PS Plus free games for October have finally been announced on PlayStation’s official blog. The subscribers of the online service can pick up Need for Speed: Payback and Vampyr for free from Oct 6-Nov 2.
For those who don’t know, PlayStation Plus is a paid service that offers users online gaming access, free cloud storage, special discounts, and most importantly, two free games every month.
Free Games On PS Plus For This Month
Need for Speed: Payback
Need for Speed: Payback is another adrenaline-pumping racing simulation in EA’s globally famous series. The 2017 game is set in the fictional city of Fortune Valley, which is based on Las Vegas. You can choose between three unique characters, each with their particular traits.
The open-world racing game is packed with action movie-like racing sequences. There are a plethora of vehicles you can drive, including Aston Martin, Jaguar, Koenigsegg, etc.
On the other hand, 2018’s Vampyr is an action RPG that takes you to the quaint streets of 1918 London. You play as Jonathan Reid, who is a doctor by day and vampire by night.
The story is based on your decisions, so make sure you don’t make the wrong ones under the influence of Reid’s bloodlust. The third-person game comes from Dontnod Entertainment which also developed the popular episodic game, Life Is Strange.
Reminder To Grab September’s Free Games
As new games take over on Oct 6, September’s free PS Plus games — PUBG and Street Fighter V — will go back to their normal prices. So, if you haven’t claimed them yet, make sure you do not miss out. The final chance to grab last month’s games is Oct 5.
With NFS Payback and Vampyr, PlayStation has made sure it caters to two distinct gaming audiences this time.
The racing game junkies can take their customized sports car for a spin in NFS Payback. Whereas, those who are into story-heavy singleplayer campaigns can don the garb of a 20th-century vampire in Vampyr.
