NA Playstation Store Update: July 7th, 2015

By Rebecca Smith,
Playstation 4

The lack of retail releases for this week hasn't stopped the release of digital titles, of which there are five. One of these titles is currently available for free through Playstation Plus. There isn't a lot of DLC and none of it bears trophies. Still, you can pre-order three upcoming titles if none of it takes your fancy.
