PlayStation Plus’ monthly free games are a make-or-break for many gamers, so here are some ideas for great games Sony can release in August.
During last week’s State of Play livestream, Sony confirmed the melee-centric battle-royal game Hunter’s Arena: Legends coming to PS4 and PS5 next month and will debut as a free PlayStation Plus played throughout August. Just like the launch of Destruction AllStars back in February, Hunter’s Arena is the kind of live service game that needs to establish a strong player base quickly, and releasing on PS Plus is a great way to help build an audience. However, it will not be everyone̵
Sony has done a fantastic job of selling players why PlayStation Plus is important since the launch of PlayStation 5, and it is very important that they keep the momentum going for the rest of the summer while new game releases are minimal. The official announcement of next month’s lineup is just two weeks away, so here’s our complete PS Plus free games wish list for August 2021.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – Campaign Remastered
When Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare released in late 2016, it was released with a pack-in remaster of one of the most influential video games of all time, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Three years later, Activision released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – Campaign Remastered, a remastered version of the single player, while not including the sequels iconic multiplayer mode and collaborative mode. It has long been rumored about it Modern Warfare 3 – Remastered Campaign was developed around the same time, and Activision has reportedly been on the game at the right time – which many believe will be before the end of 2021.
Back in May, known Duty calls leak TheMW2Ghost made the claim that Modern Warfare 3 – Remastered Campaign “definitely” coming this year, “and that it’s going to be exclusive to PlayStation consoles for the first month.” the fact that Modern Warfare 2 – Campaign Remastered was also exclusive to PlayStation for a month and was released on PS Plus three months later, and this is a wish list game that could very well be an option before the summer is over.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – Campaign Remastered rumored to be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
No man’s heaven
The comeback story of No man’s heaven is one of the most talked about and referenced transformations in video game history, and is used as a shining example of what struggles with live service games such as Fallout 76 or Anthem could come up with enough investment and dedication. No man’s heavenContinued success in recent years is not only due to Hello Games, which continuously supports the game and releases a dozen game-changing updates. The studio has finally gone beyond all the promises it made about the game in the first place.
In 2021, No man’s heaven is a must-play experience for any hardcore gamer, and it’s incredibly surprising that it was never released on PS Plus, given that it was once an exclusive PlayStation 4. In the latest Prism update, Hello Games released a complete visual overhaul of the game’s graphics with volumetric lighting, enhanced rain effects, rendering of fur on creatures in the wild, enhanced photo mode and the ability to tame flying creatures as pets, along with other quality of life and visual enhancements. No man’s heaven is the perfect game to drop during downtime in the summer before players are flooded with AAA releases for the rest of the year.
No man’s heaven is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
John Wick Hex
Developed by Bithell Games (Thomas was alone, The solitaire conspiracy), John Wick Hex is a neo-noir action strategy game where players get to see John Wicks and the Continental world before the events in the movies. With award-winning voice actor Troy Baker (The Last of Us: Part II, Death Stranding) in the role of the villain, with Ian McShane and Lance Reddick reprising their roles as Winston and Charon, respectively, John Wick Hex is a worthy entry in the series and a great strategy game. The worldwide release of John Wick: Chapter 4 is not until May 2022, so here’s a game that will help fill the void in the meantime.
John Wick Hex is now available for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
