October's PS Plus Free PS4, PS3, PS Vita Games Available For A Few More Days

October 2017 has a nice batch of freebies for PlayStation Plus subscribers.


We're now at the end of October, and if you haven't already done so, there's a new batch of free PlayStation Plus games for the month to still claim. Anyone who subscribes to Plus have a total of six games to download, spread evenly across PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita--although PS4 owners undoubtedly have the best selection. [Update: We've now learned the lineup of free PS Plus games for November, and it's another month with more than two games for PS4 owners.]

October's highlight is undoubtedly the headlining PS4 game, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Its predecessor, Ground Zeroes, was offered previously, but The Phantom Pain is a far more substantial experience. While not the end of the Metal Gear series--there's still the upcoming Metal Gear Survive, at the very least--The Phantom Pain is the last game to feature the participation of Hideo Kojima, who created the franchise.

Now Playing: Free PS4/PS3/Vita PlayStation Plus Games For October 2017 Revealed

Additionally, PS4's freebies include one that's perfect with Halloween coming up. Amnesia Collection is also free; it's a compilation of two different horror games: Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs. An additional two games can be had for free on PS4 this month, thanks to Cross-Buy being supported by October's Vita games, Sky Force Anniversary and Hue. This month's offerings are rounded out by the two free PS3 games, Hustle Kings and Monster Jam Battlegrounds. PS3 owners also get access to Sky Force Anniversary, which actually supports three-way Cross-Buy.

Time has already run out for That's You, a freebie that has been around for a while now but exited the free rotation on October 24. Another free game, the PSVR title RIGS, will return to its regular price on November 7.

Finally, Plus members get into the closed beta for Hand of the Gods, Smite developer Hi-Rez Studios' new game. To help get started, Plus subscribers can download a DLC pack that includes various freebies to help them get started.

All of these freebies are up for download on the PlayStation Store right now. They can be claimed either through the respective systems or on the PSN website.
