August’s PlayStation Plus games have been announced by Sony

According to Sony, the August 2022 PlayStation Plus titles will be Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2, Little Nightmares, and Yakuza: Like a Dragon. All three titles will be made available to all PlayStation Plus members on August 2 at no additional charge, as announced on the PlayStation Blog.

A new chapter in the increasingly absurd and action-packed Yakuza series, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, follows Ichiban Kasuga as he seeks to ascend through the ranks of his criminal organization from zero to hero. As the first game in the series to feature turn-based fighting, Like a Dragon heralded the dawn of a new era for the series. Yakuza 8, whose sequel has now been officially revealed, will carry on this mechanic.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon, according to IGN, “makes some daring moves in a new direction for the series but neglects to retain its balance.”

The original—and perhaps the best—Tony Hawk skateboarding games have been remastered, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2 delivers all the fast-paced, high-scoring sports action that fans have come to expect from a remake.

As the guy himself just stated that the remasters of 3 and 4 had been canceled, it's also the last Tony Hawk game fans can anticipate for a time. Fortunately, Pro Skater 1 & 2 made a solid first impression, as IGN stated in our 9/10 review: “Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 proved that stepping backward has been the best step forward for the series in 15 years.”

Last but not least, Little Nightmares is a third-person adventure game with stealth and exploration aspects that is set in a creepy (surprise, surprise) setting. As she travels back to her home, players assume the character of Six, a little girl who has been abducted.

Little Nightmares is a very welcome new perspective on horror, according to IGN, who also called it “gleefully odd, unceasingly bleak, and quietly smart.”

These three new games will be free to play until September 6, while the titles from last month, such as Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time, The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan, and Arcadegeddon, will be accessible until August 1.

The redesigned PlayStation Plus tiers have now been formally released worldwide by Sony, but as this selection of free titles shows, the Essential tier, which is the most affordable, is almost unchanged from the previous PlayStation Plus.
