PS Plus shock: Power of June line-up revealed ahead of July 2020 free PS4 games news
PS Plus July 2020 selection of free PS4 games will be revealed soon, and ahead of it stats have revealed how well the June 2020 line-up has gone down with fans. The current PlayStation Plus is an absolute belter, with two major titles included as free PS4 downloads – Call of Duty WWII and Star Wars Battlefront 2. If you’re a PS Plus member who hasn’t downloaded these free PS4 games then time is running out for you to do so.
And ahead of the PS Plus July 2020 line-up reveal, which is expected next week, stats have revealed the impact of the June line-up.
Gamstat in a post online has revealed that Call of Duty WWII and Star Wars Battlefront 2 are the PS4 titles with the most number of new players in the past month.
Between May 21 and June 21 Call of Duty WW2 received the biggest number of new players on the PS4, an increase of over 8.2million.
While Star Wars Battlefront 2 was in second position after gaining over 4.4million new players.

For Star Wars Battlefront 2, that is not too far off an increase of over 50 per cent on the game’s previous total player numbers.
While Call of Duty WW2 gained more new players in the aforementioned period than the most recent COD title.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare, as well as the free-to-play Warzone title, gained over 3.8million new players between May 21 and June 21.
Call of Duty WW2 has a total player count of 43.5million players, according to Gamstat, which lags behind the overall numbers for Modern Warfare and Black Ops 3.
Black Ops 3, which previously was a PS Plus free download bonus title, is the PS4 game with the second highest player count ever – on over 72.4million players.
This is behind the number one most popular title – Grand Theft Auto V – which has over 139million players.
The stats from Gamstat reveal how well the June 2020 line-up has gone down with PS Plus fans, and what a tough act the July 2020 line-up has to follow.
But it looks like Sony could have something extra special planned for their next PlayStation Plus line-up.
Next week will mark the tenth anniversary of PS Plus, and it remains to be seen if Sony does anything special to mark the occasion.
Could we see some new themes launched, or a special new PS Plus sale, or a blockbuster selection of free PS4 games included in the line-up?
This all remains to be seen, but fans thankfully don’t have too much longer to wait to find out.
If Sony sticks to their typical reveal schedule then the PS Plus July 2020 line-up should be announced on Wednesday July 1 at 4.30pm BST.
The only caveat to this is last month Sony shook up the dates on which they announced the upcoming PlayStation Plus titles.
The two games included in the PS Plus June 2020 line-up were revealed on separate days, and it remains to be seen if Sony continues this trend for July.
