Christmas has come early for Playstation players.
May isn’t over yet but Sony has already announced the first free Playstation Plus game for June - and it’s a big one.
That’s because Call Of Duty: WWII is now free from today (May 26) until July 6.
After years of declining Call of Duty sales, the 2017 release of WWII helped get the franchise back on track and led to the popular Modern Warfare reboot.
The Nazi zombie zone was probably the most popular mode on the game.
On Monday afternoon, Playstation tweeted: "PS Plus members: Call of Duty: WWII is part of the monthly games lineup for June, and will be available for download starting May 26.
"We’ll share additional details of our monthly lineup later this week. Enjoy!"
At the time of its release, IGN’s Miranda Sanchez wrote: “Whether you’re crawling through the trenches in the campaign’s D-Day landing, fighting on the competitive battlefields, or lopping off gruesome undead soldiers’ heads in Nazi Zombies, Call of Duty: WWII offers a surprisingly fast-paced and fun World War II experience.”
Meanwhile, Destructoid‘s Chris Moyse described it as “one of the best-looking and feature-packed iterations of the franchise to date.”
Quite why Sony felt the need to announce the first free game in June before the end of May is unknown. The other free PS Plus games are yet to be announced, although rumours suggest it will be Marvel’s Spiderman.
May’s free games were Cities: Skylines and Farming Simulator 19 which gamers have until Monday, 1 June to download.
