It’s that time once again; here’s August’s PlayStation Plus previews, covering both the North American and European regions.

Just a reminder: As of July, North Americans have joined Europeans in getting all Plus titles on the first PSN Store update of the month.

This means that Tuesday (August 5th), the North American PSN will switch out everything currently on Plus for the new titles listed on the preview below – just like the European PSN will proceed to do the following day.

    Excellent month. Only own Fez. Really delighted about Metrico. RNT via remote play should be great too! 9/10

  • Lester Paredes

    Awesome. already have FEZ and was on the fence about Metrico, but now that it’s free, I’ll be trying it. Dragon’s Crown is awesome! Get it if you don’t have it already!

    • James Gough

      Metrico is really good.
      I’ve got Dragon’s Crown but still haven’t got round to starting it!

    Metrico makes August’s update a big win.
