While PlayStation Plus may now look quite different worldwide, regardless of what membership option you have taken, you will still get a monthly collection of free games to add to your collection. Ahead of the new trio of games going live on 2 August 2022, Sony Interactive Entertainment has confirmed what those three games are, along with the reminder that you have until 1 August 2022 to nab yourself July 2022’s free games (Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, Man of Medan and Arcadegeddon).
In the month of August 2022, Essential, Extra and Premium tier subscribers of the PlayStation Plus service will be able to add the following games to their library:
Yakuza: Like a Dragon (PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5)
Level up from underdog to dragon in this action RPG. Ichiban Kasuga, a low-ranking grunt of a low-ranking yakuza family in Tokyo, returns to society after serving 18 years for a crime he didn’t commit. Uncover the truth behind his family’s betrayal while exploring – and fighting – your way across a modern-day Japanese city. Build a party from a ragtag group of society’s outcasts, spending time with them to unlock new abilities and combo skills. Take time off from your quest to immerse yourself in go-karting, arcade games or 50 substories.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 Cross-Gen Deluxe Bundle (PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5)
Drop back in with the most iconic skateboarding games ever made. Play Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater & Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 in one epic collection, rebuilt from the ground up in incredible HD. All the pro skaters, levels, and tricks are back and fully remastered, plus more. Skate to songs from the era-defining soundtrack along with new music, hit insane trick combos, or shred all the original game modes by going head-to-head with local 2-player modes! Strengthen your skills by taking your sessions online and competing against players from around the world in multiplayer modes and live leaderboards. Play as skaters from the original roster (Tony Hawk, Kareem Campbell, Bucky Lasek, and more) or slide into the new roster made up of Olympian skaters (Nyjah Huston, Aori Nishimura, Leticia Bufoni, and more.)
Little Nightmares (PlayStation 4)
Immerse yourself in Little Nightmares, a dark whimsical tale that will confront you with your childhood fears! Help Six escape The Maw – a vast, mysterious vessel inhabited by corrupted souls looking for their next meal. As you progress on your journey, explore the most disturbing dollhouse offering a prison to escape from and a playground full of secrets to discover. Reconnect with your inner child to unleash your imagination and find the way out!
Sony Interactive Entertainment has also confirmed that on-top of Yakuza: Like a Dragon joining the PlayStation Plus Monthly Games Collection, Extra and Premium subscribers will also be able to experience Kazuma Kiryu’s epic journey through the criminal underworld with Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza Kiwami 2 when the titles launch as part of the August Game Catalog lineup. What about Kazuma Kiryu’s other adventures? Yakuza 3 Remastered, Yakuza 4 Remastered, Yakuza 5 Remastered and Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will all be joining the library later this year.
