Rebel Galaxy, Yakuza 5 Headline PlayStation Plus Lineup For August

There's not much for PlayStation 4 owners in next month's PlayStation Plus lineup, but if you have a PlayStation 3? That's a different story. Remember, though Sony advertises these games as "free", an active PlayStation Plus subscription is required to download and play the games featured here.

Here's the lineup for August:

PlayStation 4

  • Tricky Towers
  • Rebel Galaxy
  • Ultratron

PlayStation 3

  • Yakuza 5
  • Retro/Grade
  • Ultratron

PS Vita

  • Patapon 3
  • Ultratron


    Rebel Galaxy is meant to be good. The Gamers with Jobs podcast often talks some sweet sugar about that game.

    And in other gaming news, Warhammer: Vermintide is coming to X-box One and PS4. It's kinda like Left-4-Dead with skaven instead of zombies. Looks fun.

      I bought RG but just never really got into it. It's not terrible or anything, just didn't appeal to me as much as I thought I would.

      I may actually dust off the PS3 for Yakuza 5, though.

    I enjoy reading the speculation on what the next month's free games are likely to be and then having a giggle when I see how wrong it was. A bit of a guilty pleasure.

      It's great:

      "Next month I think we'll get Doom, GTA V and Arkham Knight"

      "Tricky Towers? What the heck is Tricky Towers?"

        I had a good laugh at the previous June predictions.

        "With the likely announcements of Dishonored 2 & Watch Dogs 2 at E3, we could easily see the originals as part of the PS Plus line up in months to come".

    i really liked rebel galaxy, scratches the space itch

    Retro/Grade is an awesome rhythm game. You can even play it with a guitar controller if you so wish.



      YES! So glad I held out. I'd almost folded and bought it. It's going straight to the top of the pile!

    Conceptually I really like Yakuza games but I can never stick with them to the end. Most likely I'll download and play it for a few days before forgetting about it forever.

    Dude are you kidding? Rebel Galaxy is so good! That's some seriously sweet space truckin' right there. I guess it isn't for everyone, but it is worth it's normal $20 price point - for free? Hell yes.

    *Facepalms* Should've just bought a PS3 instead of a PS4.

    This influx of crap indie games is ushering in a new era of box art/concept art being superior to the games they are designed to sell. Its the C64 all over again!!
