It appears that the PlayStation Plus free games lineup has been leaked, and if the leak ends up being accurate, then PS Plus users will likely be pleased with next month’s free games.

Glitched Africa recently received a photo from a reader that listed two games as free with the PS Plus logo, and those two games were Star Wars Battlefront 2 and UFC 3. Of course, both games are published by EA, who is set to launch a subscription service later this month.

Earlier this month, Sony decided to make a last-minute change to their PlayStation Plus free games lineup, as they replaced Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 with Detroit: Become Human. This was likely in response to the negativity surrounding the original lineup, which most considered to be extremely lackluster.

So, even if the PS Plus lineup for August did get leaked, it could end up being something completely different by the end of the month, as Sony could make yet another last-minute change before next month’s free games lineup goes live.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 was released back in November of 2017, and it received some pretty mixed reviews, which is par for the course when it comes to EA titles these days. The game is the sequel to the 2015 Battlefront reboot, and it’s the fourth major installment of the series. The game is, of course, heavily based on the Star Wars film franchise.

EA Sports UFC 3 was released in February of last year, and it’s by far the best game in the series so far. It’s essentially the same type of game as the first two, but the gameplay and graphics have been significantly improved. With this game being in the sports genre, it has all of the modes you would typically find in an annual or semi-annual sports title.

With July nearing its end, Sony will officially announce its PlayStation Plus free games lineup for August within the next week or so, which means that we won’t have to wait long to find out if the leak is correct. If it is, then next month’s lineup will be a significant improvement over this month’s pair of free games.

For now though, if you’re a PS Plus subscriber, you can download Detroit: Become Human and Horizon Chase Turbo for free. On top of that, you’ll also get Heavy Rain for free if you download Detroit: Become Human. So, essentially, you’re getting three games for free.
