Got your vaccinations, but it’s too hot to go outside? Well, Sony has the answer with another set of freebies to play. And so, here is the line-up of PlayStation Plus free games August 2021 which are available for download on Tuesday, August 3.
First, there’s Hunter’s Arena: Legends, a brand-new game for both the PS4 and PS5. An online battle royal which takes place in ancient Asia, players can select from a roaster of 17 characters and fight to the death using a combination of martial arts and swords, in either a free-for-all or teams of three.
Next, for the PS4, there’s Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. First released in late 2019, the game is the third installment in the Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare spin-off series of Plants vs. Zombies, in which players side with either the plants or zombies in this third-person shooter.
Last, for the PS4, there’s Tennis World Tour 2, first released last year September. Mixing sims with real pros, players can create their own character in career mode, or face off against online players in multiplayer.
All three titles for the PlayStation Plus free games August 2021 have Platinum trophies to unlock.
The Platinum for Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville may be the easiest to obtain, though also the most time consuming. Since you will need to grind 20 characters to Master level, expect well over 100 hours for the Platinum.
The Platinum for Tennis World Tour 2 is of average difficulty, though of course this depends on your experience with tennis games. There are some online trophies to unlock, which can be boosted if you’re having a difficult time.
Since Hunter’s Arena: Legends is a brand new title, we unfortunately have no idea as of yet the difficulty or time required in obtaining the Platinum.
