PS Plus: Free PS4 Games Of August 2018 Are Still Available
Mafia 3, Dead by Daylight, and more.
We're nearing the end of August, but the latest offering of free PlayStation Plus games remains available. As is the norm, these games will be available throughout the month of August, expiring on September 4, when they'll be replaced by a new batch of as-yet unrevealed games. [Update: September's PS Plus games have been announced, and one of them, Destiny 2, is free right now. You've got just a few more days to claim August's games.]
First up on PlayStation 4 is Mafia III, the open-world crime game set in New Bordeaux, a New Orleans-like city from the civil rights era. You take on the role of Lincoln Clay, a Vietnam vet who comes back into town to get revenge for the death of the family who took him in. PS4 also offers Dead by Daylight, a competitive 4v1 horror game that matches four survivor characters against one relentless killer.
PlayStation 3 offers the action-RPG Bound by Flame, along with Serious Sam 3: BFE. On Vita, you can get Draw Slasher and the Warhammer 40K game Space Hulk. As a bonus, a couple more games are on-tap for an extended period. The PSVR horror game Here They Lie is available until October 2 and the quiz game Knowledge is Power is up until November 6.
PS3 and Vita owners have less than a year to continue reaping the benefits of PlayStation Plus. Starting on March 8, 2019, those two platforms will phase out of the service and only PlayStation 4 games will be offered from that point onward.
