The October lineup of games for PlayStation Plus has been announced. Vampyr and Need for Speed: Payback will be available for free to all PlayStation Plus subscribers starting on October 6.
Need for Speed: Payback takes you through the Las Vegas streets and back alleys in an open-world arcade racer. The game is described in greater detail on the PlayStation Blog.
“Survive thrilling heist missions, partake in metal-crunching car battles, perform dazzling setpieces and more in this four-wheeled action blockbuster. Set in the fictional, corrupt gambler’s paradise of Fortune Valley, choose from three different characters – each with their own unique skills – customise your rides and take on an open world’s worth of events as you seek revenge on those who wronged you.”
The game isn’t the best in the series by any stretch, but if you’re looking for a free racing game to play around with while you wait for next-gen, Need for Speed: Payback will hold you over, probably.
As for Vampyr, this game was developed Don’t Nod Entertainment, you know, the people who bring you the Life is Strange series. Instead of a story-centric adventure game, Vampyr takes you through the Vampire filled streets of London. You can read the official description below.
“Life is Strange developer Dontnod Entertainment challenges you to embrace the darkness with this 1918-set, third-person action RPG with deep narrative choices. Play a doctor turned vampire ghosting through a London gripped by violence and fear. Use your supernatural abilities, as well as man-made tools and weapons to fight or flee the forces of evil and vampire hunters. Save the city’s populace or feed on them to become stronger, but giving in to your bloodlust can have grave consequences.”
It’s certainly worth the pick-up. These new games are exciting but also remember this means you only have a week left to pick up the September PlayStation plus games!
Street Fighter V and Playerunknown’s Battleground will be available until October 5. Once October 6 hits, they will no longer be available for free! Vampyr and Need for Speed: Payback will be free until November 2.
You don’t have to download the games, just simply add them to your library to get them for free.
