PlayStation Plus Free Games for August 2017

PlayStation Plus Free Games for August 2017

It’s that time of the month again! Sony has unveiled their next line-up of PlayStation Plus free games for August 2017, which will be available for download on Tuesday, August 1.

For the PlayStation 4, there’s Just Cause 3, a third-person action adventure set in an open world in the fictional Mediterranean republic, where the protagonist attempts to restore freedom from a military dictatorship. And Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry, a stand-alone DLC from Assassin’s Creed IV where, after being shipwrecked in Haiti, Adewale joins a group of freedom fighters to free slaves.

On the PlayStation 3, there’s Super Motherload, a co-op “digging” adventure with sci-fi horror elements, where players search to collect gems and minerals Mars. And Snakeball, the 2007 remake of the classic Snake, updated in 3D and with flashy disco graphics.

And for the PlayStation Vita, there’s Downwell, a vertically scrolling platformer in which players explore the depths of a well that is inhabited by monsters. This game is also a cross-plat with the PS4. And Level 22, a comical stealth adventure with puzzle elements, where Gary attempts to sneak back to his office desk after being late for work.

Among the free games in August’s line-up, only Just Cause 3 and Downwell have Platinum trophies to unlock. Just Cause 3 is fairly average in terms of difficulty, though will require roughly 60 hours to complete. Also, both Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry and Level 22 are fairly easy to collect 100% of the Trophies if following a guide, and only needs about 5 hours each. It should also be noted that since Snakeball was released in 2007 before Trophy Support, the game has no Trophies to unlock.
