According to official sources, PlayStation Plus will add three new Monthly Games for June 2023. This will also bring the revamped three-tiered service model for the subscription program into effect. This includes PS Now member migration and the new baseline PlayStation Plus Essential tier that will ditto the perks and fees of the old PlayStation Plus.
As the official Twitter handle of the console giant revealed today, the PlayStation Plus Monthly Games next month are going to be:
- Trek to Yomi
- NBA 2K23
- Jurassic World Evolution 2
The games will be automatically available to all PS Plus subscribers from June 1, 2023, including PS Now members, who will be migrated to the new PS Plus Premium tier.
What are the PlayStation Plus Monthly Games for June?
The first game in the upcoming PS Plus Essential trio is NBA 2K23. The newest addition to the long-running flagship sports title from 2K Games, NBA 2K23, adds the Jordan challenge, a feature retired after the NBA 2K11 iteration. This allows players to once again step into Michael Jordan's shoes as he relives the biggest highlight reels of his legendary career. Alongside this comes a number of quality-of-life tweaks and upgrades to MyCareer. 2K Games' take on NBA still remains the most entertaining and lifelike recreation of basketball on console games.
The second game coming this June to all PS Plus members is Jurassic World Evolution 2, the sequel to the hit tycoon game from Frontier Developments. Released in 2021, it gives the classic Planet Zoo formula a dinosaur infusion, as well as the newly added marine reptiles and pterosaurs. Other than the familiar zoo management paraphernalia, players can also experience a retelling of the 2018 feature film Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom with the game's campaign mode.
The most recent release in the June 2023 PS Plus bundle, Trek to Yomi, is the more successful, ambitious release from Devolver Digital this year by a long shot. Set in the Edo Period, the game bottles its side-scrolling samurai action within a breathtaking monochrome Kaneto Shindo-esque art direction.
