Sony has announced August’s lineup of PlayStation Plus games, all of which are available to download from August 1 to September 4.
The highlight here is Sony’s own Dreams, which launches into PlayStation Plus a month before developer Media Molecule ends support for the user-generated creation game. Media Molecule, by the way, has moved onto “an exciting new project”.
To coincide with the launch of Dreams into PlayStation Plus, Media Molecule’s latest game, Tren, will be available to play inside of it. Sony describes Tren as “a nostalgic adventure that puts you in the driving seat of a remarkable toy train, and tells a personal tale about growing up – and the transformative power of play”.
Isometric action adventure Death’s Door and PGA Tour 2K23 round out August’s lineup. IGN’s Death’s Door review returned a 9/10. We said: “Death's Door expertly blends classic dungeon puzzle solving with fast-paced combat encounters to create a memorable adventure across a moody world brimming with secret paths and hidden rewards.”
PGA Tour 2K23 fared less well in IGN’s 6/10 review: “There's not much to be excited about in PGA Tour 2K23, with poorly presented golfing on second-tier courses. It's fiercely accurate to the real sport but lacks personality and variety.”
This is your last call for July’s monthly games: you have until July 31 to claim Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Alan Wake Remastered, and Endling – Extinction is Forever to your game library.
