It’s back to school for some of us, and a completely ordinary month for the rest of us. One thing that we all have in common this month is what freebies we’ll be playing on the PlayStation. And so without further ado, here is the next line-up of PlayStation Plus free games October 2022 available for download on Tuesday, October 4.
First, for both the PS4 and PS5, there’s Hot Wheels Unleashed, the arcade-style by Milestone. Choose a vehicle from the Hot Wheels franchise and race miniature tracks set in a home. The game includes local split-screen, online multiplayer with up to 12 players, a career mode, time trial, and a track editor.
Next, for the PS4, there’s Injustice 2, the 2017 fighting game based on the DC Universe. The roaster includes 28 playable characters, and the newly added Gear System, a loot-dropping system that rewards players with costumes and equipment.
Lastly, for the PS4, there’s Superhot, a first-person shooter developed by Superhot Team. Use guns and other weapons to take out your enemies, where time moves only when the player moves, allowing you to strategize your attack in slow motion.
All three titles in the PlayStation Plus free games October 2022 line-up have Platinum trophies to unlock.
Among these, the Platinum for Superhot is perhaps the quickest at around 20 hours of gameplay required. The game has a mixture of easy and tricky trophies, which brings the overall difficulty up to average.
The Platinum for Hot Wheels Unleashed is arguably the easiest of the three, although the time trials can be a bit challenging at times, with roughly 30 hours of gameplay required.
Injustice 2’s Platinum is of average difficulty, though requires a fair amount of time, grinding, and luck, clocking in at around 80-100 hours of gameplay.
