A new subscription model has been in effect for PlayStation since June; now it has several levels, the cost of which varies.

Those who upgrade to PS Plus Extra will receive 400 PS4 and PS5 games “for free”. The Premium tier includes retro games from PS1, PS2 and even PS3. The full list of games for PS Plus Extra and Premium can be found here..

- Assassin’s Creed black flag: Just like when Sony gave us God of War to prepare us for Ragnarok, we expect them to give us AC: Black Flag to set us up for skull bones.
- Match Point – Tennis Championship: We are always given at least one garbage game that no one wants to just fill the space.

Essential PS Plus Games August 2022 | Confirmed
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 (PS4, PS5)
- User Note: 8.7
- Critics Rating: 89
Not only is it a great nostalgic hit, but it’s also one of the best remakes in recent memory, and one of the very few skateboarding games in a long time. For everyone who loved these games or loves fun sports games, this is a must play. This is a fantastic pack with all the content from the first two Pro Skater games plus improved quality and new music. This should be checked, no questions.
Unfortunately, the developers of Vicarious Visions were hired to create Diablo Immortal, and other remakes of classic games have been put on hold. However, getting these early games for free is a good consolation.
Yakuza 7: Like a Dragon (PS4, PS5)
- User Note: 8.3
- Critics Rating: 86
Another slam dunk for the PS Plus lineup next month. The Yakuza series is fantastic, and Yakuza 7 is no exception. If you like silly comedies and serious, brilliant storytelling, you should play this game because Yakuza does both very well. The latest Yakuza title game also introduced a fantastic JRPG system and is under development. Even if you’ve never played a Yakuza game before, don’t be put off by the sheer number: Like a dragon it’s reloaded with a whole host of new characters and locations, so you can even start with this one.
Little Nightmares (PS4)
- User Note: 8.1
- Critics Rating: 78
The most specialized game in this range is still a certified banger. Every horror game fan should watch Little Nightmaresif they haven’t already. This is a very smart and scary little game with amazing visual style, very smart puzzles and amazing atmosphere.
These are your PS Plus games of the month. Be sure to try these games, most likely you will have a great time playing at least one of them.
