Update: Sony announced a last-minute change of plans for its July 2019 free PS Plus games. Rather than offering Konami's football sim PES 2019, it will now give subscribers Detroit: Become Human Digital Deluxe Edition. The other free PS Plus game, Horizon Chase Turbo, remains unchanged. Sony didn't explain why it made this sudden substitution on the day PES 2019 was scheduled to join the Instant Game Collection, but on the bright side, it's actually a two-for-one trade: the Digital Deluxe Edition of Detroit also includes the PS4 remaster of Heavy Rain.

The lineup of July 2019 free PS Plus games went live on July 2 and will be available all the way through August 5. Remember, you don't need to download the games to claim them - just complete the checkout process for the grand price of free. Make sure you claim all your games before August 5, when they'll change over!

There are two ways to enjoy Detroit: Become Human, and if you've already played Quantic Dreams' other games you're probably familiar with at least one of them: either as a straight-faced, emotionally charged drama full of relatable human struggles, or as a laughably overwrought and awkward exploration of elementary themes. Prepare yourself for the possibility of either experience and you're bound to have a good time. Don't miss out on the PS4 remaster of Quantic Dream's breakout title, Heavy Rain, which is also included in the same product. JAAAAASOOONNNNNN

For all the visual splendor of modern racing games, they just can't capture the same sense of out-of-control speed that defined so many pre-3D arcade racers. That's the big idea behind Horizon Chase Turbo, a new game that plays like a modernized version of OutRun. It isn't photorealistic, but its minimalist visuals are all the better for going trance-inducingly fast.
