October is practically here and along with the new month, Sony has its usual bag of free goodies. Sony just announced their PlayStation Plus Games For October, and as expected, one of them matches the Halloween theme. The two new games are Vampyr and Need for Speed Payback. They will be made available for PS Plus members from October 6 to November 2.

Players will be able to claim the games for free and play them whenever they want, as long as they have an active PS Plus membership. Not exactly free, I know. If you haven’t already, then we highly recommend that you claim September's free games as well. You can claim Street Fighter V and PUBG: PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds right now with an active PS Plus subscription. Act fast, because they will disappear after October 5.

Below is the description of the upcoming free games, courtesy of Sony.


Life is Strange developer Dontnod Entertainment challenges you to embrace the darkness with this 1918-set, third-person action RPG with deep narrative choices. Play a doctor turned vampire ghosting through a London gripped by violence and fear. Use your supernatural abilities, as well as man-made tools and weapons to fight or flee the forces of evil and vampire hunters. Save the city’s populace or feed on them to become stronger, but giving in to your bloodlust can have grave consequences.

Need for Speed Payback

Survive thrilling heist missions, partake in metal-crunching car battles, perform dazzling setpieces, and more in this four-wheeled action blockbuster. Set in the fictional, corrupt gambler’s paradise of Fortune Valley, choose from three different characters – each with their own unique skills – customize your rides and take on an open world’s worth of events as you seek revenge on those who wronged you.

PlayStation Plus isn’t exactly the best competitor for Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass, which has undeniably been a massive success. These subscription services will play an important part in deciding who wins the upcoming console generation. Sony might have better exclusives, but Microsoft has been more consumer-friendly. That said, this month's PS Plus free games blow the October Games With Gold offerings for Xbox out of the water.
