Time for the August lineup of free games for PlayStation Plus members.
As revealed by the video below, Plus peeps will receive six free titles – two each for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Vita – and two will launch for the first time during the coming month.
For instance, PS4 users will get the upcoming Road Not Taken , which is slated to drop on August 5. It's one of the more promising and original digital titles on the immediate horizon, as we noted in our recent preview . The other free August game will be the award-winning Fez , Phil Fish's excellent puzzle/platformer.
For the PS3, we'll get the relatively well-received FPS Crysis 3 and the open-world adventure Proteus , and Vita owners will receive Vanillaware's awesome 2D action/RPG, Dragon's Crown . Europeans already got that one so instead, they can grab LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 . Then there's Metrico , another unique puzzle/platformer that utilizes the science of infographics and metrics in an entertaining way. Again, check out our preview for more info.
Two of August's free games support Cross-Buy: Fez and Proteus , and while Dragon's Crown doesn't technically support that feature, Plus members will still get both the PS3 and Vita versions of the game.
