Available now the latest PS Plus update has dropped Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered as part of the August package of free games for subscribers.
Each month, PS Plus members get some free games to download and keep for as long as their subscription is active.
The deal usually consists of one well-known title and a lesser-known or indie game.
Sometimes there are two larger titles or sometimes there are two indie games included.
The selection has gotten a lot better since Sony discontinued PS Plus support for PS3 and Vita.

Last month’s games for example consisted of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, NBA 2K20 and Erica.
Two of these are best-selling AAA developments while Erica is a cult indie game.
This month’s lineup has stuck to the usual one of each approach with the other available game being “Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout“.
However, the August selection stands out as well because Fall Guys is actually a brand new release rather than having been around for a while.
That being said, the updated Call of Duty title has only been around since March this year.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered takes gamers back to the classic blockbuster experience of one of the best titles in the popular series.
The remaster brings back classic maps such as The Gulag with legendary heroes such as “Price” and “Ghost“.
All of this in updated HD fidelity with high-resolution textures and rebuilt in-game assets.
Other various graphical features such as lighting and shadow have also been improved, breathing new life into one of the greatest Call of Duty experiences.
The campaign consists of classic characters such as Soap, Ghost and Roach must hurry to prevent a war between Russia and the United States.
The sixth game in the series, the original Modern Warfare 2 was released in 2009 by Infinity Ward and received numerous awards.
As well as winning awards for gameplay in its excellent campaign mode, the game also won various awards for the multiplayer segment, something which Call of Duty games are known for.
It must be made clear that this version does not include multiplayer and only the story campaign.
The other free game, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is a brand new release.
The title is a battle royale type game in which up to 60 players must play through various rounds of escalating mayhem until only one is left standing.

The game is very casual and allows anyone to pick up and play without having to worry about being a talented gamer as with other battle royale titles.
Already, the game is getting positive results from users across the internet, with one user stating:
Being very colorful, accessible and child-friendly, this is a title that I can see becoming an instant classic.
Both these excellent games are available now for PS Plus subscribers.
