Check out the August PS Plus highlights
The players of PlayStation will have many choices on how to enjoy the month of August that comes around. The list of free games was released for the various Sony consoles for company service subscribers, the PS Plus (entitled to a controversy with the service in Brazil).
Fighting for freedom
The first highlight of the free games line is Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry. The game was originally part of the DLC sensational Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, but in a short time it became a stand-alone game. The game tells the story of the ex-slave Adéwalé, who after the events of the main game became a murderer and captain of the ship that fights for the freedom of his people and against the tyranny of the Templars.
The next major title on the August PS Plus list was a source of controversy among players with Brazilian accounts. While for residents of United States and Europe the second highlight game of the service is Just Cause 3, we are left with Strike Vector EX. Sony has yet to comment on the reason for this differentiated selection for Latin America, but certainly many fans and players were unhappy with this decision.
Just Cause 3 is a frantic and explosive action game that follows the mercenary Rico Rodriguez while he tries to free the population from his homeland, the Medici archipelago, the oppression of the dictator General Di Ravello. The game is packed with lots of explosions, shots and all the clichés that action movie fans could expect.
Already Strike Vector EX is an electrifying blend of action with spaceships and shooter, in which the player needs to create his own strategy to overcome hordes of enemy ships and at the same time to know how to equip his own ship, choosing aspects such as weapons, hull, propellers and many others. It is not as exciting as Just Cause 3, but it certainly manages to amuse the player for several hours with various combats.
The complete list of titles available for the PS Plus in August includes:
- Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry, PS4
- Just Cause 3 PS4 (PSN US), Strike Vector EX, PS4 (PSN BR)
- Super Motherload, PS3
- Snakeball, PS3
- Downwell, PS Vita (crossbuy with PS4)
- Level 22, PS Vita
All games on the service will be available for free download this Tuesday, August 1st, so if you’re a PS Plus subscriber, enjoy!
