As you’d expect, PlayStation has announced the new games that will be available in August for the higher PS Plus subscriptions, Extra and Premium.
The free games for August are already available to basic PS Plus subscribers and can be added to digital libraries, while the following games will be added to the massive Extra/Premium collection from 16 August. Unlike the basic Plus free games, these games can be removed from the service anytime.
As previously announced, three Yakuza games – Zero, Kiwami and Kiwami 2 (i.e., the first three) – will be added to the library.
In the hugely popular series, you’ll try your hand at navigating Japan’s criminal underworld while meeting all sorts of crazy characters and participating in exciting missions.
If you missed out on getting them for free on basic PS Plus in previous years, now’s your chance to grab Bugsnax and Dead by Daylight at no extra cost.
The former is an adorable photo game with a surprisingly diverse cast of cute characters and imaginative food/insect creatures but with dark twists, while the latter is one of Twitch’s most streamed games for its tense team-based gameplay, incredible moments and array of recognisable favourites.
There’s also Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, classic RPG remake Trials of Mana, survival horror Metro Exodus, as well as party games Wheel of Fortune, Monopoly Plus, Monopoly Madness and UNO.
The latter, in particular, uses the PlayLink app, so four players can keep all their cards hidden and play a devastating Wild Draw Four when no one suspects.
The bad news is that, unfortunately, this month, there look to be no new games added to the library of emulated classic PS1, PSP or PS2 titles for Premium tier subscribers, despite this being one of the most expensive tier’s heavily advertised selling points.
