PlayStation has announced the lineup of free PS plus games for October 2022. Two of the games have been leaked ahead of time, but this is the first time in about a year that the entire lineup hasn’t been spoiled ahead of time. All PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to claim Injustice 2, Hot Wheels Unleashed, and Superhot beginning October 4.
hot wheels unleashed is an arcade racing game that was released last year to pretty solid reviews. We awarded the crazy racer a 7/10 in our Hot Wheels Unleashed review. Although it can get repetitive, the racing mechanics are solid and there are plenty of tracks. You can also build your own tracks and then compete online against your friends. The PS5 and PS4 versions of Hot Wheels Unleashed will be available to claim.
if you haven’t played injustice 2, you are in luck. NetherRealm’s second entry in DC’s superhero fighting game series is an absolute delight. Even though it’s five years old at this point, Injustice 2 still looks and plays great. It features a ton of unique content, including a beautifully done story mode and a host of challenges with unique rewards. The extensive roster is further enhanced by a cool leveling and gear system that rewards players who keep playing. It scored a 9/10 in our Injustice 2 review and remains one of the best games in the genre in the last decade.
The poster is completed with super hot, one of the best independent games of recent years. Superhot is a first person shooter game that plays like a puzzle game. Your goal is to get through each room without getting shot at, and it has some very clever mechanics. Time only moves when you move, so every time you stop, enemies freeze too. You have to plan your moves in advance, developing a strategy to take out the bad guys without getting hit. It is an elegant and unique game that everyone should at least try.
Be sure to claim the September PS Plus lineup before October 4; it also includes a couple of great games.
