One of the very best decisions that console makers Microsoft and Sony have made, is to offer free games to those who are members of their Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus programs each month. Hundreds of dollars worth of games for free each year. It makes the pill that is having to pay to play (online) much, much easier to swallow.
The free games being offered to PlayStation Plus members for October 2018 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below.
Weâ€™re already getting into the Halloween spirit, and weâ€™ve got a great line up in store for you this month. So letâ€™s just jump right in!
First up, we have Friday the 13th: The Game. Players can take on the role of a teen counsellor or Jason Voorhees. As a teen counsellor, you and up to six other unlucky souls will do everything possible to escape and survive while a masked killer tracks you down. Survival is entirely up to the player as you either hide from Jason or work together to either escape or bring the fight to Jason. How will you play?
Next up, we have Laser League. This all new multiplayer experience is easy to pick up and incredibly fun to play. What starts out as a simple test of your reflexes becomes a strategic competition with deep team tactics. Developer Roll7 (OlliOlli series and NOT A HERO) brings their approach to a near-future competition.
This monthâ€™s PlayStation Plus lineup also includes:
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)
