PS Plus Free Games Predictions For September 2018
As summer comes to an end, we look forward to what possible free games could make the list for Sony’s monthly PS Plus lineup in September. For August, PlayStation owners received Mafia III (a previous prediction of ours) and Dead by Daylight for PS4, Bound by Flame and Serious Sam 3 BFE for PS3, and Draw Slasher and Space Hulk for PS Vita.
Usually there is one larger, AAA title that headlines the list every month, with August’s being Mafia III. For September, we predict Hitman (2016) will be the bigger game included to make players happy for a few reasons. Firstly, Sony has already included past Hitman games before on PS Plus, including Hitman: Absolution in May 2013 and Hitman HD Trilogy in December 2014. When one (or two) games in a series has already been including on PS Plus in the past, it’s very likely newer entries will make it to the list sometime in the future as well.
Secondly, Hitman has already been offered for free on PS Plus in other ways as early back as 2016. In March 2016, PlayStation Plus members were able to play the beta for free in the lead-up to the game’s full release, and more recently in June 2017 the first chapter of Hitman was then offered for free on multiple platforms to entice players to purchase the entire thing. As well, Hitman has often been included in PS Plus sales, with the episodes sometimes being only $3.99 each.
If we don’t see Hitman next month, then expect to see it sometime very soon. Check out page two where we also take a look at what possible indies might make it to PS Plus in September as well.
