Sony has announced that it will make Call of Duty:WWII free for PlayStation Plus owners this June. Sony normally refreshes its free PS Plus games on the first Tuesday of the month, but the celebrated game is already available to download from today, May 26 — a week earlier than expected.

Call of Duty: WWII is a first-person shooter video game developed by Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision. It was released globally on November 3, 2017 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Watch the trailer below.

Due to surging demand amid the global Coronavirus outbreak, internet gaming is seeing record levels of engagement. Both Xbox and Playstation have taken steps to optimize their online services as gamers isolate during the pandemic.

Unfortunately, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone! players experienced massive disruptions and connectivity issues last week after Activision and developers Infinity Ward released a new patch for their wildly popular series. See the best and most frustrated reactions here.
