PlayStation Plus Games for October 2022 Announced

Sony has revealed that the PlayStation Plus games for October 2022 are Hot Wheels Unleashes, Injustice 2, and Superhot. Announced on the PlayStation Blog, all three titles will be available to download for all PlayStation Plus subscribers from October 4.

Hot Wheels Unleashed brings the zany, over-the-top driving action of Hot Wheels to the PS4 and PS5, with an arcade sim based on the Hot Wheels universe. Collect, build, and race your favorite Hot Wheels cars, then jump into split-screen two-player with a friend to face off with your newest vehicles.

There’s a 12-player online mode, too, not to mention the ability to create your own tracks and share them online for others to play.

IGN’s Hot Wheels Unleashed review gave the game 9/10 and said: “Fun, fast, and damn near photorealistic at times, Hot Wheels Unleashed is a surprising and brilliant arcade racer. Carefully detailed, highly customizable, and buoyantly uncynical, this toy racer defies all expectations with remarkable attention to detail, excellent track design, and an accessible handling model that still rewards high skill. The racing may be tiny but make no mistake: this game is enormous fun.”

Injustice 2

A fighting game from the makers of Mortal Kombat, Injustice 2 brings the heavy-hitting superheroes and villains from the DC universe to the PS4 for an action-packed beat-em-up. Following on from the original game, Injustice 2 continues its story, allowing players to jump in as Batman, Superman, and a number of other classic DC heroes and villains to take on a range of colorful foes.

The single-player campaign charts the struggle of Batman as he fights against Superman’s evil regime while online play lets you jump straight in and smash the faces of DC’s most iconic characters.

IGN’s Injustice 2 review gave the game 9/10 and said: “Injustice 2’s fights improve on Gods Among Us in nearly every way, specifically addressing fan concerns about movement speed and giving you new ways to burn meter. Visually, the DC roll call shines even as they star in a flat and unnecessarily grim story. The unrivaled amount of single-player content to explore, especially the highlight Multiverse mode, and the height of Injustice 2’s skill ceiling make it an easy environment in which to lose hours of your day without ever even challenging another human… or giant telekinetic gorilla, as it were.”

Super hot

A unique FPS that lets you slow down time, Superhot really has to be experienced. Blurring the lines between reality and gaming, Superhot puts you in the hot seat as a fictionalized version of yourself accessing a new leaked video game – superhot.exe.

Booting it up puts you in the hot seat, tasked with taking down oncoming waves of enemies by any means necessary. Grab a gun? Sure, that’s easy… but try taking out three men in slow-mo with only an ashtray. Superhot puts an innovative twist on the FPS formula, and will definitely leave you saying “Superhot is the most innovative shooter I’ve played in years!”

IGN’s Superhot review gave it 7.5/10 and said: “Superhot’s clever time-manipulation idea delivers consistently fulfilling challenges by turning blink-of-an-eye action into carefully considered and cautious tactical decisions. It avoids potential one-hit death frustration with quick respawns and deaths that always feel earned and avoidable in hindsight. Its unique brand of puzzles are complemented by simplistic but helpfully high-contrast art and sound design, yet undermined by a tedious, intrusive story and a reluctance to put new game-changing spins on its ideas to extend their lives.”

These three new games will be available on PlayStation Plus until October 31, while last month’s games, Need for Speed ​​Heat, Granblue Fantasy: Versus, and Toem, will be available until October 3.
