PS Plus Essential August 2022 lineup has leaked nice and early courtesy of trust Dealabs user billbil-kun. According to them, August’s free games include Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 (PS4, PS5), Yakuza: Like A Dragon (PS4, PS5), and Little Nightmares (PS4). Billbil-kun has yet to be wrong even once so we’re almost positive this leak is accurate. Nevertheless, take it with a customary grain of salt. If true, August will be a pretty good month for PS Plus Essential subscribers.
When will PS Plus Essential August 2022 games go live?
The Essential tier, which is the most basic PS Plus tier, usually has its lineup scheduled for the first Tuesday of the month. This means that August’s lineup will become available to download on August 2nd.
Released in January 2020, Yakuza: Like A Dragon is the latest mainline entry in the series that released globally. The game features a new protagonist and a turn-based RPG system. Like A Dragon was praised by critics and users alike, and not only sold well but also went on to win a number of awards.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 needs no introduction. You’re getting two of the series’ most beloved games – 1999’s Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and 2000’s Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 – for the price of one but that’s not all. The games have been completely remastered, receiving a visual overhaul, gameplay improvements, and much more. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 was also praised by critics and users alike, and won numerous accolades.
Last but not least, if you’re looking for something short and sweet, Little Nightmares is a pretty good puzzle platformer.
