PS Plus vs. Xbox Games With Gold: Which Free Games Are Better (October 2018)?
Sony PS Plus
It’s spooky season, so no wonder the PS Plus headline freebie on PS4 this month is Friday the 13th. If you’ve not played it before, don’t let talk of falling player counts and so so review scores fool you into thinking this isn’t worth playing. Friday the 13th is awesome fun; it’s one the best multiplayer experiences we’ve had in years. Sure, there were server issues and bugs aplenty, but it’s a real blast to experience with buddies. There’s a palpable tension when you’re in the midst of a great game, and playing Jason is great fun, too.
Elsewhere, there’s another multiplayer experience to try. Laser League might not look much at first glance, but this an innovative title that offers a different sort of multiplayer gameplay. That old adage, “easy to play, hard to master” has never felt more appropriate. Laser League is super simple to pick up, but there’s actually a ton of depth that gives it genuine esports caliber. It just needs more players, so now is your chance.
It’s another cracking month for PS4 owners who can take advantage of the cross buy function for PS Vita and PS3 titles. The Bridge, Rocketbirds 2, and 2064 Read Only Memories are three titles that can be played across their original system or PS4. The latter, in particular, is certainly worth trying. 2064 Read Only Memories earned critical acclaim for its unique story-telling and unique cyberpunk aesthetic.
There’s even titles for VR and Playlink players this month, with Here They Lie adding another horror experience for those wanting to scare themselves this Halloween. Knowledge is Power is a fun little trivia game available on Playlink.
Bonus content for H1Z1 arrives for PS Plus owners in the form of the Blueshift Pack, too, which adds the Blue AR-15 schematic, Pro Gamer Hoodie, and Marine Blue Offroader.
