PS Plus: Sony names free games for August too early - list already known

PS Plus

Sony calls the list of "free" games for PS Plus in August 2021. Apparently too early: The post published on the PlayStation Blog was deleted a little later. One of the "free" games was already determined in advance: Hunter's Arena: Legends will be available for all members to download in August - for both PS4 and PS5. The close combat battle royale action takes you into an ancient East Asian world, in which you as a hunter not only have to fight against deadly demons, but also against each other for survival. It is your job to stand up to 30 other players and prove that you are the "deadliest hunter of all".

In addition to Hunter's Arena: Legends, PS Plus will also include the PS4- Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville and Tennis World Tour 2 games available "for free". The downloads should be possible from August 3rd: Sony usually releases the new PS Plus games as downloads on the first Tuesday of the new month. The regular announcement of the upcoming PS Plus games is expected for Wednesday afternoon.

We're approaching the end of the month, so for PS4 and PS5 gamers that can only mean one thing - the reveal of a new PS Plus line-up. Unlike Microsoft, Sony has a set point in the month where they reveal their next selection of free monthly games. And we're fast approaching that point.

Sony typically reveals the next PS Plus line-up on the final Wednesday of the month, at 4.30pm UK time.

So that means the PS Plus August 2021 line-up should be announced on Wednesday July 28 at 4.30pm BST.

However, PS4 and PS5 gamers don't need to wait that long to find out what the next PS Plus games could be.

That's because Sony looks to have revealed the PS Plus August 2021 line-up early.

Over the weekend the official PlayStation website appeared to reveal the next PS Plus line-up early.

It had previously been announced during the last State of Play that Hunter's Arena Legends is August's free PS5 game.

And now the other games in the August PS Plus line-up have also been announced.

It's emerged Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville and Tennis World Tour 2 will be the other PS Plus games.

These games are available to PS4 gamers, and PS5 via backwards compatibility.

The new PS Plus games will be available to download from Tuesday August 3.

The reveal of the next PS Plus line-up also means time is running out to claim the current free PlayStation Plus games.

The PS Plus line-up for July 2021 features Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and WWE 2K Battlegrounds for the PS4, and A Plague Tale: Innocence for PS5.

These games will be departing PS Plus next week, as will Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown which was previously added to the service.

Here are more details on the newly leaked games for PS Plus...
