The Bigger Game – Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands
PS Plus Free Games Predictions
It’s about that time for some PS Plus free games predictions after an amazing couple of inclusions this past month.
In August 2020 we got the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered as well as a brand new battle royale Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout for free. It’s rare for Sony to offer a brand new game on PS Plus, but it’s proving to be an effective way to ramp up a player base with Fall Guys having over 85 million active players at the time of writing.
While the offical list for September has yet to be revealed, we predict the larger PS4 game for next month has a good chance of being Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands from Ubisoft.
Ghost Recon Wildlands is a tactical shooter with one of the biggest open worlds that Ubisoft has every published. It released in 2017 with a sequel Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint releasing in 2019, but it’s much more likely we would see the 2017 entry in the series on PS Plus first.
Sony usually gives AAA titles like Ghost Recon Wildlands a 2-3 year grace period on the console before they are considered for PS Plus. Sony is also very accustomed to offering Ubisoft games on PS Plus with past inclusions being:
- Far Cry 2 in February 2012
- Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon in December 2015
- Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry in August 2017
- For Honor in February 2019, and more
Not to mention a direct entry in the series Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier offered in June 2018.
Ghost Recon Wildlands is also currently for sale this month at 70% off bringing the price down to just $14.99. Sony will often put games on sale right before putting them on PS Plus to try and get a few more purchases before offering it for free.
If we don’t see Ghost Recon Wildlands next month, we predict it will be on PS Plus sometime very soon.
