The PlayStation Plus monthly games lineup for June is here! From Tuesday, 1 June new titles Operation: Tango and Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown will make their PlayStation debut, while Star Wars: Squadrons will give players the chance to pilot iconic starcraft like the X-wing and TIE fighter.

Let’s take a closer look at the games

Operation: Tango | PS5 version only*

Team up to save the world in this cooperative spy adventure, challenging you and a friend to join up online** to complete dangerous missions across the globe in a high-tech near-future world. Combine skill sets from different points of view – playing either Hacker or Agent – to overcome asymmetrical challenges, working in tandem with only your voice to link you. Teamwork is crucial, and communication is key! Watch the trailer here.

Operation: Tango will be available to PlayStation Plus members until Monday, 5 July.

NOTE: Operation: Tango requires both players to have access to a working microphone.

Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown | PS4

Sega’s iconic one-on-one battler gets remade for a new generation by Yakuza and Judgment developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio. This console exclusive debuts on PlayStation Plus, allowing both VF veterans and newcomers to experience the intense martial arts combat, deep strategy, and intricately balanced gameplay of the ground-breaking 3D fighter in stunning HD. New online features – like custom tournaments supporting up to 16 players and live spectating – join classic modes like Rank Match, Arcade, and VF5’s famously robust Training to deliver the definitive Virtua Fighter experience.

Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown will be available to PlayStation Plus members until Monday, 2 August.

Star Wars: Squadrons

Master the art of starfighter combat in frenetic multiplayer space dogfights, and learn what it means to be a pilot in a thrilling Star Wars single-player story set after the events of Return of the Jedi and seen from alternating perspectives of two factions. The New Republic fights for freedom. The Empire demands order. Take control of iconic craft such as the X-wing and TIE fighter, customise loadouts and cosmetics, divert power between weapons, shields and engines while immersing yourself in the cockpit. Watch the trailer here.

Star Wars: Squadrons will be available to PlayStation Plus members until Monday, 5 July.
