Sony reveals new PS Plus Extra and Premium games for August 2022

PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium will be getting 12 more games starting on August 16.


Before a couple of months ago, PlayStation Plus was just, well, PS Plus, and PlayStation Now was still around. But, after Sony revamped PS Plus, PS Now is no more. Meanwhile, the standard PS Plus became PS Plus Essential as Sony introduced PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium (or Deluxe in certain territories) tiers. Since then, fans can't stop singing the new PS Plus' praises, and for a good reason.

With all the Yakuza games coming to PS Plus, it's a great idea to start with Yakuza 0.

Just last month, Sony made two games available to PS Plus subscribers on day one of their release. This is on top of adding dozens of new games such as Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade and a boatload of Assassin's Creed titles. It's safe to say that PS Plus is well on its way to giving Xbox Game Pass a good run for its money.

Bugsnax is an underrated game that most definitely deserves the time of your day.

As a follow-up to last month, Sony introduced one of the best free PS Plus games lineup for this month, giving subscribers hit titles such as Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and Little Nightmares. Also, Sony confirmed a few days later that several Yakuza games are joining the Extra and Premium/Deluxe tiers as well. Now, Sony has revealed the 12 games that will be joining the more expensive PS Plus tiers, which include:

The aforementioned games are top-quality additions that should get subscribers excited for what's to come for the rest of the year. Don't forget, more Yakuza and Ubisoft games are coming. Ubisoft, in particular, promised to add 50 games to the Ubisoft Plus Classics library and we're still around two dozen titles short at the moment. Most likely, Sony and Ubisoft are sitting on the announcement until September at this year's Ubisoft Forward showcase.

Trials of Mana should fit right in with all of the JRPG remasters and remakes we've been getting lately.

In other news, Sony will reportedly hold a State of Play showcase before the month ends. However, some are suggesting that Sony might have postponed this until September. But, since Sony has a penchant for stealing the spotlight from other exhibitions, we won't put it above the tech giant to host a State of Play for this month and September.
