The PlayStation Plus Game Lineup for June 2023 has been revealed, with NBA 2K23, Trek to Yomi, and Jurassic World Evolution 2 joining the subscription service early next month.
All three games will be available to download on both PS4 and PS5 consoles from June 6 up until July 3 at no extra charge for individuals with PlayStation Plus Essential, Extra or Premium subscriptions.
NBA 2K23’s released back in September 2022, bringing with it a slew of online and single player game modes, including the reintroduction of the Jordan Challenge, which tasks fans with recreating 15 moments from the iconic player’s illustrious career. PlayStation Plus subscribers also get access to “exclusive monthly MyTEAM packs”, according to the PlayStation blog post detailing the new additions.
In IGN’s 6/10 review we said that the game’s on-court improvements “ should’ve led it to an easy layup, but the ever-present nuisance of pay-to-win microtransactions make it much harder to enjoy”.
Trek to Yomi
Trek to Yomi meanwhile follows the story of the young samurai Horoki, as he voyages “beyond life and death” to protect his town, and fulfil the vow made to his dying master. In IGN’s 7/10 review we described Trek to Yomi as “a brief but captivating journey that’s like playing through a monochromatic Japanese movie”.
Jurassic World Evolution 2
Frontier Developments’ Jurassic World Evolution 2 rounds out the the June lineup, allowing players to relive the mistakes of the cult movie franchise as they wrangle dinosaurs and manage guest needs across a series of parks. The second entry in the series features four game modes along with an expanded cast of dinosaurs ranging from the noble triceratops to the ever hungry T. rex.
In IGN’s 7/10 review we celebrated Jurassic World Evolution 2’s “excellent dinosaurs”, and 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.
