PS Plus Essential October 2022 Free Games Revealed

No Halloween games but it's a good lineup!

Sony Interactive Entertainment has recently revealed the official PS Plus Essential October 2022 free games lineup.

PS Plus Essential October 2022 Free Games Highlights

The latest lineup of free games for the month of October 2022, unfortunately, does not include anything related to Halloween, but they are quite interesting. The new lineup includes a racing game, DC characters fighting each other, and a game where stop motion is a mechanic.

PS Plus members from all three tiers can add these titles to their game library starting on Tuesday, October 4 until Monday, October 31, 2022. The lineup of games for PS Plus Extra and Premium will be announced later this month.

All Three Free Games

Hot Wheels Unleashed | PS4, PS5

Collect, build and race in this fantastic arcade sim based on the Hot Wheels universe. Earn new vehicles then take them to the track to race side by side with friends in two-player split-screen, or face up to 12 opponents in online challenges. One you’ve raced, why not try and build your own course? Create amazing layout inside and outside the track editor. Ad loops, special boosters, obstacles and special elements to make an incredible amusement park for your races, then share your creation online for other players to try. 

Injustice 2 | PS4 

The creators of Mortal Kombat return to the DC universe with the biggest superhuman roster. Select from twisted versions of iconic heroes and supervillains and bring epic-scale battles to awe-inspiring locations across the globe. Take on other players locally and online, or immerse yourself in the story-driven single player campaign as Batman struggles against Superman’s regime. You’ll earn gear after every match to equip, customize and evolve your roster. 

Superhot | PS4

Superhot VR

Blurring the lines between cautious strategy and unbridled mayhem, Superhot is the FPS in which time moves only when you move. No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It’s just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing the weapons of fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets. Superhot’s polished, minimalist visual language helps you concentrate on the most important – on the fluidity of gameplay and cinematic beauty of the fight.

These three games will be available to download starting October 4, 2022 on PS4 and PS5 consoles.
