Sony has announced that it’s bringing eight video games from the (mostly) beloved Yakuza collection to PlayStation Plus all through the remainder of the yr, with the primary hitting the service in August. Be warned, although — for those who’re subscribed to the bottom PlayStation Plus Essential tier, you’ll solely get one of many video games.
The complete factor is kicking off with Yakuza: Like a Dragon (a great place to start for these new to the collection), which will probably be one of many PlayStation Plus month-to-month video games for August. That implies that you’ll be capable of declare it with any PS Plus subscription — regardless of which tier you pay for. The different month-to-month video games are some heavy hitters, too. There’s Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and a couple of, which my colleague Andrew Webster mentioned “might just be the perfect video game remaster,” and Little Nightmares, a horror sport within the vein of Limbo. Sony’s also offering a PlayStation Plus low cost on Rollerdrome, releasing August sixteenth, which is described as an “intense shooter-skater hybrid set in an evocative retrofuture.”

Extra and Premium subscribers can even be gaining access to Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, and Yakuza Kiwami 2 in August, because the video games are coming to the Game Catalog. Sony says that the remasters of Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 together with Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will probably be out there to Extra and Premium subscribers “later this year.”
In some methods, this transfer was nearly important for Sony — the Yakuza collection began out on PlayStation consoles, however for the previous few years, the easiest way to play it has arguably been on Xbox Game Pass or the excellent PC ports. Now that Sony has reconfigured PlayStation Plus to be extra aggressive with Microsoft’s service, folks with PS4s and PS5s (and an Extra or Premium subscription) can even be capable of simply sit down and decide up the collection.
