UDPATE: The August PlayStation Plus games have been revealed and they are… WipEout Omega Collection and Sniper Elite 4!
“Given the limitations of PSVR and VR in general, Wipeout almost has no right to work as well as it does, and yet it exceeded all my expectations,” said Tef. “Not only does it just show just how flexible VR – as if games like Skyrim VR, Doom VFR and Farpoint hadn’t already done that – it’s almost effortlessly one of the best VR experiences going, taking a game that many people will know inside and out and giving you a truly new perspective. This is the kind of game and experience that people think of when dreaming of what VR could mean for gaming.”
Sniper Elite 4 also gained praise and a 8/10 review score. “Sniper Elite 4 is easily the best in the series so far,” said out reviewer. “It’s still the same methodical stealth game at its core, but Rebellion have added to that with more possibilities for the player, bigger and more open maps, and a handful of new modes”.
That seems a pretty decent month to me, and Games with Gold also has a cracking month. What do you think of this months freebies? Let us know in the comments!
Original Story below
It’s PlayStation Plus reveal day so it’s time for two more games to put on their best outfits and walk down the red carpet for their PlayStation Plus premiere. Last month’s event was a bit of shambles as PES 2019 was due to make it’s debut but was cruelly cut from the cast at last minute and replaced by Detroit: Become Human. July’s other free game was Horizon Chase Turbo which you probably downloaded, played for five minutes, then deleted.
This month’s games should be revealed at around 4.30pm BST today and will be available to download less than a week later on August 6th. We will update this article as soon as they have been revealed.
Speculation is rife as to what the games could be, will PES 2019 be substituted back in for August? Those who frequent Reddit are suggesting that we might seem the rebooted Doom as a tie in to QuakeCon and also because the three original Dooms have just been released on the PlayStation 4. Perhaps Sony will bring out big guns to try and cut the number of complaints and give subscribers God of War, or maybe The Order: 1886, a criminally underrated game.
There has been one ‘leak’, although I don’t have much faith in it. Glitched Africa have pictures that show EA Sports UFC 3 and Star Wars Battlefront II as being free on the PlayStation Store but that looks more like something to do with EA Play rather than PlayStation Plus. Besides, EA would be nuts to give away two of their big games just as they launch their new service on PS4.
While you are waiting for the games to be announced why not have a bit of a kick about. The demo for Konami’s slightly re-branded eFootball PES 2020 is now live, giving fans and prospective punters a chance to try out the latest iteration in their footballing series ahead of its release on 10th September.
The demo is out now and you can grab the PlayStation 4 version but following this nice link.
We will be back at 4.30pm with the freshly announced games, stay tuned!
