Latest - The PS Plus August 2021 games can be downloaded now, whether you're searching for them or going via the PS Plus section of the store.

While the reveal of the monthly PS Plus games is always exciting, being actually able to download the August 2021 PS Plus games is what everyone has been waiting for.


Below, we've got everything you need to know about the release time of the monthly games so that you can get involved nice and early.

August 2021 PS Plus Release Time

The August 2021 PS Plus games will be available to download on August 20 from midnight in your local time. However, finding them isn't that simple.

Sony doesn't usually add the games to the PS Plus tab of the PS Store until mid-afternoon on the day the games release for free, but you should be able to claim them from midnight.


There is always some crossover where both the current and previous months' set of games are free.

All you have to do to find the new ones is search for them by name on the store, and then claim them from their page.

They will then be promoted on the front page of the store and in the PlayStation Plus tab later in the day.

Full Games Lineup

As for what games are actually available, it was all revealed last week.

PlayStation officially revealed the full August 2021 PS Plus games lineup on Twitter, and it confirmed the leak from a few days earlier.


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)

PlayStation leaked the lineup themselves on their own website. We'll have all the details you need on next month's lineup once the leaks and rumours begin to fly in a few weeks.
