Two 2019 sports titles are nothing to sneeze at, even if the current group is lackluster.

Playstation Plus will get Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 and Horizon Chase Turbo tomorrow.

I remember when I used to envy XBox Live members...now, not so much. :cry:
Although Castlevania SotN is a classic and still holds up pretty well.

If you're a PS4 owner and PlayStation Plus subscriber hoping to settle down with a quality football simulator next month, you're out of luck. In an unprecedented move, Sony is swapping out its line-up of PS Plus games for July.

Subscribers had been promised free access to Konami's PES 2019 football game as part of the online subscription package this month, but it's now being removed and replaced. Instead, you will be getting the vastly different Detroit: Become Human Digital Deluxe edition from developers Quantic Dream.
Which I just spent $20 on ordering from Amazon.

Kotaku
Konami gave a short, but clear statement to Gamespot earlier today which blamed Sony for PES 2019 being removed.

“This decision was made by Sony and so please make an inquiry to Sony.”

Gamespot is also reporting that a brand manager for PES also told the outlet that he had no idea that the change was going to happen. “I cannot really tell you what happened because I just found out today, in the morning when I opened my laptop. I can’t really explain.”

Sony itself hasn’t given a detailed or specific reason for pulling PES 2019 from the lineup. In statements sent to both Eurogamer and Gamespot, the company apologized for causing any “inconvenience” but didn’t actually explain why they removed the game at the last minute.

I was looking forward to PES and had just bought Detroit: Become Human 3 weeks ago, so yeah, kind of bummed too.

Gold is still a thing. GamePass Ultimate is basically Gold plus GamePass.

I just bought No Man's Sky on sale on the PS store, so I'm sure that will be one of September's free games.

Whew. It's Darksiders 3 and Batman: Arkham Knight. Pretty solid offerings and I own neither of them.
