PlayStation Plus Free Games August Announced

PlayStation Plus Free Games August Announced

Can you believe July is almost over? If you just checked your calendar, I’m sorry but it’s true. August is almost here and with it comes fresh and free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers.

Fortunately this month’s selection doesn’t leave out PS4 players, as all three games are available on the much-loved ageing console.

Starting August 2nd, your PlayStation Plus subscription entitles you to three very different games. From skateboarding like a punk, to beating up punks, and exploring a terrifying ship made for giants - you’re going to find something to love here.

PlayStation Plus Free Games August:

Yakuza: Like a Dragon (PS4 + PS5)

Spinning off from the typical Yakuza fare, Like a Dragon takes the different form of an action RPG. A twisting story and grand conspiracy haunts protagonist Ichiban Kasuga as he works his way up the chain of command in the Yakuza. Build your own squad of misfits and help gain reputation for them and yourself. From lowly grunts to a formidable force, Like a Dragon takes you on a modern RPG adventure through the shady underworld of beautiful Tokyo.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 Deluxe Bundle (PS4 + PS5)

If you’re anything like me, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater influenced you a lot during your childhood. I wanted to be a skater so bad, but I was never able to pull off the incredible moves that these pros could, I just ended up with a broken wrist and a bruised ego. The songs featured in these games are still ones I listen to today. Fortunately, I can now relive those days as if the games were new again. This collection remakes both influential games and now it’s free for PlayStation Plus subscribers. Radical!

Little Nightmares (PS4)

The Little Nightmare games are unique and fantastic horror experiences. Looking at first like a cute puzzler, soon the true realities of The Maw become clear. Huge beasts want nothing more than to feast on your little face, and there’s very little you can do but run, hide and get out of their way as fast as possible. The original Little Nightmares has some of the most bone-chilling enemy design I’ve seen in a modern game. The Groundskeeper with his long, mutated arms haunts me to this day. If you’ve not given Little Nightmares a shot yet, I highly recommend it. Whether you’re a horror or puzzler fan, there’s a lot to love in this charming, heart-stopping game.

Don’t forget to download PlayStation Plus’ free games from July:

You still have time to add last month’s titles to your PlayStation library. If you want to play the crazy Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, Supermassive’s Seafaring horror Man of Medan or the fresh PVE/PVP shooter Arcadegeddon, you’re running out of time.

You have until August 1st to snag those games, so don’t miss out! 

Head over to the PlayStation Store to claim them now.
