A solid month for both platforms.
PS Plus August 2019

The "free" games coming this August for PlayStation Plus subscribers and Xbox Live Gold members were revealed this week. It looks to be a fairly solid month for both platforms, with Sony offering up WipEout Omega Collection and Sniper Elite 4. Sony's games will be made available to PlayStation 4 owners starting August 6 and running through until September 2. This means that you have until August 5 to pick up Detroit: Become Human Digital Deluxe Edition and Horizon Chase Turbo for July's offerings.

Meanwhile, Microsoft is offering up Gears of War 4, Forza Motorsport 6, Torchlight, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow for those with active Xbox Live Gold subscriptions. All four of these titles are playable on the Xbox One thanks to backwards compatibility on the last two titles listed there.

PlayStation Plus
WipEout Omega Collection
Combining WipEout 2048, WipEout HD and the HD Fury expansion into one turbo-charged package, Wipeout Omega Collection brings the breakneck speed and combat thrills of the anti-gravity racing franchise to PS4.

Race against the clock and other competitors to take home a podium win, unlocking dozens of ships as you progress through 26 tracks. Competition gets fiercer online*, with eight players duking it out in high-speed circuits. Alternatively, you can go one-on-one with a friend on the couch.

Those looking for the ultimate thrill can also experience the entire game, including all modes and tracks, in PlayStation VR.

Sniper Elite 4
Slip behind enemy lines and work to drive out Axis forces from the Italian peninsula. Scout huge, varied environments as a covert operative and take out enemies before
setting up the perfect hit on high-value targets.

Use a mixture of traps and explosives, hazardous environments, melee takedowns and, of course, your trusty rifle to sow chaos in enemy strongholds. For even greater strategy, team up with a friend online* to take down targets in the co-operative campaign mode or enjoy dedicated co-op missions for two to four players and competitive multiplayer modes for up to 12 players.
