August’s batch of free games via the PlayStation Plus is no longer delayed as in previous months. PlayStation finally announced the PS Plus August 2015 lineup with a day to spare in July.
For August, PS4 fans can enjoy some treasure-hunting with Lara Croft in “Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris.” There are several appealing points for “Temple of Osiris,” among which are the cleverly crafted puzzles, challenging environments and co-op play, as announced via the PlayStation Blog.
PS4 players are also getting “Limbo” from developer Playdead. This is a former Xbox exclusive that saw its PS4 edition release in February. While this is another game involving puzzles, “Limbo” has garnered several awards for its haunting visuals and artsy depiction of the character’s numerous deaths.
August also holds two cross-buy titles across the three PlayStation platforms, adding to the possible playable titles on the PS4. These include science-based title "Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones” and the more musically inclined “Sound Shapes.”
“God of War: Ascension” is also coming to the PS4, which is a good complementary game to the recently released “God of War 3: Remastered.” Finally, a cross-buy for the PS3 and PS Vita, “CastleStorm,” rounds up the free games for August.
Currently, the PS4 is being sold in different bundles to appeal to more players who have yet to get their next-gen consoles. It was previously reported that a refurbished Supercharged PS4 is currently available at GameStop. This particular console features a modified PS4 that will carry a 2TB hard drive to provide more space for games.
While this is pretty much the most space-friendly PS4 to date, it is not the only refurbished model that fans can get their hands on. There’s also another refurbished PS4 with a 500GB hard drive priced at $359.99 that’s also sold at GameStop, Polygon reports.
However, this is far from the 1T Ultimate Player Edition of the PS4 that’s now out in Europe. Unfortunately for Americans, it was confirmed that there are no plans for a similar release in North America at the moment.
