Call of Duty: WWII Free As Part Of June’s PlayStation Plus Line-up
As part of the monthly lineup of PlayStation Plus freebies for June, subscribers will be able to get their hands on Call of Duty: WWII, Sony has announced.
With Sledgehammer Games on development duties, Call of Duty: WWII drops players into the action of last century’s most significant conflict alongside iconic moments such as the D-Day landing. It doesn’t exactly reinvent the Call of Duty Wheel, but there’s enough packed into Call of Duty: WWII to keep any FPS fan busy thanks in part to the franchise’s signature zombie mode.
We’d wager Activision is more than happy to hand out an older CoD title to shepherd players towards its newest titles, notably Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and the massively successful battle royale standalone spin-off, Warzone.
In rather unorthodox fashion, Activision’s shooter will be available for download before June starts in earnest. Subscribers can pick it up from today, May 26th. There are more games to come to complete June’s PlayStation Plus, but Sony remains tight-lipped. The gaming giant promises to reveal all later this week.
Rumors and a bizarre listing on the UK version of the PlayStation Store point towards Marvel’s Spider-Man as a possible accompaniment to Call of Duty: WWII. Said listing shows the game as free for PlayStation Plus subscribers when you try to purchase the standard edition. A PS Store glitch or early leak about Sony’s June plans? Who knows.
Given that Marvel’s Spider-Man is one of the jewels in Sony’s PlayStation exclusive crown and continues to sell exceptionally well nearly two years on from release, we’d take this with a hefty dose of salt before we receive official confirmation from Sony. If genuine, it would stand as one of the biggest titles to hit PlayStation Plus ever.
In the meantime, last month’s spread of Cities: Skylines and Farming Simulator 19 are still up for grabs until Monday, June 1st. These don’t quite have the critical acclaim or mass appeal of big-hitters like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Shadow of the Colossus, which we saw earlier this year, nevertheless, they are certainly worth exploring.
After all, they are free, and with many of us still cloistered up at home, anything to help pass the time without spending any money sure is welcome.
