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 2019 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below.
Blast your way onto the podium in a lightning-fast futuristic race craft or work to unseat Axis powers as a covert marksman in World War II Italy â€” two exciting PS4 titles join PS Plus in August.
Letâ€™s take a closer look:
WipEout Omega Collection
Combining WipEout 2048, WipEout HD and the HD Fury expansion into one turbo-charged package, Wipeout Omega Collection brings the breakneck speed and combat thrills of the anti-gravity racing franchise to PS4.
Race against the clock and other competitors to take home a podium win, unlocking dozens of ships as you progress through 26 tracks. Competition gets fiercer online*, with eight players duking it out in high-speed circuits. Alternatively, you can go one-on-one with a friend on the couch.
Those looking for the ultimate thrill can also experience the entire game, including all modes and tracks, in PlayStation VR.
Sniper Elite 4
Slip behind enemy lines and work to drive out Axis forces from the Italian peninsula. Scout huge, varied environments as a covert operative and take out enemies before setting up the perfect hit on high-value targets.
Use a mixture of traps and explosives, hazardous environments, melee takedowns and, of course, your trusty rifle to sow chaos in enemy strongholds. For even greater strategy, team up with a friend online* to take down targets in the co-operative campaign mode or enjoy dedicated co-op missions for two to four players and competitive multiplayer modes for up to 12 players.
Both WipEout Omega Collection and Sniper Elite 4 will be available to download at PlayStation Store from August 6 until September 2.
