Another month, another batch of games is being made available for PlayStation Plus owners! As usual, PlayStation Plus subscribers will get six games that become available on the first Tuesday of every month. So what's in this month's batch?

PlayStation 4 owners will be nabbing XCOM 2 and Trials Fusion this month. XCOM 2 is a turn-based tactical game where you play as a team of special forces tasked with removing aliens from Earth. Along the way, you'll build up a resistance, get a cool base, and probably miss a shot that you had a 90% chance of getting. You can read our review of it here. On the other hand, Trials Fusion is a goofy platformer where you ride a motorcycle through 2.5d levels and attempt not to fall over. It features an extensive level creator, crazy futuristic levels, and probably more but I'm not actually sure since I'm not good enough to get past the first few levels. You can read our review here.

Following that, we got the PlayStation 3 games. First, you'll get Zombie Driver HD. This top-down driving game has you completing tasks while driving through crowds of zombies. It's also in high definition which is cool I guess. You'll also get Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. This third-person tactical shooter has you and a team of soldiers investigating the mysterious death of another team. Along the way, you'll use neat future gadgets to kill lots of terrorists.

Last and, let's be honest here, least (well at least by how Sony treats it) is the PlayStation Vita. Vita owners will get Atomic Ninjas, a multiplayer competitive platformer where ninjas on jetpacks play capture the flag, deathmatch, and other game modes. They'll also get Squares, a puzzle game where your goal is to turn all the gray squares blue. Maybe better luck next month Vita owners.

All of these games will be available from June 5th until July 3rd. This means it's your last chance to grab May's games, which was Beyond: Two Souls and Rayman Legends for the PlayStation 4, Risen 3: Titan Lords and Eat Them! for the PlayStation 3, and King Oddball and Furmines for the PlayStation Vita.
