PlayStation Plus, August 2021

PlayStation Plus sees the arrival in August 2021 of three new games for PS5 and PS4 which, as per tradition, subscribers to the service will be able to download for free, ie at no additional cost.

This is Plants Vs. Zombies : The Battle of Neighborville, the latest episode of the competitive shooter produced by Electronic Arts and based on the PopCap Games series; Hunter's Arena: Legends, a fascinating battle royale for thirty players already available on PC, and finally Tennis World Tour 2, the sportsman from Big Ant Studios.

Was the selection appreciated by the readers of Again no: according to our survey, as many as 65% of users said they were not at all satisfied with the August games and 19% unsatisfied, for a total of 84% negative impressions.

Plants Vs. Zombies: The Battle of Neighborville

Plants Vs. Zombies: The Battle of Neighborville, some of the funny characters in the game. Last episode of the series produced by Electronic Arts, Plants Vs. Zombies: The Battle of Neighborville involves us in a new clash between the funny characters created by PopCap Games, Plants on one side and Zombies on the other, who will battle in the context of matches open to a maximum of twenty-four participants in the background of Neighborville.

With twenty different classes available and many options for customizing the fighters, we will be able to try our hand at solid and fun gameplay, which enriches the mechanics appreciated in the previous chapter offering us a structure consisting of six competitive modes and a cooperative for four players.

To find out more, take a look at our review of Plants Vs. Zombies: The Battle of Neighborville.

Hunter's Arena: Legends

Mantisco's interesting battle royale, Hunter's Arena: Legends, makes its debut on PlayStation 5 directly in the PlayStation Plus line-up, catapulting us into a scenario inspired by ancient Asia in which hordes of demons have invaded the territory and are faced by the Hunters, brave and skilled fighters expert in martial arts and in the use of weapons.

Selected our character among seventeen different classes, in the game we will have to explore dangerous dungeons in search of enemies and eliminate them to level up by fighting at close range, using the scenery to gain advantages or shelter from the attack of our opponents, and protecting teammates in the Trio mode.

Tennis World Tour 2

Tennis World Tour 2, a moment of the match. A few weeks after the Wimbledon final, which saw us close to the feat with Matteo Berrettini, Tennis World Tour 2 aims to revive the videogame enthusiasm around tennis with the latest edition of the series produced by Nacon and developed in this case by the authors of AO Tennis 2, Big Ant Studios. A rich and compelling title, as we wrote in the Tennis World Tour 2 review.

Featuring a long career mode, tournaments and training sessions, as well as an online competitive sector, the game boasts thirty-eight athletes real life, substantially improved animations compared to the previous episode, a more refined and multifaceted gameplay and a card system that adds further depth to the experience.

New PlayStation Plus Free Games for August Now Available

The new PlayStation Plus free games have officially rotated in, and subscribers to the service can now claim Hunter's Arena: Legends, Tennis World Tour 2, and Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville for themselves. It is worth noting that Hunter's Arena: Legends is for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 while Tennis World Tour 2 and Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville are only for PlayStation 4. Additionally, Hunter's Arena: Legends is a new title whereas both Tennis World Tour 2 and Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville were released previously.

As always, there are some caveats to PlayStation Plus free games. First off, they are only available to claim by subscribers, and even then only for a limited time. Once claimed, they will remain in players' libraries so long as they remain subscribed to PlayStation Plus. If that subscription lapses, the games will become unavailable until the subscription is reinstated.

'The 30 player PvP & PvE combat-based battle royale is set in an ancient age in which humanity battles each other as well as a growing legion of demons that have been unleashed upon the world,' the description of Hunter's Arena: Legends from the original announcement of August's free PlayStation Plus video games reads. 'In this vicious frontier, you’ll face threats on two fronts. Head into high-risk, high-reward dungeons to encounter demonic foes. Dangerous but necessary for your continued survival: you’ll earn powerful items and experience points. Powering yourself up will give you a much-needed edge on the battlefield when you face off against your Hunter brethren.'

As noted above, August 2021's free PlayStation Plus titles, Hunter's Arena: Legends, Tennis World Tour 2, and Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, are now available and will be able to be claimed by PlayStation Plus subscribers through Monday, September 6th. Given that the August titles only just now became available, there is no telling what PlayStation Plus might include in September, but it is perhaps worth noting that Sonic Colors: Ultimate is set to launch on September 7th. And also, it almost has to be better than August's lineup. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the PlayStation Plus subscription service right here.
