After a sketchy July that saw Sony replace Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 with Detroit: Become Human, the PlayStation 4 maker has unveiled the next two games coming to PS Plus, which are Wipeout Omega Collection and Sniper Elite 4.
Fans immediately rushed to blame Konami, who were initially as surprised as the fans, and said it wasn't their decision. Sony never gave the official explanation of why PES 2019 was removed , but it may have had something with Sony's FIFA marketing deal.
Anyway, PS Plus' August offer kicks off with Wipeout Omega Collection, a three-pronged package that contains three flavours of traditional Wipeout break-neck-ery.
We're talking about Wipeout 2048 that launched in 2012, Wipeout HD from 2008 and its expansion from 2009 titled HD Fury.
"Race against the clock and other competitors to take home a podium win, unlocking dozens of ships as you progress through 26 tracks. Competition gets fiercer online, with eight players duking it out in high-speed circuits. Alternatively, you can go one-on-one with a friend on the couch", Sony wrote.
The second PS Plus game in August is Sniper Elite 4, which is a more recent game from Rebellion Developments.
Sniper Elite 4 is a tactical stealth shooter that launched in 2017 to some pretty nice reviews, and if you haven't heard of it before, the name itself should be enough of a hint.
The game takes place in Italy in World War II and follows the events told in Sniper Elite 3's story. After a new Nazi weapon is used to sunk a freighter sent to investigate it, SOE sniper Karl Fairburne is sent to assassinate general Tobias Schmidt and his crew who were in charge of it.
Compared to its predecessor, Sniper Elite 3, SE4's maps are bigger and pack plenty of open spaces perfect for those long-range shots, and Rebellion threw in mantling as well.
As usual, if you're looking to play the August PS Plus games in online multiplayer, you'll need PlayStation Plus membership.
