PlayStation drops free game fans have been desperate to finally play

PlayStation drops free game fans have been desperate to finally play

PlayStation Plus' latest freebie is the perfect kind of free game

PlayStation's latest free game is one a lot of fans have been desperate to try out for a long time. You know, inasmuch as you can be desperate to try a game without wanting to actually pay for it.

The last few months have seen PlayStation Plus get some genuinely great games in, if you're still not sure about whether or not to join (or upgrade to a higher tier). Subscribers can currently play one of the best action-adventure games out there, one of the PlayStation 5's best-looking games, and a brand-new release that's winning rave reviews.

But over on the lowest tier of them all, the humble PlayStation Plus Essential, there's a new free game that has tongues wagging.

In case you missed it earlier this week, the PlayStation Plus Essential free games for July 2023 are: Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Alan Wake Remastered and Endling - Extinction is Forever. A little something for everyone in there, I think you'd agree. Or maybe you wouldn't. I don't know your life.

Anyway, it's Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War that has a lot of gamers particularly excited this time around, which is... more than a little surprising. The 2020 Call Of Duty was quite poorly received among fans at the time (although when are Call Of Duty fans ever happy about anything?).

Still, there are non-hardcore Call Of Duty lovers out there who have been curious to try out Black Ops Cold War's single-player campaign (widely agreed to be a bright spot in the game) without paying full whack for the divisive multiplayer. This, of course, makes it the perfect PlayStation Plus freebie.

"I've always wanted to play the cold war campaign, might do that," wrote one fan on Reddit.

Another responded: "It’s great, lot of fun, contrary to what most COD haters say. Zombies is fun too."

Elsewhere a fan was delighted to see their patience had paid off and they could finally play Alan Wake Remastered.

"I’ve been playing chicken with Alan Wake," they explained. "I figured it would show up on one of these services before 2 comes out but it’s also getting really close to release and I hadn’t heard anything.

My Xbox broke before Alan Wake came out way back in the original release and I always wanted to play it and was just walled off of it all this time. Finally."
