A new batch of free games is coming to PlayStation Plus subscribers very soon with PS Plus October, but what does this month have in store for avid PlayStation fans?
PlayStation and Xbox have been in a head-to-head battle to see who can provide the best subscription service in terms of free games. While Xbox Game Pass has now merged with EA Play (leading to a sharp drop-off for Games With Gold, some would say), PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now both keep offering high-quality titles.
With every passing month comes a whole new collection of titles, all of which are available to players for the cost of a PS Plus membership. So, without further ado, here’s everything we know about this month’s free games.
- PS Plus new games (October)
- When will PS Plus games for October be officially announced?
- How to get PS Plus games for free
The leaks were right – here’s everything coming, courtesy of the PlayStation Blog.

Team up and tackle enemy combatants online* in 50v50 skirmishes across a dynamically shifting frontline, choose one of 14 playable roles within infantry, recon, and armour unit types, each equipped with authentic weapons, vehicles, and equipment.

Mortal Kombat X – PS4
Netherrealm Studios’ bone-crunching beat ‘em up fuses cinematic presentation with an all-new gameplay experience. For the first time in the series’ history, every character in its robust roster has a selection of different fighting styles to pick from, offering an expanded range of strategies to take into battle, as well as combat against.
That’s because most of the time, the games are revealed on the last Wednesday of the month at 8:30AM PST / 11:30AM EST / 4:30PM BST / 5:30PM CEST. This month, expect an announcement on September 29.
They’re then made available on the first Tuesday of the month, so expect October’s games on Tuesday, October 5.
