PS Plus June update contains great games

By Alan Ng - May 9, 2013

As most of you will be enjoying Hitman Absolution for free in Europe as part of the May PlayStation Plus update, we have some more fantastic news for you. The first details of what games will be available in June for the Instant Game Collection have just gone live. You definitely should be very happy with what is coming.

Without further ado, we can tell you that in Europe, Sony will be offering none other than ICO HD and Shadow of the Colossus HD as free downloads. The games are part of the ICO HD collection that Sony recently released for the PlayStation 3 and easily some of the best games that ever released on the console.

It should be perfect preparation as we await possible details on the elusive Last Guardian game at E3 2013. The game has been mysteriously quiet lately, and it would be great if Fumito Ueda and the others at Team Ico could provide us with an update or even better – some new gameplay.

If ICO and Shadow of the Colossus were not good enough for the June update, we can also tell you that Demon Souls is going to be available for free as well. To remind you, this game is the original from Namco Bandai and From Software and was eventually followed up with the infamous spiritual successor, which most of you will know as Dark Souls.

It means that the PS Plus update in June will be serving you with three of the finest PS3 titles developed from Japanese studios, so it definitely is the perfect time to subscribe if you haven’t previously tried PS Plus yet. As pointed out above, the games are only for Europe at the moment – there’s still no confirmation if any of these games will be available for the US PS Plus update in June, but we’ll let you know.

As a EU subscriber, are you delighted with these games as part of your collection?

    it is uk, crap. dark souls looks ok but not normally my cup of tea, might try it but i hate it when we get ps2 games as ps2 games are cheap on ps3 store. even a great game like final fantasy shouldnt be put on as ps plus content, stick to ps3 and vita
