PlayStation's own website has leaked what PS Plus games will be available for subscribers in August.
Ugh, hope this rumor turns out to be wrong.
This isn't a rumor at this point. It was leaked on the actual PlayStation website not some random site. This is the lineup.
- Tennis World Tour 2: Niche, sub 60 metacritic. - Hunter’s Arena: Legends: Around 60% approval on Steam, which is very bad. Also microtransaction focused. - Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville: Cash grab, microtransaction focused. Worst month in a long time. I can't wait to see how even worse they will make it next month.
You do realise 80% of gamepass games are just like this months ps plus games right yet thats OK cause you can try games you wouldn't normally buy right? BTW thats the same for psnow too 80% filler 20% good games just like gamepass
Kena comes out this month Who gives a shit about ps plus games If you want a new game then take advantage of the summer sale currently going on
@EvertonFC and here is the first fanboy BS response. Only person in here making this a console war is yourself.
"- Hunter’s Arena: Legends: Around 60% approval on Steam, which is very bad. " I'm just after going through some of those reviews, a large percentage of the negative reviews I saw focus on not being able to find a match because of no playerbase rather than problems with the game itself. Coming to PS+ will be a big help in that regard and, as such, the Steam reviews aren't really useful in this situation outside of trying to dunk on the lineup.
@EvertonFC - you obviously know little about the games on Game Pass. https://imgur.com/a/DGPuT1F
Why do you assume that next month will be worst, and why cant you wait for it to be worst? I mean theyve had great PSPlus months, and one bad month. It doesnt make sense. If you look back you see that this month is more in line with what the competition has been offering.
Wow... Trash../ ok I don't want to say trash but huge let down...
I'll try the tennis as I like tennis but don't normally buy them cause there crap but I'll give it a wirl for some easy trophies same with plants vs zombies ping a few east trophies b4 uninstalling.
I feel like Sony started out the year strong with ps plus, but with each consecutive month it's been dropping off.. and if this is true, it's by far the worst line up of the year so far. Yuck.
To be fare, there isn't many great games left that Sony didn't give out already. The only games left I guess are the new ones such demon souls returnal and R&C. And am sure it will be there in the upcoming months/year.
I would say that it's not a bad idea to do repeats of great games sometimes. Not everyone has maintained their Plus membership in perpetuity.
You don't expect Sony to put good games in August, do you?
Dropping off? This is certainly a dropoff, if true, but I think the other months have been pretty good lately. Certainly if you compare it to the competition, which this one seems to be more in line with, again, if true.
Or.... Sony is saving something good for the holiday months.
Still enjoying the hell out of Wreckfest and Operation Tango is a blast to pay with a friend.
Really we've gotten huge games consecutively each month from control, squadrons, cod black ops 4, bfv, days gone, ff7 remake, shadow if the tomb raider, greedfall, plauge tail etc This has been a solid year so far a underwhelming month doesn't change that. Go back to 2013/2014 the PS3 PS4 and vita were the main consoles and os plus was unknown Indies every month and once every sixonths we might get a AA game
The competition has given out trash all year, so unfortunately Sony is following suit and dropping the quality of the freebies.
Ehhh not every month can be a winner. I’m still working through the past ps plus games.
That's a positive way to look at it at least
I wish I could be as positive but eh?!
Indeed, PS+ games I've been playing recently: Bulletstorn: Full Clip Edition (just beat it, and it's awesome) Knack 1 (playing the game on Hard is much more difficult than I expected, but it's been pretty good, a nice change of pace with the glut of shooter games flooding the market) Control (only tried out the beginning so far, but I think I'll end up enjoying it) Super Time Force Ultra (a funny game with a unique take on traditional 2D run-and-gun shooters) And there's tons more good stuff I haven't played yet like Puppeteer on PS3. There's just not enough time to play them all.
Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville (PS4) Tennis World Tour 2 (PS4) Hunter’s Arena: Legends (PS5 only)
Not quite up to par with their recent offerings, hopefully this is fake.
That looks terrible, this seriously can't be the games we're getting.
I loved Garden Warfare but didn't pick up the sequels. I'd definitely like Plamts Vs Zombies to be true. Should scratch my multiplayer itch until Battlefield releases and the influx of new players would make jumping on board now easier
PVZ is not too bad for a family style shooter. It definitely took a step back from the older games where you could get fire/elec/etc… style characters via unlocks. This one sells outfits and you can purchase upgrades in the stores. PvP is a pay to win unless you grind out upgrades on the class you are playing. Tough going up against the maxed out builds, not impossible but you can see the pay to win in it.
I much prefer the turn based PvZ game. Wish there was a sequel to that instead.
I'd rather they keep the free games and drop the multiplayer paywall, same thing for Xbox.
Sony are making billions a year on ps plus, last year including psnow they made 3.61bil Vs only 1.3bil on physical software sales, digital yearly sales make about 5.1bil. Basically you have no chance Microsoft may do it if rumours are to be believed but psplus would be a hard sell with just 3 games a month.
You're right but I still don't like shelling out money for what should be a free service.
True online play should be free as it's the publisher/Devs providing the servers the minority of the time
Hunger‘a Arena looks fun.
Geez Plants Vs. Zombies is the lamest most mainstream causal crap out there from a few years ago. Let it die please Tennis? Who actually plays tennis games in 2021? Whatever I won’t play it, but at least there is a variety for sports games players (which I am NOT barf) A month of Indie crap and Sports. No need to add these to the library.
This is surely someone screwing with us.
PlayStation has been killing it with the PS+ offerings all year, so I'm fine with them scaling back a bit for a month. Hopefully they pick things up again in September.
This isn't just a bit tho. I guess I'll try hunter's arena but the steam players already dislike it so we'll see...
Been rubbish 4 months in a row!
They should have spread out the quality games out. They started the year with really good offerings.
Not a very good month if true but I might check out Hunters Arena as it does have PVE also . Generally speaking PS+ has good offerings but this month isn’t good if this is what they are offering . I’ll add them to library and maybe try tennis someday who knows when . I liked the original Plants vs Zombies but they have been milking it ever since .
I hope not.
Isn't Hunter's Arena Legends F2P battle royale on PC? Why add a free game as a PS Plus game?
They did some strong months recently
cant always be homeruns
Shitty games for the 3rd time in a row. smh. Just lower the PSPlus subscription to $10 for the online function and spare us those godawful games.
[email protected] the dislikes. The games suck donkey balls. Deal with it! And what's wrong with asking to lower the price of the subscription? smh. Oh and PSPlus are not as good as it used to be.
August Fools plz
the Hunter's game looks cool. I thought it was gonna be F2P anyways but I guess not? definitely gonna check it out. not sure about launch cuz I'm invested into some other games right now =)
If those are the games it's a weak month no doubt. Doesn't negate the exceptional games we've had lately and will have again but those games are a swing and a miss.
i hate having to have a subscription to playstation to begin with, and this makes me hate it even more
Has to be one of the worst in history of PS+
Not up my alley this month but that's ok they can't all be winners
The tide has turned. Gamepass is going to get game of the year Flight Simulator. PS Plus is going to get Tennis.
Oh, so now it’s ok to complain about PS+ games? Last time I complained people told me to go f*ck myself.
August usually is a big month for game sales. Devs probably prefer to put their games on sale rather than offer it on Plus this month.
