The Bigger Game – Outlast 2
It’s getting closer to that time when Sony reveals exactly what two PS4 games will be included for free on PS Plus in October 2019 for those who have a PlayStation Plus membership.
In the meantime, we have a few predictions as to what exactly those two games might be based on how Sony has chosen its free games in the past.
For October 2019, it’s very likely Sony will choose a horror game for its mainline title as the company is extremely comfortable with offering scary games during the Halloween month of October in the past.
In October 2016 we had Resident Evil, October 2017 we had the Amnesia: Collection, and in October 2018 we had Friday the 13th: The Game.
Usually Sony does this for promotional purposes of the front page of the PS Store. The PS Plus free game is included on a scrolling image wheel of fun horror games to try during the scariest month of the year.
This is why we suspect Outlast 2 would be an absolute perfect choice. Its a terrifying sequel that puts you in the place of Blake Langermann, a journalist cameraman who works with his wife Lynn to uncover the mystery behind a murder deep withing the Arizona desert.
It’s a great game to play if you want to be scared, and follows in theme the types of October games Sony has favored in the past.
Not to mention that the original Outlast had already been offered for free on PS Plus way back in February 2014. Therefore, developer Red Barrel has shown it is fine with offering its games on PS Plus and that relationship with Sony has already been established.
If we don’t see Outlast 2 in the spooky month of October 2019, then we suggest to expect it sometime within the year at least.
