First PlayStation Plus October Free Game Is A Big Win For Subscribers

As we approach the end of September, the question of which free games PlayStation Plus subscribers get in October looms large.


It's worth noting we won't know about the next batch of freebies officially until next week... but you might have already seen that a large amount of evidence is piling up that suggests PlayStation 5 subscribers are set to receive the World War II multiplayer shooter Hell Let Loose.

Take a look at the game in action below!



PC users have been playing Team 17's Hell Let Loose for a couple of years now, and it already boasts a dedicated community who can't speak highly enough about the game. If you've never heard of it before, Team 17 describes Hell Let Loose as a "hardcore World War II first person shooter with epic battles of 100 players with infantry, tanks, artillery, a dynamically shifting front line and a unique resource based RTS-inspired meta-game".

There are a number of reasons to strongly suspect Hell Let Loose is the PlayStation 5, which you can read all about here. All in all though, I think it'd be a fine addition to the service and a huge win for PlayStation Plus subscribers.

As a PlayStation Plus subscriber, I know it's exciting when Sony drops a free AAA game on our laps. In recent months we've had hits like Final Fantasy VII Remake, Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, and The Last Of Us. And as great as that is, there's no getting around the fact these are popular games that a lot of subscribers probably already own.


I love it when Sony works with a studio to release their brand-new game as a PlayStation Plus title. I might not like the game, but it encourages me to try out something I might normally have never considered checking out, all while helping a developer's new release reach an audience it mightn't have reached under normal circumstances.

Worst-case scenario, you don't like one of the games. You still have a handful of others to choose from. Best-case? You've found your new favourite game, and it didn't cost you a penny (outside of your subscription). Everybody wins, right?
