The August 2020 Free PS Plus Games are going to be :
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered and Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout!
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered (a clunky title, but it explains everything you need to know) was released only back in March 2020, and already a free game.
Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout is following Rocket League’s success by having its launch be part of the PS+ initiative. The game is very much inspired by Takeshi’s Castle, like a very colorful and crowded version of TBS’ Wipeout.
I’m pretty excited to try these games out. CoD MW2 CR comes out today, Tuesday, July 28, and Fall Guys launches on August 4. Hence why the announcement came early. I’m going to play Modern Warfare 2 on Recruit difficulty and try to get as far as I can in a night. Fall Guys, I’m really hoping has couch co-op as I think Walker Dennis will love playing it as well.
. . .
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is currently a $20 game, and has gone as low as $15 in the past.
Fall Guys has no previous pricing, and I supposed we won’t know what it retails at until September, so I will have to remember to recalculate the running total for the October announcement as the game would still be free by the time the September games are announced.
Our current running total is $165 plus Call of Duty WWII Digital Edition, and I would add Fall Guys, but we’ll know the price of the game eventually. So adding $15, our new total is $180. We’re almost at $200 and not even into the fourth quarter of the year.
Since CoDMWCR is only the campaign, it was not given any DLC.

Reddit reactions have mostly been comments about how this is the fastest turnaround for a game’s release to being a Plus title ever, at four months. People seem to be really excited for Fall Guys, so that’s nice. We will all be getting in on the game at the ground floor, and the lobbies should be super full.

I stayed up a little too late to beat Rise of the Tomb Raider! Such an amazing game! I got to the last campfire and it said there was no turning back from this point and it was still around 11:45pm, so I figure I could give it another 30 minutes, at the most. Then I woke up around 2am this morning with mega heart burn, and that usually puts me in a wide awake frame of mind, so I finished two tombs, earning the Tomb Raider trophy, and that felt pretty good too. I may try to buy those last two guns in the Supply Shack, but first I need like 50 more coins, and I might finally get back to The Council. Just in time for one of our PS+ titles to come along too. So that all timed out pretty nicely. If either Tomb Raider came (Shadow or 2013) goes on sale below $10, I’m buying those games, no matter what! I had such a great time!
Though I do worry that Rise may have perfected any kinks that 2013 had, but Shadow should be everything that was great in Rise, but more of it, right?

Walker Dennis has gotten really into Lego Dimensions again. He’s also gotten into Doctor Who, right when it can’t be found anywhere besides HBO MAX. Which I really wish Roku would just make a deal with HBO Max and make it so we can watch the app not on my phone but on our actual TV. Philo no longer has Doctor Who either and Amazon Prime Video has BritBox, but that’s an extra $7 a month that I rather not spend.
I bought Walker another Doctor Who disc, so once it comes in, we can have two Doctors on screen at one time, so that should make him pretty happy. He’s been pretty obsessed with watching Twice Upon a Time where the First and Twelve Doctors meet. I overrode the Simpsons TV toy tag so we already have two TARDISes (?).
If we play a level a night, we should be able to earn Walker his second Platinum, but sometimes our nights gets away from us, but it would be fun to earn that trophy with how much he loves that game. We have to finish five levels and then do 25 puzzles of each type : Searching, Painting, and Weather Powers, and I would have sworn we have done the work for those, but those are the three I’m concern we will have to keep completing the proper Portal 2 level in the main game. But hopefully we earn one of those during the next five levels, as I’m concern the game is glitched, but 25 does seem like a lot, so we must be close.
