PS4's Free PS Plus September 2018 Games Out Now

In before Forsaken.

100 Comments

Sony has announced the games PlayStation Plus members will be able to download for free in September. As usual, subscribers get two games each for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita between September 4 and October 1. Two things about this month's offerings are unusual. First, all six games are Cross Buy with PS4, so you don't need to dust off old hardware to play them. And secondly, one of the games is available early--right now, in fact. Here's what PS4, PS3, and PS Vita games PS Plus members can expect to get for free in September 2018. [Update: The full PS Plus lineup for September is now available.]

The biggest game on the list--and the one you can download right now--is Destiny 2. This shared-world online shooter launched last year to wide acclaim before much of the players base ran out of things to do. All this year, Bungie has been adding content through expansions and surprise updates in order to create more endgame content. The effort has seemed to pay off. With the major Forsaken expansion launching on September 4 (sold separately), the player base seems to be coming back around in a big way.

Better yet, everyone with a copy of Destiny 2 can participate a 24-hour free trial of the upcoming PvP-meets-PvE Gambit mode, starting September 1 at 10 AM PT (1 PM ET). If you want to see your options for accessing Forsaken, take a look at our Destiny 2: Forsaken pre-order guide.

The other PS4 game free to PS Plus members in September is God of War III Remastered, a souped-up version of the PS3 classic. September's PS3 games (also playable on PS4) are Another World - 20th Anniversary Edition and Q.U.B.E. Director's Cut. The PS Vita games (again, playable on PS4) are Sparkle 2 and Foul Play.

And while these aren't specific to September's lineup, PS Plus members can still download the smart phone-controlled trivia game Knowledge is Power through November 6 and the PSVR horror game Here They Lie for free through October 2.

It's also not too late to download August's PS Plus freebies. These include Mafia III and Dead by Daylight on PS4, Bound by Flame and Serious Sam BFE on PS3, and Draw Slasher and Space Hulk on PS Vita.

Damn I just paid $20.00 for the remastered God of War 3 last month. They really should come out with some kind of schedule for these free games, though I am guessing that is asking for to much lol

For some reason I can’t get QUBE PS4 for free even though it’s cross buy…? I got all the others without any trouble. Was looking forward to that one.

The wrong God of War. =P Why hasn't Moss, Robinson or Monster of the Deep, for PSVR been a free game yet. Or at the very least discounted. Not with the soundtrack.

@nazart81: I heard the same, but since it's a triple A game that was released less than a year ago and it's free, I'm definitely getting it!

Huh I had no idea they even rereleased Another World! It's a great game and you nay-sayers should really check it out if you haven't. God of War 3 is a nice addition too.

@chubby170: It's kind of like a sci-fi old school Prince of Persia. It's probably a really small file for PS4 so check it out. Nothing to lose if you already have PS Plus!

@chubby170: No, it’s more a cinematic platformer. If you think “a more actiony version of the original Prince of Persia,” you’re very close.

The user base for Destiny 2 didn't "run out of things to do". They were strong-armed into buying the DLC by way of locking them out of parts of the base game if they hadn't purchased it, so most of them finally quit. They'd been lied to, constantly, about Bungie's efforts to diminish experience points for users that played over a certain amount of hours, as well as many other things, most of which were reported HERE. Why this article doesn't mention this mostly comes down to the amount of zeroes on the check, I guess.

Forsaken is coming and they release the game for free. It's a smart move.
Still, too many stuff that I need to purchase if I want to have the full experience (Only played the base game) So not interested.

Call me a pessimist if you will but both of these games (for PS4) are there to garner sales. Destiny 2's base game is completely obsolete when the game is available for download without the Forsaken DLC and God of War 3 is yet another remastered game on Plus but this is given away in my opinion to draw people's attention to God of War (2018).

Sure, games are getting better for PS4 Plus subscribers but that's only due to the lineup being so poor for PS4's first few years (with minor exceptions) but this kind of treatment is inexcusable after raising subscriptions by 25% (from £40 to £50 per year in the UK). Sony must think we are idiots to keep paying them while they use sale tactics on us.

@gotrekfabian: Destiny 2 base game has like 30 hours of content. You are locked out of the newer stuff from the dlc, but still got the campaign, strikes, side missions, PvP and the Raid...

@Kyizen: True but not really the point I'm making here. Do you not think that the reason Destiny 2 is included is to push for more sales of it's latest DLC?

@gotrekfabian: It clearly is. It is even stated in this article sherlock. Does it matter though? The amount of content the base game offers is good enough. You can then decide if you want to buy the DLC or not; no one's forcing you.

@Arkhalipso: Well, that's the whole point, did you even read the initial comment? Calling people Sherlock is literally elementary school levels of sarcasm, please end your internet subscription and spare the rest of the World Wide Web from verbal dysentery. "Destiny 2's base game is completely obsolete when the game is available for download without the Forsaken DLC"

What the hell do you think killed Destiny 1? This game came out less than a year ago, is supposed to be a "killer app", and they're giving it out for free? Literal desperation for DLC purchases, game's getting no sales.

@Dawg9000: I wouldn't waste your effort on typing anything to people like this. They're clearly a Destiny apologist. People just don't appreciate differences of opinion or, worse still, don't want to admit to the truth. I wish more people would stand up to the malpractices within the industry but most find their resolve waivering when a carrot (in this case a free game designed to lead them towards further purchases) is dangled in front of them.

PS I'd rather be Sherlock than Watson any day. ?

@Dawg9000: I DID read the initial comment. I don't think you get the meaning of "obsolete". The base game will be far from obsolete even after the DLC releases, especially now that it is free. Trying to diminish the value of a AAA PS+ free title just because there is a "mandatory" DLC releasing in a couple of days is pathetic. It doesn't take anything away from the base game, nor does the amount of sales.

Sorry for not being up to date with how to use sarcarsm. Maybe we should continue this conversation in my native language, which I want to believe you are a master of.

@gotrekfabian:

I've been paying PS4 plus for two years now. Each year they come with discounted cards, so i canceled my subscription. I've never even used any free game since i don't have the time or i already played the sequel. I am not an online gamer cause it takes to much time out of my life to keep up the leveling and to keep up with the party. And when online games start to have loot boxes, in-game purchases and payable dlc's... It is just no more fun...

Waiting for Spiderman, Sekiro, Ghost of tsushima, ... These are the games to go for.

@rbogaert2208: Spiderman, Tomb Raider, AC: Odyssey, RDR2. There is so much good stuff coming soon that these games won't even get a look in. I should probably do the same and cancel my subscription when it lapses as it would be cheaper to purchase the games included with Plus which I play. I rarely play online either these days and the discounts for Plus members on the store are negligible these days.

After Destiny 1 I will never buy Destiny 2. But free; this is great and I will definitely try it out now. Still won't drop a cent on dlc or micros.

Just a heads up . Here they Lie isnt Actually an Exclusive VR headset title. ( even though it does say VR Required on the Box )

the game is played in first person and works completely with just a controller and without the need for a VR headset and camera.

Also if you have a 4k TV and ps4 pro the game also supports HDR which helps with the dark scenes.

Lol. Destiny 2 is always on sale for $10 for at least 2 weeks out of the month. Not a big win here.

Destiny 2 is only there because there’s an expansion around the corner. It’s a cheeky move from both Sony and activision.

I for one still won’t be touching the game with a barge pole. Everything that is wrong with gaming with microtransactions and ridiculous expansions held back from the release game is here. They stung me once, never again.

Unfortunately I already own GoW3 Remastered. I bought it a month before GoW 2018 released to brush up on the lore and gameplay.

Destiny 2 is a decent freebie. Never played it yet. Microsoft will probably have it soon after so people buy the dlc.

Bungie had to get out from under Halo, but they made a deal with the Devil (Activision) and are making crap now. They should've made 3 different games, on their 3-game contract, instead of 3 Destiny's.

Bought and platinum-ed GoW 3 remaster 2 years and 2 months ago. Never liked Destiny and could not care less about Destiny 2, but thats fine, I had no high expectations for this month since Sony already gave us amazing AAA titles like Mafia 3, Mad Max and Deus EX Mankind Divided just this year. But, unfortunatelly, in 8 or so months, no more PS3 and PS Vita games willl be for "Free" on PS Plus anymore.
