Not to be outdone by Microsoft’s increasingly attractive Games with Gold program, Sony has announced the August lineup of the Instant Game Collection for PlayStation Plus subscribers on the PlayStation Blog. This month, PS4 owners will be treated to the brand new downloadable title Road Not Taken for free on the day it releases. Road Not Taken is a roguelike puzzle game from Spry Fox, the creator of Triple Town, and will be available on the PlayStation Store on August 5th.

Fez will also go free on the PS4 for the month of August, a game that I loved to no end when it originally released in 2012. Fez is a cross-buy game as well, so if you’d rather play on your PS3, PS Vita or all three, you’re in luck.

The PS3 exclusive title of the month is Crysis 3, an FPS from early last year which received favorable review from most outlets. If nothing else, it’s one of the best looking shooters on the last-gen console.

As for PS3 and PS Vita cross-buy titles, both Proteus and Dragon’s Crown will be free to download next month. If you’re looking for a fast-paced brawler with incredible visuals, you need to check out Dragon’s Crown. If you’re looking for a gorgeous, relaxed game about exploration and immersion, you really need to check out Proteus.

And finally, another day-and-date release, Metrico will be coming exclusively to the PS Vita on August 5th — free for PS Plus members. Metrico is kind of hard to explain, so just watch the video below to get a primer on it and all the other free games coming to PlayStation consoles this month.
