Street Fighter V and PUBG Are September 2020’s PS Plus Games

Like clockwork, Sony has revealed next month’s PS Plus games, and the lineup is strong. Starting on Sept. 1, PS Plus members will be able to download Street Fighter V and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) at no additional cost. That means players will have until that day to grab August’s games, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered.

Fall Guys Is the Most Downloaded PS Plus Game in History

Speaking of Fall Guys, its momentum doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. Today, publisher Devolver Digital announced that Fall Guys has surpassed 7 million downloads on Steam and is the most downloaded PS Plus game of all time.

This is noteworthy since PS Plus has offered tremendous games like Rocket League, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, and The Last of Us Remastered. Tomorrow, as part of Gamescom: Opening Night Live, we’ll get a look at Fall Guys Season 2, which is due out sometime in the near future.

Hello Games’ Latest Game, The Last Campfire, Launches Tomorrow

This charming adventure title is a considerable departure from what the developer is known for with its previous project, No Man’s Sky — but it still looks to have a major sense of personality, along with new surprises as well.

You can check out the launch trailer below.
