June’s PlayStation Plus games include spies, squadrons, and Virtua Fighter

Sneak around or take to the stars

Sony has announced its PlayStation Plus lineup for June, the month of E3 2021, and it’s a good mix of both old and new.

On the PlayStation 5 side, Plus subscribers can pick up Operation: Tango, a new upcoming co-op infiltration game. One player acts as the spy on the ground, infiltrating a locale in-person, while the other player is their hacker-in-the-chair, navigating firewalls and helping them solve puzzles.

It’s launching on June 1, and it supports both cross-platform play and Friend Pass play. If you’re not getting it through PlayStation Plus’ PS5 offering, you can also pick it up on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, or PC via Epic or Steam.

If space is more your style, PlayStation 4 Plus subscribers can get Star Wars: Squadrons, last year’s solid spaceship sim. The recently announced Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown rounds out the offering, reigniting the fire for battle on June 1.

All in all, it’s a really solid month for PlayStation Plus—one new game, one resurrected game, and one stellar Star Wars game, with a mix of good single-player, co-op, and multiplayer offerings. As someone who’s been neglecting to redeem their Plus games in recent months, I’m setting a reminder for June 1.
