PS Plus August 2020 Release Date: Confirmed Reveal Date, July Line Up, Reddit, Cheap Deals & More

Last month’s PS Plus campaign was certainly a memorable one. It marked the service’s 10 year anniversary, and what better way to celebrate than with an extra free game for the month.

Do we expect another trio of games? Well…no. But we’re hoping Sony surprises us nonetheless.

For all the details on the expected reveal and release date of PS Plus August, continue reading below.

Reveal Date

Traditionally we see the full PS Plus line up revealed on the last Wednesday of the month.

CAUGHT OUT: Last month, we couldn’t work out if it would be the same old story, or something different for the platform’s anniversary.

While last month was a bit of an anomaly in how the days lined up, we’re expecting business as usual for August.

WE’RE POSITIVE: This month, we’re expecting the usual reveal pattern to take over

We’re only anticipating two titles for next month, but again – Sony may have an extra game up their sleeve!


At this point, it’s a tough one to say. We do know that usually we see a bit of a blockbuster paired with a more indie title.

INDIE: One the titles is a genuinely unique gameplay experience

The most recent release included an amazing adventure, intense basketball, and a weird and wonderful tale!

It’s a tough act to follow indeed! So what could we get?

Some signs are pointing to God of War, as it has been discounted in the past and even included in some PS4 bundle deals. Perhaps this would be a good time to remind people why it was made Game of the Year 2018?

Or could we see Watch Dogs 2 come back into the mix? Especially with Watch Dogs Legion going down pretty well after Ubisoft Forward, and the latest Inside Xbox.


Erica was one of the three games provided in the last PS Plus line up, and some Reddit users have found that the game took surprisingly little time to finish.

SHORTER THAN EXPECTED: You can fly through Erica in an insanely short amount of time, according to this user

That said, the gamer took a ‘risk-free’ route to finish the game so quickly.

Erica is a feature-length cinematic experience which merges high-fidelity Hollywood production values with engaging, tactile gameplay.

For the best experience with this game, you’ll need to go for some of the riskier choices in order to explore other paths.

10 Year Anniversary Line Up

Rather than the usual two, PS Plus this July have access to three PS4 games this month – and you still have plenty of time to claim them!

THE OFF-SEASON: Will the extended rest period affect the standard of the NBA when it returns?

To celebrate 10 years of PS Plus, Sony really pulled through with three incredibly strong titles from vastly different genres.
