Now Playing: Free PS4/PS3/Vita PlayStation Plus Games For October 2018 Revealed

With October rapidly approaching, Sony has announced the lineup of free games PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to download during the spookiest month of the year. So without further ado, let's run down the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita games that will be available for free between October 2 and November 5.

As usual, two games will be free for each console, but thanks to Cross-Play, you can play five of them on PS4. Friday the 13th: The Game is the fitting headliner for October's PS4 offering. It's an asymmetrical online multiplayer game in which one player controls the masked killer Jason Voorhees as a group of other players try to escape with their lives. Laser League, a new online multiplayer game from the makers of OlliOlli, is also free on PS4 in October.

Over on PS3, Plus members can download the gorgeous puzzle game The Bridge (also playable on PS4) and the trippy genre mash-up Master Reboot. PS Vita owners can grab the side-scrolling twin-stick shooter Rocketbirds 2: Evolution and the retro-style sci-fi adventure game 2064: Read Only Memories. Both Vita games support Cross-Play with PS4.

As if that's not enough, the PS4 game Knowledge is Power continues to be free for PS Plus subscribers. It's a multiplayer trivia game that supports up to six players who can use their smartphone as controllers.

Since October hasn't arrived quite yet, it's not too late to download September's free PS Plus games. These include Destiny 2, God of War III: Remastered, Here They Lie, Another World - 20th Anniversary Edition, Qube: Director's Cut, Foul Play, and Sparkle 2. Whew.

Crap. Straight crap. I suppose I should be thankful though. There're way too many games this month and next month to be fitting in another into my busy schedule.

Avatar image for onehitta323

Good month for me. I enjoy the friday the 13th game. Have it on xbox one so I will definitely be picking this up to play with my ps4 friends.

Well i stopped my plus subscription long a go. As usual I don't miss much. I play more and more on my PC these days. Hooked to my 4k tv in the living room.

Avatar image for deactivated-5be5c296ab383

@tinoush: using a tv as a monitor is a mistake lol, but i agree my pc gets 70 percent of my play and ps4 the other 30

Avatar image for tinoush

@keoloko: I know what you mean with lag and all. But I never game competitive. Just good old single player games like shadow of war, ac origins, Forza horizon 4 etc. TV is great for it.

@tinoush: dont get me wrong i do it lmao but switching back to my monitor is almost night and day

@keoloko: I prefer my couche :)

@vfighter: Yawn...consoles are for kids.

@se7en1989: PC gaming is for virgins who rent games from Gaben instead of owning them. Sad!

Avatar image for vigariox

@abehpfan: how is that different from paying for a PS plus subscription to play games? Just saying.

Avatar image for deactivated-5be5c296ab383

@vigariox: ps plus isnt needed to play games. ps plus is for online multiplayer and only for those games that require it. if you play online and need ps plus, the games you get are a perk. no one is getting ps plus for the free games.

Avatar image for vigariox

@keoloko: I have to disagree with your last sentence, "No one gets PS Plus for the free games". I subscribe to PS Plus exclusively for the free games since I usually play single player games only anyway. In fact, the only Multiplayer game I am playing now is one I received free on PS plus.

Now about what I said earlier, I was replying to his comment that dissed Steam players in an article about PS plus games that you basically rent and can't play when your subscription expires.

Hmmm... I've been told that Laser League is a decent one and F13 is entertaining if you like the source material.
Still a weak month.

Awful as usual

Avatar image for altairdarius

The worst lineup yet 🤣

Avatar image for Chronologo

They could at least give better games to the PS3 owners. I don't have one anymore, but for the few ppl who have it some AAA titles wouldn't hurt since it's last gen and it's not like they would remaster every last gen AAA games (Or maybe they will lol)

Avatar image for itchyflop

@Chronologo: why when Sony arn't offering any current gen AAA titles!!

and ha a few people that do, im sure plenty do!! i do !!!

Avatar image for gamerforlife96

@itchyflop: is this comment supposed to be sarcastic???

Avatar image for itchyflop

@gamerforlife96: yes why?

Avatar image for gamerforlife96

@itchyflop: BC I laughed out loud

@gamerforlife96: and they say sarcasm is the lowest form of wit aye!!!

Meh, not really good choices for freebies next month.

Avatar image for berrlett

Hello All,

Since I love gaming and game quite a bit I decided to record some gameplays and post them on YouTube, if it’s not too much trouble please do you mind subbing to my channel its (Berrlett-at-Gameplay) all inputs, ideas and suggestions are more than welcome. Thanks heaps for your help.

There are so far Vids from XB1, PS4 and trying to figure out how to record from Nintendo platforms so I can add as well :)

Avatar image for analgrin

Meh, nothing for me this month. First time in a while though.

Avatar image for wildamnesia

At least they're not games I already own, which is 90% of the time. I wish they'd offer a choice of 3 titles each month, then we just pick the one we don't own already. I hardly buy games in the sales anymore because I know (sods law) that it'll be one of the free games eventually.

Just a lot of crap for October.

Avatar image for hrv_25

Can a man get the order 1886 in ps plus? I want to play the game but it’s price is still absurd.

Avatar image for justthetip

@hrv_25: Where in the world do you live? The Order 1886 is always $7.

Avatar image for hrv_25

@justthetip: not in my country. Well we do get crazy discounts for most of the games but few games are always priced high even after several years from the release.

Avatar image for Sindroid

@hrv_25: Seen that game on sale every now and then..

Avatar image for mickpunx

@hrv_25: Really? I just bought it for £8 (about $11) seems pretty reasonable.

Avatar image for itchyflop

@hrv_25: you're not missing much other that extensively long cut scenes, 6 hour campaign and nice visuals with duck and cover mechanics.

i got it cheap (physical) and thats still too much !!!

Why is the price absurd if you want to play it?

Avatar image for hrv_25

@itchyflop: the price is around $30 in my country for the physical version. The game’s not that great and it’s been a long time since release so paying $30 for it is not a value proposition. I bought horizon dawn complete edition for $20 on sale, which is newer title plus the game’s awesome.

Avatar image for deactivated-5bee09b4aa01f

@hrv_25: $15 to $20 is expensive for you? I enjoyed it and I honestly couldn’t believe how good the graphics were.

Avatar image for hrv_25

@badboyfx86: I buy physical copies only for PS4, haven't found any deal like that yet. A sale is coming in 1-2 weeks though. I may pick it up if it's on sale.

Avatar image for ahsanh

@badboyfx86: It was $4 in PS+ sale a couple of months ago and I'm sure it will be offered again at the same price in upcoming sales. Watch out for it. The game is worth playing and I personally loved it.

Could I trade these for a discount on my PS+ sub instead? No?

A man can dream...
