Sony’s new tiered PlayStation Plus memberships might be confusing, but the good news is that every tier still gets free games every month. The even better news is that those games continue to be high-quality. In August 2022, PS Plus members get Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, and Little Nightmares on PS4.
There are PS5 versions of Yakuza and Tony Hawk as well. If you own a next-gen console, you can pick which version of the games you want to download.
In order to download free PS4 and PS5 games every month, you’ll need a subscription to at least the PlayStation Plus Essential plan. PS Plus Essential costs $9.99 a month, PS Plus Extra costs $14.99 a month, and PS Plus Premium costs $17.99 a month.
