Another month of PS Plus is on the way, and it'll be the last full month ahead of PS5.

Here are the games we expect (or hope) to see this month.

PS Plus October Release and Reveal Dates

Mark your calendars for 6 October, for the next batch of free games, but remember, that we may well hear what games they are before the date itself!

Sony does seemingly enjoy building some hype around the titles within the week building up - so expect to hear the games around Wednesday, 30 September!

PS Plus Predictions October 2020

So the best way to predict is always to take a look at what's come before! So let's quickly recap what we've seen so far.

Last month we saw two huge titles feature. PUBG, the incredibly popular battle royale, and the iconic Steet Fighter V.

What can we expect this month?

Well, predicting a pattern with PS Plus is always a little tricky. Take a look below for the year's releases so far, and see for yourself!

AprilUncharted 4: A Thief's EndDirt Rally 2.0
MarchShadow of the ColossusSonic Forces
FebruaryBioshock: The CollectionSims 4Firewall Zero Hour
JanuaryUncharted: The Nathan Drake CollectionGoat Simulator

When it comes to genres, we've seen a whole lot of different combinations, ranging from sims to FPS, all the way to US Sports and action-adventure titles.

To date, the genres have actually been fairly well balanced, which makes it tougher to predict this month,

But if we had to go with something, we'd say we're in for a first-person shooter and an indie game. And since October is the month of Halloween - may be at least one horror!

Resident Evil VII - Biohazard

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is an incredible horror experience, and has to be played to be believed.

MEET THE FAMILY: Resident Evil 7: Biohazard brings the player into the grasp of a dangerous and terrifying family

Super scary, super intense, and also seemingly inspired by some of the classic horror films out there too, such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

There are moments in the game which stick with you (whether that be for the right or wrong reasons) and it's definitely not for everyone, but for those who enjoy the rush - this a must-play.


We could maybe end up seeing this showstopper. It's a hugely popular and beautiful game, where you traverse a mysterious land on a quest to simply reach the top of a mountain.


It's dramatic, dynamic, and a real showcase of what indie games can do, and has gone down as one of the iconic games of PS4.
