The Playstation Plus free games for August are a bit of a switch up from the previous months’, which focused on ‘choose your own adventure’ style games, and are all about big, open worlds.
- Just Cause 3 (PS4)
- The Just Cause series is really the epitome of what sandbox games should be. You play as Rico Rodriguez and work to liberate your home of military control. Or don’t. The story of Just Cause games is really an afterthought because the main game is just messing around in the world, causing all sorts of chaos and destruction. There aren’t any other games that let you simulate big, dumb action movie moments like this. Do you wanna ride in a car that’s being hung from a plane before plummeting to the ground and destroying a military base? Yes? Just Cause 3 is for you.
- Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry (PS4)
- Freedom Cry is a standalone expansion for Black Flag that features a new protagonist and takes place after the events of the base game. I haven’t personally played Freedom Cry and I’ve been done with Assassin’s Creed since Brotherhood so I’ll keep this short. If you liked Black Flag and want a few hours of new content in that world, play this game.
- Super Motherload (PS3)
- Snakeball (PS3)
- Downwell (PS4, PS Vita)
- Level 22 (PS Vita)
Another really strong month of PS Plus games. These last few months have easily been the best ones for the PS4 since its release.
