More games coming to PlayStation Plus, Splatoon 3 Direct news, and go hands on with Square Enix’s latest JRPG, DioField Chronicles, early. All this on today’s GameSpot news, coming to you from inside Spider-Man 2018 (I’m in the office and gonna see about recording on the roof. Will cut this gag if that location isn’t feasible.)
Sony has revealed the next batch of free games for PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium subscribers. The August 2022 PS Plus Game Catalog lineup includes not one but three Yakuza games, a recent remake in the Mana series, the latest Ghost Recon, and more, coming to the service on August 16.
To start, you can live your Japanese crime family fantasies with Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, and Yakuza Kiwami 2. Those mark the start of Yakuza offerings on PS Plus with others set to come later this year. Extra and Premium members can also get the 1v4 multiplayer game Dead by Daylight, as well as Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands and the extremely wacky adventure game Bugsnax.
Rounding out the new additions will be Metro Exodus, Trials of Mana, Uno, Monopoly Madness, and Monopoly Plus.
These are the premium extras for the higher tiers, separate from the PlayStation Plus Essentials games lineup. Extra and Premium members can grab those games too, which this month include Tony Hawk, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and Little Nightmares.

Splatoon 3 just had its Direct spotlight, revealing a ton of new info about the game. Familiar and newbie NPCs, including Splatoon 3’s new host. Frye, Shiver, and Big Man the stingray.
Can’t wait for the internet to just be awash with erotic Big Man fan art.
