The July 2019 Free PS Plus Games are : Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 and Horizon Turbo Chase!
I will admit, when my eyes saw “Horizon” I did a mental “finally!” and then I was pretty shocked by the next few words!
To say the least, Reddit is not so pleased!
I bought NBA 2K19 and was pretty happy with the purchase but it also only cost me three dollars. So I’m sure I’ll get some play out of both PES 2019 and Horizon Chase Turbo.
Horizon Chase Turbo is a racing game straight from the 90s (and apparently a free mobile game, that we all learned from E3 2019, we all love), and PES is either your preferred soccer game, or it is the game that is not FIFA.
I know of PES as it is PlayStation Access’ Rob and Dave’s favorite soccer game as they have plenty of videos regarding the game.
. . .
Referring to them, here are my peeps’ YouTube videos.
Smart to have Rob do the video. Now that I think of it, when was the last time I heard Dave do a voiceover? It seems to be either Nathan, Rob, or Elle these days.
Adam is not thrilled by the games.
Ben isn’t too thrilled either.
. . .
Here are the trophy guides for both games.
Never a good sign when playstationtrophies.org doesn’t have a trophy guide for a game.
I’ll probably play a tad of Horizon Chase Turbo and then just go down the list for PES 2019 and see how I take to the basic trophies before tackling the ones that require time.
On the PlayStation store, there is a “Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 PS Plus Member Bonus” that is free and I’ve downloaded. As far as I can tell, it doesn’t stay anything of what it does. For Horizon Chase Turbo, there is a demo we can enjoy but I can just wait the few extra days and just play the game.
The games would usually cost us, $20 for Horizon Chase Turbo and the Standard Edition for PES 2019 is $30, so $50 total. PES 2019, like NBA 2K19, also has coins you can buy for in-game purchases but I’m not going to do any of that.

In other games, my casual break from Lego Marvel Superheroes 2 is still going on. I’m at the part where I have three chapters to choose from and I’m just going down the proper order, so I need Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil to help me out in the Noir hub. I do have the x2, x4, and x6 multipliers on, so that feels like a real victory.

While looking over the PL Plus Specials (I though it had a name but it has a nice pink and purple banner), none of the two dollar games jumped out at me. What did though, was Dead by Daylight, which was a free game way back in August 2018. I figured I’ll attempt to play it as I’m not much of a horror guy but I didn’t even attempt to play it and I really took to For Honor.
I look over the trophy list:
Since there isn’t a single player mode, there were no simple trophies to get but I’m committed to at least get the “reach level ten” trophy. I’m still not very good at being either a survivor nor a killer, but I’m having fun playing it.
My answer to the question of, What is your favorite horror franchise?” is always Halloween! And part of the sale is Michael Myers, so I bought him, as he’s typically eight dollars and on sale, he’s four.
Thanks to GameSpot for hosting the trailer!
Halloween DLC comes with both Michael Myers and his sister, Laurie.
The DLC, that must have been free at the time (it could still be, I’m not sure now that I own it), was the Lullaby for the Dark. From the trophy guide above, it says it is free, so it must always be free.
Thanks to YouTuber CaptainABSea for hosting the video! And for having a clever screen name!
Looks like they have four videos regarding the game so I’ll try to watch the other three! Turns out, they just read it from the bio page but I was like, I really want to play as the Huntress now!
The DLC also comes with survivor, David King, as well.
The guide recommends playing first as Nea so that’s what I’ve been doing.
The nice part is that the games don’t last that long, especially if you are as bad at it as I am. I’m lasting a tad longer, but not by much. Also, as the killer, I’m the ideal guy, as I might spot a survivor but then they can get away.
So in order to try to get gud, and to sample different aspects of the game (and to get my money’s worth), I’ve been doing three game of Nea, David, Laurie, and then two games of Michael Myers and the Huntress. They call him, The Shape, in the game, which is a little fun.
Also, I like it mentally as it gives me something new to do as well, playing this way.
I made a list of “doable” trophies so I’m trying to try to get as many as I can or at least, get one trophy, and see where we go from there.
I’ve been making a point of giving whomever I play with a thumbs up on the total screen, as that feels good to do, there isn’t a trophy for “earning 100 thumbs up” but I figure it is nice to do anyway.
The game also added Ghostface from the Scream franchise and I’m sort of tempted to get him, as Scream would probably be a close second on my list.
