Game news PlayStation Plus: The “free” PS5 and PS4 games from August 2022
The month of July is coming to an end… So this is the perfect opportunity for Sony to finally reveal the games that will be offered in August to players with a PlayStation Plus subscription. So were the various rumors true?
From Tuesday, August 25 p.m., players with a PS+ Premium subscription, a PS+ Extra subscription, or even a PS+ Essential subscription will be able to add three extra big games to their collection. And if the predictions of the Spanish journalist Christian Henares are wrong, Dealabs is right again. No NieR Automata or Mass Effect: Legendary Edition on the horizon, but Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2, Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Little Nightmares. In other words, we’re entitled to a program as excellent as it is eclectic this month.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 (PS4/PS5)
We start the August PS+ program on “roller hats” with the arrival of professional skateboarder Tony Hawk, who here has equipped himself with his most beautiful board. Remake of the first two opus of the saga, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 embellishes the license’s past with brand new graphics and completely revised and corrected gameplay, which is directly inspired by the controls of the fourth chapter of Tony’s video game adventure, but also by Underground. The icing on the cake, the app takes the opportunity to gather all the legends who have created the aura of the saga, starting with Steve Caballero, Kareem Campbell and Rodney Mullen. There are also some welcome new faces such as Nyjah Huston, Leo Baker and Leticia Bufoni.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon (PS4/PS5)
We continue as a combi with Yakuza: Like a dragon ! After looking up the side of beat’em for almost 15 years, the indispensable saga of Ryu ga Gotoku Studio radically changes its formula on the occasion of the arrival of next-generation consoles. No more real-time battles, Yakuza: Like a Dragon has chosen to emphasize the RPG dimension of the series by now offering turn-based tactical combat. A bold bet, but one that paid off as the public quickly embraced this news. For our part, we were also seduced by this proposal: we chose a nice 16 out of 20.
Little Nightmares (PS4/PS5)
We conclude the program for PS+ Essential for the month of August with the arrival of Little nightmares which hides a particularly frightening game beneath its childlike appearance. In this video game nightmare, the player embodies Six, a teenager draped in a beautiful yellow raincoat, who must face a hideous, monstrous and constantly hostile beast. Between puzzles and hunts by the title Tarsier, how to vary the pleasures, and this, while offering breathtaking panoramas. It must be said that the whole is helped by an artistic direction to fall, which without hiding it takes the leg of the genius Tim Burton.

About the new PlayStation Plus:
What is PlayStation Plus?
PlayStation Plus is the subscription formula for PS4 and PS5. Through various offers, you can enjoy hundreds of PlayStation titles, a list of retro games ranging from PS1 to PS3 and even streaming playback, depending on your subscription level.
What are the 3 PS Plus offers?
PlayStation Plus consists of three levels: Essential (€8.99/month), Extra (€13.99/month) and Premium (€16.99/month). The first one offers the same benefits as the old PS Plus (online games, save in the cloud, games included every month, exclusive discounts via the PlayStation Store). The other also benefits from a catalog of around 400 PS4 titles | PS5. And the third adds on top of retro software (PSP, PS1, PS2, PSP), remote reading of a selection of games thanks to streaming and – this is important – demos to test a handful of blockbusters.
