The free PlayStation Plus games for July 2019 have only been available for a couple of weeks now, but it appears as though August's offerings may have already leaked. While browsing through PS4 games on the PlayStation Store, a PS4 user noted that two titles were marked with the free PS Plus tag, leading to speculation that they will be the free PlayStation Plus games for August 2019.
The PS4 user in question sent proof to the publication Glitched Africa, providing photos of the games that will supposedly be the free PlayStation Plus games for August 2019. Assuming the photos are real and that they are accurate, Star Wars Battlefront 2 and EA Sports UFC 3 will be the free PS Plus games in August.
We recommend that this news is taken with a massive grain of salt. After all, it's possible that the photos were faked, or if they weren't faked, it's also possible that the games are marked that way in error.
One possibility to consider is that EA Access is coming to PS4 on July 24, and both EA Sports UFC 3 and Star Wars Battlefront 2 will be available for free through the service. Perhaps the games were prematurely and inaccurately labeled as free PS Plus games when they were really meant to be marked as free for anyone subscribed to EA Access. And since EA Access for PS4 is set to launch later this month, it seems unlikely that Sony would undermine the service's value by making two of its biggest titles free for PS Plus subscribers.
It would also be a bit strange for both of the free PS Plus games for August 2019 to be from Electronic Arts. We're not sure if there is precedent for that or not, but it seems as though most of the time the free PS Plus games are from different companies.
We're only about halfway through the month of July, so unfortunately, we likely won't hear official news on the free PS Plus games for August 2019 for a couple more weeks. We'll find out then if there was every any truth to Star Wars Battlefront 2 and EA Sports UFC 3 being the free PS Plus games for August 2019.
