Here’s what you can play on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita for August 2018

August’s PlayStation Plus Free Games have been revealed and this month’s subscribers can play Mafia III, Dead by Daylight and more.

The new month’s PlayStation Plus games become available when the PlayStation Store updates on the first Tuesday of each month. If you’ve yet to grab July’s games, you’ve got until the early morning hours of Aug. 7.

There are two additional free games this month. One is Knowledge is Power for PlayLink and the other is PSVR horror game Here They Lie.

Here’s the full list of games for the month:

August 2018

  • Mafia III (PS4)
  • Dead by Daylight (PS4)
  • Bound by Flame (PS3)
  • Serious Sam 3 BFE (PS3)
  • Draw Slasher (Vita)
  • Space Hulk (Vita)
  • *Knowledge is Power (PlayLink on PS4)
  • **Here They Lie (PSVR)

    *Free through Nov. 6
    **Free through Oct. 2

In addition, Sony is offering a discount for PlayStation Plus subscribers on its PlayStation Now game streaming service. The service offers over 650 PS4, PS3 and PS2 games to stream and play in full. A three month subscription normally runs for $44.99, but subscribers can get it for $29.99 through Sept. 25.

Want to know what you got free at this time last year or want to see what else has been free this year? You can visit our PlayStation Plus Free Games section here at SCG. The page features a list of every game that’s ever been offered on the PlayStation Plus program.

PlayStation Plus runs $59.99 a year, but discounts can be found from time-to-time, especially around Black Friday. PlayStation Plus is required for most online games, but includes free monthly games, cloud save game storage and more. For more information on other services PlayStation Plus offers, please visit the official PlayStation web page.

Don’t forget, Sony offers weekly sales, many of which have deeper discounts for PS Plus subscribers or are locked out to non-subscribers. Sony has also been running monthly flash sales where games are discounted, sometimes, up to 90 percent off. So, be sure to hit up the PlayStation Blog or just keep an eye on the PlayStation Store for more information on those.

Keep it locked to SCG for monthly updates on the subscription game offerings and everything else gamers from the River City and beyond need to know.
