It’s that time of the month when the lovely people at Sony dig deep into their bottomless games vault and shake loose a couple of nuggets to keep your calloused gaming fingers busy for the forthcoming month and beyond. Unlike last month, there’s only two games available for August but the good news is that one of them is already available for download!
As always, remember that Plus games can be added to your library if you don’t have enough space to download them or time to play them and that they are only playable with an active Plus subscription.
Like a cutesy acid trip on the Takeshi’s Castle set crossed with a battle royale, Fall Guys is a free-to-play 60-player multiplayer party game available from August 4 to 31. Compete with friends and other players in colourfully brutal free-for-alls or co-op challenges riddled with hilarious physics-based obstacles. Wobble along oversized see-saws, race up booby-trapped mountain slopes and bounce over flying barriers to the finish line in your customisable Fall Guy of choice.
CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE 2 CAMPAIGN REMASTERED
While Fall Guys is a brand new title free to PS Plus users on launch day, the second free game for August is a stone cold classic. Albeit one that’s had a bit of work done to it.
Back in 2009, as the Call of Duty franchise was beginning its annualised supremacy, that year’s entry dropped what many consider to be the peak campaign entry in the form of Modern Warfare 2. Following on from the events of the critically-acclaimed Modern Warfare, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered revisits the high-octane action-adventure that created a phenomenon and set the standard for military shooters with tight, responsive gunplay and jaw-dropping set-pieces.
Rediscover classic missions like Cliffhanger, The Gulag and Whiskey Hotel as you once again join Soap, Price, Ghost and the rest of Task Force 141 in a globe-spanning fight to counter a deadly new threat. Unfortunately, only the remastered campaign is available with your Plus subscription but, if you’re itching for CoD multiplayer, you’ve only a few months to wait until this year’s title drops 😉
Modern Warfare 2 is available from July 28 to August 31.
