October’s PlayStation Plus Update Brings Bulletstorm And Resident Evil 5

[drop2]This month’s PlayStation Plus line-up has been revealed, and it’s a bit of a cracker.

First up, Plus subscribers will get Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit, which will be available tomorrow. Following that, on the 10th, is Bulletstorm, one of the most innovative shooters of late with some great ideas.


Read what we thought of Hell Yeah! right here, and our Bulletstorm review is here along with some discussion about how the game revitalised a genre desperate for a refresh.

Better still? How about Resident Evil 5 – the Gold edition, with all the DLC? Yep, that’s out on the 10th, too, and again, free for Plus subscribers. That’s one hell of a deal, pun intended. Unconvinced? Our review of that is here.

In addition, look out for some other deals during the month:

  • 3rd October: Spelunker HD – 50% off the full game and 50% off various DLC packs for two weeks
  • 10th October: Derrick the Deathfin – 30% off
  • 17th October: Dogfight 1942 – 50% off a bundle including the full game and two DLC packs
  • 24th October: Hell Yeah! Wrath of Dead Rabbit – 20% off DLC packs

And a reminder that on the 3rd Red Dead Redemption will vanish, along with Lara Croft and Saints Row 2 on the 10th, so get those quick (or just put them in your download queue) before they disappear from Plus.



  1. Damn, I need to stop bothering with buying games. Everything that appears on plus these days I bout 6 months before.

  2. Great update yet again :)

  3. No vita stuff?

    • November :).

      • Ahh my bad. Hoping it will be a good enough incentive to resub (away from ps3 atm, only have vita)

  4. Really looking forward to Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit, rented both Bulletstorm & RE5, thought they were dreadful. Good update though and will probably give RE5 another more sustained go.

  5. Good article, lucky P+ subscribers it seems.

  6. Bulletstorm just awful the online defines why I never bother with EA games terrible lag fest!

    Might download resi still never did complete it kept on running out of ammo, I don’t preserve I shoot!

    • I didn’t even get like 10 minutes in because I kept running out of ammo and dying -_-

  7. Was always tempted by bulletstorm. Now i can have it for free. No risk. Cool.
    Resi 5 is alright. Had the Gold edition and played it through with the Move. Never did play it through a second time despite having online coop.

  8. More good stuff that I’ll never play :-( My HDD is filling fast as I’m only halfway through Space Marine!

  9. Ah, i guess my 30 day freebie from Eurogamer will have to wait then!

  10. Good update. I already have Resident Evil Gold Edition, got it really cheap on the store a while back. Bulletstorm is great for me.
