Sony has dropped a surprise bomb on PlayStation Plus subscribers as one of August’s free games is revealed early.

Just days after the July 2021 free games launch, Sony has announced next month’s PS5 offering.

Hunter’s Arena will replace A Plague Tale Innocence on August 3 and will be free for PS Plus subscribers until September 7.

The news was announced at Sony’s recent State of Play event, along with a preview of what fans can expect.

According to a new post on the PlayStation Blog, Hunter’s Arena is a battle royale game set in an ancient East Asian world.

Players take control of a fighter tasked with defeating deadly demons on a massive map.

Through a combination of hand-to-hand melee combat and sword fighting, fighters will also be forced to fight each other.

Each battle features 30 player characters, as well as an untold number of computer-controlled demons.

Killing demons rewards players with new loot, making you strong enough to defeat other player characters.

“Your ultimate goal in Hunter’s Arena is to fight your way through 30 other players and prove yourself as the deadliest Hunter,” Sony explains.

“You should always strategize before diving straight into the action – stay careful because you could become the hunted at any moment in this unyielding world.”

Demons are said to have unique fighting styles that require different strategies. Fortunately, the fighters all have their own special abilities and fighting styles.

“Each time you enter the arena you can choose from 17 different fighters. I recommend trying out different fighters as they range from close to far.

“Close-range fighters can do a lot of damage if you manage to close the gap between you and the enemy. Few of them even have the ability to pull enemies toward them or create shockwaves that pull enemies into a spot.

“Long Range Hunters are perfect for flying enemies from a distance. While projectiles deal a lot of damage, it will take practice to land them perfectly in fast-paced combat.”
