. Let us know if you have played the game!

If you are looking for the lists of all the games at all the tiers, they await over in our PlayStation Plus guide. What do you think of the games offered here? Are they good for this month? Let us know in the comments!
