Sony has done things a little differently with June’s PS Plus games lineup, with one of the PS4 titles already available to download and play.
Call of Duty WWII was a surprise inclusion that was released earlier and it will soon be followed by another interesting shooter.
But gamers will need to wait a few more days before they can download the PlayStation Plus version of Stars Wars Battlefront 2.
Having launched to much controversy back in 2017, developers DICE have done a lot to change Battlefront 2 across all platforms.
The original microtransaction system has been replaced, while a flurry of free content has been released on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
And with new maps, weapons and characters to check out, there appears to be a lot of interest in testing out the Star Wars game.
WHEN CAN I DOWNLOAD STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT 2 FOR FREE ON PS4?
While Sony has changed its usual format for release this month, the last remaining PS Plus June 2020 free game will be launching when expected.
Sony has confirmed that Star Wars Battlefront 2 will be available to download for free on PS4 from June 2, 2020.
Games are usually available to download by afternoon time in the UK and will remain available to claim until Monday, July 6, 2020.
June 2 will be your first chance to claim Star Wars Battlefront 2 and it will no doubt help boost the current player numbers.
The only downside is that EA has announced that while support for the game will continue, regular content updates will no longer be released.
This was revealed by Battlefront 2 team earlier in 2020 in a statement that reads: “Since launch, we’ve brought new content in the form of free updates to the entire player base, delivering immersive Star Wars battles you can play solo, with friends, and against others across the entire Skywalker Saga.
“This vision will now be realized as we complete our return to the Age of Rebellion, which we started in February.
“Looking beyond April, we’re transitioning to a phase where the servers, in-game challenges, recurring events such as Double XP and more, and game support will carry this broad and rich Star Wars gaming experience into the future.
“This means that we’re moving away from delivering regular content updates. As the game lives on with the players and our community, we’re looking forward to hearing your stories for years to come.”
It should also be noted that Star Wars Battlefront 2 will be available to download for free next month on PS4, only if you have an active PS Plus subscription.
PlayStation Plus is a subscription service, which provides special discounts on the PlayStation Store and exclusive opportunities like select betas and select early demos.
PS Plus also grants online cooperative and competitive multiplayer for PS4 games, as well as access to the Share Play feature.
You are also offered two free games every month that can be played on a PS4 console and will remain available as long as you have an active subscription.
