Sony keeps the great streak going for PlayStation Plus with another solid month of free games led by a recent game from 2K Studios. Come check out August’s free games!
Mafia III Regular Price: $49.99; Free for PS Plus members
1968. New Bordeaux.
After years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: family isn’t who you’re born with, it’s who you die for. When his surrogate family, the black mob, is wiped out by the Italian Mafia, Lincoln builds a new family and blazes a path of military-grade revenge through the Mafioso responsible.
*NEW BORDEAUX, A REIMAGINED NEW ORLEANS: A vast open world ruled by the mob and detailed with the sights and sounds of the era.
*A LETHAL ANTI-HERO: Be Lincoln Clay, orphan and Vietnam veteran hell bent on revenge for the deaths of his surrogate family
*REVENGE YOUR WAY: Choose your own play-style brute force, blazing guns or stalk-and-kill tactics, to tear down the Italian Mafia.
*A NEW FAMILY ON THE ASHES OF THE OLD: Build a new criminal empire your way by deciding which lieutenants you reward, and which you betray.
Dead by Daylight: Special Edition Regular Price: $44.99; Free for PS Plus members
Death Is Not an Escape.
Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer (4vs1) horror game where one player takes on the role of the savage Killer, and the other four players play as Survivors, trying to escape the Killer and avoid being caught, tortured and killed.
Survivors play in third-person and have the advantage of better situational awareness. The Killer plays in first-person and is more focused on their prey.
The Survivors’ goal in each encounter is to escape the Killing Ground without getting caught by the Killer – something that sounds easier than it is, especially when the environment changes every time you play.
Here They Lie Regular Price: $26.99; Free for PS Plus members
DEATH IS NO ESCAPE
Developed by Tangentlemen under the banner of Santa Monica Studio’s external development group, Here The Lie is an uncanny horror experience where death is not a checkpoint. Delve into an inescapable, surreal world where unsettling encounters and environments come to life.
Knowledge is Power Regular Price: $14.99; Free for PS Plus members
Answer a massive variety of trivia questions to outsmart your opponents, with tactile challenges thrown in to keep you on your toes. This is all about speed and accuracy — are you up to the task?
As always, for PlayStation Plus users who don’t have a PS4 yet, be sure to log in at the PSN Webstore to get the games added to your collection so that you can download them once you do get one. Sony announced that PS+ would be discontinuing both PS3 and PS Vita titles in March of 2019, so if you are relying on those through the services and don’t see the value in PS+ anymore you should look at what your options are.
This is another good month, featuring Mafia III, which from my understanding has a great story, but gameplay that can feel a bit repetitive. I heard some great things about Dead by Daylight and its multiplayer world. Here they Lie looks like a cool addition to the Plus lineup and it will remain there until October 2nd, so be sure to check it out. Finally, Knowledge is Power is one of the play link games that let you use your phones as controllers and should be a good time. That one will remain on plus until November 6th.
