One of the very best decisions that console makers Microsoft and Sony have made, is to offer free games to those who are members of their Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus programs each month. Hundreds of dollars worth of games for free each year. It makes the pill that is having to pay to play (online) much, much easier to swallow.
The free games being offered to PlayStation Plus members for August 2018 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below.
Hello gamers! Are you ready for Augustâ€™s PS Plus lineup?
First up, we have Mafia III. Play as Lincoln Clay, a Vietnam vet who comes back home after years of combat. When his surrogate family is wiped out by the Italian Mafia, Lincoln builds a new family and blazes a path of military-grade revenge through the Mafioso responsible.
Next we have the 4v1 horror game Dead by Daylight. One player takes on the role of the savage Killer, and the other four players play as Survivors, trying to escape the Killer and avoid being caught, tortured and killed.
This monthâ€™s PlayStation Plus lineup also includes:
Bound by Flame, PS3
Serious Sam 3 BFE, PS3
Draw Slasher, PS Vita
Space Hulk, PS Vita
Additionally, weâ€™re offering a bonus PlayStation VR game* for PS Plus members this month! From August 7 through October 2, PS Plus members can download Here They Lie free for their PS VR system. Experience the game where death is not a checkpoint. Explore a nightmarish city inhabited by strange, malevolent creatures in this first-person horror game, where unsettling encounters and environments come to life.
Now, if that wasnâ€™t enough, you can also get Knowledge is Power as part of your PS Plus membership from August 7 through November 6. Outsmart your opponents with a massive variety of trivia questions and tactical challenges. Be sure to have a compatible mobile device and companion app and youâ€™ll be all ready to play!
And there you have it. See you next time PlayStation Nation!
