Sony has announced the July8217;s line-up of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers, and it includes an absolute doozy for football fans.
The headliner for July is Pro Evolution Soccer 2019, the latest game in the long-standing Konami footy sim series and, in our opinion one of the best in its history.
The arrival of the PES 2019 game coincides with a busy summer of soccer, with the Women8217;s World Cup, African Cup of Nations, Copa America and CONCAF Gold Cup all happening concurrently.

In our Pro Emo 2019 review, published last year, we awarded the game a solid 4/5 stars (the same rating as FIFA 19), praising its improved and realistic animations, detailed player models and stunning football gameplay.
Our own Max Parker wrote: 8220;Pro Evolution Soccer remains the best, most accurate representation of football you can play without suddenly realising you can play out from the back like Harry Maguire.8221;
Max bemoaned the loss of the Champions League license and the relative lack of game modes, but added 8220;everything that’s missing just becomes background noise when you actually get on the pitch and start playing.8221;
The second free game for PlayStation Plus members in July is a dose of nostalgia through Horizon Chase Turbo, which is self-professed love letter to the arcade racers of yesteryear.
In a post on the PlayStation blog, Sony writes: 8220;Drawing inspiration from the likes of Out Run, Top Gear and Rush, developer Aquaris Game Studio captures the essence of the 16-bit era with style, with modern visuals, a thumping soundtrack with insane arpeggios and classic split-screen couch multiplayer.8221;
Both titles are available to download free from July 2nd until August 5th.
In the meantime, there8217;s still timer to pick up Sonic Mania and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection until July 1. Get 8217;em while the going is good, folks.
