PlayStation Plus players will get three new games in the month of August — Hunters Arena: Legends, Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, and Tennis World Tour 2. All three games will be available for PlayStation 4 players with the first one being available on PlayStation 5 as well. However, thanks to PlayStation 5’s backwards compatibility, you can still play the other games on the PS5. All three games will be available to download starting Tuesday, August 3. Starting next week, players can add these three games to their library and download them to their consoles until next month, provided they have an active PS Plus subscription.
Sony announced through its blog that all three games will be available to download for PS Plus members till September 6. As mentioned, the three games available to PS Plus members in the month of August are Hunters Arena: Legends, Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, and Tennis World Tour 2 (Review). Here’s a quick look at the three games:
Hunters Arena: Legends
Hunters Arena: Legends is a 30-player PvP and PvE combat-based battle royale that is “set in an ancient age in which humanity battles each other as well as a growing legion of demons that have been unleashed upon the world.” The game is developed by Manstisco and is available to play on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC.
Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville
The latest instalment in the Plants vs. Zombies franchise, Battle for Neighborville has PvP, PvE, a co-op tower-defence mode, and free-roam areas with standalone campaigns that can be either be played solo or with a friend in split-screen co-op — available only on consoles and not on PC. Notably, the game is also available to play for free on EA Play.
Tennis World Tour 2
Tennis World Tour 2 offers players a chance to try out their skills in doubles matches, a mode that was missing in the first Tennis World Tour title that was released in 2018. Tennis World Tour 2 also allows local multiplayer mode for up to four players on the same device or two players on two machines. The game lets players manage their season, staff, equipment, and sponsors in the Career mode. This game is also only available to download for free on PS Plus subscribers on PlayStation 4. However, the game can also be purchased and played on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
PS Plus subscribers have until Monday, August 2, to add the free games from July — Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, WWE 2K Battlegrounds, and A Plague Tale: Innocence.
PlayStation Plus subscriptions are available in India at Rs. 499 for a month, Rs. 1,199 for three months, and Rs. 2,999 for 12 months.
