PlayStation Plus August - Just Cause 3 / Assassin's Creed: Freedom Cry - Now live

203
Found 26th Jul 2017
As per usual, our PS4 games are joined by four other titles on PS Plus this August. Your full line up looks like this:

Just Cause 3 (PS4)
Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry (PS4)
That’s You – PS4 (bonus title)
Super Motherload (PS3)
Snake Ball (PS3)
Downwell (PS Vita)
Level 22 (PS Vita)

Just Cause 3
If last month’s slightly more slow-burning mood left you hankering for something a bit more bonkers then look no further. An over-the-top cavalcade of pure, destructive chaos, Just Cause 3 delivers an open-world third-person romp with all the catharsis and tongue-in-cheek dialogue of a classic ’80s action movie.

As Rico Rodriguez, it’ll be up to you to sire political change in your troubled homeland of Medici through a thoughtful application of rocket launchers, wingsuits, grappling hooks and high explosives. Revolution is never easy, but as the old saying goes: if at first you don’t succeed, tie two helicopter gunships together with a grappling hook, cover them in C4 and smash them into an oil refinery… (you can actually do this).

Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry
If, on the other hand, you’re hankering after something a bit more stealthy – and have a soft spot for the high seas – then the mast-straddling, throat-slitting adventures of Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry could be just the very thing.

Set several decades after the piratical exploits of young Edward Kenway, this standalone expansion to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag places you into the boots of shipwrecked sailor and Brotherhood assassin Adéwalé as he goes head to head with a cadre of French slavers. Expect death-defying acrobatics, copious bloodletting and a few pesky Templars trying to do something dastardly.

As per usual, our PS4 games are joined by four other titles on PS Plus this August. Your full line up looks like this:


These titles will be available to download from 1st August, meaning you’ve another few days to download July’s titles:

I'm sick and tired of Sony, every month is indie games and/or games I've never heard of!

Not subbing anymore until Sony sort it out - Gonna post it in every thread until they do


Wait, it's a decent month - Put your keyboards away


PS - I'm a PS Plus user/subscriber/owner

This would've been funny if you posted it three months ago.
Just Cause 3 a terrible game that runs like crap!... It baffles me that a game like that is allowed on plus. Rest are just naff... Cold what a terrible month.

That seems pretty decent to me.
Not bad...guess enough didn't download That's you lol.
Second month in a row of good titles!!
This will surely not last
Just Cause 3 is pretty fair, I still think it has serious performance issues, but it is a AAA only about 18 months old, so it's a decent offering. Freedom Cry is a bit sly though, as it's basically a short expansion to AC Black Flag.
@BuzzDuraband : Damn, you're fast. Take pleasure in removing my post.

Solid month again though I got JC3 almost a year or so ago for £1.51. :P

It's actually a free title until October this year. It's pretty boring though and hardly worth the hassle in downloading the app to seperate devices per player.
Was just about to bite on JC3 on Steam. I'll happily take it on PS4 instead.

Everything else is a bonus for me.
JC3!!! Incredible!! HEAT

Very nice selection! I do already own Just Cause 3, but will enjoy having Freedom Cry - and I probably ought to be giving Downwell a try at some point.

It was always planned to be available for several months.
Anyone played JC3 on the PS4 and can tell us how bad the performance really is
Another quality month, heat op

Its not as bad as everyone makes it out to be, some of the loading screens can be horrendous. But hey it's a free game

Very bad but playable to some extent. Avoid too many explosions and it won't be so bad but that's defeating the point of JC3.

Downwell for the Vita, a decent game for the device at last
Worst thing by a mile on Just Cause 3 are the motorcycle physics.

Atrocious
They seem to be listening to the community on sucky games, recently it's been much better with PS+ games.

Thanks Buzz
Excellent, Glad I never bought it! JC3 should run better on My PS4 Pro as well from what I've heard. Great month for PS+
@hass123 Big off-topic spoiler for those that didn't watch it yet...

Not bad. Not bad at all.
Jealous again this month

Coming from an xbox one user
Superb month. Been wanting to play Jc3 bu was put off by bad reviews.
I hope with all this new attention on JC3 the developers bring out some sort of performance fix. I would take a much lowered resolution if it meant you could actually play the game properly. The frame rate is distractingly bad.
Just Cause 3 a terrible game that runs like crap!... It baffles me that a game like that is allowed on plus. Rest are just naff... Cold what a terrible month.

Had just cause 3 since launch and even got the dlc pack but never played it , will give freedom cry a go since I've played Black Flag
Wow, excellent month. Only own one of those, Downwell on Vita which incidentally is an incredible game and plays super well on the Vita. Possibly my proudest platinum.
I was thinking of buying jc3 but its better free
Another awful part of Just Cause 3 is the constant, never ending repetitive need to liberate towns.

It will sap the life out of you.
Whats assassins creed freedom cry, is it black flag?
And now the ps3 is given a load of guff. People do still play it.
Hmmm. Nothing overly exciting for me. Downwell is finally an okay game for Vita and I already own that

Standalone DLC for Black Flag, just noticed it has no platinum. Boo.

No it was DLC for Black Flag but was also released as a standalone title.

I won't be downloading it but people can't complain now when there's a triple A title in the headline (I prefer quality indie titles anyway).
Sweet. I had Black Flag on Xbox 360, with Freedom Cry, and recently re-bought it for PS4. This'll save me having to get the Freedom Cry DLC.

Doesn't deserve to be called a AAA game IMO. It is easily the worst game I've played on PS4, I just found it to be unplayable. People that say the game isn't as bad as others say are just delusional.

I downloaded the ultimate edition (I think it's called?) in the sales last year and I have to say I've never had a single performance issue It may make a difference having a physical copy as opposed to the digital copy (this will be a digital download), I hadn't even heard of any performance issues until reading this thread

*Should have mentioned I have the original fat PS4 to boot, maybe I just got lucky?
