August PlayStation Plus Free Games Revealed

This morning, Sony announced the newest games PlayStation Plus subscribers will get to download for free the month of August.

In total, six free games across the PlayStation family of consoles will be available, headlined by Mafia III. Developed by Hangar 13 and published by 2K Games, Mafia III is an open-world game that follows a Vietnam vet who comes home to New Orleans inspired New Bourdeaux years after combat. You’ll play as Lincoln Clay, who is on a revenge mission when his family is killed by the Italian Mafia. Check out our thoughts here.

PlayStation 4 players will also get the 4v1 horror game Dead by Daylight. Four survivors try to escape a serial killer in this tense multiplayer game. The survivors play in a third-person perspective, while the killer plays in first-person.

PlayStation 3 owners can download Bound by Flame, a fantasy-themed action RPG, and Serious Sam 3 BFE, a throwback to old-school first-person shooters, and Vita owners can grab Draw Slasher and Space Hulk, a turn-based strategy game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

In addition, Sony has announced that two bonus games will be available. From August 7 through October 2, PlayStation VR owners can download horror title Here They Lie. From August 7 to November 6, Knowledge is Power is also available. Outsmart your friends with trivia knowledge with this Play Link title.

As always, these titles are only free if you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription. Members can “purchase” these titles at any time during the month and have access to them at any time during their membership.
