Sony will offer open-world crime drama Mafia 3 and multiplayer horror game Dead by Daylight as freebies to PlayStation Plus subscribers in August 2018, the company announced today.

2K Games and Hangar 13’s Mafia 3 stars Lincoln Clay, a Vietnam War vet who returns from combat to find his home city of New Bordeaux (a fictional version of New Orleans) caught up in a struggle between various underworld crime organizations. Clay sets out on a path of vengeance, vowing to kill everyone between himself and a rival mafioso leader. The game is available on PlayStation 4.

Behaviour Interactive’s Dead by Daylight is a 4v1 multiplayer game in which one player assumes the role of a maniacal killer, while four others play as survivors hoping to escape the killer’s rampage. It’s also available on PS4.

PlayStation 3 owners will get access to role-playing game Bound by Flame and frenetic shooter Serious Sam 3: BFE this month. PlayStation Vita owners can download touchscreen-controlled action game Draw Slasher and the Warhammer 40,000 classic Space Hulk in August as part of their PS Plus subscription.

Additionally, if you have a PlayStation VR headset and a PS Plus subscription, you can also download Here They Lie, a virtual reality horror experience from Tangentlemen. Trivia game Knowledge is Power is also free this month, and it requires a mobile device and Sony’s PlayLink app.

All eight games will go free on PlayStation Plus on Tuesday, Aug. 7. In the meantime, you can still pick up July’s games, including Heavy Rain and Absolver.
