PlayStation Plus monthly October 2022 games revealed

The PlayStation Plus Essential monthly games have been revealed and it’s fair to say that it’s going to be a hot month for superhero fans.

Furthermore, this month’s PS Plus Essential offerings have a little something for everyone.

We have a toy car-inspired racer that takes us back to our childhood, one of the most critically acclaimed indie games ever as well as a top-tier fighter inspired by one of the DC Universe’s most popular stories.

PS Plus Essential October 2022 games include:

  • Hot Wheels Unleashed (PS4/PS5)
  • Superhot (PS4)
  • Injustice 2 (PS4)

In terms of critical reception, Hot Wheels Unleashed has a Metacritic average of around the mid-70s.

Superhot has an average of around the mid-80s, while Injustice 2 scores among the high-80s. So it’s quite a solid month all around.

All three October 2022 PS Plus Essential games will become available to download on Tuesday, October 4.

This, of course, means that at that come October 4, the PS Plus Essential games for September 2022 will no longer be available to claim.

Therefore, if you do want to claim the likes of Need for Speed: Heat (PS4), Granblue Fantasy Versus (PS4) as well as Toem (PS5), you might want to do so now, before they’re gone.
