Your PlayStation Plus free games lineup for October just dropped, and it's going to be an amazing month! For those of you own a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, we have a feeling that your PS4 is going to get a lot more play time next month. This lineup is pretty stunning. We have action! We have scares! We have casual sports and we have platforming!
The big headliner this month is freaking Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. You guys want big AAA games for free?! Sony is going to give you a big AAA game for free. The Phantom Pain was a pretty unanimous hit across the board. It reviewed well, long-time fans loved it, and it continued to make headlines for months after launch due to its questionable heroine 'Quiet,' and her questionable wardrobe (or lack thereof). This is a modern classic, and can't be missed!
Let's dive into the full lineup. We'll begin with the PS4 headliners, and then move on to the PS3 and Vita games!
PlayStation 4 Lineup
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
- "Ushering in a new era for the franchise with cutting-edge technology powered by the Fox Engine, MGSV: The Phantom Pain, will provide players a first-rate gaming experience as they are offered tactical freedom to carry out open-world missions.
- "Taking place nine years after the events of MGSV: Ground Zeroes and the fall of Mother Base, Snake a.k.a. Big Boss, awakes from a nine year coma. The game resumes the story in 1984, with the Cold War still as the backdrop, which continues to shape a global crisis. Snake's journey takes him into a world where he is driven by a need for revenge and the pursuit of a shadow group, XOF."
- "Amnesia: The Dark Descent puts you in the shoes of Daniel as he wakes up in a desolate castle, barely remembering anything about his past. Exploring its eerie pathways, you must piece together Daniel's troubled memories and uncover the horror that lies deep below."
PlayStation 3 Lineup
Monster Jam Battlegrounds
- "Monster Jam Battlegrounds brings the ever popular touring show straight to the fans with roaring engines and crushing action. Not only does this game replicate the world renowned Monster Jam stadium and arena events, but it also takes fans out of the stadium and into other environments for physics based skill and stunt challenges."
- "Compete against the world in 1-on-1 matches and multiplayer tournaments to rise up the online league. Hone your pocketing skills through 4 levels of challenging career mode games. Enter daily challenges for big prizes and enjoy smart social features, with global activity feeds and a fresh new ranking system."
PlayStation Vita Lineup
- "Hue is a vibrant, award-winning puzzle adventure, where you alter the world by changing its background colour. You explore a dangerous grey land, unearthing coloured fragments on a journey to find your missing mother. As obstacles match the background, they disappear, creating new and exciting puzzles - full of peril, mystery… and colours unseen."
Sky Force Anniversary
- "Sky Force Anniversary is a re-creation of a near-perfect, air-based shoot 'em up where players' goal is to save the world from evil General Mantis. To do so, players will have to upgrade their ship with devastating power-ups, fight gargantuan bosses and blow up a ton of nasty enemies, including choppers, fighters, tanks and turrets."
