It’s a little hard to believe it’s already October 2021. We’re in the last quarter of the year—Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other winter holidays rapidly approaching—and 2022 is a lot closer than it seems. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Today is the last day you have to claim the September 2021 free PS Plus games before they leave the service. Overcooked! All You Can Eat for PlayStation 5, and Hitman 2 and Predator: Hunting Grounds for PS4 are all leaving PS Plus tomorrow, October 5th, with three new games will coming in to take their place.
Overcooked! All You Can Eat is a is the PS5 collection of the PS4 title. The next-gen version launched last year with the launch of the PS5, later coming to PS4. Plus Subscribers can get the next-gen version free for one more day. Hitman 2 and Predator: Hunting Grounds both grace PS4 owners, and PS5 players can get the enhanced Hitman 2 experience be redeeming the game and then importing it into Hitman 3, yes, even the free trial version! But make sure to redeem them before tomorrow replaces these games.
Remember that you don’t have to download the PS Plus free games in order to redeem the titles for the month. You also don’t need to own a PS5 to add them all to your library. If you still haven’t purchased the next-gen console, make sure to add all of the titles, including the PS5 ones, to your library anyway via the browser-based PlayStation Store in order to build up a collection of PS5 games ready to play. As long as you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription, you’ll have access to your full library of free games for both PS4 and PS5 whenever you do pick up Sony’s next-gen platform.
The October 2021 free PS Plus games include the Hell Let Loose for PlayStation 5, and PGA Tour 2K21 and Mortal Kombat X for PS4. The PlayStation Plus free games for October 2021 go live on Tuesday, October 5th. All three games will be available to redeem until the November 2021 free PS Plus games go live on November 2.
Before those new games go live however, don’t forget to add the September 2021 free PS Plus games to your library now!
