If you are eagerly waiting for new PS4 releases, like the upcoming Crash Racing game remastered, Madden NFL 2020 or the Hideo Kojima blast Death Stranding, Sony got you covered to ease the waiting time. From 4th of June, Borderlands 1 and 2 and Sonic Mania are available for free, for all PS Plus users!

It seems like Sonic is on a role this year with the release of the new game Sonic Team Racing and the movie that is in developing Sonic The Hedgehog. Just to put a little more excitement for the Sumo Digital's character, as we mentioned, Sonic Mania is free to play this June in PlayStation Plus.

You can experience the game celebrating the past and the future in Sonic Mania with its all-new 2D Sonic adventure running at 60FPS infused with HD retro-style graphics. You can play multiple characters like the explosively fast Sonic, Tails, or even power through obstacles with Knuckles.

This retro game will act as a drive through memory lane, with an exciting new twist on classic zones, while fighting against new bosses, as well as Dr. Eggman's evil robot army. You can also go head-to-head with players in Competition Mode or enjoy the game in Co-Op Mode with a friend.

Sonic Mania is a great game that will bring on the fun and excitement to you and your friends. It also passed all the reviews with a great score topping up 8.7/10 in IGN.

As we mentioned earlier, this year is a big year for Sonic with the new Team Sonic Racing game that was released on May 21st. Team Sonic Racing is published by Sega and developed by Sumo Digital for the ultimate racing game. The lunch price for this game is $40 is it sparked a fire in Sonic's fans.

The game is designed with Sonic Adventure Mode, which is a single-player component of Team Sonic Racing. In the adventure mode, you can choose between standard races or quickly car mini-games to progress through the story. Mini-games prove to be fun as they have things like a drift through objects, blow up robots which are a test for the mechanics of the game.

The story mode is under six hours long and somehow it does not encourages replayability just because even when you choose a different character, the story mode stays the same. There are even no significant rewards at the end of the races.

However, the good thing is that the story mode somehow manages to infuse more personality into each of Sonic's friends and get to know them a little bit better. Team Sonic Racing has a lot of the tracks from the first Sonic & Sega All-Star Racing, which is a good thing bringing some nostalgia to the trip. The mechanics of the racing feel different from the last two Sumo Digital's racing games. Cars are definitely heavier and seem like they are slower across the track.

The structure of the races is changed as well, there are teams of three and with the racers, you can exchange items as well as riding each other slipstreams for a speed boost. This brings a lot of excitement and unpredictability to the race which is always a good thing.

The new Sonic kart racing game will bring you lots of fun with an ingenious team-based twist as well as interesting adventure single-player mode.

Also, as we mentioned above this year marked the announcement of the new Sonic The Hedgehog movie. It received a lot of attention just because the main character Sonic is not what people expected to be. The internet went mad after they released the initial trailer and fans were disappointed by the looks of Sonic.

After the reactions of the public, they announced that Sonic will have a new look in time for the premiere of the movie. Despite the weird design of Sonic, the movie looks quite interesting and it is set to be released in February next year.

This is truly an interesting time for any Sonic fan, there are a lot of new things to enjoy. Make sure you download the Sonic Mania game this June if you have PlayStation Plus active membership and compete with people from all around the world.
