Thus far, PlayStation Plus subscribers have seen some pretty big additions to their free game library. This past month alone provided Batman: Arkham Knight and Darksiders III. But they haven’t seen anything yet, as October will bring two massive AAA releases that you shouldn’t miss.
Announced during today’s State of Play broadcast, Sony confirmed MLB the Show 19 is downloadable for all fans for October for free. This baseball sim has been a massive hit since its release earlier this year. By offering it as a freebie in time for the World Series is an impressive move on Sony’s part. And fans will be able to experience the full game, updates and all. It’ll be available starting on Oct. 1, all the way through Halloween.
But that’s not all. To celebrate the recently announced release date (Feb. 21!) of The Last of Us Part II, Sony has the original The Last of Us Remastered available to download for October. It’s the other big title available for the month. With this game, players will be able to experience where Joel and Ellie’s adventure began, in razor-sharp HD with a beautiful frame rate. Of course, they’ll have no time to take in the sights, as they’ll need to fight against both human and inhuman enemies alike, all in the name of survival. Like MLB, it’ll be available for free for the month.
It’s great to see Sony stack on the PlayStation 4 hits with its PlayStation Plus program, giving gamers yet another reason to subscribe to the service. The question is what will you play first?
