Today, Sony has announced some changes to the free games lineup of PlayStation Plus for the month of July. Originally, the lineup was set to include Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 and Horizon Chase Turbo but Pro Evolution Soccer will be replaced by Detroit: Become Human Digital Deluxe Edition. “Update: We are making a swap to the PS Plus games lineup for July. This month, we are adding Detroit: Become Human Digital Deluxe Edition, which also includes Heavy Rain, to the July games lineup instead of Pro Evolution Soccer 2019. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
Sony hasn’t said why they decided to make the change but they decided at the last second as July’s PlayStation Plus games were made available starting today. What’s interesting about the change is the fact that you’ll be getting three games instead of two. Detroit: Become Human Digital Deluxe Edition comes with Heavy Rain; both games are interactive narrative games that were developed by Quantic Dream. The studio and their games focus on choice and consequence.
“In Detriot: Become Human discover what it really means to be human in a powerful emotional journey made of choice and consequences. Set in Detroit City during the year 2038, the city has been revitalized by the invention and introduction of Androids into everyday life. But when Androids start behaving as if they are alive, events begin to spin out of control. Step into the roles of the story’s three playable characters, each with unique perspectives as they face their new way of life.”
Heavy Rain is a psychological thriller filled with innumerable twists and turns as four characters are on the hunt for a murderer known only as the Origami Killer – named after his macabre calling card of leaving behind folded paper shapes at crime scenes. Each character follows their own leads as they make a desperate attempt to prevent the Origami Killer from claiming a new victim.
The other game, Horizon Chase Turbo is “a love-letter to the iconic, just one-more-go racers of the arcade’s golden age. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Out Run, Top Gear, and Rush, developer Aquirus Game Studio captures the essence of the 16-bit era with style, with modern visuals, a soundtrack with insane arpeggios, and classic split-screen couch multiplayer.”
