PlayStation Plus Games For August Announced By Sony

It’s that time of the month again! PlayStation has announced the PlayStation Plus games for August. This time round, there’s something for the sports fans, gardeners, and martial arts fighters out there.

PS Plus regularly gives out “free” games every month, all of which can be downloaded and kept for as long as you maintain an active subscription to the service. Since the launch of the PlayStation 5, which has just surpassed 10 million unit sales, Sony has been giving away two PS4 games and one PS5 game.

Last month, players were treated to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and WWE 2K Battlegrounds. The PS5 game on offer was the excellent A Plague Tale: Innocence, which has recently received an upgrade to take advantage of the PS5 hardware.

So what can players expect to receive in August?


The headline title in this month’s bundle is Hunter’s Arena: Legends. This combat-based battle royale game has been in early access on PC for the last year, but is finally making the jump to PS4 and PS5. Sony announced that this game will be coming straight to PS+ earlier this month.

Focusing on tight martial arts combat, you’ll be able to explore a gorgeous East Asian setting. A narrative synopsis reads: “In ancient Asia, once existing peace was shattered by Demons set free by unknown power.Sensing great danger, Hunters around the world gathered as one to stop the spreading chaos.”

It’s important to note that, although this title is releasing on PS4, it will only be available on PS+ for those who own a PS5.

Included for everyone in the rest of the bundle is Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. This zany spin-off of the mobile classic brings with it charm aplenty.

Take control of various different plants and zombies in a plethora of different multiplayer game modes. There’s also a PvE experience in free-roam worlds that’s perfect for co-op with friends.

Finally, there’s Tennis World Tour 2. Although a PS5 specific version of Nacon’s game was recently released, you’re only getting access to the PS4 version here. While a shame, it still stands up as one of the most modern tennis recreations on PlayStation. Give the trailer a watch to see if it’s for you.
