PS Plus Aug 2022
Essential games will be revealed this week
The new games for PS Plus Extra and Premium will probably be released on August 17th made public.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 is most often named for Essential
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – Story Trailer [Deutsche Version] – Cinematic trailer makes you curious about the plot
Call of Duty is at the top of fans’ lists. The only thing the community doesn’t quite agree on is the title. With Infinite Warfare, Modern Warfare Remastered and the reboot Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, several offshoots are mentioned regularly.
Above all, Modern Warfare 2019 is very often on the lists. The reason is obvious: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the direct successor, will be released on October 28th, and it would be perfect to play the shooter in advance.
Is this realistic? Quite possibly yes, after all PlayStation and Activision still have an exclusive deal regarding CoD and including the MW reboot in the service before the release of the successor would make sense from a tactical point of view. In addition, Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered and Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered have also made it into the PS Plus subscription in the past.
Dino Crisis tops the list for Premium
Retro Hall of Fame: Dino Crisis – Great mix of brooding and action
Sony’s retro offer for PS Plus Premium is not really convincing at this point in time. Especially for the PS1 only a handful of titles are currently available. So it’s high time for a refill. And with the release of Dino Crisis, the lineup would look a whole lot better. The mix of Resident Evil and Jurassic Park is still unparalleled today and is considered by many fans to be the best dinosaur game of all time.
How likely is that? It is quite realistic that you will soon be able to play Dino Crisis as part of PS Plus Premium. On the one hand, this is because it is a real classic. On the other hand, there is already a leak that could have confirmed the project. In addition, Sony and Capcom have a very good relationship, so a deal should be easy to thread. Let’s hope the best.
