PlayStation Plus October Games Include Injustice 2, Superhot & Hot Wheels Unleashed

Sony has announced their next slate of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers coming in October. From Tuesday, October 4 PS Plus members will be able to add the following three titles to their game library:

  • Superhot (PS4)
  • Injustice 2 (PS4)
  • Hot Wheels Unleashed (PS4 & PS5)

As a reminder, these games will be available to all subscribers regardless of whether you subscribe to the ‘Essential’, ‘Extra’, or ‘Premium’ tier.

Superhot is arguably the pick of the bunch, a first-person shooter with a genre-bending twist where time moves only when you move. It’s a classic so well worth that space on your hdd. Elsewhere, Injustice 2 is well worth a visit if you’re a fan of fighting games, especially those with that distinctively violent NetherRealm flavour. Last but by no means least, there’s Hot Wheels Unleashed which is (as you may have guessed) a racing game. We’ve not tried it ourselves, but it yielded decent enough reviews when it launched a few years back, and looks suitably different enough from most other arcade racers to be worth a look.

If you want to know more about each title and get a preview of what to expect, keep reading. Otherwise, make sure you don’t forget to download the existing PS Plus titles before they swap over on October 4.

Superhot | PS4

Blurring the lines between cautious strategy and unbridled mayhem, Superhot is the FPS in which time moves only when you move. No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It’s just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing the weapons of fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets. Superhot’s polished, minimalist visual language helps you concentrate on the most important – on the fluidity of gameplay and cinematic beauty of the fight.

Injustice 2 | PS4 

The creators of Mortal Kombat return to the DC universe with the biggest superhuman roster. Select from twisted versions of iconic heroes and supervillains and bring epic-scale battles to awe-inspiring locations across the globe. Take on other players locally and online, or immerse yourself in the story-driven single player campaign as Batman struggles against Superman’s regime. You’ll earn gear after every match to equip, customize and evolve your roster.

Hot Wheels Unleashed | PS4, PS5 

Collect, build and race in this fantastic arcade sim based on the Hot Wheels universe. Earn new vehicles then take them to the track to race side by side with friends in two-player split-screen, or face up to 12 opponents in online challenges. One you’ve raced, why not try and build your own course? Create amazing layout inside and outside the track editor. Ad loops, special boosters, obstacles and special elements to make an incredible amusement park for your races, then share your creation online for other players to try.
