The Drop – July 2015

July 1st, 2015 by

the drop logoMatt here, taking over The Drop for the currently indisposed Si Stevens.

E3 is over and done with, and we’re all now looking forward to the forthcoming year of new releases whilst simultaneously wondering how the hell we’re going to pay for all these games. Not to worry though, here’s our round up of your monthly freebies from Microsoft, Sony and EA.

Microsoft double up on both platforms this month, and there’s some corkers in there. Black Flag is the last Assassin’s Creed that I really enjoyed, and Gears Of War 3 multiplayer is still magnificent. Gears and Beers one Friday night, anyone?

Xbox One - Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and So Many Me

Xbox 360 – Gears Of War 3 and Plants vs Zombies

Sony continues with their 2 games per platform approach, with an extra 2 for you lucky PS4 owners thanks to crossbuy. Tip for everyone; You must play Rocket League. I INSIST UPON IT.

PlayStation 4 - Rocket League and Styx Master of Shadows
PlayStation 3 - rain and Mousecraft (PS3/PS4/Vita crossbuy)
PlayStation Vita - Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved and Entwined (PS4/Vita crossbuy)

Although not strictly included in this month’s PS+ offerings, it’s worth mentioning the sudden arrival of the much delayed Driveclub PS+ Edition.

I’ll take this opportunity to give Simon a tip of the hat for his blind guesswork prediction last month that Titanfall and Dragon Age: Inquisition will land on EA Acesss. Titanfall is available now, with DA:I coming later on down the line.

    Nice one Matt. There is no denying the value you get for Xbox Live and PS Plus. I just don’t understand people moaning about the games they give away. Really if you don’t like them don’t download them. There is something for everyone in the above lists. Keep up the great work Matt and Si.

    Wowzers! You’re right Solm, this really is great value for money worthy of every penny. Its astounding to see just how much the platforms offer..I have a Vita and PS4 which are both saturated with titles offering a variety of genres…

    …is this in danger of shadowing retail releases? I know I tend to hold off purchasing in the vain hope that maybe it’ll drop on PS plus (Never Alone being a prime example).
