Following a ballyhooed June relaunch, Sony’s PS Plus membership now comes with entry to a games-on-demand library (effectively, for those who pay for both of the 2 pricier tiers). Like Microsoft’s competing Xbox Sport Cross service, PS Plus is beginning to see an everyday addition of a number of video games on a month-to-month foundation—gotta preserve the content material wheel churning.

Final month noticed the addition of cat recreation Stray alongside a ton of Murderer’s Creed video games, Ubisoft’s long-running sequence of historic stabby sims. A few of the scheduled titles for August—Bugsnax! Yakuza!—are thrilling. However the service continues to be missing relating to considered one of its huge guarantees: a strong basic video games library. Right here’s every little thing coming to Sony’s games-on-demand service beginning August 16:

  • Bugsnax
  • Useless by Daylight
  • Ghost Recon Wildlands
  • Metro Exodus
  • Monopoly Insanity
  • Monopoly Plus
  • Trials of Mana
  • Yakuza Kiwami
  • Yakuza Kiwami 2
  • Yakuza 0
  • UNO

Behaviour Interactive’s asymmetrical horror recreation Useless by Daylight is a welcome addition, and can give gamers who’ve been on the fence an opportunity to strive it out. Yakuza, I’m contractually obligated to say by advantage of working at Kotaku, is and endlessly might be value your time. However another additions are much less thrilling. The PS5 model of Bugsnax was accessible free to PS Plus subscribers when it launched in November 2020. Ghost Recon Wildlands additionally landed on Xbox Sport Cross earlier this month, so clearly Ubisoft needs individuals to play that recreation, shamelessly jingoistic as it’s.

The lineup additional leaves one thing to be desired, particularly for these paying for the priciest Premium tier, which prices $18 a month or $120 a yr. Earlier than rolling out its PS Plus revamp, Sony broadly touted its basic recreation library—comprising titles from the PlayStation 1, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation Transportable catalogs—as a significant promoting level. Up to now, that part, totaling the basic video games from all three platforms, tallies to a mixed 41 titles. However hey, a minimum of we’re getting a comparatively respectable 2020 remake of a 1995 Sq. RPG! Wanna guess what platform it was initially on?

The SNES.
