PlayStation Plus games for August: Hunter’s Arena: Legends, Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, Tennis World Tour 2

All available to play starting Tuesday, August 3.

August’s PlayStation Plus lineup challenges you to test your mettle against dangerous demons, the combative undead, aggressive fauna and racket-wielding pros. Enjoy the fantasy warfare of Hunter’s Arena: Legends, teamwork hijinks in Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville and hit the court in Tennis World Tour 2 on Tuesday, August 3 when the titles join PlayStation Plus.

Let’s take a closer look at all three.

Hunter’s Arena: Legends | PS4, PS5

As announced during  State of Play earlier this month, Hunter’s Arena is coming to PlayStation Plus for both PS4 and PS5. The 30 player PvP & PvE combat-based battle royale* is set in an ancient age in which humanity battles each other as well as a growing legion of demons that have been unleashed upon the world. In this vicious frontier, you’ll face threats on two fronts. Head into high-risk, high-reward dungeons to encounter demonic foes. Dangerous but necessary for your continued survival: you’ll earn powerful items and experience points. Powering yourself up will give you a much-needed edge on the battlefield when you face off against your Hunter brethren.

Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville | PS4

EA’s off-the-wall team shooter returns. Ready your peashooters for the next over-the-top instalment in the Plants vs. Zombies franchise as the tension expands beyond Neighborville into new social and free-roam regions on the outer reaches of gaming’s most contested township. Choose one of 20 fully-customizable character classes, and perfect your play-style as you earn new rewards for each victory on the battlefield. Team up with friends, either on couch co-op or online*, and take on a cavalcade of new challenges, tackling enemy hordes in PvE, going up against others online, or braving all-out mayhem in the new Battle Arena.

  • Good think i got red dead redemption 1 to play plus wwe svr 2010 and red dead revolver. Because my buddies and i are not playing this boring stuff.

  • Control and Wreck fest alone were worth the price of the annual subscription this year. Not to mention Squadrons Black ops 4 and Final Fantasy. Battle for Neighborville is hardly “junk or garbage”. I’ve put more hours into that game than I care to mention. I haven’t tried the other 2 games but since they are part of the collection this month I will keep and open mind and give them a try. Give these games a try for yourselves. Maybe you will discover something you really enjoy.

  • Disappointed…
    If I’m paying for the PS+ subscription I expect better games!

    • You are paying for online access. The free games are a bonus. If you don’t like them, don’t add them to your library.

    • kushtilmymindgon

      Yes we ask for better games yet other players tell us we’re being greedy as if this is a free thing and we’re not paying a monthly subscription, I would suggest cancelling your PlayStation plus and get PlayStation now. I haven’t liked a game since control and Tomb raider

  • Disappointed..
    If I’m paying for the PS+ subscription I expect better games!

  • This is horrendous. Yet another month when I won’t even be adding any of these games to my library.

    PS Plus is the biggest racket going. Just because I enjoy playing a bit of coop in a couple of games I’m obliged to pay for this service.

    I could maybe forgive that if the games we got were reasonable but we get month after month of this kind of selection.

    • No sorry month after month is not as poor as this. FF7 Remake, Control, Oddworld, Days Gone, Zombie Army 4, Black Ops 4, Star Wars Squadrons, Maneater, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Concrete Genie, Greedfall etc and that’s just games we’ve gotten this year. All of those are great games. Don’t act like every month is poor.

    • @Mercenary09 – BO 4 great game?…lol what kind of reality are you living in?

      @Karamu76 – You said it yourself,you pay to play co-op…the games you get are your bonus so why complain if you’re getting what you’re paying for?

    • I strongly agree with you @Mercenary09, @Welmosca bo4 has 103 trophies its a lot fun friend! At least for that. It has more fun than a lot games..

  • @ Farnsii – Wow just wow just when you think people can’t
    surprise you anymore you see this hahaha.

  • Heh not even for “future” claim when i’ll get hands on ps5. 2023 will be the sweet spot after omega covid variant. Keep it up sony. Don’t forget to raise price for such awesome service.

  • Another trash month again who agree

    • kushtilmymindgon

      I agree, all I want is a non War game and non Multiplayer, like a true stand alone game. Only ones I’ve liked is control and tomb raider. Such a waste of money especially since I’m tied in for another 5 months ughh 😞

  • Like are y’all even trying like for real

  • My only regret is that I bought those discounted 1-year cards. Ps plus is garbage.

  • PvZ being the best game on the list is a HUGE indictment against Playstation. Fire everyone, try again next month.

  • I think I’ll pass

  • Terrible month, definitely the worst since Farming Simulator and Cities Skylines!!

    This year started off so well but the games have been on a steady decline for these last 3 months. Almost all games after the month we got Oddworld Soulstorm have been laughable. VF5US and WWE 2KB didn’t even have platinum trophies for being such new games! The ONLY good game we’ve got since then was A Plague Tale and even that wasn’t for PS4!

    This month we get a PvZ game which is already on EA Play, Hunter’s is just another battle royale game whose playerbase is already dwindling on PC after releasing just 1 year ago and I don’t why, even after the entire playerbase has made it abundantly clear that we do not want sports games in our PS+ lineup, we are getting a goddamn Tennis game??

    I hones

    CHANGE ONE OF THE PS4 GAMES FFS.

  • Sony will NEVER be able to please everyone at any given time. Some games we love others we hate but for every game out there someone will either love it or hate it. It’s all relevant to the individual.

    My opinion is it’s a weak month but I’m still very grateful and hold high hopes for next month.

    Thanks Sony keep up the great work

  • Yep, another useless offering, here’s hoping for September.

  • At this point sell all you stand for to xjack or fps ah ah ah ( Xbox and pc )

  • Nothing for me…. Not worried about it. I would like a Flash Sale to come rolling through at some point though!

    • kushtilmymindgon

      Me too, really want to pick up some titles like BioMutant, Scarlet Nexus, SM Miles Morales, I see Miles in the sale but not enough of a sale will wait for 50% since taxes have been added.

  • Nothing would have been a better alternative to this selection…

  • I’m going to go ahead and give Hunter’s Arena a shot. And not complain.

    • kushtilmymindgon

      So you’re going to give it a shot and if you don’t like it you’re not going to complain???? Uh huh
      Feedback is necessary

  • I don’t know anything about Hunter’s Arena but the newest PvZ is a step backwards from the first 2. They focused on getting newer players verses making a game for their current fans. Instead of making GW3 they made a spin-off of a spin-off. Once again, I don’t know anything about Hunter’s Arena, but Battle for Neighborville makes this 2 mediocre shooters in as many months.

  • I have to say PlayStation the past 3 months these were your worst picks ever, geez
    Why can’t u just throw something worth the time, I’m truly disappointed.

  • Bye then.

  • Doing away with access to their multiplayer network for F2P games is not going subscription free at all.

  • Best month ever. Wow according to PSN Profiles Tennis World Tour 2 has 390 game owners and 5 recent players. No explanation needed here.

  • As much as I’d like to be an advocate for this month I just can’t. I understand that there is diversity in this month’s line up but really the problem is that these are all niche games. They don’t really have mass appeal which should be considered when selecting PS Plus games. I love Japanese games but I rarely see any on the service so a tennis game is a major slap to the face.

    It’s hard to supplement my library with these games, the only one I am considering is the Hunter’s Arena due to it’s fantasy look but apart from that the game doesn’t align with my interests. Since PS Now has been slow to pick up as a streaming service on the go I’ve taken to the idea of remote playing a PS5 to a phone, laptop and eventually the Steam Deck. PS Plus Collection and monthly Plus games make it easy for me to switch between games remotely as almost all of my games are physical. So bringing quality titles to PS Plus is important to me. Perhaps create a voting system for upcoming month’s PS Plus games with a small selection to chose from would lessen the disappointment.

    Please make PS Now a better service.

  • This maybe a bad month for PS Plus games they selected. At least they give us final fantasy 7 remake, Control, and Virtua Fighter 5 in previous months. I also got backlog games to complete. Hopefully, we get better games for next month.

    • kushtilmymindgon

      I could’ve rented those games for less than a year subscription costs so it’s not worth it

  • yeah these games kind of a lame pick tbh

  • Hyped for Plants Vs Zombies!

  • I’m excited to play Plants Vs Zombies too. I own the first 2.

  • I would so kindly ask to change the games for plus you guys were doing vary well with plus and now pls change all of the games to more double a games

  • I love y’all and have been with you as a plus for many years (and now my partner is too!), but, honestly, can’t you come up with other games?

    I am so tired of these mmo games.

    Keep up the good work though!

    I’ll missed Bethesda games, but there’s no way I’m giving up on the BEST system just ’cause they decided to sell out. :)

  • Alright I’m gonna say it…. Being a playstation plus member for this month sucks… The majority of us don’t play tennis games… Why even included on the list? I think it was a very poor choice for this month to give us a tennis game of everything that could have been given… I mean so many games on the playstation network And they chose a tennis game?
    That’s just extremely disappointing and extremely poor planning by Sony… Xbox has a better selection this month coming up… Come on Sony you can do better than this! They seriously need to Read look at their decision and then pick something different like they did that 1 time… :( It’s pretty simple it’s basically not worth getting ps plus this month…

  • Bro who would want to play tennis a game on ps4 I wish you guys would put good games like the ps3 days but no we get tennis and 2 other okayish games cmon.

  • kushtilmymindgon

    Tennis??? Plants Vs Zombies?? Are you kidding me? I’m officially canceling my plus membership when it runs out and keeping PS Now. And on top of it another game with a battle royale, what is this fortnite? I haven’t played a game I liked since Control and Tomb Raider

  • kushtilmymindgon,
    No, I’m not 6. I just like Plants Vs Zombies.

  • Please change the games

  • Pretty horrible month.

    Hunters Arena is a battle royal type game. Hard pass.

    Tennis. Not interested in it what so ever.

    PvZ is also a battle royal game.

    Also when is psn collection gonna get updated?

  • Comenzó bien el año con buenos juegos, y poco a poco se esta poniendo flojo; el juego de zombis pasable, el de tenis ni para la biblioteca; el juego de hunter Arena no tengo ps5 para no darle el gusto a los que te la quieren vender a $1000.

  • I’ll give plants vs zombies a try with me my wife. Playstation is usually not very family-friendly and my wife is really into Nintendo-like games. Let’s see what this one’s about.

  • The hottest month of the year should have the hottest games they could offer for free….this selection right here is boring. I’m falling asleep just looking at it. Zzzzz

  • Beyond bad. Didn’t think you’d be able to beat the crapshow that was July but you did it. If even a single soul who has any influence over these game picks reads this, please. Give us the random ass indie games again. That was better than this. I’d take a decent indie over bad AAA garbage any day.

    • I don’t even think those PvZ and Tennis games are AA, let alone AAA games. But I agree with you or just give us $20 every month and let us get our own games

  • kushtilmymindgon

    @Death8u4u
    Seriously dude how old are you? I’m 41 and have a family, I’m actually asking your age not calling you a child in his moms basement but seriously why all the trolling and making it seem like everyone’s opinion means nothing and only what you think matters, listen to yourself, you’re making yourself look like a fool. I don’t play online games yet I have a PS+ sub, I get it for those so called “free games” We’re are entitled to our opinions without you telling everyone they’re wrong. Sure some players will like these games but the 90% will not. A subscription to PS+ Doesn’t mean you just want online play that’s why I’m canceling plus and getting PS Now.
    Problem is you think this is our only bills hahaha, no! Netflix is free (no console just an app or website) PlayStation is a $500+ machine you can’t compare the two and I have almost $100 a month on streaming services I don’t need one that sucks so I’m gone after my 5 months are up. You have no feelings towards other players and come up with analogies that make less sense then my 10 yr old son. So please stop replying to others posts, no one here wants to talk to you bro. Good thing for dictation because not worth using my fingers to even type this. ✌️✌️✌️

  • yourtypicalasain

    Bro this is downright depressing. Remember when we got games like battlefield 5 and fallguys (was fun for a month but still.)?

  • kushtilmymindgon

    Me with a PS4 soon to skip off with an Xbox Series X and skip the PS5 as they ignore fans and paying customers. 👋👋👋👋

  • Did anyone else go make popcorn to read some of these people’s comments? This is to funny. Sounds like a bunch of pre pubescent teens Wich to much time on their hands because COVID got them scared. Just enjoy it if you like it and move on if you don’t, it’s that simple guys and girls.

  • @death & @misery love company 😂 wow just go do something else! There’s a whole world out there for your to explore in real life! Don’t forget to wear a mask.

  • Yep. Totally echoing the “meh” here. I will do you one better. Why bother?
    They cannot all be winners, and sure, we are not paying anything more than the PS Plus access fee. But imagine you have just bought your first PlayStation (of any kind) and you want to learn what videogames are all about. Then imagine you can pay money each year or month and get a few freebies each month. Imagine that this, August 2021 (or July 2021 for that matter) are the first games you get through the service.
    How much longer would you keep gaming for, with a first impression like that?
    We have also had some great months. One of them was not even half a year ago, with Final Fantasy VII remake. I am a major not-fan of Days Gone, but I can see how others would be into it. I found Control to be pretty good, contrary to popular opinion. And while Mafia III has more than its share of problems, I enjoyed the hell both out of its gameplay loop and overall story. Shooting molotov cocktails out of the air and burning the throwers to death was no end of fun, too.
    I am sure there are people who will enjoy these games. But they are niche at best, and PVP-focused games, battle royale games, are the pits. I could measure the time that PUBG stayed on my PS4 in minutes.
    There is also a sizeable library of forgotten games that would make great PS Plus games. It is hard to believe that these are the three that Sony thought would appeal to the largest group of players.

  • Come on Sony. These games make me depressed. I pay $60 a year for some good games and to play online but you give me this. It’s just sad

  • EA Games Square Enix Games and Activision Games will always coming for PS PLUS . Ubisoft wont Rockstar Games wont too. Ubi is so selfish company, why they never give us games for ps plus, i dont understand that.
