PlayStation introduces new games for the Yakuza series after announcing some August titles that will be totally free for PS Plus members, a fact that stunned the entire community that closely follows Sony’s footsteps. 

Thus, it is known that there will be eight upcoming video games that will be part of the famous compilation within the catalog of its subscription service. So, if you’ve ever been intrigued to follow Kazuma Kiryu‘s story, you can do it starting this month for free!

To begin, as “Yakuza: Like a Dragon”, latest release of SEGA‘s long-running series, will be part of the August free repertory, the expectations that fans have for the new strategy of the videogame division are very high, since, as the company affirmed, any PS Plus subscriber (regardless of level)  will have the right to these benefits. 

Furthermore, starting Tuesday, August 2, PlayStation Extra and Premium members will be able to access both “Yakuza 0” and the epic “Yakuza Kiwami” in its two acts, video games with great emotional value for some, as they tell the beginning of the story of the protagonist, Kazuma Kiryu, while retaining their settings set in Tokyo, the capital of Japan, during the 1980s. 

Now, it should be noted that the alliance between SEGA and Sony is committed to continue for the rest of the year in order to bring more varied and new titles from the Yakuza collection for subscribers of the new PlayStation Plus.
