Next, we have Amnesia: Collection, which contains both The Dark Descent and A Machine for Pigs. Start this one up at night with the lights off — if you’re feeling brave.

Finally, now THIS is what I call a lineup (even though I already own MGS). Got MGSV, Amnesia, Hustle Kings, Sky force…. If you guys can deliver this kinda quality every month youd be back to where you were on the PS3 days.

    What are you talking about finally they been putting great free games out for months what are you on

September 27th, 12:31 pm

I’m really glad that Sony decided to include at least 1 AAA game a month in their PS Plus lineups instead having nothing but indie game this and indie game that. Hopefully, it will stay that way.

Oh man, Xmas came early!!! Can’t wait to give myself night terrors with Amnesia!

D-Squad3 said:

September 27th, 1:26 pm

Wow 2nd Son now MGV? Keep them rolling. This is how it should have always been.

Jackal888 said:

September 27th, 1:43 pm

Nice selection. Sky Force, MGSV, Hustle Kings. I am very excited.

Armisrael said:

September 27th, 1:43 pm

Kept you waiting, huh?

Very impresive!, I Did´nt expect that quality on PS PLUS games, I´m glad be a PS member, but i already have MSGV on ps3 and ps4 xD,but to all the other PS+ member, just enjoy! It´s a good time to give a chance to The Phantom Pain

Amnesia is´nt bad either, It´s a very good month indeed.

Metal Gear Solid V YEEESSSSS!!!

clupula668 said:

September 27th, 2:28 pm

I have MGSV and Amnesia Collection, but this is still a very nice month. Just wish MGSV was actually complete, but that’s all on Konami.

Justin__Harris said:

September 27th, 2:47 pm

Great offerings, although I do feel that Metal Gear Solid V despite being a great AAA title isn’t the best considering how well the game sold. I mean, who doesn’t have this game already, is all I’m saying.

AlmightyStarfire said:

September 27th, 3:16 pm


I actually grinned and out loud said “No F-ing way” when I saw the lineup.

MGS5? HELL YEAH! Without doubt the best game on plus since I bought my PS4. Brilliant game that I’ve spent a fair few hours with but never got round to buying for myself. Can’t wait to get into it.

Amnesia I’ve never played but I know people rave about it and I’ve been told to play it on a number of occasions. Excited to give it a go!

Thank you Sony gods! ^_^

mikotop1012 said:

September 27th, 3:20 pm

Great game! I bought it on my PC and PS4 both before though. But I really hope the free game for PS+ be PS4 exclusive only.

SheSaidSheSaid said:

September 27th, 3:44 pm

Please don’t overlook Hue, guys. It’s an amazing game, really relaxing and beautiful puzzle platformer.

    GWalcott said:

    September 27th, 6:34 pm

    When I’m done with MGSV I’ll check it out

waleednagaty said:

September 27th, 4:37 pm

Where is PS4 Games this month?

    waleednagaty said:

    September 27th, 5:01 pm

    Sorry I found it.

NekoRave said:

September 27th, 5:32 pm

I already own all these games and last month games, could I get a selection of games for free XD

Just kidding, great lineup with MGS V and Amnesia.

Hue is a great game as well, glad its free for members to enjoy

Athior13 said:

September 27th, 6:00 pm

Much better. September has been garbotrash.

XRainnyX said:

September 27th, 6:02 pm

got them all already but i have to say it, great month
hope you guys enjoy this selection, because it’s top notch

Albert_June said:

September 27th, 6:19 pm

Great !! But Playstation, You Have To Decrease The Prices, A Lot Of People Didn’t Have The Money To Pay The Currently Prices And I Think That Everybody Should Be Able To Have Once !!!

Straygaen91 said:

September 27th, 6:19 pm

Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain, of all games?? Yeeeeeee I love you Sony :D :3

GWalcott said:

September 27th, 6:32 pm

MGSV The Phantom Pain? That must be a typo. They probably meant to say Ground Zeroes.

    Spi3000 said:

    September 27th, 9:17 pm

    Nope, Ground Zeroes already had it’s Freebie Run with PS+ about… 2 years ago maybe more. And unless there was a time when PS3 and/or Vita has given a game a second chance as a Freebie with PS+, then there is zero chance of this being a typo.

Gilly-Galad said:

September 27th, 7:30 pm

THIS IS FU****G BS. An old game a game, and one i purchased for 15$ damn it sony, im gonna leave and never put food in you families mouths again.

SidNightwalker said:

September 27th, 8:32 pm

You satisfied many of the unthinking, mindless drones this month, so good job, I guess. Excellent work not caring in the slightest about anyone who did buy a Vita, BTW, it really shows what you have become. You make Microsoft just look better and better, which is a truly amazing accomplishment. Bravo.

Spi3000 said:

September 27th, 9:13 pm

Welp… looks like I can’t give myself an excuse to not get Phantom Pain next month.

No really, for the longest time, I straight up refused to purchase Phantom Pain as much as I wanted to play it. Reason why, I didn’t want to give Konami my money. I think by saying that, many already have a good idea my reason why. But without giving a long speech, I’ll just say this. Konami lost my trust as a consumer. Trust I doubt they’ll ever get back. They would have to do something beyond extraordinary to even get me to actually buy one of their published games in the future. Because let me tell you, the wounds of 2015 have not healed. Again, many have an idea what I’m talking about and many are likely in the same boat as me. So with that said I’m excited that this will be free so I can experience Kojima’s last Metal Gear title.

    mattblood221 said:

    September 29th, 12:07 am

    I totally agree its messed up what they did to Kojima I know I will be getting his game brand new so I can support him

Box9Missingo said:

September 27th, 10:09 pm

Hustle Kings is around the only one I’m really interested in. Got to try it out via PS Now and liked it ok. The rest are ok enough.

Thank you for amnesia. I’m glad I didn’t buy it.
Please work harder on the ps3 titles, as they are not comparable to the ps4 titles.

kingfigher102 said:

September 28th, 4:16 am

Yeah,not bad.

SackO_oBoy-_- said:

September 28th, 4:28 am

I guess I’m not renewing my membership since October’s lineup is full of obscure games no one wanted to play

    sergio12681 said:

    September 29th, 12:09 pm

    Actually amnesia is an amazing and scary game

OnTheBus666 said:

September 28th, 4:43 am

Nice I love mgsv and now I get a free digital upgrade! Thanks Sony!!!

emanuelfernan694 said:

September 28th, 7:25 am

nice, the only ps plus games i enjoyed so far was until dawn and infamous second son, but to think two weeks ago i was going to buy MGS V definitive edition but instead i bought MK X and now i am getting phantom pain for free is awesome, not buyning the definitive edition might have been a waste anyway, cause i saw a lot of videos saying ground zero and online is trash

emanuelfernan694 said:

September 28th, 7:36 am

NICE, the only games i’ve enjoyed so far from ps plus are second son and until dawn, to think i was going to buy MGS V definitive edition two weeks back but instead i bought MK X and now i am getting phantom pain for free is awesome, glad i did not buy the definitive edition, saw a lot of ppl saying the online and grond zero isnt worth it ,.. THANK YOU PS PLUS

    Welmosca said:

    September 28th, 12:33 pm

    Hmm Ground Zeroes may be super short but its a prequel to Phantom Pain so yeah its worth it.Plus gave it for free some time ago though so…

Ayxlv said:

September 28th, 8:27 am

This is awesome I always wanted to play Phantom Pain but never got the chance to.

steeler192 said:

September 28th, 9:27 am

I thought we were going to get Child Of Light this month, since Japan got it in July and Europe got it last month. I was definitely not expecting Phantom Pain…

Way to over-deliver, Sony! Hats off to you!

Welmosca said:

September 28th, 12:31 pm

Monster Jam is trash but damn this may be the best lineup of 2017,can’t believe y’all are giving Phantom Pain.Whiners can’t say s*** with these lineups ha nice job shutting their traps Sony.

I for one am happy about Amnesia…perfect choice for a Plus offer,really glad with Hue too game looks great and also Hustle Kings I always wanted to try it.Nice that we’re getting the games that were supposed to be on september’s lineup.

AmAzInG_M0NK3YS said:

September 28th, 12:47 pm

Great titles, can’t wait to play MGS5. Could the PlayStation team possibly have the first Watch dogs for November? That would be awesome to play for the first time for me. Ps plus is a good investment I’ll be sure to tell my friends. Keep up the good work!!! Thanks!!!

    mattblood221 said:

    September 29th, 12:12 am

    I will tell you now I played both of them & the Second is by far the better of the two

eliyahu9 said:

September 28th, 2:39 pm

Look like its time for me to return to PS+

jmac161 said:

September 28th, 2:50 pm

I just brought metal gear solid 5 on psn full price I’m shock that it’s free now

RRODRI64 said:

September 28th, 8:03 pm

I’m pretty sure we got Sky Force a couple months ago

    tsari said:

    September 28th, 10:33 pm

    There was a mix-up where they announce this line-up as last month’s line-up. I’ve downloaded every free psplus game for the last year and a half and I can confidently say this one is new to psplus free games.

Machi_Mavz said:

September 28th, 8:27 pm

More Power! PS+

great line up! ^_^

bipolarcow said:

September 28th, 9:18 pm

MGS5 fails on story and does not respect your time. Most game time wasted exploring an empty base, exploring a barren empty open world, riding a helicopter to your mission, driving a vehicle to your mission and then finally arriving at the mission 15 minutes after you selected to play the mission. Granted once you arrive, the gameplay is exquisite, but even the superlative play is hampered by repetition of playing the same missions over and over ad nauseam.

half baked.

tsari said:

September 28th, 10:31 pm

Now I see why the fuzz up happened last month. Someone accidentally was a month off on their information. Or was this lineup decided because people cried out about not getting those games? Either way, looking forward to it, this past month was a total bust with me spending roughly an hour between all the available games.

nevets_sdoow said:

September 29th, 2:02 am

I already have both MGSV and The Amnesia Collection so these freebies don’t really help me out much personally. But, dang, this is a shockingly cool lineup nevertheless. Here I was already sorta amazed that we got Infamous Second Son this month. I didn’t think that would’ve been topped so soon. That’s awesome. Still, though… tragic for me on a personal level. But I’m happy for everyone else. lol

The_Davidi4 said:

September 29th, 4:15 am

PS plus is on fire. Only since last month I ended regretting that Im paying for PS plus. When we got Infamous Second Son I was really surprised, it is a great game. But this month just killing it. Amnesia and Metal Gear Solid is something we never had. Now Im not only happy Im having PS plus But also I am proud of myself I have it. Hell yes

    The_Davidi4 said:

    September 29th, 4:21 am

    Oh yeah Until Dawn was a great offer from PS plus too. Love it

sergio12681 said:

September 29th, 12:06 pm

Be free to correct me if I’m wrong but is there not many games with a good campaign on ps plus

z5244888 said:

September 29th, 6:28 pm

Sweet, continuing good line-ups. 4 or 5 great months in a row. Thanks Sony :)

TallMist said:

September 29th, 9:40 pm

I have to say, I’m excited. I played Ground Zeroes and was a little disappointed by the short length of it, but from what I’ve seen and heard of MGSV, I’ve been really eager to play it. However, given how many other titles I’ve been looking forward to more, this game has always been a bit lower on the list of games to get. Definitely happy about this. And, while I HATE horror games, I might just get Amnesia just to get it. Good title choices. :)

The-BillyBell said:

September 30th, 9:23 am

When sony makes the games i own, free for plus, it makes me proud. But please, don’t stalk my account anymore… Give me sth fresh;)

abhirajcb said:

October 1st, 3:45 pm

The Amnesia collection says only two Dark descent and Machine for Pigs, what about the third one Justine?! Will it void the platinum as such.

emmanuel8323 said:

October 1st, 5:42 pm

They are pretty good games. But I’ve already beat and traded most of these games back in. Lol

marcin_ke said:

October 1st, 8:55 pm

That’s a solid line up. Well done Sony!

budgier said:

October 2nd, 1:54 pm

Can’t wait to try out MGS4 :)
