The PlayStation Plus game slate for June 2023 has been revealed, with NBA 2K23, Trek to Yomi and Jurassic World Evolution 2 joining the subscription service early next month.
The three games will be available to download on both PS4 and PS5 consoles from June 6 through July 3 at no extra charge for individuals with PlayStation Plus Essential, Extra or Premium subscriptions.
NBA 2K23 was released back in September 2022, bringing with it a plethora of online and single-player game modes, including the reintroduction of Jordan’s Challenge, which tasks fans with recreating 15 moments from the famous player’s career. PlayStation Plus subscribers also get access to “exclusive monthly MyTEAM packs,” according to the PlayStation Plus PlayStation blog post Detailed new additions.
In IGN’s 6/10 review, we said the game’s improvements to the playground “should have brought it to an easy halt, but the constant annoyance of pay-to-win microtransactions makes it even harder to enjoy.”
Journey to Yumi
Meanwhile, Journey to Yomi follows the story of young samurai Horoki, as he travels “beyond life and death” to protect his city, and to fulfill the vow he made to his dying master. In IGN’s 7/10 review we called Journey to Yomi “a short but captivating journey that’s like playing through a Japanese monochrome movie”.
Jurassic World Evolution 2
Frontier Developments’ Jurassic World Evolution 2 rounds out the June lineup, allowing players to relive the missteps of the cult movie franchise while sparring with dinosaurs and managing guests’ needs across a series of theme parks. The second entry in the series includes four game modes along with an expanded collection of dinosaurs ranging from the noble Triceratops to the hungry T-Rex.
In IGN’s 7/10 review, we celebrated Jurassic World Evolution 2’s “excellent dinosaurs,” and its improvements over its predecessor, while lamenting some of the game’s relatively shallow management mechanics.
Meanwhile, subscribers still have time to download May’s PlayStation Plus offering — GRID Legends, Chivalry 2, and Descenders — before the games disappear from the service on June 6.
