Greetings, PlayStation Nation. We’ve got some big news for October’s PlayStation Plus free games update.

First up, we have the blockbuster hit Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain. The epic Metal Gear series picks up nine years after the events of MGSV: Ground Zeroes and the fall of Mother Base. An epic game for PS Plus members to replay again, or to check out for the very first time.

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.

PlayStation Plus: October 2017

The PlayStation Plus games this month include:

  • Monster Jam Battlegrounds, PS3
  • Hustle Kings, PS3
  • Hue, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
  • Sky Force Anniversary, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4 & PS3)

As a reminder, That’s You! is leaving PlayStation Plus on October 24. This crowd pleaser PlayLink game is guaranteed to liven up any party. Gather up your closest friends and download it today* for an amazing time!

Also, we’re celebrating PlayStation VR’s one year anniversary in October. To commemorate, the PlayStation Store is offering a ton of games at great discounts. Check the PS Store October 10 for more details. Don’t forget that RIGS Mechanized Combat League is free for all PS Plus members until November 7, so download it now if you haven’t done so already.

Want to try the new turn-based-strategy collectible card game from the makers of SMITE and Paladins? As a PlayStation Plus member, you’ll get access to the Hand of the Gods Closed Beta, starting Oct. 17! Even better, you’ll get the Hand of the Gods Plus Pack, containing a Galactic Invader Leader Skin for Ah Puch, a card back and player icon, and five Core Packs to get your divine deck started. This is available to all members until November 14.

Lastly, we have two great PS Plus specials you can buy right now. Get 30% off on both Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age & Titanfall 2: Ultimate Edition, now through October 3.

Great lineup this month, PlayStation! I’ve been looking for a new horror game to sink my teeth into.

I hate when I just bought all the free games like a month before they’re announced. I also didn’t have to buy Just Cause 3 or Infamous Second Son, but I’m happy for all the gamers who got them for free hahaha.

When does the phone app update? Still shows free games for September and is charging for the October games.


October 3rd, 10:22 am

It advertises amnesia as free but when I go into it, it says that I have to buy it. I have PS Plus, what’s the deal?

I’m having trouble downloading the free games of the month…my PS Store is charging me for them…anyone else facing this problem? How can I fix it?

    Same issue here. Checked the phone app and it’s the same on there. Only 2 of the games are showing up as “+FREE”.

I got to say, what the heck Sony!? It’s all well and fine that MGS: The Phantom Pain is showing as Free as it should but what is up with the rest of the games? Did some lackie forget to change the rest of them on the list over to free like they were supposed to be?


October 3rd, 11:15 am

MGS and Amnesia are now free.

It’s a shame that corporations get away with false advertisements. The picture on the Playstation dashboard CLEARLY shows Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience as one of the games we get free, but you are only giving us The Phantom Pain. I know 3 people personally, that subscribed to PS Plus SPECIFICALLY because of the Definitive Version… Needless to say, they are all pretty ****ed off. Someone should hold you people accountable.

    Tokin I think you really should look again because it doesnt say Metal Gear Solid V: Definitive Experience on here anywhere plus they already gave away Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes 2 years ago for free

Um.. why does New Zealand only have four of the six games? We have no Hustle King or Amnesia? WTF Sony?
