I haven't written about an individual month’s PS Plus lineup in awhile, but the games for August is going to change that! Welcome to
For those that haven't seen the news yet, here is the PS Plus lineup for next month:
Just Cause 3 - PS4
Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry - PS4
Super Motherload - PS3
Snakeball - PS3
Downwell - PS Vita
Level 22 - PS Vita
Wow, what a month. Just Cause 3 alone makes August far more exciting than anything PS Plus has offered in a long, long time. These are exactly the kind of games that Sony needs to be getting for their service. And while I have heard that there are performance issues with Just Cause, I don't particularly mind. This is what PS Plus should be for, playing games that one didn't play for one reason or another. I’m sure many didn't grab the game because of those issues, but now they can play it without having to pay for it separately.
As for the other PS4 game, Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry, I can’t say that I am as excited. It is a fairly old game, having released over 3 years ago, and it isn't really a full game either, as it was released as standalone DLC. Having said that, it is still a lot better than most of what we get with PS Plus.
Unfortunately, there isn't much to be excited about after the PS4 games. Both
But honestly, I don’t really care that much about the PS3 and PS Vita games. In a thought last week, I talked about how PS Plus needs to change, and how the focus needs to be on PS4. For this week at least, Sony has done that. We can only hope that this is the start of a new trend, where we see great and exciting games a lot more often than we are used to.
Now it is your turn to let me know what you think of next month’s PS Plus lineup! Be sure to vote in the survey, the results of which will be shared early next week, and don’t forget to leave a comment below!
