The PlayStation Plus free games lineup for October 2022 is live now, and it includes some amazing games. Hot Wheels Unleashed, Injustice 2, and Superhot are all free this month, so make sure you snag them in time. It’s an eclectic mix and one of the better months we’ve had in a while.
Hot Wheels Unleashed is an arcade racing game that was released last year with solid reviews. You can also build your own tracks and then race online against friends. Both the PS5 and PS4 versions of Hot Wheels Unleashed will be available to claim.
If you haven’t played Injustice 2, you’re in for a treat. NetherRealm’s second entry in the DC superhero fighting game series is an absolute delight. Even though it’s five years old at this point, Injustice 2 still looks and plays great. It features a ton of unique content, including a wonderfully made story mode and a boatload of challenges with unique rewards. The expansive roster is bolstered by a cool leveling and gear system that rewards players who keep playing. It earned a 9/10 in our Injustice 2 review, and it remains one of the best games in the genre over the past decade.
The lineup is rounded out by Superhot, one of the best indie games in recent years. Superhot is a first-person shooter that plays like a puzzle game. Your objective is to get through each room without getting shot, and it features a very clever mechanic. Time only moves when you move, so each time you stop, enemies freeze, too. You have to plan your moves ahead of time, developing a strategy to take out the bad guys without getting hit. It’s a stylish and unique game that everyone should at least try.
Available October 4-November 1
