PS4 and PS5 owners get an eclectic mix of free games
PlayStation Plus subscribers will get free access to three games in August: PopCap and Electronic Arts’ third-person shooter Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville and Nacon’s Tennis World Tour 2 for PlayStation 4, and Hunter’s Arena: Legends for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. All three games will be available for download via PS Plus starting Aug. 3.
Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville was originally released in 2019, and is a successor to EA’s Garden Warfare games. Battle for Neighborville includes team-based battles in PvP and PvE modes, 23 customizable player classes, and split-screen co-op play. Tennis World 2 launched in September 2020, two years after the first game in the series, and it offers a professional tennis simulation. An upgraded version for the new console generation launched in March.
Hunter’s Arena: Legends will make its debut on PlayStation 5 in August, offering players a brawler-style battle royale featuring 17 playable hunters. Hunter’s Arena: Legends has been in Steam Early Access on PC since July 2020.
PlayStation Plus subscribers can still download July’s games — Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, WWE 2K Battlegrounds, and A Plague Tale: Innocence — through Aug. 2. Sega’s Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown, released in June, is also available through PS Plus until Aug. 2.
August’s PlayStation Plus games will be available to download through Sept. 6.
