Sony has revealed August’s lineup of free PlayStation Plus games.
August’s free PS Plus games have been confirmed, and it’s another solid selection of excellent titles.
On PlayStation 4, subscribers can look forward to playing Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry, the standalone companion piece to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. It’s a marvellous distillation of everything that was good about Black Flag, and is easily digestible if you’re looking for something to keep your blades sharp until Assassin’s Creed Origins arrives in October.
Also available on PlayStation 4 are Avalanche Studios’ Just Cause 3, and That’s You, the first game for Sony’s new PlayLink platform.
Another highly recommended game from August’s PlayStation Plus lineup can be found on Vita. Downwell started life on mobile – and is perhaps best played there – but the PlayStation Vita port is solid, and the game as addictive as ever.
All seven PS Plus games will be available for subscribers to download from August 1st, 2017.
PlayStation Plus Games – August 2017
- Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry
- Just Cause 3
- That’s You
- Super Motherload
- Snake Ball
- Level 22
August’s PlayStation Plus games will available to download from Tuesday August 1st, 2017. Until then, you can still download July’s lineup, which includes Until Dawn, Telltale’s Game of Thrones, Darkstalkers Resurrection, and Tokyo Jungle.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
