A wealth of new titles are available from the Playstation Plus Game Catalog on August 16. Extra and Premium members can play not one, not two, but three Yakuza titles.
Plus, according to a Playstation.blog post, more entries from the series are due to be announced later in the year. Let’s break down the titles up for grabs. We begin with Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, and Yakuza Kiwami 2.
As the game’s lead protagonist, Kazuma Kiryu, players can journey into the “glitz, glamour, and unbridled decadence of the 80s” of Yakuza 0. Kiryu “finds himself in a world of trouble when a simple debt collection goes wrong. Then, step into the silver-toed shoes of Goro Majima and explore his “normal” life as the proprietor of a cabaret club.” the game’s description reads.
Next is the PS4 remake of Yakuza Kiwami – released on the PS2 in 2005. Kazuma Kiryu “returns to the streets of Japan after serving a decade-long prison sentence for a crime he didn’t commit to save his best friend.”
Thirdly – is Yakuza Kiwami 2, which features Goro Majima in an adventure set before the events of the main game – in which “an assassination pulls Kazuma Kiryu out of a peaceful life to broker peace between rival clans and face off against Ryuji Goda, known as the Dragon of Kansai.”
From gangsters to a multiplayer game that draws inspiration from the darkest corners of horror is Dead By Daylight. The 1v4 multiplayer title enables players to play as either an unstoppable killer – or one of four survivors seeking to evade the killer. On the lighter side of things – there’s Bugsnax, and play as “an investigative journalist who has set out to explore Snaktooth Island, home to legendary half-bug half-snack creatures, Bugsnax.”
Last – but not least – is Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands – deemed as “the ultimate military shooter experience set in a massive, dangerous, and responsive open world.”
Other titles available from August 16 include Metro Exodus, Trials of Mana, UNO, Monopoly Madness, and Monopoly Plus.
