PlayStation Plus October Offers: Free Costume Quest and Discounts Galore

Grace Chen's Avatar Posted by Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

PlayStation Plus October 2011

It’s another good month to be a PlayStation Plus subscriber with some amazing free games and discounts for October! Leading things off is Costume Quest; Double Fine Productions’ stand-out adventure RPG where your Halloween costumes act as conduits to become a force to be reckoned with! With charmingly hilarious characters and story, you’ll want to snag this one soon as it will be available free from Plus for two weeks starting October 4th.

New release Elemental Monster is also available free for Plus subscribers starting October 4th and going through the month. Build your deck (featuring the stunning illustrations of Yoshitaka Amano), and battle online to determine who’s got the best tactics. At the same time you can enhance your game with seven different Booster Boxes, available at 50% off ($2.50) for Plus subscribers.

Action RPG fans, keep your eyes out for new release Dungeon Defenders later this month. Plus subscribers will be able to get access to free DLC for this awesome blend of Tower Defense and co-op action! The DLC will grant you access to 4 ‘familiars’ in the game that will help you in your adventure. Warhawk and Starhawk fans also take note; the original Warhawk PSone Classic is available for free as well. Relive old memories and see the roots of the Warhawk franchise; then prepare to have your mind blown when Starhawk drops in 2012.

This month, we’ll also be rolling out a ton of discounts across the network, including special day one discounts for all titles featured in the Only On PSN event! Get all eight exclusive PSN titles at 20% off during their first week launch, and enjoy the experiences you can only get on PSN, at a price that can’t be beat. The PSN release of Resident Evil 5 will also be sporting a 25% discount for one week, while other PSN titles like Explodemon! and Tales from Space: About a Blob will have their own set of discounts throughout the month.

There’s a ton more, including a to-be-announced SEGA title that will have added benefit for Plus subscribers, as well as new Full Game Trials like Dead Space, Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One, and Homefront, to name a few. Check out the entire breakdown below and leave your comments below. For more discussion, head to the Official PlayStation Plus Update thread in the PS forums.

Middle of the day and still nothing, used to be early, why are you guys slowing down on the delivery time for the ps plus stuff?

eyevee-exex said:

October 4th, 11:00 am

@#107 Not everyone has played them, so they are trying to get new people to go out and buy a copy of the old games (ofcourse a new copy, not used, wouldn’t want to run into an issue with online, or give gamestop any real money.)

Since its October, I’m surprise Siren: Blood Curse is not an discount games. Since that game been on PSN since it first launch. Any chance this game will be given a discount to PLUS user and / or price drop?

    There’s plenty more on the way; now’s a great time to rejoin =)

Being a PlayStation Plus member just keeps getting better and better. Thank you so much and keep it up.

I do have a few suggestions though. It may be asking too much but I thought about it. Is it possible for you guys to have PlayStation Plus members get more and bigger discounts on DLC as well as more free DLC as it launches?

    I think last time we did this was with Killzone 3 DLC, and that was pretty well received. It’s tough for a publisher / developer to ‘give away’ their DLC since this is often an important part of their game’s release, but it’s something we can look into.

eyevee-exex said:

Anyone else notice, no street smarts? otherwise, yay!

DJ-307 said:

PS2 CLASSICS! Thank you so much Sony, I’ve always wanted to play PS2 games on my Slim. Can you tell me what PS2 titles you plan to release? PLEASE!

DJ-307 said:

October 4th, 4:08 pm

If you guys go to the link next to the mystery game from Sega they have a contest and if you guess the game correctly they give you a free copy via code only on PSN. Mr.Bunny will give you an audio hint that should sound farmilar to anone who owns a Saturn. ROLLLLLING STAAAAAAAAAAAAART!!!!!

Elemental Monster Online Card Game Booster Box DLC – 50% off

Insane… just bought booster box, might buy another.

I urge those that like card games to download this game. I bought it last week and absolutely love it.

Elvick_ said:

October 4th, 6:42 pm

Sweet, I can check out Warhawk’s original game.


October 5th, 2:47 am

It has an address where I can see when it lasts until the signature PLUS PSN?

I joined PS+ late september as it was my birthday and I must say. What an investment! Altered beast and plants vs zombies and now costume quest. :D these alone have been worth the membership. One suggestion. Online passes for games such as white knight chronicles, resistance 3, etc should atleast have discounts on them, since i do tend to favour pre-owned games.

What are the plans for upcoming ps2 games on psn? FF12?

The shamless plugs for the fail known as “Plus” are laughable.

sevendust1987 said:

October 5th, 1:21 pm

To all the haters of Playstation plus….It’s kinda funny to read these blog post comments and see things like “I will not fall for it” or “Plus sucks” or anything to that effect I mean seriously if ya think about it the discounts we as plus subscriber received DAY 1 on the HD remasters of RE4 and RE CV last month totaled $20 that’s almost half the subscription price right there!!! This month Costume Quest FREE!!!! there’s another 15 right there so now were at 45 throw in warhawk and your over 50 right there. I mean it’s a no brainer guys. Now some may argue that I mixed discounts with “free” and that’s fine my example is comprised of things that matter to me but there is still a TON more content out there to be had. Anyone who isn’t on the “PLUS” side of things is missing out.

DJ-307 said:

October 5th, 1:37 pm

For the people who hate PS+, why do you even come on this site. What, you just want to make rude comments? I don’t like Xbox 360 and you don’t see me on their website making random comments. I’m just saying.

DJ-307 said:

October 5th, 1:40 pm

Hey Morgan, here’s a suggestion. Can you guys at Sony add more online save space? and what PS2 classics are coming out?

Grace Chen's Avatar

Morgan Haro said:

October 5th, 2:36 pm

I’ve noted the suggestion for more online save space; from other, thank you! Of course, no guarantees that this will happen, but I’m noting the suggestion. As far as PS2 Classics; we’ll announce those as they are released.

Yes it’s just lovely to see people come to the coming to Plus space and be haters simply because they don’t have it makes being a Plus member that more better.SMH@ you Pirate

rockinjs864 said:

October 7th, 5:16 am

Oh yea morgan what’s going on with street smarts ?I’ve seen it on the blog for the past two weeks but still not in store

driftersgonewild said:

October 7th, 1:58 pm

I’m sorry if this sounds like a noobish question but ive only been a ps+ member since a month before the recent downed severs. What games and discounts have i missed out on prior to that? Is their a forum or a site that has all the past downloads posted in order by release date or something? If so maybe ive missed it but if not i would like to see that. I would go back and purchase all those titles just to stay current with ps+. I recently upgraded my hdd to a 720gb so i know i can handle storage space, I swear its not an addiction lol! just a hobby….hehe.

In the ‘Full Game Trials’ selection, I see that “Dead Space Digital” is going to be available on 10/18. What is this exactly? I mean, I know the games Dead Space, DS Ignition, DS Extraction and DS2. Is this the same as DS1? Only PSN Downloadable? Or is it a different content title all together?

Journey Demo?!!!! PLEASE !

October 9th, 9:07 am

I can’t wait to get Playstation Plus in Decemeber :) also i have a few suggestions for PS Plus users

1.Changing PSN ID Free anytime meaning i’m thinking of wanting to change mine but can’t yet at all
2. Being able to get rid of PS3 games we don’t have or rented before for the people who like having 100% trophies
3. Also if discounts on Full Playstation Plus Retail games, i know there is the free full trailer but i’m talking about after like 25 or 35% discount :D

Also when is the video preview thing being available to all PSN Members?

Also sorry if the PSN ID change has already been suggested

CabooseFan91 said:

Full Trail*

Bird99 said:

October 11th, 7:53 pm

Thank you for giving us Costume Quest for free. I planned on buying it around the first of October, but getting it free pretty much made the cost of Plus worth it by just getting this one game.

bonxo8480 said:

October 11th, 9:29 pm

Am i missing something, it says lost planet avatars are free and they are listed for 2 bucks, and where are the holloween themed avatars for the 11th update? I also don’t see Street smarts anywhere.

Ritiel_ said:

Free Avatars Resident Evil Code Veronica 5 Avatar Bundle – 10/11
