Video games are an expensive proposition, so save yourself some cash and check out these great deals for July that are all cheap as chips.
First up, PlayStation gamers can get their hands on a number of bangers this month courtesy of PlayStation Plus.
The service will cost you only $11.95 for the month, but during July you can play all three of the following:
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (PS4)
If you like your running and gunning, there’s no looking past the Call of Duty franchise. Black Ops 4 lacks a single-player portion but has stellar multiplayer and an addictive Zombies mode.
WWE 2K Battlegrounds (PS4)
Battlegrounds amps up the WWE action with over-the-top, arcade stylings and more cartoon-ish visuals. It also includes WWE superstars like Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock.
A Plague Tale: Innocence (PS5)
Helping your little brother survive within a plaugue-infested medieval France doesn’t sound like a great time, but this is an absolute surprise gem. So much so that a sequel was just recently announced during E3.

Xbox has a few buffets to take advantage of, but the best of these is Game Pass, which operates like the Netflix for Xbox.
There’s over 100 on offer for a monthly fee of $10.95, or you can just sign up for your first month and pay A SINGLE DOLLAR. Absolute madness.
Here’s what you can enjoy this month:
UFC 4 (Xbox Series X/S, XBO)
Definitely one for sports fans, UFC 4 is fast, frantic and absolutely brutal. Plus Real Player Motion makes everything feel even more lifelike if that’s your jam.
Farming Simulator 19 (Xbox Series X/S, XBO, PC)
See if the grass is greener when you can embrace your inner farmer with none of the financial worry. Be warned though, these games are serious business, so be prepared to work up a virtual sweat.
The Ascent (Xbox Series X/S, XBO, PC)
A solo and co-op action-shooter RPG set in a cyberpunk world, The Ascent looks like it’ll be a hell of a lot of fun with friends. Just worth noting it won’t come out until July 29.
While there’s never a shortage of deals with the number of PC-based shopfronts, Epic Games is the big winner here. There is a constant rotation of games they give away completely free, and can occasionally include huge titles like Grand Theft Auto. The only catch: you need to install Epic Games Launcher. Here’s what you can currently nab:
Free until July 16
Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead (PC)
The Walking Dead is no stranger to video games, but this puzzler definitely favours brain over brawn. It might not be your first choice but it’s actually one of the better tie-ins for the series.
Another Strategy title, this puzzle game mixes the likes of Bejewled with Victorian-era science fiction. It sounds strange because… it is, but worth a look if you’re after a unique change of pace.
Free Jul 16 – Jul 23
This sci-fi adventure comes from the creators of Myst – a popular classic that was often randomly thrown inside of Nutri-Grain boxes in the ‘90s. You’ll have to explore a broken alien landscape as you attempt to make it feel like home.
