According to a recent leak, the AAA title from one of the biggest third-party publishers will be coming to PS Plus Extras in August 2022.
Apparently, the PS Plus Extra and Premium tier offerings will be revealed in the middle of the month, although Essential tier titles have been available since the beginning of the month. In July, Sony added Stray, Marvel’s Avengers, Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade and various Assassin’s Creed titles to the library of games available to Extra tier members. Now a recent leak has revealed that a AAA title is coming to PS Plus Extra this month, with cooperative play at its heart.
According to Dealabs, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands will come to PS Plus Extra in August 2022.
Wildlands will be part of Ubisoft+ Classics, a new subscription service of older Ubisoft games that will be part of PS Plus Extra. It should be noted that Premium members will have access to all the Extra tier’s benefits, so they can also play Ghost Recon Wildlands for free when it joins PS Plus.
While any leaks should be treated with caution, Dealabs has proven to be a reliable source with an impressive track record. It usually leaks PS Plus releases monthly, at least a day or two before the official announcement. This leak came as the writer detailed the free games for August in the comments section of the article.
Ghost Recon Wildlands received mixed reviews upon its release in 2017.
Ubisoft released a sequel in 2019 called Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which received even worse reviews from critics. Given that Wildlands is more than five years old, it’s no surprise that it was added to Ubisoft+ Classics this month. Ubisoft launched the service with 27 titles and promised to increase that number to over 50 by the end of the year. So, like the addition of seven Assassin’s Creed games last month, Ghost Recon Wildlands could be one of several games Ubisoft plans to release on PS Plus this month.
Ghost Recon Wildlands, meanwhile, was added to Xbox Game Pass earlier this month, and members can play the game for free on consoles, PC and the cloud. Wildlands appears to be the featured AAA game in the August Xbox Game Pass line-up, but subscribers can also play titles such as Two Point Campus, Expeditions: Rome and Turbo Golf Racing this month.
