Mafia III Headlines PlayStation Plus Titles for August 2018

By Sam Quirke, 1 year ago
It's already August, so it's about time that we found out what our PS Plus free games will be for the month — it's a whopper, with four games on the current gen console including Mafia III. These games should become available next week on the 7th.

PlayStation 4



PlayStation 3

PlayStation Vita

Of course, all of this means you need to get a move on if you want to pick up July's games for free — the switch over will be on August 7th. Log on and grab these as soon as possible!

Mafia III is alright. Wish it had a fast travel system. Too many missions require you to drive back and forth quite a large map, and it gets tiring after a short while.

Good game. Good breath of fresh air from story driven RPG's.

I'd be wanting to play Mafia III for a while, so at first I thought this was great news. But on reflection, it will still be cheaper to buy the Deluxe Edition containing all the DLC, than download the base game with PS+, and buying the DLC separately.

Which is a bit of a shame, but still good news for people who aren't going to care for the DLC or full completion. The other games aren't too bad either, though not really my cup of tea.

Yes. It has a trophy list for the PS4, and one for the PS3 version.

Funfact, if you use the search bar in the top right corner and type the name of the game in, it shows you all available versions. i.e it says Bound By Flame and Bound By Flame (PS3). The first one being ps4, the second being ps3.

Pretty happy with this month's selection. I've been wanting to play DBD with friends for a while now.

Good line up! Too bad I got Mafia 3 deluxe edition just last month and playing it currently. Rest assured the glitches are gone and no issues with the trophies

The sound track in Mafia 3 is worthy of a play.

Possibly the worst month ever for me personally, don't think there's ever been one when I haven't been interested in any of them before.

Still, gotta have the odd bad one, I suppose.

meh, nothing interesting for me this month. I would've picked up Bound by Flame had I not already own it on PS4.

Mafia 3 I played, I do not care about other games.
Not a good offer for me.

Not what I was asking I know they both have trophies

I meant are they the same list i.e. can you get all the trophies on both or is it one list for both versions

Yeah, they're seperate. You can get all trophies on the PS3 one, then you can also get all trophies on the PS4 one.

This would have been an alright month had I not bought Mafia III a couple months back, and also had my partner not also bought Knowledge Is Power around the same time.

Does Here They Lie require VR or can it be played with no extra equipment? I thought it can be but I may have that wrong...

As for the PS3 and Vita games, huge disappointment for me this month (mainly Vita). Have been really hoping to fill in some gaps in my collection or get some games that I'm not really wanting to spend money on if possible before they start giving only PS4 games.
Oh well, never mind, I'll look ahead to next month's offerings then.
Hope for the best but expect the worst.

They added a free update like a year or so ago to make it support non-vr use.

I already own and played some of MAFIA III-the other titles I have no interest in playing or checking out for free. I was very satisfied with BEYOND TWO SOULS & HEAVY RAIN given to us for FREE in the last couple of months.
