Team up to save the world in this cooperative spy adventure, challenging you and a friend to join up online** to complete dangerous missions across the globe in a high-tech near-future world.

Combine skill sets from different points of view – playing either Hacker or Agent – to overcome asymmetrical challenges, working in tandem with only your voice to link you. Teamwork is crucial, and communication is key!

Note: Operation: Tango requires both players to have access to a working microphone. 

Operation Tango will be available to PlayStation Plus members until Monday, July 5.

Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown | PS4

Sega’s iconic one-on-one battler gets remade for a new generation by Yakuza and Judgment developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio.

This console exclusive debuts on PlayStation Plus, allowing both VF veterans and newcomers to experience the intense martial arts combat, deep strategy, and intricately balanced gameplay of the groundbreaking 3D fighter in stunning HD.

New online features – like custom tournaments supporting up to 16 players and live spectating – join classic modes like Rank Match, Arcade, and VF5’s famously robust Training to deliver the definitive Virtua Fighter experience.

The game will not only be available on PlayStation Plus for about two months – June and July – but it’ll also be releasing on PlayStation Now in June! PlayStation Plus members can enter Virtua Fighter 5’s arenas starting Tuesday, June 1.

Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown will be available to PlayStation Plus members until Monday, August 2.

Star Wars: Squadrons

Master the art of starfighter combat in frenetic multiplayer space dogfights, and learn what it means to be a pilot in a thrilling Star Wars single-player story set after the events of Return of the Jedi and seen from alternating perspectives of two factions.

The New Republic fights for freedom. The Empire demands order. Take control of iconic craft such as the X-wing and TIE fighter, customize loadouts and cosmetics, divert power between weapons, shields and engines while immersing yourself in the cockpit.

You’ll also have the option to play the entirety of the game in virtual reality on PS VR***!

Star Wars: Squadrons will be available to PlayStation Plus members until Monday, July 5.”

We have a few days left before the PS Plus games become available on June 1. If you’ve yet to download the PS Plus games for May, you have until May 31 to add games including Battlefield V, Stranded Deep, and Wreckfest: Drive Hard.

All in all, the PS Plus games have been pretty solid over the last few months with May offering Battlefield V and June offering Star Wars: Squadrons. It makes us eager to see what the July 2021 lineup will look like!
