Sony Interactive Entertainment has revealed the free PlayStation Plus games PS4 players can look forward to downloading for free for the month of October 2020. More specifically, PlayStation has revealed that starting on October 5, PS4 players can download both Vampyr and Need for Speed: Payback for free. As always, both games are 100 percent free, but only for PlayStation Plus subscribers. If you’re not a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you can still play both games, but you will need to fork over their current asking price.
Further, as long as you remain an active subscriber to PS Plus, you can play both games as much as you want, whenever you want, for as long as PlayStation Plus remains a thing. However, if your subscription lapses, you will lose access to every game you’ve accumulated through the service, and you won’t be able to access them until you subscribe back up or purchase them outright.
Below, you can read more about both games, as well as check out trailers for each title:
Vampyr: “London, 1918. You are newly-turned Vampyr Dr. Jonathan Reid. As a doctor, you must find a cure to save the city’s flu-ravaged citizens. As a Vampyr, you are cursed to feed on those you vowed to heal. Will you embrace the monster within? Survive and fight against Vampyr hunters, undead skals, and other supernatural creatures. Use your unholy powers to manipulate and delve into the lives of those around you, to decide who will be your next victim. Struggle to live with your decisions… your actions will save or doom London.”
Need for Speed: Payback: “Set in the underworld of Fortune Valley, you and your crew were divided by betrayal and reunited by revenge to take down The House, a nefarious cartel that rules the city’s casinos, criminals and cops. In this corrupt gambler’s paradise, the stakes are high and The House always wins. Craft unique rides with deeper performance and visual customization than ever before. Push them to the limit when you narrowly escape the heat in epic cop battles. From insane heist missions to devastating car battles to jaw-dropping set piece moments, Need for Speed Payback delivers an edge-of-your-seat, adrenaline-fueled action-driving fantasy.”
