Ps plus august 2022

As seen above, the entire Yakuza series, ranging from Yakuza 0 to Yakuza: Like A Dragon, will be available to play for PS Plus Premium subscribers. Fans of Sega’s long-running series will be able to enjoy its distinctive blend of crunchy action, explorable districts, mini-games, and immersive storytelling starting this August.

The three games in the series that will only available to PS Plus Premium subscribers at a later date are Yakuza 3 Remastered, Yakuza 4, Remastered, and Yakuza 5 Remastered. The remaining games in the series can also be played by PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium subscribers in August. Meanwhile, PS Plus Essential subscribers will only have the opportunity of playing the latest game in the series i.e. Yakuza: Like a Dragon.

Each of the first 7 games in the series mainly involves a crime drama scenario, with plot lines inspired by yakuza films. Players assume the role of Kazuma Kiryu, a former mobster connected to the Tojo Clan, which has its headquarters in Kanto. The main premise of the series is Kiryu’s desire to quit the yakuza for good and try to assimilate into society by taking care of orphans, even though he often finds himself teaming up with the Tojo Clan’s leaders to thwart conspiracies aimed against them.
