August Free Game for PSPlus and Games With Gold include Metro, Metal Gear and God of War


It’s time to clear some room from your hard drive as the PSPlus and Games With Gold free game collections will be getting an update, and this month is probably the best yet as it features heavy hitters across both platforms.


Starting with the Xbox One, as part of the new upgraded Games with Gold started last month, Gold subscribers will be able to grab two games for the console. From Aug 1st-30th, you’ll be able to grab the prologue to Hideo Kojima’s last entry in the Metal Gear franchise, “Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.” Joining it on Aug 15th – Sept 15th is the top down zombie shooter “How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition.”


Xbox 360 Gold will be in for a treat this month as they’ll get access to both games in 4A Games/Deep Silver’s Metro series. Metro 2033 will be available from Aug 1st – 15th, giving you enough time to prep for it’s even better sequel, Metro: Last Light, which will be available between Aug 16th – 30th.


Playstation Plus subscribers will be getting 4 games for the PS4 this month. Starting with Crystal Dynamic’s Tomb Raider spin-off sequel, “Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris,” a top down action shooter which features 4-player co-op. Next is PlayDead’s amazing minimalist platformer “LIMBO,” where you play a small boy searching though Limbo to find the fate of your sister.


Several titles will be available for cross-buy, including¬†Queasy Games’ “Sound Shapes” and Curve Digital’s “Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones.” These titles will be available for 3-way cross-buy with PS4, PS3 and Vita. Also joining the cross-buy titles is Zen Studio’s “Castlestorm,” which will be available PS3 and Vita.


Finally the big lone PS3 exclusive title will be Sony Santa Monica’s “God of War: Ascension.” A game that while not as good as it’s predecessors, still holds up with the series brutality and great gameplay, also features a surprising good multiplayer mode.
