The lineup of free PS Plus games for October 2022 has been announced and PlayStation is bringing the heat – and it’s also the first time in about a year that we haven’t leaked the games ahead of time. Starting October 4 next month, all PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to get Hot Wheels Unleashed, Superhot and Injustice 2.
PlayStation has announced the lineup for PS plus free games for October 2022. Two of the games leaked early, but this is the first time in about a year that the entire lineup hasn’t been spoiled beforehand. All PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to claim Injustice 2, Hot Wheels Unleashed and Superhot starting October 4.
Hot Wheels Unleashed is an arcade racing game that was released last year and got some pretty solid reviews. We awarded the crazy racer a 7/10 in our Hot Wheels Unleashed review. While it can get repetitive, the race mechanics are solid and there are lots of tracks. You can also build your own tracks and then race against friends online. Both the PS5 and PS4 versions of Hot Wheels Unleashed are available to claim.
If you haven’t played yet injustice 2, you’re in for a treat. NetherRealm’s second entry in the DC superhero fighting game series is an absolute delight. Although it is currently five years old, Injustice 2 still looks and plays great. It features a ton of unique content, including a beautifully crafted story mode and a boatload of challenges with unique rewards. The vast roster is supported by a cool leveling and gear system that rewards players who keep playing. It earned a 9/10 in our Injustice 2 review and it remains one of the best games in the genre for the past decade.
The line-up is completed by super hot, one of the best indie games of recent years. Superhot is a first-person shooter that plays like a puzzle game. Your goal is to get through each room without getting shot, and it has a very smart mechanic. Time only moves when you move, so every time you stop, enemies freeze too. You have to plan your moves in advance and develop a strategy to take out the bad guys without getting hit. It is a stylish and unique game that everyone should at least try.
Make sure to claim the September PS Plus lineup before October 4; it also includes some great games.
