PlayStation's PS Plus announcement has happened, so we now know what games we're getting for free in August 2021.

Below is everything you need to know about what you can play and when you can play them.


Latest - Official PS Plus Games Reveal

PlayStation have officially revealed the full August 2021 PS Plus games lineup, following the leak last week.

As you can see, the full list of free games with PS Plus in August 2021 is:

  • Hunter's Arena: Legends (PS5)
  • Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville (PS4)
  • Tennis World Tour 2 (PS4)

Games Release Date

The PS Plus games for August are likely to go live sometime around Tuesday, 3 August.

They should be live on the store from midnight in your local time, but you will likely have to search for them.


The PS Plus tab is unlikely to be updated with what's free until later in the afternoon.

PS Plus August Games Leaked

Usually, when a leak like this happens it's due to insider info or data mining, but not this time. PlayStation themselves accidentally leaked the PS Plus lineup for August by outright uploading it to their website.

LEAK: PlayStation themselves are responsible for the leak.

Unusual as this situation is, at least we have some idea of what will be available ahead of time. The lineup was revealed to be;

  • Tennis World Tour 2
  • Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighbourville
  • Hunter's Arena: Legends

Given that Hunter's Arena was believed to be a free-to-play title, it has made many people think it may be that a starter pack that is being made available via PS Plus like they have done for other free-to-play games in the past.

However, the game is also on Steam in early access for £15.99, so it appears it will be the entire game made free and not just additional content.
