Mayhem, chaos and revenge are coming to PS Plus subscribers this August. That’s especially true if you own a PlayStation 4.
In fact, the offerings from Sony this summer have been pretty good (see July’s here, which are still available) and that trend continues into August.
Let’s take a look at which games you can download for free if you subscribe to Sony’s online service.
- Just Cause 3
- Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry
- Super Motherload
- Downwell (crossbuy with PS4)
- Level 22
This is actually kind of a neat month for someone like me who, incredibly, has only played the PS4 games for August. The rest are all ones I’ve missed and, in some cases, haven’t even heard of until now.
Whether or not that bodes well for these games is harder to say—after all, there’s just too many games to keep up with, even when you’re a video game critic. And honestly, it doesn’t even matter because they’re all free.
I did play both Just Cause 3 and Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry.
Just Cause 3 is an over-the-top, super-bombastic third-person open-world shooter that let’s you go pretty crazy. It’s kind of a dumb game, but that doesn’t take away from the fun of things like flying with your wingsuit and blowing stuff up. It’s far from a perfect game, but at this price it’s well worth your time.
Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry is a stand-alone expansion to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. You play as a freed slave-turned-assassin and set about freeing more slaves in the pirate-filled Caribbean while fighting Templar and sailing your ship. It’s a short game that was largely just a cool side-story to the main (excellent) Black Flag, but one I’d definitely recommend you check out.
PS Plus Movies
Sony is also offering select $0.99 movie rentals to PS Plus members. The summer movies started this week. Here’s the schedule:
- Week 1: Lego Batman
- Week 2: Logan
- Week 3: Power Rangers
- Week 4: Kong Skull Island
- Week 5: Boss Baby
- Week 6: Ghost In The Shell
Of these, I’ve seen the three that I wanted to see in theaters and the other three sound like $0.99 movies. Can you guess which ones I’m talking about?
Finally, DOOM will be available to play for free for PS Plus members between July 27 and 30, so check that out for sure if you haven’t already.
