PS Plus is getting a huge overhaul in June 2022, with a new tiered subscription setup and even more games. Here’s all we know about PS Plus in June 2022 for Essential users.

PS Plus is getting a huge overhaul in June as part of an effort to streamline PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now, as well as fend off competition from Xbox Game Pass. While many of the details are up in the air, we do know that if you’re sticking to the “Essential” tier you’ll now be getting two monthly games.

If that’s not enough, there are Extra and Premium tiers, too — we’ll cover those in a moment.

Here’s everything we know about the new PS Plus games for June in the Essential tier.

God of War 2018 could be one of June’s new PS Plus games.

It’s an exciting time to be a PS Plus subscriber with the long-awaited overhaul because we’re very much in the dark about what’s coming.

While some fans have suggested the likes of Demon’s Souls remake could be included, we know that’ll be part of the Extra tier now that Sony has revealed the full list of games.

It’d be fair to say that May saw the old regime off with a bang, though, with FIFA 22 added to the lineup and a free PS Plus Ultimate Team pack included, too.

Spanish site Areajugones appears to have leaked the lineup early, though, with the following making up the lineup:

  • God of War (2018)
  • Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker
  • Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl’s inclusion is particularly surprising, especially given that the game only launched in recent months. Sadly, its player count dropped to just one player, at least on Steam. PlayStation Plus could be a great way to rejuvenate it, though.

When will PS Plus games for June 2022 be available?

PS Plus games have traditionally been made available on the first Tuesday of the month. If that trend continues with the Spartacus overhaul, June 2022’s PS Plus games are likely to be available on Tuesday, June 7.

PlayStation Plus titles are usually announced on the PlayStation Blog on the last Wednesday of the month at 8:30 AM PST / 11:30 AM EST / 4:30 PM BST / 5:30 PM CEST.

This could change with the relaunch, and it appears the announcement is likely expected on June 1.

The revamped service isn’t expected in some regions until June 23, though, but we’d be very surprised if Sony left Essential subscribers high and dry for the first month.
