Quick Summary

Borderlands 3 is among the new games available to PS Plus subscribers in July.

The funny, hardcore FPS is now available to download at no extra cost along with NHL 24 and Among Us.

PlayStation Plus subscribers get a huge treat this month, as Sony has added one of my favourite ever shooters to the service to download for free.

Borderlands 3 has the right blend of hardcore FPS action, comedy and general weirdness to make it a must play – something agreed on by Metacritic, which gives the PS5 version an aggregated score of 91.

You'll can now find out why, as it's been added to the monthly PS Plus game drop for all subscribers – whether you're on Essential, Extra or Premium.

It's available to download from today, Tuesday 2 July 2024, for both PS5 and PS4.

The game is joined by NHL 24, which is also available for both consoles. You won't need an EA Play account to play (and keep) the sports title that refreshed the control system this year for a more immersive feel.

The last in the new trio of titles that's come to PS Plus is Among Us, the infamous online multiplayer party game. Along with a selection of other online players, you have to keep your spaceship running while avoiding being assassinated by a saboteur. Either that, or eliminate your crew mates as you've been designated the Imposter.

It's huge fun and if you've never played it before, now's a great time.

Also available to all PS Plus members in July will be a reward pack for Genshin Impact.  The exclusive, free bundle will contain 160 Primogems, 4 Fragile Resin, 20 Hero's Wit, 30 Mystic Enhancement Ore, and 150,000 Mora.

This will be available to all players who download Genshin Impact from the PlayStation Store from 16 July.

Check the PS Plus section of your PlayStation's dashboard to download the latest batch of games.
