PlayStation Plus Games and Trophies For August 2018
by Dylan Blight
Sony has released the upcoming list of games coming to PlayStation Plus for August 2018. Leading the titles this month are Mafia 3 and Dead by Daylight, available 7th of August.
There are two extra titles this month as well as the usual PS4, PS3 and Vita titles. You can grab Here They Lie for PSVR available until October 2cnd and Knowledge is Power the PlayLink title until November 6th.
This month you will able to achieve a total of 6 Platinum, 16 Gold, 60 Silver, and 220 Bronze trophies. If you have the 6+ tablets or devices needed, Knowledge is Power is the easiest Platinum trophy for the month. Mafia 3 is the second easiest you’ll have, it can be time-consuming and need two playthroughs but nothing is a huge struggle.
MAFIA 3 (PS4)
‘It’s 1968 and after years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: family isn’t who you’re born with, it’s who you die for. ‘
Mafia 3 has a lot of cool things going for it, including its setting, story and characters. Some of the moment to moment gameplay can become repetivitve, but I’m a fan of the game.
I picked up the Platinum quickly after release which is striaght-forward enough and have been looking for an excuse to do the DLC — this might be it.
DEAD BY DAYLIGHT (PS4)
‘Dead by Daylight is a multiplayer (4vs1) horror game where one player takes on the role of the savage Killer, and the other four players play as Survivors, trying to escape the Killer and avoid being caught and killed.’
We’ve played a lot of Friday The 13th here at the Explosion Network but haven’t dabbled in Dead by Daylight, but this month might be a great time. It’s 4vs1 gameplay with a bunch of horror characters including Freddy Kruger and looks like a slashing good time.
Trophy wise it’s an online grind fest with a bit of luck involved for a lot of the scenarios. You’ll probably need 100+ hours to get the Platinum.
