May’s irreversible slide into June means another batch of games for PlayStation Plus subscribers, and this month they look an awful lot like Call of Duty WW2 and Star Wars Battlefront 2.
Call of Duty WW2 released in 2017 and marked the long-running first-person shooter series’ return to its Second World War roots, having zipped all around history (and occasionally the future) in the intervening years. Alongside the series’ perennially popular multiplayer modes, it offered up a full single-player story campaign – following the 1st Infantry Division’s battles on the Western Front – and a Nazi-themed Zombies mode for co-operative play.
Eurogamer contributor Jon Denton liked what he saw on release, calling Call of Duty WW2 “quite the package” in his Recommended review. “By returning the series to its roots, Sledgehammer has made the series feel relevant again,” he wrote, “Call of Duty WW2 isn’t just a throwback – it’s the best entry in the series for quite some time.”
