I’m sure many of you are eagerly looking forward to the PS Plus Free Games for October 2021 but what are the latest rumours? When will the announcement come? Let’s break it down.
When will PS Plus Free Games for October 2021 games be announced and released?
Traditionally PlayStation Plus games have always been announced on the last Wednesday of ever month at 4.30 PM UK time with the games going live the following Tuesday morning, so for this batch of games we are looking at Wednesday 29th September. That said, Sony occasionally decide to change things up and announce them earlier or later, depending on what mood they are / what underpants they are wearing / the availability of their favourite coffee / some other reason they never reveal.
What will the PS Plus Free Games for October 2021 games be?
So far there have been no leaks or rumours, and predicting the free PS5 is rather more difficult than in previous months. We’re heading in to the Christmas period so it’s triple-A games clogging up the release schedule rather than smaller titles that Sony can give away. The only real candidate is Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania which comes on October 3rd.
Other than that, there’s Far Cry 6 on October 7th, no chance of that hitting PS Plus, or Back 4 Blood on October 12th, which also seems unlikely. However, last month they gave away an slightly older game rather than a brand PS5 title upgrade so there’s plenty of games to choose from. My money is on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
The PS4 games are likely to be older titles, the September games were Hitman 2 and Predator Hunting Grounds so it’s unlikely we will get similar games. That said, shooters are always popular and there must be a Call of Duty that has yet to appear on PS Plus. Probably.
Can I still download the September 2021 PlayStation Plus Games?
Not yet as they haven’t gone live on the PlayStation Store. The PlayStation Plus games for September are Hitman 2 and Predator: Hunting Grounds for PlayStation 4, and Overcooked! All You Can Eat as the PS5 bonus game. All the games will be available to download for PS Plus subscribers from September 7th
