The month of August is absolutely stacked for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
PlayStation Plus August 2022

The PlayStation Blog shared details on the free games coming in August 2022 for those with active PlayStation Plus subscriptions. Those games are Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, and Little Nightmares. All of these titles are absolute bangers and everyone with PlayStation Plus who have not yet played them need to do so.

All of these games will be made available starting on August 2 and will go away on September 6. These games are available to Plus subscribers across all tiers (Essential, Extra, and Premium). All games save for Little Nightmares have PlayStation 5 versions available.

Yakuza: Like A Dragon | PS4, PS5
Level up from underdog to dragon in this action RPG. Ichiban Kasuga, a low-ranking grunt of a low-ranking yakuza family in Tokyo, returns to society after serving 18 years for a crime he didn’t commit. Uncover the truth behind his family’s betrayal while exploring – and fighting – your way across a modern-day Japanese city. Build a party from a ragtag group of society’s outcasts, spending time with them to unlock new abilities and combo skills. Take time off from your quest to immerse yourself in go-karting, arcade games or 50 substories.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 Cross-Gen Deluxe Bundle | PS4, PS5
Drop back in with the most iconic skateboarding games ever made. Play Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater & Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 in one epic collection, rebuilt from the ground up in incredible HD. All the pro skaters, levels, and tricks are back and fully remastered, plus more. Skate to songs from the era-defining soundtrack along with new music, hit insane trick combos, or shred all the original game modes by going head-to-head with local 2-player modes! Strengthen your skills by taking your sessions online and competing against players from around the world in multiplayer modes and live leaderboards. Play as skaters from the original roster (Tony Hawk, Kareem Campbell, Bucky Lasek, and more) or slide into the new roster made up of Olympian skaters (Nyjah Huston, Aori Nishimura, Leticia Bufoni, and more.)

Little Nightmares | PS4
Immerse yourself in Little Nightmares, a dark whimsical tale that will confront you with your childhood fears! Help Six escape The Maw – a vast, mysterious vessel inhabited by corrupted souls looking for their next meal. As you progress on your journey, explore the most disturbing dollhouse offering a prison to escape from and a playground full of secrets to discover. Reconnect with your inner child to unleash your imagination and find the way out!
I will add here that if you have not yet played any Yakuza game before this, worry not. Like a Dragon is kind of like a soft reboot for the franchise. There are definitely some ties into the previous games, but this is its own story with an all-new protagonist and unique gameplay design. And just like with all Yakuza games, Like a Dragon starts out a bit slow but becomes what I like to describe as "freaking incredible" in short order.

A sequel to Yakuza: Like a Dragon is in development. Our first look at the sequel came just earlier this month from a very unlikely source.
