Report: The June 2017 PlayStation Plus Titles Include Killing Floor 2, Life Is Strange

According to a tweet from PlayStation Turkey, the two June 2017 PlayStation Plus free games on PlayStation 4 will be Killing Floor 2 and Life Is Strange. The tweet has since been deleted, but you can see it above, with their announcement tweet for the May 2017 PS+ titles below for comparison: #PSPlus Mayıs ayı oyunları belli oldu! pic.twitter.com/YeMQaKmAdE — PlayStation Türkiye (@PlayStationTR) April 26, 2017 Sony will officially announce the June 2017 PS+ titles on Wednesday, May 31, ahead of them going live on Tuesday, June 6. While it would seem Killing Floor 2 and Life Is Strange are the two PS4 games next month in North America and Europe, it’s worth noting that “there are regional differences from time to time.” Currently, Abzu for PS4 is only offered in North America, while Alienation for PS4 is only offered in Europe. Earlier this week, Sony revealed that were 26.4 million paid PlayStation Plus subscribers at the end of 2016. What do you think of the potential PS4 PS+ offerings in June?
