August is looking like a good month for PlayStation Plus subscribers on PS4. Sony has announced that WipEout Omega Collection and Sniper Elite 4 will be free to download. Both titles will become available when the PlayStation Store updates on August 6th.
Developed by XDev, Clever Beans and EPOS Game Studios, WipEout Omega Collection alone is worth looking into. It’s a remaster of Wipeout HD, Wipeout HD Fury and Wipeout 2048, packing tons of tracks and ships into one single package. If you favour high speed, futuristic racing, this might be the game for you.
Rebellion’s Sniper Elite 4 is another strong addition to one’s PS4 library. It still carries the series’ penchant for long-range sniping and stealth but now includes more open-ended gameplay and larger maps. Movement has been revamped to encourage more verticality and there are even night missions to play.
Sony faced quite a bit of flak when it announced Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 for last month’s PlayStation Plus free games. So much so that it eventually replaced this with Detroit: Become Human Digital Deluxe Edition. We’ll see how the response is to this month’s offerings in the coming days.
