The PlayStation Plus October 2017 free game lineup includes something you might have heard of.
Sometimes, the freebies you get with your subscription – be that PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live – are obscurities, trinkets and curios that might otherwise have passed you by.
And sometimes, they contain whacking great names, the sorts of games that would shift consoles, never mind their monthly subscription services.
This month is definitely the latter.
The PlayStation Plus October 2017 free games includes Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Hideo Kojima’s Konami swansong, and (to our knowledge) one of the only games that lets you abduct men, vehicles and farmyard animals with miniature hot air balloons.
Also included is the Amnesia: Collection, which includes the first game and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture developer The Chinese Room’s interesting yet flawed follow-up.
Oh, and Sony are still determined to push That’s You, for some reason.Not only it it in this month’s PS Plus games, it’s also been included as a code in every game we’ve bought for the last two months. What did we do to upset you, Sony? Why do you hate us? What do we have to do to make it go away?
