We already knew about the PlayStation Plus extra/premium games in August, but what about the ones we weren’t expecting? Well, this is a good time to find out what’s in store. For August 2022, PlayStation Plus will offer three titles from the Yakuza series, both for the Extra and Premium versions. Luckily, the announcement isn’t as disappointing as it sounds.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon
The PlayStation Plus Essential and Extra/Premium game catalog for August 2022 has been revealed by Sony. These new titles join the roster of already available PlayStation Plus Essential games. Yakuza: Like a Dragon is a highly acclaimed action RPG that is already available on PS4. If you’re a PS Plus Essential subscriber, you can play this game for free after your monthly subscription ends.
The game is the seventh main Yakuza title, and like its predecessors, it retains many of the same elements of the previous titles while breaking a few traditions. This title ditched Kazuma Kiryu and replaced him with Ichiban Kasuga. While this change was initially a joke, it eventually gained steam as fans demanded more turn-based Yakuza games.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2
According to the latest leak by billbil-kun, PlayStation Plus is getting several free games for August 2022. The titles include Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2 and Yakuza: Like a Dragon. These games are only available to PS Plus subscribers, and they are not yet available for purchase. However, you can download them for free if you are a member of PlayStation Plus.

The free PlayStation Plus Extra/Premium Games for August 2022 include Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2, both remasters of the popular Tony Hawk skateboarding games. The games are packed with high-scoring, fast-paced sports action. Alternatively, you can try Little Nightmares, a third-person adventure game with elements of stealth and exploration. The game also has an original soundtrack.
Sony has revealed the line-up of PlayStation Plus Extra/Premium Games for August 2022. We’ve been hearing rumors about these games for months, but today we have the official confirmation. Some of the games on the list are already available for download, while others will only be available in the premium tier. The August 2022 list of games includes Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 Remake, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and Little Nightmares. You can also download these games for free by the first day of August.
PlayStation Plus is offering premium/extra games on a tiered system, which means that the monthly free games will increase in quality. The games will be more mature and will be available on PlayStation 5 and PS4 consoles. Yakuza: Like a Dragon is being touted as one of the best Yakuza games in recent history, and it will also be available for PS4 and PS5 users. There will also be PS5 versions of Tony Hawk and Little Nightmares. This means next-gen console owners will have the option to choose which version they want to download.
