    Yakuza: Like a Dragon

    Yakuza: Like a Dragon is the eighth main installment in the Yakuza series. However, there are some significant differences between this game and its predecessors. To start, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is the first Yakuza game to not feature Kazuma Kiryu as a playable character. Instead, this game follows the story of Ichiban Kasuga. Additionally, Like a Dragon is the first in the series to be a turn-based RPG rather than a real-time beat ‘em up game like all the ones that came before it.

    Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 Cross-Gen Deluxe Bundle

    Character in a skate park at dusk.

    There are many who remember Tony Hawk Pro Skater as the most iconic skating games out there. This will be a great opportunity either to take a trip down memory lane or see what all the hype is about. With the games fully remastered, you can check out all the moves and tricks like never before. You can even compete against players around the world to find out who’s the best skater.

    Little Nightmares

    Little Nightmares is a cute but eerie platforming game. In it, you play as Six, a little girl who is trying to escape The Maw – a mysterious vessel inhabited by corrupted souls. You must run, hide, and pray that you aren’t discovered as you try to escape. Throughout the game, you will uncover secrets that add to the story.

    Games Leaving in August

    PlayStation has also given us a reminder to add Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, Man of Medan, and Arcadegeddon into our libraries. These games will no longer be available on PlayStation Plus starting on August 2.
