Sony confirms PS Plus games for August

Sony confirms PS Plus games for August
Josh Wise Updated on by

Update: Sony has now confirmed that August’s PS Plus games include Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 and Yakuza Like A Dragon. And also Little Nightmares.

Original Story:

PS Plus subscribers may be getting Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 & Yakuza Like A Dragon as their free games next month.

That’s according to regular leaker billbil-kun’s latest post on the Dealabs website. As spotted by Video Games Chronicle, both games will include their PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 versions. They’ll also be joined by Little Nightmares to make up the Essentials picks for this month. All three games will of course also be available to those on the Extra and Premium tiers too.

If true, it marks an exceptionally good month for subscribers to the service. If you’ve somehow avoided them so far, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 is a fantastic 2020 remake of the first two games of the classic skateboarding series. You can read our review just over here. Criminally, we later found out a planned 3+4 follow-up was canned after Activision merged developer Vicarious Visions into Blizzard.

Yakuza Like A Dragon meanwhile is the seventh mainline game in the action adventure series. It changed things up significantly, swapping the brawling for a semi-turn based RPG system. However, it still managed to retain all the things we loved about the series. And yes, we’re quite excited to hear more about the follow up, which we saw the first screens of just last week.

Billbil-kun’s got an almost flawless track record with their PS Plus claims so far. So we’re inclined to believe they’ll be accurate with their Tony Hawk‘s PS Plus prediction too. Last month, they correctly informed us that July’s offerings would include Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time.
