PlayStation Plus Free Games November 2023

Happy Belated Halloween! Yesterday was a time of ghosts and goblins, and Sony is adding aliens to that blend of spooky horror. And so, here is the next PlayStation Plus free games November 2023 line-up which will be available for download on Tuesday, November 7.

First, there is Aliens: Fireteam Elite, the third-person shooter developed by Cold Iron Studios and released two years ago, based on the Alien film series. The game takes place 23 years after the events of the original Alien trilogy, where players select from seven different character classes and board a spaceship of Marines, off to investigate a distress call.

Next, there is Dragon Ball: The Breakers, released in 2022 by Namco Bandai, based on the hit manga/anime Dragon Ball series. Unlike other Dragon Ball titles, Dragon Ball: The Breakers plays more as an action-survival, where players must outsmart the Raider and each other to become the last person standing.

Lastly, there is Mafia 2: Definitive Edition, a remaster of the original Mafia II first released in 2010 developed by 2K Czech. The Mafia 2: Definitive Edition by Hangar 13, is a visual upgrade which also includes the three DLC stories and four packs of bonus content.

All three PlayStation Plus free games November 2023 titles have Platinum trophies to unlock. Also, only Aliens: Fireteam Elite is available for both the PS4 and PS5, while Mafia II: Definitive Edition and Dragon Ball: The Breakers is only for the PS4.

Among these, Mafia II: Definitive Edition arguably has the easiest Platinum. Although players will need to complete the story on Hard difficulty, the challenge is overall not too bad – especially for players who had already played the original Mafia II on the PS3. Expect around 25 hours of gameplay for the Platinum.

Getting the Platinum on Dragon Ball: The Breakers can be quite challenging without a group of boosting partners, but much easier if you have friends to help you out. Either way, you can still expect 60-70 hours of gameplay for this one.

Obtaining the Platinum trophy for Aliens: Fireteam Elite is both extremely challenging, and will take well over 100 hours of gameplay. Not only does it require multiple playthroughs and time to max out equipment and obtain all the kill-related trophies, but clearing the game on both Extreme and Insane difficulty is what blocks many players from earning this Platinum.

Mafia II

Mafia II is a third-person action game, and a direct sequel to Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven released in 2002 on the PS2 and Xbox. The game is set in fictional American cities during the late 40's and early 50's.

Vito Scaletta is a petty thug and son of a poor Italian immigrant who dreams of a better life. After meeting a local criminal named Joe Barbaro, the two get involved in the world of organized crime, making a name for themselves as they climb the ranks in the mafia.

Mafia II was met with positive reviews, with an average score of 81%, praised for its exciting action, engaging story, and overall fun.

If played on Hard mode, it's possible to get the majority of the trophies - if not all - in one playthrough, with some possible mopping-up afterwards via chapter select. Hard mode is not particularly difficult, nor are the majority of the trophies. Just a bit of grinding is involved.

Overall, you could probably earn this Platinum in around 20 hours or so.

If you wish to avoid more than one full playthrough, we recommend starting the game on Hard difficulty, to unlock the Tough Nut trophy. There are some story-related trophies which you'll automatically collect along the way, but for the most part, it's up to you whether to nab all the trophies during your playthrough, or simply enjoy the story and use the chapter select after.

There are three sets of collectibles to find. Playboys for the Ladies' Man trophy, wanted posters for the Card Sharp trophy, and cars for the Petrol Head trophy. Again, it's up to you whether to use one of the collectible guides in our Links page and seek these out during your initial playthrough, or wait and use the chapter select.

After finishing the game, simply use the chapter select to unlock any last remaining trophies. Be sure to check out the Mafia II trophy guide links under our Links tab for specific details on what you need.
