June’s monthly free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers offer a heady mix of high-speed retro platforming and over-the-top shoot ‘n’ loot FPS action, available to download starting next week on June 4. Let’s take a closer look.
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection
Getting excited for the freshly announced Borderlands 3, launching later this year? Now is the time to revisit the franchise with Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, which includes both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and get reacquainted with Gearbox’s hilarious loot-focused FPS series.
Not only does The Handsome Collection include all DLC for both titles, enhanced local multiplayer and remastered visuals, but if you played either title on PS3 you can carry over your save data and can pick up where you left off in the PS4 version.
The blue blur returned in style in 2017 with this lovingly-crafted throwback to the Sega icon’s 2D side-scrolling roots, tailor-made to put an ear-to-ear grin on the faces of the Sonic faithful.
You know the drill: Sonic, Tails and Knuckles face off against their old nemesis, Dr. Eggman, across a mix of re-imagined classic stages and brand new zones. Expect lightning-fast platforming thrills, countless collectibles, hidden areas, and both competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes for two players.
While you’re waiting for those to drop, you’ve still got a few days left to download May’s line-up before they go away on June 3: check out the award-winning narrative adventure What Remains of Edith Finch and the madcap couch co-op hit Overcooked!
