The past months have been excellent one for PS Plus subscribers. PS4 games they’ve had this month and apparently next, are outstanding. It seems Sony is stepping up their game in the PS Plus department, and it is showing in a bigger way with the PS4 games coming to gamers next month.
This month saw gamers are receiving Until Dawn and Game of Thrones for free on PS4. I thought this was easily the best lineup we’ve seen this generation, but then August’s lineup was just announced yesterday. Sony is confirming gamers will receive Just Cause 3 and Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry free on PS4.
While some of this depends on your genre/franchise bias, I think Sony has outdone themselves with August’s lineup of PS4 games. Particularly with Just Cause 3, this game alone surpasses July’s PS4 games from a playthrough length perspective. One could argue that Just Cause 3 also surpasses those in the entertainment department.
Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry is also a nice get for players. The Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag DLC provided them with the chance to play as Adéwalé, Edward Kenway’s partner in crime during the main campaign. Freedom Cry is a wonderful step away from Edward’s story and provides a new shift on combat with Adéwalé’s dual melee weapons.
This DLC provides a number of additional hours of gameplay and fun for players. When you take that and add it up with the offerings of Just Cause 3, it is clear how great of a value is present within August’s free PS4 games.
To make things even more obvious, PS Plus’s PS4 games certainly surpass those of Xbox One’s for August. Slime Rancher and Trials Fusion are the two freebies for Xbox One next month. You could say Xbox One’s games are a Freedom Cry away from PS4’s. Right? Am I right?
Foolishness aside, I believe August’s free PS4 games on PS Plus have surpassed those seen in July. Sony’s Until Dawn and Telltale’s Game of Thrones are excellent experiences you should absolutely add to your library if you haven’t already. However, August’s PS Plus lineup is looking even stronger.
