When Do the PS Plus August 2021 Games Release?

PlayStation seem to be the best in the market for monthly free games. Where they provide reasonably recent games in their service, Xbox's Games With Gold has been falling behind. PlayStation clearly have more investment in their PS Plus games and they have to keep this up, month to month.

Last month was a decent, but underwhelming display. Maybe this month, they can put themselves back on top again. Here's when you can expect to see the PS Plus August 2021 announcement and what we know so far.

PS Plus August 2021 Games Reveal Date

Generally, we tend to see the announcement on the same day each month, the last Wednesday.

This means that, if Sony follows the same formula, we can expect to see the game's announcement on Wednesday, July 28th, mere weeks from now.

When Will The Games Release?

Just like the announcement, the release of each month's games happen on certain days. That day tends to be the first Tuesday of every month.

One Game Has Already Been Announced

Luckily, at July's State of Play, one game was already announced as part of the PS Plus lineup. That game was Hunter's Arena, a melee battle royal game already out in early access on Steam.


With a mixed to mostly positive response, it is clear the game has a lot of potential. Taking players and placing them in a 30 player arena, it combines PvP and PvE elements in a similar way to the likes of League of Legends.

You can take on AI enemies to get better loot and use that loot to take on real players. We don't know how it will perform on PlayStation just yet but we only have to wait a few weeks to find out. This is your first game.
