With boxes of chocolates and PS Plus games, you never know what you are going to get. Sometimes, you bite into the orange creme and want to puke. (Seriously. Does anyone like that flavor?) Is this month the worst thing since that one month when you posted a comment on the PlayStation Blog that said you would be canceling your subscription (which you still have not done), or is this the month you finally try that one game you never had a chance to play? Probably, it is a little of both.
Just Cause 3 headlines the selection for August. We liked it in our review, and we are hoping that subsequent patches have helped with the lengthy load times. Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry is the standalone DLC for the excellent pirate adventure in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. It is smaller story, only lasting for 3 – 5 hours, that focuses on Adewale as he gains a ship and begins to free slaves.
Here is the full list of the games you will have available next week. Let us know in the comments if we should dust off our PS3 or Vita for the other games.
- Just Cause 3, PS4
- Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry, PS4
- Super Motherload, PS3
- Snakeball, PS3
- Downwell, PS Vita (crossbuy with PS4)
- Level 22, PS Vita
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
