PS Plus Catalogue & Classics October Update features a lot of Dragon Quest, Assassin’s Creed & Yakuza

Dragon Quest XI S

Sony has revealed the September update for the PS Plus Extra & Premium game catalogues, all set to be added on Tuesday 18th October. From GTA Vice City to a whole load of Dragon Quest games, Assassin’s Creed and Yakuza, there’s a lot of big game series for you to dive into next week.

The biggest games coming to PlayStation Plus out of all of this are Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which was a hugely popular entry in the modern Assassin’s Creed series, taking player to Ancient Greece and refining the action RPG gameplay. That is joined by AC III, Syndicate and the Chronicles trilogy of side-scrolling games – note that some of these are not compatible with PS5.

Then there’s Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age, the definitive release of the huge JRPG. That’s joined by the great Dragon Quest Builders games and the musou Dragon Quest Heroes titles.

Delving into the Classic range only available on PS Plus Premium, you have the PS4 remasters of the PS3 trio of Yakuza games. Having them in the Classic Catalogue does beg the question: why is GTA Vice City in the Extra library when that game is older?

Below is the full list of games coming to PS Plus this month, but head here for the titles that are currently confirmed to be leaving PS Plus Extra & Premium in October.

What are the other PS Plus Free Monthly Games in October?

Long before the PS Plus Extra and Premium catalogue updates, we’ve had a trio of new games added to the PlayStation Plus Essential service. These include Hot Wheels Unleashed, Injustice 2 and Superhot. Find out more about October’s free monthly games here.

What actually is PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium?

The PlayStation Plus relaunch rolled out around the world in June, transforming the PS Plus we once knew into a three tiered subscription service that bundles in and expands what was once PlayStation Now. The classic PS Plus is now called PS Plus Essential, giving access to online multiplayer gaming, cloud save backups, exclusive offers and at least 2 free monthly games. PS Plus Extra then adds a catalogue of PS4 and PS5 games into the mix, while PS Plus Deluxe and Premium (depending on your region) adds older PS2, PS1 and PSP game emulation, and game streaming for PS3 and other titles.

Sony seems to be settling into a rhythm with the PS Plus monthly games for all subscribers rolling out on the first Tuesday of each month, before a library update for the Game Catalogue comes in the middle of the month two weeks later.

  1. A good selection this month then, with just a couple of issues.

    Having some of the (extra tier) games not playable on the PS5 is terrible. You would think Sony would make sure everything they add is playable on their newest console. But I guess that’s down to Ubisoft, as it’s their games that are the problem.

    And why that “definitive” version of Dragon Age XI? Isn’t that a port of the Switch version that doesn’t look as good as the existing PS4 version?

    And didn’t we already have GTA: Vice City before? I’m sure anyone who tried it in the final days of PS Now isn’t begging for it to come back
