The Playstation Plus Free Games for August have been Revealed

While the Playstation Store Summer Sale may catch your attention, free games are obviously welcome too. The North American Playstation Plus free games for August have been revealed and are quite impressive.

Here is the list of games to be added:

  • Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris (Playstation 4)
  • Limbo (Playstation 4)
  • Sound Shapes (Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Playstation Vita)
  • Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones (Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Playstation Vita)
  • Castlestorm Complete Edition (Playstation 3, Playstation Vita)
  • God of War Ascension (Playstation 3)

Games removed in August:

  • Rocket League (Playstaton 4)
  • Styx: Master of Shadows (Playstation 4)
  • MouseCraft (Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Playstation Vita)
  • Entwined (Playstation 4, Playstation Vita)
  • Rain (Playstation 3)
  • Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved ( Playstation Vita)

Perhaps the most interesting game to be added is Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris the latest in the popular spin-off game, has more of a focus on cooperative puzzle solving, and is surprisingly fun. Featuring actual tomb raiding too it seems fairly novel for a modern Lara Croft game. Warmly received by gamers, I’m sure many who haven’t tried it yet will be looking to get their hands on this one.

Limbo will also likely be a popular choice. The hauntingly creepy little indie game was critically acclaimed on its original release and brings something a little different to the Playstation 4. If you have a fear of spiders, this one may not be for you. It does offer a challenge though for those who like the darker games.

With Sound Shapes, Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones, God of War Ascension and CastleStorm completing the list, these offer some fun for Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita fans too. The more interesting games are obviously focused on the Playstation 4.
