Sony has unveiled the eight free games coming to PlayStation Plus in August 2018.
Mafia III leads this month’s lineup of free PlayStation Plus games, and will be available for members to download on PlayStation 4 from August 7, 2018.
Hanger 13’s open-world crime drama is not perfect by any means, but it’s certainly ambitious, very entertaining, and has a wonderful sense of time and place.
Also coming to the PlayStation 4 is 4v1 horror game, Dead by Daylight.
PlayStation 3 owners can download action RPG, Bound by Flame, and over-the-top shooter, Serious Sam 3.
And there are some bonus goodies, too. PS VR game, Here They Lie, and Playlink quiz game, Knowledge is Power are free to download for PlayStation Plus members from August 7.
Here’s the full PS Plus roundup for August.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
