Sony has announced the seven new games coming to PlayStation Plus in October.

Following this week’s Xbox Games with Gold announcement, Sony has revealed the seven free games available to PlayStation Plus subscribers in October.

Leading the lineup is Roll7’s high-speed future sports game, Laser League. After spending a year in early access, the game was released in May to positive reviews. Hopefully a stint as a free PS Plus title will top up the player base, and bolster its community for some time to come.


It’s joined by IllFonic’s enjoyable video game adaptation of Friday the 13th, and the PlayLink quiz game, Knowledge is Power. Ty Taylor’s perspective bending puzzler, The Bridge, is another highlight, and available to download on all three PlayStation platforms.

Next month’s lineup will be available to download from October 2, 2018. Here’s the full lineup.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
