This month's PlayStation Plus games have been revealed, hot on the heels of the leak that let the cat out of the bag - and the offerings for August 2021 are not pleasing players.
It was in fact the company itself that managed to lift the lid on the three titles on their way to PlayStation Plus subscribers next month, and sadly, the response from the community was less than ecstatic. "Unbelievable," said one gamer. "We had Final Fantasy VII Remake, Control, Shadow of War and other good stuff. And now the last 3 or 4 months it's been awful, I don't know what Sony is thinking." Indeed, the inclusion of heavy hitters like these AAA titles have ensured that players who hopped on the PS Plus train have already had access to $600 worth of games for free before the year was even halfway done. Well, there's the cost of the subscription, but we all know that doesn't count (it definitely counts).
Here is our compilation of the cream of the crop for the PlayStation 4 - without these beloved titles, the PlayStation 5 wouldn't be where it is today.
Now, the roster has been cemented and confirmed. With no more ado, PlayStation Plus subscribers will be getting Hunter's Arena: Legends, Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville and Tennis World Tour 2 on August 3rd.
From developer Mantisco, Hunter's Arena: Legends takes place in an alternate ancient Asia where demons flooded the world, giving rise to the Hunters that curtail their chaos. It's a "one of a kind" battle royale that offers players the ability to crawl dungeons for enviable loot in PvE encounters as well as nail-biting and spectacular PvP battles.
Of course, Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville needs no introduction as the third entry to the toony shooter. However, it expanded upon the formula of a Plants vs. Zombies game with new co-op classes, free-roam zones and chill social hubs where players could either duke it out with the enemies or while away the time with mini-games. If you share your PlayStation with whippersnappers, then this might be a game that brings you together in its moreish gameplay and awesome designs.
Lastly, Wimbledon might be done and dusted, but if you feel short-changed because you didn't tuck into a bowl of strawberries and cream in the summer sun, then the third game is the one for you. Now, Tennis World Tour is widely recognised as the worst tennis sports sim ever made. However, this is Tennis World Tour 2. It took the feedback from the first title and focused on authentic renders, a satisfying learning curve and an interesting campaign. You'll be a regular Neal Skupski and/or Desirae Krawczyk in no time.
This also serves as a reminder that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, WWE 2K Battlegrounds, A Plague Tale: Innocence and Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown will disappear on August 2nd. So shift it if you're yet to claim these games - players have been raving about A Plague Tale: Innocence and it's getting a sequel in 2022.
