According to Sony, the PlayStation Plus games for August 2022 will be Little Nightmares, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2, and Yakuza: Like a Dragon. All 3 videogames will be made freely available to all PlayStation Plus subscribers on August 2, according to the PlayStation Blog.
Another crazy, action-packed Yakuza film, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, follows protagonist Ichiban Kasuga as he seeks to ascend through the ranks of his criminal organization from zero to hero. Turn-based fighting was firstly used in Like a Dragon, ushering in a new era for the series; this mechanic will be carried over in the recently confirmed follow-up Yakuza 8.
“Yakuza: Like a Dragon takes some big moves in a new direction for the franchise but neglects to retain its balance,” IGN noted in our 7/10 review.
The original—and maybe the best—Tony Hawk skateboarding games have been restored, and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2 delivers all the exhilarating sports action that fans have come to expect from a remake.
As the man himself just announced that the remasters of 3 and 4 had been canceled, it’s also the final Tony Hawk game fans can anticipate for a while. Thankfully, Pro Skater 1 & 2 made a solid first impression, as IGN stated in our 9/10 review: “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 proved that stepping backward has been the right step ahead for the series in 15 years.”
Screens Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2
The most well-known skateboarding video games ever created are returning. Play Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 in a single, spectacular collection that has been completely rebuilt in stunning HD. All of the professional skaters, levels, and stunts have been completely redone, plus more.
Skate to both fresh songs from the soundtrack that defined an era, pull off amazing trick combinations, or shred all of the game types by competing against a friend in local 2-player scenarios! Take your practice sessions online to compete against people from around the world in multiplayer modes and real-time leaderboards, and hone your skills.
Skaters like Tony Hawk, Kareem Campbell, Bucky Lasek, and others from the original roster are still available, but you can also join the new roster of Olympian skaters (Nyjah Huston, Aori Nishimura, Leticia Bufoni, and more.)
Little Nightmares is a third-person
Little Nightmares is a third-person adventure game with stealth and exploration aspects that is set in a frightening (surprise, surprise) setting. As she travels home after being stolen, Six, a little girl, is played by players.
“Gleefully odd, constantly grim, and quietly witty, Little Nightmares is a very welcome novel take on horror,” IGN stated in its 8/10 review.
The previous month’s games, such as Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan, and Arcadegeddon, will be accessible until August 1 while these three new titles will be free until September 6.
The redesigned PlayStation Plus tiers have now been officially released globally by Sony, but as this selection of free games shows, the lowest-cost Essential tier is essentially unchanged from the previous PlayStation Plus.
