After a two week delay, Sony have finally revealed the next lineup for the monthly free PlayStation Plus games, and for October, PS Plus subscribers are in for a big treat.
Firstly, DRIVECLUB has now been released, and players can pick up a free copy of the game with a limited amount of features - whilst DRIVECLUB has debuted this month, it will remain free for PS Plus subscribers forever.
The PlayStation Plus version of DRIVECLUB is fairly limited. For example, PS Plus subscribers who do not pay for the game will only get access to 10 different cars and 11 different tracks to race on. In essence, the PS Plus version of DRIVECLUB is more like an extended demo.
As for the actual October PlayStation Plus games, The PlayStation 4 has Dust: An Elysian Trail and Spelunky available for free this month.
On PlayStation 3, Batman Arkham Asylum has been put up for free, and players can also grab Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystaria. Finally, for the PS Vita, both Pix the Cat, a new intense arcade game, and Rainbow Moon, a JRPG style game, have been put up for free.
I'd say October looks like a good month for PS Plus subscribers, and if I don't get a chance to try any of the games released this month, I'll definitely be giving DRIVECLUB a go at some point. Besides DRIVECLUB, Batman Arkham Asylum may be the best offering this month, but all of the other titles are worth trying too.
