PS Plus June 2014 update with surprise

By Alan Ng - May 27, 2014

While Sony continue to keep PS4 gamers sweating over the highly anticipated PS Plus June 2014 update, we may have some major information to share with regards to how the update will take place.

The big news is that RESOGUN is leaving the PS Plus IGC. This is a big surprise to some gamers as most are just expecting Stick it to the Man to leave, giving gamers one new PS4 game for the June update.

However, Sony has now confirmed that two games will be leaving – a confirmation of this can be seen in the PS Plus update for June for PS Vita gamers here.

With two games leaving the IGC, it means that we are now highly likely to get two free games for the PlayStation Plus June update, rather than one. Logically, this will be split up into one game which will be valid for one-month as normal, but one other game that will be free for a whole year! – replacing RESOGUN.

As you can imagine, this is very exciting for PS4 gamers and we can already see that the speculation has begun on what game Sony could be offering for a full year. The top contender that we can see seems to be Knack, with many PS4 gamers believing that Sony may now decide to give away Mark Cerny’s platformer for a year with PS Plus subscriptions.

Other choices that we have seen include Need for Speed and Killzone Shadow Fall. We would be surprised if Killzone is chosen though, as we have a feeling it may be a smaller game similar in the mould to RESOGUN – giving away a free game for a year is a big deal after all.

We should get confirmation of the PS Plus June 2014 update at any moment though, since the update should go live on the PS Store at the beginning of June – June 3 should be the exact date on when the update will be available.

As we wait for Sony to finally give details on the update, tell us 1) what you think the Stick it to the Man replacement game will be and 2) what the RESOGUN replacement will be which will last a full year.

Would you be disappointed if it was Knack, honestly?

    june 3 `??? still not out ??

  • wrestlefan01

    i can deal with it being knack or need for speed rivals..already bought and played tomb raider and took kill zone back a day after i got it because it sucked imo

  • Magill93

    I thought for a game to qualify for IGC it had to have a certain average score on Metacritic or something? Not sure if that is entirely true but wouldn’t that put Knack out of the running

  • eazy

    How about nfs has ps4 game can’t think of any others

  • Ayayayayai

    My guess would be knack as Its AAA enough to qualify for IGC yearly title….no way its killzone its too hot right now to be given as a free game for an entire year….they could also give thief or tomb raider seeing as they’re not selling at all.

    • Herve Shango

      i got killzone sf for free my ps4 plus sbscription before all the present ones so i don’t know what your talking about because sony already gave that game away for free.

      • Ryan N

        Um… no you didn’t.

        • Herve Shango

          dude yes i did

        • Ryan N

          Do you mean the multiplayer trial? Because that’s not the same as getting the full game for free.

          I can’t find any news supporting what you claim.

  • Mike

    I don’t buy Madden NFL games but would definitely play it if it was free on ps plus. The game only sells for a limited time anyway, why not throw it out just before the next roster update($60 game) comes out

  • gurnett

    I got Knack when I got my system in December and I was extremely disappointed with it. I really hope it’s not the free game of the month.

    The PS4 Playstation Plus lineup, aside from Outlast, has been super-weak. The PS3 lineup, however, has been great over the last few months (Thomas Was Alone, Brothers, Tomb Raider).

    If I only owned a PS4, and not the PS3, I wouldn’t even bother with Playstation Plus at this point.

    Guys,

    To me it is not very clear what they mean with yearly/montly games. Do they mean that a yearly game will stay for a complete year to “buy” instead of just a month? I was not aware that Resogun was also longer available than just a month :)

    • Ayayayayai

      Yep yearly games are available troughout the year like uncharted and gravity rush have been for vita….these are usually changed in June every year….the monthly titles of course change each month….

    • James Lee

      must be for the NA region because i got the ps4 in February and was not able to download resogun

  • Mo

    My thoughts although its unlikely: Killzone – Year Title, Knank – Month Title.

  • Doug

    As a new PS4 owner, I’m finding PS Plus to be a bit like Russian Roulette when it comes to buying games.

    • Dan Davidson

      As long as you’re buying AAA titles, you have very little to worry about.

      • TacoMan

        Well, that’s not true in the slightest. Sony has given out quite a few AAA titles for PS Plus now, on PS3 (unsure about Vita). Bioshock Infinte, Infamous 2, Tomb Raider, Remember Me, Batman: AA, DmC, Metal Gear Rising: Revengence, Grid 2, Hitman: Absolution, Battlefield 3, Xcom Enemy Unknown, LBP Karting, Deus Ex: HR, Uncharted 3, Demon’s Souls, Spec Ops: The Line, Darksiders, Bioshock 2, and Borderlands off the top of my head.

  • Stuart Stow

    There wasn’t much else at launch i wanted to play if i had to pick one i’d go for NFS rivals but would much prefer Knack.

  • Stuart Stow

    Got platinum on Knack and finished it 8 times i sold it on but would love it to keep on my HDD and would play through again.

    • NgTurbo

      Good attitude to have, what game other than Knack would you want to see?

      • James Lee

        As much as i would love to get my hands on knack PS plus games require a metacritic score of 70 or more. So i think its easy to rule that out, my guess is it will be a six monthly title rather than a yearly title due to the only exclusives sony can offer on ps4 are indeed killzone, knack and infamous. The only AAA titles i can see it being is either injustice or rivals.
