This month’s PS+ freebies aren’t brand new, but they’re all recent games and good to great with Tony Hawk, the latest Yakuza, and Little Nightmares.
A lot has been made of the shift from PS+ being a general subscription, to a tiered system. And yes, there are some big changes there, that do impact subscribers across the boards.
But be that as it may, the base level of Plus is still something worth your time, even if you’re not into multiplayer gaming. Take this month for example, as it’s pretty well stacked with a trio of good to great titles.
Leading off is Activision’s excellent Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 remake from a few summers ago. This awesome floor-up recreation of the original titles brought back more than good memories when it arrived back in 2020, as it plays flawlessly, and is loaded with stuff to do. Nostalgia? Yes, but it’s got more than enough to shake off the ‘retro’ tag.

From there, things get a little scary with Little Nightmares. While it would have been nice to get the game’s sequel, which is way more current launching last year, 2017’s creepfest is still worth your time if you’ve yet to play.

And now for something completely different! Yakuza: Like a Dragon rounds out the month’s offerings, and brings the most recent of the sometimes-silly, crime-fueled, open-world titles to Plus subscribers.
