PlayStation Plus Free Games For August 2022 Leaked

The next batch of free games for PlayStation Plus members has leaked early. Yet again, serial leaker billbil-kun has posted the trio of freebies on Dealabs ahead of the official announcement. The August 2022 PlayStation Plus lineup will include Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and Little Nightmares. This would undoubtedly be one of the best PS Plus lineups of the year. An official announcement from PlayStation should arrive later today.

Released in 2020, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 earned positive reviews from critics and was the last game from developer Vicarious Visions before it was absorbed into Blizzard. A remake of the first two classic Tony Hawk Pro Skater games, the collection used the DNA of those titles to form a new skateboarding experience that looked great and played even better with some clever tweaks to the formula. If you’re old-school to the bone, you can also switch the gameplay to its original format and see how much muscle memory you’ve retained over the decades.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon was a major departure for the franchise, as it starred a brand new protagonist and flipped the action from street-brawling to RPG-inspired turn-based combat. Even with those big changes, the core Yakuza formula of a sprawling episodic story, a massive sandbox to explore, and a well-developed cast remained intact.

As for Little Nightmares, this 2017 game earned favorable reviews for its eerie atmosphere, imaginative style, and tense gameplay sequences. “While its puzzles are at times too straightforward, Little Nightmares is a chilling odyssey well worth taking,” Matt Espineli wrote in GameSpot’s Little Nightmares review.

These three games, once confirmed by Sony, will be available for all three tiers of PlayStation Plus starting August 2.
