PlayStation has announced the PS plus lineup of free games for October 2022. Two of the games leaked early, but this is the first time in about a year that the entire lineup hasn’t been spoiled ahead of time. All PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to claim Injustice 2, Hot Wheels Unleashed and Superhot starting October 4.
Hot Wheels Unleashed is an arcade racing game released last year to pretty solid reviews. We gave the goofy racer a 7/10 in our Hot Wheels Unleashed review. Although it can get repetitive, the racing mechanics are solid and there are plenty of tracks. You can also create your own tracks and then race online against friends. The PS5 and PS4 versions of Hot Wheels Unleashed will be available for claim.
If you haven’t played Injustice 2, You will enjoy. NetherRealm’s second entry in the DC superhero fighting game series is an absolute delight. Despite being five years old at this point, Injustice 2 still looks and plays great. It features a ton of unique content, including a wonderfully crafted story mode and a host of challenges with unique rewards. The extensive roster is bolstered by a cool upgrade and gear system that rewards players who keep playing. It earned a 9/10 in our Injustice 2 review, and it remains one of the best games in the genre over the past decade.
The range is completed by Very hot, one of the best indie games of recent years. Superhot is a first person shooter that plays like a puzzle game. Your objective is to cross each room without getting shot, and it has a very clever mechanism. Time only moves when you move, so every time you stop enemies also freeze. You have to plan your moves in advance, developing a strategy to take out the bad guys without getting hit. It’s an elegant and unique game that everyone should at least try.
Be sure to claim the September PS Plus lineup before October 4; it also includes some great games.
