PlayStation has some awesome games on offer for free in the month of August for anybody signed up for PlayStation Plus.
Starting August 4 2020, PlayStation Plus users will be able to pick up Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered and Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout for free. These are two relatively new games, and a terrific free combo for PlayStation Plus. Users will be able to download Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered from July 28 to August 31, and Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout will be available for download on August 4.
Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered was released on the 31st of March for PlayStation 4 users, and was later released on other platforms on the 30th of April. It’s one of the newer games to make it to PlayStation Plus, whereas Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout is yet to be released, with it being in early access on PC.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is a remaster of the massively acclaimed 2009 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and is a total remastering of the games campaign. Fall Guys Total Knockout on the other hand is new, light-hearted indie game, involving overcoming obstacles and traps in a 60-player multiplayer arena.
How can I get these games?
You can get these games between August 4 and August 31 by downloading them from the PlayStation Store – this is the shop you download games from on your PlayStation console. You’ll need a PlayStation Plus subscription to download these titles, which you can pick up for $11.95 for one month, $33.95 for three months and $79.95 for 12 months.
If your subscription runs out, these games will no longer be available – but as long as your PlayStation Plus subscription is active, you’ll have access to any PlayStation Plus free game.
Another big thing that you’ll need is a reliable internet connection. Although the PlayStation file size for Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout hasn’t been revealed yet (though Steam says a minimum of 2GB is required), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is 48.48GB in file size. So you’ll need to make sure you internet speed is up to scratch!
