August 2019's PlayStation Plus titles have been revealed. The lineup, which, as always, is made up of two PlayStation 4 titles, includes WipEout Omega Collection and Sniper Elite 4.
This obviously means that the supposed "leak" from earlier this month -- which suggested Star Wars Battlefront 2 and EA Sports UFC 3 would be August's PS Plus games -- must have been some kind of PlayStation Store bug. We were right to be wary!
Despite the rumours being wrong, this is a strong lineup. We particularly enjoyed WipEout Omega Collection, despite it recycling tracks for the umpteenth time. We awarded it a 7/10, and love its PlayStation VR mode.
WipEout Omega Collection is an impressive remaster that shines at high speeds, though elements of this compilation are starting to show their age. Despite being boosted all the way up to 4K on the PS4 Pro, some of the tracks are returning for the fourth time, and while WipEout 2048’s contemporary layouts look luxurious on the big screen, it can be hard to shake the feeling of familiarity on occasion. That said, if anti-grav is your bag, then there’s nothing quite like the original – even with the number of inferior pretenders on the racing scene these days.
And Sniper Elite 4 is no slouch either, as we scored it a similarly solid 7/10 in our review:
Enormous, open levels augment Sniper Elite 4 with some of the best long-distance shootouts that the series has seen thus far. The under-the-hood improvements – paired with the idyllic Italian backdrop – do give this entry the edge over its predecessor, but if you've played one of these games before then you'll know more or less what to expect. Nevertheless, as far as ball busters go, it doesn't get much better (or wince-inducing) than this.
Are you happy with August's lineup? Give us an honest opinion in the comments section below.
I’m actually happy with both of those, although I do wish we were getting more than two.
Already have wipeout so those who don't should definitely jump on that and i'll add sniper elite 4 to the ever growing backlog!
yes very happy with both of these
Don't own either, happy to try both.
not interested in Sniper Elite but i'll give Wipeout a go
Thank goodness. Don't care about the sniper elite, but I'd much rather have Wipeout than EA games.
nice line up I don't have neither games.really happy. word up son
Whoops Glad I didn't bought WipEout in last psn sale. Was too close to buying it. Anyway great month, Sniper Elite 4 also looks good.
I knew it bought Sniper Elite a week or so ago but on disc so I can sell that and get the digital version been tempted a few times on wipeout glad I resisted the urge. A lot better month this time.
Nice, I wanted to try Sniper Elite 4.
Awesome! I have been close to buying both in the past. A great month!
Already have the Wipeout collection and probably wont play Sniper Elite, still a great month imo.
Own both, but it's undoubtedly a good month.
I don't own either so from that respect, its not a 'bad' month but neither were games that I had on my radar. I will add both though and might give either a go at some point...
Happy with both of those, always liked the wipe out series but haven't played this one and never played any sniper elite games so I am happy I can them a try.
So, which is more fun, Zombie Army Trilogy or Sniper Elite 4? I am in the mood for this kind of game, and Zombie is in my backlog. But now I can choose which is next-any thoughts? Thanks in advance for any input!
WipEout is an awesome addition, and I've never played a Sniper Elite game. Great stuff
I'll gladly check both of these. Already have Star Wars BF2 and I'm not a fan of sports game. Thank god the leak was wrong.
Nice, I'll play both of these!
Sweeeeet, two games I've been keen to try out.
Not my cup of tea, but a solid month I reckon.
Pretty sound that.
Decent choices. I have Wipeout and may try SE4. But good for the ones interested.
Uhh... Is this a joke?...
I actually don't have these games!
Whoohooo!!!! I'm content with this lineup.
Decent month, happy with both of them.... finally
I have Wipeout from PSVR and so I don't mind but I have Sniper Elite 4 from PSNOW... I am starting to regret more and more getting PSNOW -.-
I've had Wipeout for ages; those new tracks in particular are mighty impressive. But I didn't have the lightning reflexes to play it well on the PS1, and certainly don't two decades later..
More than happy to absolutely wreck newcomers on WipEout and make them delete the game in anger.
I hate wipeout. The sniper game has not set any records
I have Wipeout already and have no interest in the other but I have plenty to occupy myself in the coming months and 3 Doom games to see me through a quiet summer so I'm happy
I will probably play Wipeout for around eight minutess and then I'll remember why I never play Wipeout.
Leakers that end up being liars are bottom of the barrel. In my humble opinion
Yet another trash month for anyone that's owned a PS4 for more than two weeks.
Already have Wipeout but I'm happy because it means online won't be absolutely dead in the water for a few months at least! Criminally underrated game.
I don't have either - I'm very pleased. I do have the two previous Sniper games (and Zombie Army Trilogy), so will enjoy these Plus additions.
Even if I did have them, both are high quality releases, so for those like me who don't own them, it's a good month.
Already have Wipeout and I don't really care about Sniper Elite 4 so it's a disappointing month for me I'll probably just add Sniper Elite 4 to my growing library of never to play games of PSplus games
I own both too, but for those that don’t have Wipeout, it’s a great month. If you have VR and haven’t tried Wipeout, you are in for a treat.
I already own wipeout but will definitely give sniper elite a go.
Good selection, but still think there should be more games.
Nice! I wanted to get Wipeout when it first came out but never got around to it. Now I don’t have to pay for it!
Excellent selection!I've been wanting to try a Sniper Elite game for ages and Wipeout is bound to be good.
meh... but okay I suppose... uninspired
Been wanting to try sniper elite 4 and wipe out so I'm happy. I think the leak may have been to do with ea access and not ps plus
Oh no! I dodged the PES 2019 bullet as already own it, but now don't think will be able to dodge Wipeout that got with PSVR Mega pack... however, I'm not into driving games but love Wipeout with PSVR.
Well, on the sunny side I'm happy to try Sniper elite as am interested in the forthcoming VR version and as Italian antifascist am really happy to get rid of many fascists. I hope there is a kill cam for nuts shots, as am going to aim to nuts only!
For me at least, this is the best month since they have bloodborne and ratchet and clank (both of which I owned). Better.
Meh. Doesn't do much for me. Oh well.
@ShogunRok can't decide whether that's too savage, or not savage enough 😂
Either way, haven't played Wipeout in a long time and SE4 somehow slipped through the net for me.
Long time fan of the series since the first buggy mess way back when on the original X Box 😂
Solid month no doubt.
Haha, the psplus promo email saying the August games are worth 104€... stop drinking Sony, and increase the amount of games to what it once was!
At least I don’t own either of these. I tried playing a Wipeout game once and didn’t enjoy it but willing to try again. Never played Sniper Elite and in fact am surprised that there’s actually 4 of them.
Not really interested in either, bit disappointing that it's two months in a row with a racing game.
Oh yes! More than happy with this, they were both on my wish list and I’ve almost bought them both in sales recently. Great month!
Already have WipEout but that's a solid selection.
Since playing wipe out on ps3, back when Sony had a security flaw and potentially gave our details away to whomever, I've wanted to play another of the series... And I've always enjoyed playing as a sniper in pve shooters, so actually, I'd say this was a win-win month for me. Finally!
Think that’s a great month to be honest, Wipeout is great and the Sniper Elite are pretty fun in their own right, also ‘AAA’!! 😂
@ShogunRok after being up all night beating mgs4 for the nth time from start to finish, my cousin and I decided to play a little wipeout to cool off (paradoxical enough, I'm sure) I'd just downloaded it and neither of us had much experience since ps1 days. Lo and behold, we take it online and race the fastest setting. I came last, (maybe didn't even finish the track!) and my cousin had somehow adapted superhuman reflexes and took 1st place. We couldn't believe it, so we tried again. Then we both came last and balance was restored. Still can't explain what happened, however...
probally had to do with that new EA subscription service, at least you guys arent full of $#!t like that site the daily mail or daily star or whatever the hell its called who often copy paste stuff from this site and call it "reporting" lol

Thanks for understanding
God damn I bought Sniper Elite in the last sale! Good picks though.
@J2theEzzo It's all about being in the zone! WipEout's always given me a rush that no other racer has. Maybe it's because it can be so difficult. When you get the turns just right it's an amazing feeling.
Awesome month! I don’t own either title but I’ve had my eye on the Wipeout collection for a while.
I just bought Wipeout.... this is why we need more than 2 games.
Sniper Elite is decent I guess. Only two games is killing Plus free games. I will complain if own a game already since 2 games is an unacceptable number.
I am happy with this month. Been wanting wipeout for so long now. And happy to check out Sniper Elite 4
It was well known to be an access issue. C'mon guys...
Own the Wipeout collection and Sniper Elite 4 on PC.
Remember, Wipeout is a fantastic game with a fantastic VR mode bundled right in.
@Jaz007 That's why I wait to buy games after the PS+ line up is announced.
Quite a bummer lol
Not played a wipeout game since the original one on PS 1. I’ll certainly give it a whirl. Tidy
Wipeout is amazing. The PSVR mode is top notch also.
Already own WipeOut but happy enough with Sniper Elite 4. Two racing games in a row is a bit much though, I know they're very different games but they're both racers. Could be a lot worse though.
Own wipeout already but it's a decent month!
I own both, Good games to be honest 🙂
WipeOut is amazing in VR!! Although make sure you have the comfort mode on, otherwise bleurgh!!!
I'm very happy. I've always wanted to try Sniper Elite, and Wipeouts ain't my type of game, but they're consistently well made, so I'll try it.
Yet another disgraceful selection. I hate wipeout, such pathetic game, in every sense of the word. Never liked any of the wipeouts. They’re not good looking good to play. The crew etc are real racing games. And I already own every sniper elite so pointless free games. This whole PS+ thing is becoming more of a rip off..............
I’ve got wipeout, great if you’ve got VR. I’ve been waiting to try Sniper Elite for a while.
Decent month this month.
Already bought wipeout, not interested in sniper elite 4, but I think this is a good month for everyone.
i'll pass, again. hate racing games in general, and i tried wipeout previously and just found it massively frustrating. i have sniper elite 3, and it's terrible, so no desire to play #4.
In Asia we get Chronicles of Teddy instead of sniper. That disappointing.
Got Wipeout. Sniper Elite always looked not bad though. Looking 4ward to it.
great month again
@ShogunRok I get it from time to time, I just don't feel I've ever been quite there enough to play like a pro. Nevertheless, I do enjoy a bit of wipe out, and I can more than understand the idea behind it; finding the skill to overcome obstacles, and the joy you feel once you've achieved. Oh yes, the souls games taught me that!
Thats such garbage.
I really wanted battlefront 2 to be free for people who havent tried it yet. Its such a great game.
Would have preferred that Teddy game lol
When will they start spending money on new games instead of insulting us with remastered ones. I feel like they’re just cashing in on old popular titles. Like COD MW etc........enough is enough. Im horrified that they’re trying to charge a whopping £84.99 for the next remaster COD. I for 1 will not be purchasing it and as for the free game I bought sniper elite when it came out. So what the point. They need to seriously change tactic with PS+ because all I get for my yearly subscription is the ability to play online and watch YouTube etc. Disgraceful. I might head over to Xbox if this keeps up.!!! [email protected]!
@Neolit grrrr, they make me so angry, greedy corporate 💩s. All they want is our MONEY.........we used to benefit way more with PS+. Oh well back to the organ to grind some more. No rest for the wicked.......Monday rant over lol 🤬🤬🤬😂🤣
At last, the monthly PS Plus games won't just stay in the library. Gonna download them both.
