Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout are officially the free PS Plus August games.
The news comes from the official PlayStation blog. Infinity Ward’s beloved Modern Warfare 2 will be a free download for all PS Plus subscribers from August 4, 2020. It’s important to note that this is the recently remastered version of Modern Warfare 2, which does not feature the multiplayer section of the iconic 2009 version. It’s campaign only.
Meanwhile Mediatonic’s indie darling Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout will also be available for all PS Plus subscribers. This means that PS Plus subscribers will have launch day access to the all-new competitive party battler.
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout will be available to download from Tuesday, August 4 until Monday, August 31, giving players almost four weeks to get their hands on it. In order to get it for free, you’ll obviously have to be signed up to PS Plus.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be available for even longer. You can download it from tomorrow, July 28, and it will be available until the same date as Fall Guys, August 31.
If you haven’t download the PS Plus games for July yet, you’d want to get your skates on. NBA 2K20, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Erica – which was added as an additional game for July in order to celebrate the 10th anniversary of PS Plus – will be available to download until Monday, August 3, the day before the store shifts to it PS Plus August lineup.
The PS Plus August announcement also mentions that a free online multiplayer weekend will be coming to PS4 in early August. It starts at 12:01am on Saturday, August 8 and is set to run until 11:59pm on Sunday, August 9. The two-day window is based on local time, which means you don’t need to worry about calculating time difference or anything like that.
Again, Modern Warfare 2 is available tomorrow, July 28, and Fall Guys is available next Tuesday, August 4. Both games will be free for PS Plus subscribers until August 31.
