Detroit: Become Human is free on PS4 - Sony rescues PS Plus July 2019 line-up!

Detroit Become Human PS Plus

Sony's July 2019 PS Plus line-up of free games was underwhelming with PES 2019, but the PS4 community have now been spoiled with Detroit: Become Human.

The free PS Plus games for July 2019 on the PlayStation 4 were previously announced to be Horizon Chase Turbo and Pro Evolution Soccer 2019, and - despite them both being excellent titles - the gaming community was understandably underwhelmed following June's Sonic Mania and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. Fortunately, Sony has since decided to spoil gamers rotten by treating them to a free download of both Detroit: Become Human and Heavy Rain.

Detroit: Become Human is free on PS4 - Sony rescues PS Plus July 2019 line-up!

Horizon: Chase Turbo and Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 were announced as the PlayStation Plus freebies for July 2019, but that is no longer the case as Konami's superior to FIFA football game has been substituted for Detroit: Become Human.

PS Plus subscribers will still be able to download Horizon: Chase Turbo for free following the switch, yet there's no denying that Detroit: Become Human is the more attractive acquisition.

Although David Cage deserves the ridiculing he often receives for being a pretentious writer who is only a subtle genius in his own mind, Detroit: Become Human is still a fantastic experience that every PlayStation 4 owner should play.

The themes are ham-fisted but compelling enough, the direction is well done, the action is frantic, and - best of all - the characters are all likeable and they can die at any time unlike the horribly boring and inconsequential mess Beyond: Two Souls.

Detroit: Become Human makes you feel like the screenwriter to a summer blockbuster because of how it allows you to constantly mould the narrative with choices that result in far greater variations than minute changes to the dialogue.

It's a game you'll no doubt play repeatedly like Until Dawn, and at the cost of nothing it's an absolute steal.

PS Plus subscribers can download Detroit: Become Human and Heavy Rain from the PlayStation Store for free right now.

In other gaming news, CD Projekt RED might have spelled bad news for Cyberpunk 2077 by horribly censoring The Witcher card game Gwent.
