With all the excitement and hustle over reserving a PS5, some of us may have forgotten there are free games to be had. And so, here is the next line-up of PlayStation Plus Free Games October 2020 available for download on Tuesday, October 6.
First, there’s Need For Speed: Payback, the twenty-third installment in the Need for Speed racing series, set in the fictional open-world of Fortune Valley. Three characters are betrayed after a job of stealing limited edition cars go sour, and they’re out for some payback.
And, there’s Vampyr, a third-person action RPG set in a semi-open world London which blends factual and fictional locations. After returning from the Great War in 1918, Doctor Jonathan Reid finds himself turned into a vampire. While searching for clues to this deadly virus, he must battle vampire hunters, and decide whether or not to give in to his blood-hungry tendencies.
Both Need for Speed: Payback and Vampyr have Platinum trophies to unlock.
The Platinum for Need for Speed: Payback is of average difficulty, though a little time consuming with around 40 hours of gameplay required. There are collectibles to find, and some grinding needed to reach a REP of level 50. The game includes 4 online trophies which are easy to unlock and do not require any boosting.
The Platinum for Vampyr is a little easier and far less time consuming, which about 25 hours required. Two playthroughs are needed to unlock each of the two major endings, and a few missable trophies to watch out for.
