Sony unveils the PS Plus Extra and Premium offerings for August 2023, with a total of 17 games across the two catalogues. Including two day-one releases!
Sony has officially announced the comprehensive list of PS Plus Extra and Premium titles that will join the service on and after 15 August. This list includes two day-one titles. These are Sea of Stars, which will launch with a release date of 29 August, and Moving Out 2, which joins the others on 15 August.
A quick glance at this PS Plus list shows just how varied this month’s selection is. There are some kid-friendly games in there, like PJ Masks and Hotel Transylvania. Or some more intense titles like Destiny 2: The Witch Queen. As well as a representation of a wide range of genres.
Given that some of you were probably disappointed with the PS Plus free games for August 2023, which include Death’s Door, Dreams and PGA Tour 2K23, this line-up looks pretty good to fill the month.
Most of the games will arrive for PS Plus Extras on 15 August. Sea of Stars is an exception to the ‘all in one day’ rule, but fans can be sure to get it on the proper release date. Rounding out the additions are PS Plus Premium titles MediEvil: Resurrection, Ape Escape: On the Loose and Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice.
PS Plus Extra and Premium list (August 2023):
- Sea of Stars
- Moving Out 2
- Destiny 2: The Witch Queen
- Lost Judgment
- Destroy All Humans 2 Reprobed
- Two Point Hospital: Jumbo Edition
- Source of Madness
- Cursed to Golf
- PJ Masks: Heroes of the Night
- Hotel Transylvania: Scary Tale Adventures
- Lawn Mowing Simulator
- Spellforce 3 Reforced
- Midnight Fight Express
- MediEvil: Resurrection (Premium)
- Ape Escape: On the Loose (Premium)
- Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice (Premium)
Sea of Stars and Moving Out 2 are the exciting additions to the first day of PlayStation Plus. Sea of Stars is a retro tactical RPG that joins a long list of TRPGs just this year. Meanwhile, Moving Out 2 is a fun and frenetic cooperative moving game. It is said to develop elements of the original game.
Although PlayStation Plus doesn’t offer day-one games as often as Xbox Game Pass, it’s hard to argue with the selection.
PS Plus Essential, Extra and Premium catalogues will give fans a total of 20 games this month. Chances are there’s something here they’ll like, but if not, fans can expect the same number of games in September to keep proving how excellent the service is.
