The PSMore The game’s reveal and announcement formula has been shaken up with the introduction of Extra and Premium tiers, but everything remains the same for PS Plus Essential users. This means that Sony will announce the list of new games later today and release them on the first Tuesday of August (August 2).
Of course, when everything stays the same, that goes for leaks too. For several months now, a Dealabs user known as Billbil-kun has been leaking every PS Plus Essential title with a high degree of accuracy. Until Sony confirms the latest leaked lineup, fans should take it with a grain of salt, but it’s from a reliable source.
According to Billbil-Kun, PS Plus free games for August 2022 include Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater (PS5/PS4), Yakuza: like a dragon (PS5/PS4), and little nightmares (PS4). To access these games, fans will only need a PS Plus Essential subscription, but those on higher tiers will also have access. All in all, it’s a pretty solid line-up, maybe one of the best in recent months.
