Well, we've got everything you need to know so that you can play them as early as possible.
Confirmed October 2021 PS Plus Lineup
While the lineup leaked ahead of time, as it seems to every month at the moment, it has now been officially confirmed by PlayStation. You can see the free games available this month below:
PGA Tour 2K21, Hell Let Loose, and Mortal Kombat X will all be available for free until November 1, so be sure to download them while you can.
When You Can Download the Free Games
Now, as for when you can actually download the PS Plus October 2021 games, it's nice and simple.
The free games' release time is set for midnight on October 5. However they may be a little tough to find on the PS Store initially.
It often takes until the afternoon for Sony to update the PS Plus tab in the PS store, but they'll still be free if you search for them. Just type the name of the game you want to download into the search bar, add it to your basket, and you'll then find that it's free.
PS Plus October 2021 Games Release Time
There's a short crossover period every month where two month's games are free. You just have to be ready to search for them. From midnight on Tuesday, September and October's games will be free for a short period.
If you want to learn more about the games that are free in October, you can check out their descriptions on the PlayStation Blog's reveal page.
