PS Plus free games for October include Friday the 13th and Laser League
Sony has announced the new batch of free games that will act as the Halloween treat for gamers that subscribe to Playstation Plus. And not to be left behind by Xbox Live and Microsoft, Sony is coming out swinging to try and bring more players into their games.
Friday the 13th: The Game is the big draw this month, and it’s really fitting with Halloween, given the game is horrific to play. And I mean that in a good way. The multiplayer game pits a cooperative group of friends against a single super-powered killer in a desperate quest for survival. Can you escape Camp Crystal Lake in one piece?
The other standout title for this bundle is Laser League. Laser League is a futuristic sports video game by Roll7, the creators of OlliOlli. Two teams of two or three players apiece compete to outlast their opponents by setting up moving lasers in an arena. While it has struggled to find a stable playerbase, it’s still cool to see it getting a new lease on life with an influx of fresh players.
Rounding out the list for PS3 and PS Vita are the following, some of which are also available for cross-buy with PS4:
- Master Reboot, PS3
- The Bridge, PS3 (Cross Buy with PS4 and PS Vita)
- Rocketbirds 2: Evolution, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
- 2064 Read Only Memories, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
All of these titles will be available for download next week start October 2 via Playstation Plus. You can check out a quick preview trailer for these free games down below. Seems like a pretty solid month for a more niche set of games for PS4 owners.
