September 2020's free PS Plus games have been revealed. As per usual, subscribers are getting two PS4 titles. This time around, it's Street Fighter V and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (otherwise known as PUBG).
Both games have a multiplayer focus, although it's worth noting that Street Fighter V has come a long, long way since its bare bones launch. It's now packed with a good amount of single player content that should keep you busy. There's no mention of this being the Arcade Edition, however, so it probably doesn't include additional DLC characters or costumes.
In our most recent Street Fighter V review, we awarded the game an 8/10, describing it as a "complete package at last":
It's taken close to two years, but Street Fighter V finally resembles the game that it should have been from the start thanks to Arcade Edition. Newcomers can rest assured that there's now enough single player content to keep casual players happy, and at its core, the actual fighting remains top class. There's a cynical part of us that says Arcade Edition is little more than a glorified season three update, but the simple truth is that there's never been a better time to jump in.
Despite launching a little late on the PS4, we were also impressed with PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, again awarding it an 8/10 in our review:
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds manages to differentiate itself from its battle royale progeny with its more tactical spin on the formula, even with its obvious lack of presentational prowess. While its grounded approach can be brutal at first, if you take the time to immerse yourself in its stress inducing battles, you’ll find yourself involved in epic engagements that will have you sharing your successes – and failures – with anyone willing to listen. It may not be the king anymore, but PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds still more than deserves a place at the top table.
The two games will be available to download starting from the 1st September. It's perhaps worth pointing out here that new or lapsed subscribers can temporarily get 25 per cent off annual memberships right now. There's more information on that promotion through here.
