For those that have been wanting to play Mafia III, next week is your chance to play it for free. Sony finally unveiled this month’s list of free PlayStation Plus games. Lots of fans, including myself, were speculating as to what August’s list of games might entail. Although we probably had some unreasonably high hopes, this month ended up having one huge AAA title, Mafia III.
For those that have never played these games, the Mafia series tends to feel a lot like GTA. Players are free to commit crime sprees and explore the city in their stolen cars. With that being said, there also is an extremely strong story that centers on individuals in the mafia/mobster world. I personally loved the second entry, and I have been meaning to play the third for a while. This latest entry focuses on Lincoln Clay, a former member of the “black mob” who seeks revenge against the Italian mafia. The game takes place in a fictionalized version of New Orleans.
Of course, there are other games on the PlayStation Plus list as well. The full list of August’s free games can be seen below.
- Mafia III
- Dead by Daylight
- Bound by Flame
- Serious Sam 3: BFE
- Draw Slasher
- Space Hulk
- Here They Lie
PlayStation 4/Mobile Devices:
- Knowledge is Power
Overall, I am not too familiar with most of these titles. The only one on this list that I have tried is Here They Lie. When the game was first released, it seemed like an interesting concept, especially for being a VR horror game. However, I was not able to finish it, as it is was extremely disorienting. Because of the first-person controls and the dysmorphic landscapes, it was extremely hard for me to play without experiencing nausea. While the game might otherwise be great, I cannot give an honest opinion of this one’s content as a result.
Still, if any of these games catch your interest in the slightest, you should definitely take advantage of your PlayStation Plus subscription and download them. All of the downloads, including Mafia III, will be available on August 7, 2018, on the PlayStation Store.
