Sony has revised the four-year-old PlayStation Plus monthly subscription so that players can now download two free games each month for the PlayStation 4, PS3, and PS Vita.

John Koller, the vice president of platforms marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America, said in a post today that “PlayStation Plus has been an essential part of PlayStation 4, providing access to next-gen online multiplayer and a steady stream of great games including Resogun, Outlast, Don’t Starve, and Mercenary Kings. Since we are always looking to continue evolving PS Plus to be a service that really serves our community, we are excited to provide a more balanced set of games introduced each month with PS Plus.”

He said that starting in July, players will be able to download every title in the Instant Game Collection on the first Tuesday of the month. That game will be free for the month until the first Tuesday of the following month.

“In the coming weeks, you’ll see that several of the titles that have had a nice, long stint in the Instant Game Collection will be phased out, so if you’re new to the service and haven’t had a chance to download all of the titles available through PS Plus — or if you’ve been thinking about subscribing but haven’t yet — now is the perfect time to get all the great games available with PS Plus,” Koller said.

For June, Sony announced new PlayStation Plus titles such as Trine 2: Complete Story, a puzzle platform game, for the PS4. Others include PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate (PS4), NBA 2K14 (PS3), Terraria (Vita), and Mutant Mudds Deluxe (Vita).

So do you get to keep the game past a month or do you have to pay once the month is up to keep playing?
