Sony PlayStation Store and Plus Content Manager Chris Howe has unveiled the July 2013 PlayStation Plus content updates today, as follows:
Hi everyone! It's time to update you on all the new PlayStation Plus content coming your way in July.
As usual, there are three new PS3 games and two PS Vita titles to enjoy, as well as great titles such as Demon's Souls and ICO and Shadow of the Colossus that are already available.
New PlayStation 3 games
I am very excited to announce that next month's hero title will be the exceptional Battlefield 3, arriving on the service on 3rd July.
Built by the extremely talented team at DICE studios, Battlefield 3 is an FPS masterpiece from start to finish, taking full advantage of the Frostbite 2 game engine to deliver a superior visual experience.
Moving on to your next PS3 offering... I know that a lot of you have been waiting a while for this one, so I am happy to announce that we will be bringing Payday: The Heist to the service!
This action packed shooter will take you on a spectacular crime spree. You'll blast your way through a downtown bank vault robbery, manage hostages in an armoured car hijacking, and even engage in a midnight infiltration of a top-secret, high-security facility. Payday: The Heist challenges you with dynamic environments and adaptive enemy tactics, which means no scenario, will ever play out the same way twice.
And if you can't get enough Payday action make sure you visit the PlayStation Store for a huge saving on the Wolfpack DLC!
Your final offering for this month is Saints Row: The Third. Assume leadership of the Third Street Saints and rampage through the fictional city of Steelport in this outrageous open-world action epic where absolutely anything goes.
New PS Vita content
First up for PS Vita on 3rd July is Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus. For centuries, the Dragon Ninjas have protected the world and kept safe the most powerful weapons. But now, a powerful evil arises who will test the might of the ninjas. Take Dragon Sword in hand as the young Ryu Hayabusa, and journey to the farthest reaches of the world to cut down the malevolent Fiends!
And last but certainly not least, we are very happy to announce that from 3rd July you'll also be able to download the action packed Unit 13. Conquer 45 tactical missions as you help take down global terror networks and prove your place in the military elite.
As usual, over the coming weeks you can also expect exclusive additional PS Plus discounts. We will update you on these offers in the weekly Store posts.
