PS Plus August 2022 free games, predictions, rumours

Are you hunting for the latest on the PS Plus August 2022 free games? Here is what we know and anything that has leaked online ahead of time

PS Plus August 2022 Free Games: Tony Hawk can be seen in key art for the 1+2 remake

PS Plus’ August 2022 free games will once again bring at least three games for Essential subscribers and a whole additional library of additions for those who are subscribed to Extra or Premium. So, as we have seen in the past, you can expect a pretty stacked month for all subscribers, even if the PS Plus Extra and Premium games list is already pretty enticing.

As we saw in July, Sony will bring two games to PS Plus Essential and also offer one of its Extra or Premium games to Essential subscribers for the month. This means everyone will get three games, despite Sony previously saying they would be cut to two.

This article will cover what we know about the PS Plus August 2022 free games, so you can find your favourite and plan which one you will play first!

PS PLus August 2022 Free Games

The PS Plus August 2022 free games have been announced and are as follows:

  • Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 – PS5, PS4
  • Yakuza: Like A Dragon – PS5, PS4
  • Little Nightmares – PS4

All three games will be available from August 2, 2022, for essential subscribers and up! This lineup was actually leaked ahead of time online.

PS Plus August 2022 Predictions

You can find our three PS Plus August 2022 free games predictions for the Essential tier below:

  • Hot Wheels Unleashed – PS5, PS4
  • Paper Beast – PS4
  • Observer System Redux – PS5, PS4

PS Plus August 2022 Free Games: A mini car can be seen racing on a track, which curves behind it.

Hot Wheels Unleashed – Essential (PS5, PS4)

Hot Wheels Unleashed is a great racing game that flew under the radar last year and we think a PS Plus launch could really give it the boost it needs!

With tons of different miniature cars and unique and crazy tracks, the game is packed with racing fun and has a suite of modes for everyone, from competitive online to a career mode.

Paper Beast – Essential (PS4)

Paper Beast is a much more serene and calming adventure than our other two games in our predictions so far.

You wander a gorgeous, unique planet and explore, solving puzzles and using the mysterious paper creatures that roam the land to help you on your journey.

PS Plus August 2022 Free Games: An old computer system can be seen in a dank coridoor.

Observer System Redux – Essential (PS5, PS4)

Finally, Observer System Redux brings your adrenaline levels right back up with its scares and spooky future cityscape.

Remastered for both PS5 and PS4, the game comes with a suite of visual upgrades and enhancements and on PS5 brings DualSense support and full 3D audio. This is also the game on our predictions that is currently available for Extra and Premium subscribers and we think will be handed out to Essential subscribers as well!

So, that covers our predictions and the PS Plus August 2022 free games. For more on PS5 games to play, check out some of the best PS5 games available on Sony’s latest console.
