The new batch of games reportedly includes Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 and Yakuza: Like a Dragon.

August’s PlayStation Plus games are now live and available to download on PlayStation consoles.
The three games will be available for subscribers to claim from August 2 until September 6.
According to billbil-kun, the three games available from August 2 to September 6 will be:
- Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 (PS5 / PS4)
- Yakuza: Like a Dragon (PS5 / PS4)

2020’s Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 received favourable reviews from critics and debuted as the fastest-selling entry in the franchise, selling one million copies within its first two weeks.
PlayStation Plus Essential is the new name for the base PS Plus subscription service, where players get access to a few ‘free’ games every month.
Players can continue to play these games even after they’re no longer available to claim at the end of the monthly period, as long as they continue to subscribe to PlayStation Plus Essential (or a higher tier).
Once their subscription ends, they’ll no longer be able to play these games until they re-subscribe.
