November’s Free PS Plus Games: Nioh and Outlast 2

Fight ancient demons in feudal Japan and struggle against a deranged cult in rural America.

Prepare for the fight of your life next month as you lock swords with otherworldly evil in brutal action-RPG Nioh, and struggle for survival in tense psychological horror Outlast 2 – both joining the PS Plus monthly games lineup on November 5.

Let’s take a closer look:

Nioh

Nioh is a visceral, action-driven adventure where you must hone your skills, upgrade your weapons and demonstrate perseverance and mastery in besting some of ancient Japan’s fiercest demons. Travel to the blood-soaked Sengoku period and take on the role of an embattled outsider as you fight to liberate a guardian spirit from the clutches of a power-hungry sorcerer.

Wielding swords, spears, shuriken, bows, rifles, powerful elemental magic and more, shape yourself into an unstoppable samurai warrior. Develop new skills, find ever more powerful armor and perfect your playstyle as you explore overrun towns, brooding caves and abandoned harbors.

Outlast 2

Immerse yourself in a desperate fight for survival in an isolated rural community as you attempt to rescue your kidnapped wife from the clutches of a deranged cult. Having narrowly escaped death in a helicopter crash, set out into the rundown village of Temple Gate and do your best to avoid its crazed inhabitants as you fight to locate your partner.

Haunted by your troubled past, look for answers as you uncover the ever more disturbing secrets lurking beneath the town and the twisted ambitions of its charismatic leader.

Both Nioh and Outlast 2 are available to download from PlayStation Store between November 5 and December 3.

In the meantime, you still have a few days left to pick up October’s PlayStation Plus titles, which includes The Last of Us Remastered and MLB: The Show 19. Both games are available to download until November 4.

  • Awesome. Don’t have either of these games yet.

    • Nioh has an 88 on metacritic by 100 raters. The rating is justified by this near classic title that should be in everyone’s collection. The graphics are beautiful and the gameplay system mechanisms are fitting after getting used to it. The boss battles are challenging, which is why many state the difficulty. While frustrating at times it’s fun and addictive gameplay. It’s rewarding and a skills based control system. You dodge, use your shield or step back from predictable attacks balanced by a stamina bar. Sony did a great job providing opportunities for those who have not had a chance to play. Also I’m interested in trying Outlast 2. A great selection this month.

    • AfraidToFightMe

      I have Nioh but Outlast 2 is a nice addition.

    • EL_JEFE_FRIJOL

      Awesome! 2 games I returned to gamestop a couple days after purchasing, what about enter the gungeon, or a turn based rpg? Game pass enabled me to fill up my xbox one with games I can play nonstop, why cant sony do that? Atleast 2 games i’d beat, I remember when they gave away swindle, that game was great. I’ve yet to find more than a small handful of good ps4 games

  • Nioh is fantastic! Great addition

  • Mercenary09

    Man another great lineup. Nice to see the team realize that when a sequel is coming up it’s smart to throw the first one on PS Plus. The Nioh 2 beta is this month too so perfect timing.

  • Why in Spain and Portugal give a game more? Strikers Edge

  • iamtylerdurden1

    Wow those are great additions. PS+ has been on fire lately.

    • On fire with mlb lul?

    • TheGorillaKilla

      @kralanil1 Yes it was, MLB The Show is a great series. Just because you don’t play it doesn’t mean it’s not good.

  • Not bad!

  • boychik0830

    Not a huge fan of nioh because of the difficulty and I haven’t played outlast 2 before. I may not have wanted outlast 2 but at least it’s not a sports game, visual novel or a walking simulator. Hopefully the games will be better next month.

    • SpyderMonkey0066

      Lmao. Because of the difficulty? Really? Hahahaha

    • If difficult is a problem you should be ok with a sport game, visual novel or a walking simulator, right?

    • Nioh is easier than dark souls. Maybe you just dont like action rpg genre?

  • Not interested in Outlast tbh, but Nioh is very loved game I just hoped is not at as unfair as I felt The Surge (1) was.

    • Not sure what you mean by unfair but I assure you Nioh is harder than The Surge.

    • I finished BB and DS3 along with other soulsborne game but The Surge felt like it did little sense to me to amount of challenge early on, I tried but couldn’t enjoy it.
      If Nioh is harder then I think I’ll pass, I already have challenges in life…

    • TheGorillaKilla

      @zirocrath Me either. Never understood why The Surge was so liked, controls felt janky as hell and sometimes unnecessary (That hop move by flicking the right thumbstick up was so useless and forgettable)

    • Some of the earlier boss feels difficult for me since our protag still didn’t have access to potent ninjutsu (magic). But it’s still fair game. When you do unlock the potent skill though, it became a cakewalk. Unless until you enter NG+/DLC area.

  • Time to go buy some brown pants and adult diapers!

  • Outlast 2 un buen juego de survival horror y Nioh nunca lo e jugado pero dicen que es buen juego con solo ver los comentarios de la gente me dan ganas de jugarlo

  • Outlast 1 is good, was actually thinkin’ of buying the sequel. I’m glad it’s free. Don’t know f’all bout nioh but I’ll give it a good play anyways. Nice line up, still, would like to see some vr content.

  • Woohoo! I’d contemplate buying Outlast every time it went on sell but always talk myself out of it. Been curious of Nioh because it reminds me a lot of Onimusha.
    Onimusha 5 for PS5 please!?! Sony. Capcom. Make it happen!

  • Another Soulsbourne style game and a run and hide horror game….. DISAPPOINTED!!! Let’s hope Sony will make up for this on PS Now games next month.

    • SolidZone26

      Still better than Xbox’s Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter and The Final Station. Assuming you like games like these trash.

  • I was going to buy Outlast 2 just last week, pleased I didn’t. Two games Iv never played

  • thenthomwaslike

    Great lineup this month!

  • AmericanSamurai1

    Great month, Outlast 2 would have been a great October game

  • Great Month. Will get to NIOH someday.

  • GeraltOfRiv_CA

    Does Nioh come with all DLCs, or is it just the base game ?

    • Look at the cover…come on man they would’ve said if it was the Complete Edition.It’s just the base game.Hopefully they put the DLCs on sale.

    • Mercenary09

      It would say complete edition if it came with the DLC. More than likely they’ll run a sale on them thought while it’s free. They usually do that.

  • Wow, I just bought Nioh yesterday, no joke. Been enjoying the hell out of it tho, so no regrets here.

    • I believe you can get a refund when this happens. I’ve heard of some people that were successful. Just contact Sony.

  • Great lineup…although I want Nioh in disc it’s a great game and having digital for free is always welcome.Outlast 2 though ha that’s something to put a smile on ma face cuz it’s one of those games I want but don’t really wanna pay for it unless really cheap,not a horror fan too so yep great choice.Good one Sony…good way to make up for the horrible thing that was october’s lineup.

  • Been playing Nioh as my goto game for the last few months. Tried Outlast a while back and couldn’t get into it. May give it another try.

  • Shoot. Looks like I might have to renew this month :D

  • Wow! Another great month. I was really looking to buy Outlast 2. Nioh, I have it in the collection but to hard for me… :))
    Great job with ps+ team. Keep it up!

  • tonydamiani

    Nice lineup!

  • LastofFireflies

    I love Nioh design, but environment coloring is dull and unexciting. Some areas are too yellow

  • I mean, can’t win them all. Nioh is a great addition but, outlast 2 is meh. I personally, don’t like games where you have to run.

    • If you dont run, how do you go from point A to point B….

      Running > Walking

    • SidNightwalker

      I think he means games where it’s impossible to fight, LOL. Yeah most of them are really awful too. The Outlast games are fine though.

  • Im very excited about this line up. I won’t play outlast 2 just because it’s spooky unless a friend is there with me, but Nioh looks great and can’t wait to play it when I get a chance. I won’t play a game like the SoulsBorne series unless it’s free just because I was too overwhelmed with the difficulty. I know Nioh is difficult, but being free makes it worth it to try.

  • Great job PlayStation! Love the titles this month!

  • TheSickestTurtle

    Played Nioh on PC and had a good time. PSN trophies just might be my excuse to play through again. Not into Outlast though. Love horror games, but this is just an irritating game of hide and seek in the dark.

  • UnleashTheCASEY

    These look like great games, just maybe not my cup of tea this month. I’ll add them to the backlog. It would be nice if a game has $20+ if DLC, maybe add it to a discount or something.

  • Another good month for sure, but nothing for me unfortunately. I have Nioh (although I stopped playing it about 5-7 hours in), and Outlast isn’t really my type of game.

    I’m just happy the quality is staying high for these PS+ offerings – keep it going!

  • aragaomaichel

    I liked see free in ps Plus mgs phanton pain, street Collection, AC Odyssey tia ver well

  • codawsniper11

    Call Of Duty Black Ops 3 for December Please

  • BattleToadGX

    This is a great lineup, I’m very excited to play outlast 2 and Nioh. Since I beat outlast 1, I can finally play the sequel of the game.

  • Machiavelli007

    Darksiders 3 was the last new game I got from PS+, but I still applaud them for giving out AAA titles.

  • LEFT__4__DEAD__2

    I am so excited to try these, i have Outlast and Nioh 2 Beta, these will be fun

  • Just bought outlast 2 cause it’s on sale as part of the Halloween Sale… why put it on sale the week before it goes free…

  • I hope PlayStation isn’t cutting back on quality and quantity games for fan’s that pay to be Plus. Usually we get to find out what the new games are going to be a week before. The reason I say this is that Nioh 2 is a beta, so it is going to come to an end soon when released. So that’s one free game down. Also the new games for November weren’t front and center, like their past releases. Sony PlayStation is still showing the banner for the free games in October.Go figure?? I hope I’m wrong.

    • SidNightwalker

      They really want to highlight those VR games that almost nobody cares about, I noticed.

  • SidNightwalker

    Nioh is quite the excellent choice. About time, damn.

  • Werewolf-124

    Just wandering is the Free November games free yet it said 11:00 am but they are not there

  • Still missing the Nioh :(
    Where is it?

  • a day later and still only see october’s games… where are the november ones?

  • – both joining the PS Plus monthly games lineup on November 5.

  • Looks decent .. .. like the show as a change of pace

  • Would be great if you could add links to these free game updates.
