PlayStation Confirms PS Plus Extra and Deluxe Lineup for August: Yakuza Series Incoming


PlayStation Plus Extra and Deluxe subscribers are in for a very Yakuza-shaped treat this August as 4 excellent Yakuza games make their way onto the Game Catalog, including the latest release in the franchise, Like A Dragon. Deluxe and Extra subscribers will be able to play Yakuza Kiwami, Kiwami 2, 0, and Like A Dragon this month, while the 4 other games will be available later this year.

This is a great deal for not just fans of the series as newcomers can pick up the story right from the start with the prequel, Yakuza 0 and make their way through the franchise till Kiwami 2. Later this year, players will see the conclusion of Kiryu’s storyline in Yakuza 4, 5, and 6: Song of Life Remastered.
