The next trio of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers is in. From October 5, subscribers can get Mortal Kombat X, new title Hell Let Loose and PGA Tour 2K21 for free. You can do so until November 1, when a new set of games will be cycled in. That means you have a few more days to download the September free games, which include Hitman 2.
You’re missingto play PS4 and PS5 games online, but the service has evolved to be much more than a fee for online games. For $ 10 a month or $ 60 a year (meaning you get a 50% discount if you opt for an annual membership), subscribers get an evolving list of discounts and most importantly access to free games. Usually Sony offers three free games a month.
It’s far from it, the subscription service with over a hundred titles, which Microsoft is building around, but there are some great deals to find, especially if you keep an eye on the monthly selection of free games. Once you have downloaded them, you keep these games for as long as you want – they do not expire after the month is over.
PS5 owners also get free access to the PlayStation Plus Collection, a set of classic PS4 games.
October 2021’s free games
October’s free games are Mortal Kombat X, Hell Let Loose and PGA Tour 2K21. PlayStation Plus subscribers can download them for free between October 4th and November 1st.
Mortal Kombat X (PS4)
Mortal Kombat X is not the latest game in the franchise – 2019’s Mortal Kombat 11 came after – but it’s one of the best. Mortal Kombat X was released in 2015 to widespread praise, with critics praising its history, character design and deep gameplay. In fact, GameSpot said it had “the best fighting mechanics in any game in the series” until that time. Note: This game is already available for free download for PS5 owners in the PlayStation Plus collection.
Mortal Kombat X usually sells.
Hell Let Loose (PS5)
If you’ve never heard of Hell Let Loose before, it’s because it’s a brand new game – at least on PlayStation 5. Originally funded via Kickstarter and then released on PC in 2019, this Battle Royale game will debut on PS5 and Xbox Series X | S on October 5th. It’s a World War II shooter that puts you in 50-on-50 team battles on either the Western Front, pitting Germans against Americans, or the Eastern Front, where the Germans take on the Soviets.
PGA Tour 2K21 (PS4)
PGA Tour 2K21 is the latest golf simulator – so if you’re looking for a golf simulator, this is it. PGA Tour 2K21 is developed by 2K and delivers a “wonderful golf sim that gets closer to the real thing”, according to GameSpots Steven Petite.

September 2021’s free game
September free games are still available a few more days, but they return to their usual prices on October 5th.
Hitman was restarted in 2016 and it is without a doubt the best series has ever been. Hitman 2 is the second of three new Hitman games that put you in the shoes of Agent 47 as you navigate vast, complex levels to hit your target. It’s a game about killing people – but thoughtfully, more about trial and error than running and gunning, It got an 8/10 score from GameSpot, our sister site, at the release in 2018.

Overcooked: All you can eat
Overcooked is the perfect game for PlayStation Plus because it’s always convenient to have on hand. Do you need something to thoughtlessly pick up and play? Overcooked. Do you have friends? Overcooked. All You Can Eat has over 200 levels from both Overcooked and Overcooked 2 plus DLC content. It’s very overcooked and it’s free in September.

Predator hunting grounds
Full disclosure: Predator Hunting Grounds is not a great game. It’s a multiplayer game where you play as either one of four military officers trying to complete various tactical objectives in the jungle, or as the predator trying to chase them all one by one. Critics found the game overwhelming, but with a $ 0 price tag for September, big fans of the 1987 blockbuster can play with hunting or hunting.
