Been keeping an eye out on what free games your Playstation Plus subscription offers you for the month? If not, you’re in luck: our handy PS Plus August games guide will give you the rundown so you can nab a nifty title this month. While the PlayStation store’s current subscriber offerings are from vastly different genres, we’re sure there’s something there for all PlayStation 4 owners to love.
PS Plus August Games Guide — Wipeout Omega Collection
The first of the two PS Plus games available this in August is the Wipeout Omega Collection. This is a repackage of a number of titles: Wipeout HD, its Fury expansion, and Wipeout 2048. For those who are new to the series, the Wipeout games are racing games with a sci-fi twist: anti-gravity vehicles. There’s plenty there to suit PS Plus subscribers with a need for speed, and there’s also the ability to hook a mate up with multiplayer and/or PS VR if you’re wanting something a little more intense.
PS Plus August Games Guide — Sniper Elite 4
Not particularly enraptured by the thought of piloting a futuristic ship around a racecourse? It doesn’t matter; there are other ways to get your heart racing in this month’s PS Plus lineup. Enter Sniper Elite 4, a title takes the series back to 1940s Europe where you’ll have to rely on more than just your excellent firearm skills. Sniper Elite 4 throws the book at you and then some, introducing a number of bits and pieces to keep track of as you eliminate targets across the Italian landscape via a mix of stealth and action. Much like Wipeout Omega, this game also has multiplayer features, so you can either team up with a mate to take down enemies or go head to head to see who’s the quicker (and more accurate) long-range draw.
The PS Plus games available this month were definitely popular on release, so subscribers should feel far from shafted by August’s selection. Whether you’re a racing fiend or just someone with an appreciation for the art of assassination, you’ll be well-served by picking up one of the two titles and giving it a fair go. Keep an eye out for the games poking their heads around the corner next month; we’ll have the scoop!
