After several months of mediocre at best free games selections for PS Plus users, Sony Interactive Entertainment is set to redeem itself with an awesome selection for its June catalogue thanks to the inclusion of Firaxis Games’ XCOM 2 into the mix.

As confirmed by PlayStation Asia’s official account (see above), the turn-based action strategy game featuring perma-death is easily the highlight of the games available for free for all PS Plus users throughout June.
If you have no idea what we just said in the last line; picture a highly stylized and detailed chessboard featuring up to six unique, fully customizable XCOM soldiers combating alien forces who have taken over planet Earth. Each turn, cover and decision matter as you battle against enemies with psychic abilities, mutons, chryssalids and Advent forces.
Needless to say, it is one of our favorite games ever and we highly recommend you folks to try it out once the game is free to download starting June 7th 2018.
