PlayStation Plus free games for August

August is here and it’s time to take a look at what’s in store for PlayStation Plus members. If you didn’t get the chance to download the free games available for July, Sony has a good set to make up for it. For the PlayStation 4 comes Just Cause 3 and Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry. Those two games alone are more than worth the PS Plus subscription. For the PlayStation 3 comes Super Motherload and Snakeball. And for the PlayStation Vita comes Downwell and Level 22.

Check out the full list below!

PlayStation 4

Just Cause 3

The Mediterranean republic of Medici is suffering under the brutal control of General Di Ravello, a dictator with an insatiable appetite for power. Enter Rico Rodriguez, a man on a mission to destroy the General’s hold on power by any means necessary. With over 400 square miles of complete freedom from sky to seabed and a huge arsenal of weaponry, gadgets and vehicles, prepare to unleash chaos in the most creative and explosive ways you can imagine.

Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry

Rise up against slavery with the latest single-player action-adventure game in the Assassin’s Creed® franchise. Born a slave, Adewale found freedom as a pirate. Now, 15 years after the events of Assassin’s Creed® IV Black Flag™, Adewale has become a trained Assassin. After being shipwrecked in what is now known as Haiti and left without weapons or a crew, Adewale starts to assist the locals in an effort to assemble a crew and steal a ship. The more he helps, however, the more he is drawn into the Maroon slave community. Forced to face his past, he sets out to free the slaves and bring death to their captors.

PlayStation 3

Super Motherload*

Set on Mars in an alternate Cold-War era, Super Motherload is a 1 to 4-player couch co-op digging adventure with branching storyline choices, a fully voiced cast of Soviet and American characters, and a procedurally-generated world that changes each time you play. Purchase powerful upgrades and supplies for your mining pod as you progress and prosper, as well as rare special abilities with random availability.

Snakeball

Snakeball™ is a funky, futuristic sport set in a vibrant arena.  Glide across the dazzling disco floor on your hoversnake, collecting balls and scoring goals. Watch out for the other snakeballers desperate to knock you for a spin with a flick of their tails or a blast from their fiendish weapons. Chaotic action and energetic music bring together up to 8 players in entertaining online matches for a fun, unique gameplay experience.

PlayStation Vita

Downwell*

Downwell is a curious game about a young person venturing down a well in search of untold treasures with only his Gunboots for protection. Make your way further and further down into the darkness filled with nasty creatures and mysterious secrets to collect the spectacular red gems scattered about the rocks.

Level 22

Gary is an office worker who oversleeps after a drunken night out on the town. Here’s where it gets tricky, because this isn’t the first time Gary’s been late for work. He could be fired if he’s spotted arriving at his desk after everyone else yet again. Can you prove he’s smart and sneaky enough to make his way up all the 22 floors without being seen?

*PlayStation Store indicates purchase of this game allows access to PS4 version as well. See site for details.
