PS Plus Free Games June 2023
In June 2023, PS Plus subscribers can download NBA 2K23, Jurassic World Evolution 2, and Trek to Yomi for free. Here is all you need to know about PS Plus Monthly games June 2023:
NBA 2K23 builds on the series’ best game yet with even more features to keep hoops fans busy until next year’s version drops. From new online modes to a new Jordan Challenge mode that celebrates the legacy of the league’s most iconic player, there are many modes and ways to play in NBA 2K23.
Visual Concepts has done an excellent job refining the on-court gameplay to make it both realistic and enjoyable to play. They’ve added an adrenaline meter for the defense to make the game feel more genuine. They’ve also made some adjustments to the game, like reducing the power on defensive blocks and straight steals, which reflects how NBA teams focus on fundamental on-the-ball defense over flashy moves to prevent scoring.
Other notable new additions include rim hangs that allow players to celebrate by leaning over the hoop to show off their jump shots. And a Pro Stick skill set lets players enhance their moves at the rim with up-and-down layups, euro-steps, and more.
And while the usual satirical quirks and humor are still present in MyCareer, this year’s installment tells a more genuine story about the pressures modern athletes face on social media. And, of course, as is the case with any NBA 2K title, microtransactions are woven deeply into the fabric of the game.
Jurassic World Evolution 2
Jurassic World Evolution 2 takes its predecessor’s core theme park management sim mechanics. It adds a cretaceous cherry on top with new modes.
These dinosaurs feel more alive than ever, and smart tweaks to some of the original game’s frustrating aspects. While it isn’t a technical marvel, this Frontier Developments title walks the line between accessible and deep with ease, making it one of the best dinosaur games on the market.
With an expanded roster of over 75 breathtaking prehistoric species (including highly requested flying and marine reptiles), you can build awe-inspiring habitats across four different biomes.
The game also introduces bioengineering, allowing dinosaurs to be customized with bold new colors and altered genomes that unlock unique traits.
With more than three engaging game modes, including a campaign mode featuring the return of Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm, JWE2‘s storytelling is as entertaining as it is informative.

Trek to Yomi
It’s not often that a game bypasses video game norms and provides a completely unique experience. Trek to Yomi does just that and delivers a compelling tale of duty, honor, loss, and revenge.
This black-and-white samurai game wears its influences, namely Akira Kurosawa, on its sleeve, and it shows how the story plays out.
From the monochromatic visuals to the clashing steel of swords, this is one of the most stylized and unique presentations we’ve seen in a modern game.
Combat in the game is side-scrolling and combines combo attacks with a system where players can parry enemies. Getting into the rhythm of the game’s combat can be difficult, especially with the way it can sometimes force players to input combinations that they weren’t planning on using.
Overall, though, combat in the game is still a lot of fun. It’s not quite as good as in titles like Sifu or Ghost of Tsushima, but it’s close and is always satisfying to dispatch enemies one at a time.
