PlayStation Plus Free Games August 2018

Since August begins on a Wednesday, Sony has just now announced their next line-up of PlayStation Plus Free Games August 2018 which are available for download on the first Tuesday of this month, August 7.

On the PlayStation 4, there’s Mafia III, the open-world action game, set in 1968 where war veteran Lincoln Clay returns home to set up a new mafia family to seek revenge against a rival mob. And Dead by Daylight: Special Edition, a multiplayer horror title featuring a serial killer out to slay his prey in a changing environment.

For the PlayStation 3, there’s Bound by Flame, an action RPG where players control a mercenary possessed by a flame demon out to destroy the creatures of Vertiel. And Serious Sam 3 BFE, a first-person shooter that pits the player against a horde of enemies in an open-world environment.

And on the PlayStation Vita, there’s Draw Slasher, which uses touch-screen commands to control a ninja out to rescue his family from the Pirate Monkey Zombies. And Space Hulk, a turn-based strategy set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

In addition to these six freebies, SonyΒ is also adding Here They Lie to the list, the PlayStation VR horror game which is available as a free download until October 2. And if that’s not enough, the party game Knowledge is PowerΒ will also be added for PlayStation Plus members to download for free, until November 6.

Among the PlayStation Plus Free Games August 2018 line-up, Mafia III, Dead by Daylight, Bound by Flame, Serious Sam 3 BFE, Space Hulk, and Knowledge is Power all have Platinum trophies to obtain.

Of these, Knowledge is Power is technically the easiest Platinum and requires only about 10 hours, but requires 6 smartphones or tablets. Mafia III is a fairly easy Platinum, though will require roughly 50 hours of gameplay. Meanwhile, both Bound by Flame and Space Hulk are fairly average in difficulty, requiring 30 and 40 hours respectively.

Finally, if you have a PlayStation VR, then unlocking 100% of the trophies on Here They Lie is easy to do, and only requires a couple hours.
