June kicks off with a great selection of games available to download with PlayStation Plus! From June 1st, players will be able to pick up iconic Sega one-on-one battler Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown, as well as space combat game Star Wars: Squadrons. PlayStation 5 owners will also be able to pick up cooperative spy adventure, Operation: Tango!
Operation: Tango (PS5)
Operation: Tango is a cooperative spy adventure, where players must complete dangerous missions across the globe in a high-tech near-future world. The game requires two players to overcome challenges and puzzles, with each player playing as either a Hacker or an Agent. Interestingly enough, Operation: Tango requires both players to have access to a working microphone, indicating that teamwork is most definitely crucial to succeed!
Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown (PS4)
Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown is a remake of the iconic Sega one-on-one battler. VF5 comes complete with new online features, including custom tournaments supporting up to 16 players as well as a number of classic modes like Rank Match, Arcade and training modes. Visually, VF5 looks brilliant from the early trailers, let’s hope it plays as well as it looks!
Star Wars: Squadrons
Star Wars: Squadrons is a Star Wars game all about space combat! Set after the events of the Return of the Jedi, Star Wars: Squadrons pits players in the cockpit of a host of iconic Star Wars spacecrafts such as X-wings and TIE fighters. With a dedicated single-player story as well as giant multiplayer space dogfights, there is plenty to do in Squadrons! What’s more, you also have the option to play the entirety of the game in virtual reality on PS VR!
Overall, I think June’s offering of PlayStation Plus games is fantastic! Operation: Tango looks fun and innovative and I’m hoping its cooperative focus will be similar to that of games such as A Way Out and It Takes Two. I used to play a lot of Street Fighter and Tekken back in the day, but it’s been a while since I’ve played a fighting game and Virtua Fighter 5 looks to be a great game to get back into the genre! Star Wars: Squadrons is a game I’ve been wanting to play for a long time so can’t wait to give it a go now that it will be on PS Plus!
Operation: Tango and Star Wars: Squadrons are available to PlayStation Plus members until Monday, July 5. Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown will be available to PlayStation Plus members until Monday, August 2.
