August PlayStation Plus lineup spills: Octodad, Far Cry 3, Saints Row 4 and The Swapper

Update:The twitter source incorrectly copied from a previous article dated 14 July, and it’s been confirmed that The Swapper won’t be coming to PlayStation Plus this August. Read all about it here. We apologise if we mislead anyone in any way.

Original story:

August’s PlayStation Plus lineup of games has been leaked by Russian twitter tipster gray_dev, and includes two excellent games for PS4, namely Octodad and The Swapper, as well as the brilliant Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and Saints Row 4 for PS3.

An official announcement from Sony is expected before the end of July, so we’ll have to take this leak under heavy scrutiny for now. Despite this, both the PS3 and PS4 will see some great games for free in August, but can it beat the Xbox Live: Games with Gold offerings? Xbox 360 owners get Dishonored while Xbox One consoles will snag Strike Suit Zero. Well, it’s not really a case of one beating the other, as both consoles are receiving a solid selection of free games in August.

Unfamiliar with the remaining PS4 games? We’ll help you out.

PS4: Octodad, The Swapper

PS3: Saints Row 4, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

PS Vita: 1001 Spikes, Atelier Rorona Plus

    If the PS4 games are false… Then what about PS3 and PS Vita?

  • maxy

    I don’t really know, but when I asked the person to ask the guy who confirmed that PS4 games are false, I told him to ask if PS3 games are correct and he didn’t answer to him, so it seems that these are the PS3 games. I don’t know about Vita though.

  • Rob Clarke

    They are all false – the russian guy misread this article as being the truth – http://www.brashgames.co.uk/2014/07/14/predicting-psplus-august2014/

  • maxy

    OH WOOWOOOHOO Rob Clarke talks to me. I CANT BELIEVE IT lol. Though that little russian got lots of attention, though im still wishing for PS3 games to be true and if you read from that article you sent me in the first paragraph the guy says his predictions were correct in some previous line-ups.

  • Rob Clarke

    I think it’s all guesswork but yeah, I think those are waaaaay more likely than the PS4 or Vita ones. SR4 would make a lot of sense as it was recently Deep Silvers birthday

  • maxy

    Yes I hope too, can you do me a favor and tweet Deep Silver UK and ask them if Saints Row IV is true?

  • Arcendus

    Whew, good to know because I just preordered The Swapper the other day.
