Sony has a new lineup of free games announced for October. Through PS Plus’ free games program, subscribers can download and play games across all PlayStation platforms at no additional cost. Take a look below to see what you can get your hands on this month!
Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain
Being Hideo Kojima’s swan song at Konami, Phantom Pain was a critical and commercial success after its release in September 2015. Players assume the role of Venom Snake (aka Big Boss), leader of the Diamond Dogs mercenary group. The year is 1984 and you set out to find those responsible for your demise in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. Use the Afghani landscape and stealth to your advantage in this engaging open world environment. It’s a blockbuster worth checking out.
This definitive collection of the horror series contains three titles: The Dark Descent, A Machine For Pigs, and Justine. It’s a narrative exploration mixed with puzzles and plenty of spooks. With a tense and unsettling atmosphere, Amnesia was a trendsetter for the horror genre. Its inspirations may be more frightening and visually superior, but this collection would be a great addition of adventure just in time for Halloween.
Monster Jam Battlegrounds
While it isn’t 100-player battle royale with monster trucks, Monster Jam Battlegrounds certainly fits the bill for an essential monster truck experience. Race or freestyle with any of your favorite trucks in the stadium, or test your skills on 45 tracks much in the style of Trials. There’s also a Stunt mode to test your power of destruction. You can hear the engine roars from here…
If you got kicked out of the local pool hall for sharking one too many games, you’ll be right at home with Hustle Kings. This pool game has both career mode and online multiplayer across four different modes. Rack ‘em up and knock ‘em down for free in October.
Hue – also on PS4
This award-winning puzzle adventure takes you to a world waiting for color and vibrance. On a journey to find your missing mother in a dangerous gray world, you use color fragments to alter the level and traverse obstacles. This side-scroller has a simplistic art style playable on both the Vita and PlayStation 4.
Sky Force Anniversary – also on PS3 and PS4
The 10th anniversary edition of this beloved arcade shoot-em-up is now available for free. Take on the forces of evil with updated 3D graphics and intuitive controls. It’s a top-down destructive adventure with powerful upgrades to boot—take it on the go with Vita or play it at home on either PlayStation console.
