Playstation Plus October Update - DriveClub and more

296
Found 1st Oct 2014
The October offers on Playstation Plus look like they are the best ever for PS4 owners.

This months update includes a free version of DriveClub !!
OK, free but cut down, you still get to try out 10 cars across 11 tracks.

Using CD Keys (and FB Like), you can also upgrade to the full version of DriveClub for less than £30 - not at all bad for a premium next gen title at launch !

PS3 owners get Batman Arkham Asylum.
Dust (PS4) and Spelunky (all platforms) are both excellent indy games and well worth a download to try out.

Also, some good things said about Rainbow Moon (PS3/Vita) so all in, one of the better months and definitely the best PS4 month yet,

Here is the full line up of games announced today that will be available from next week, Wednesday 8 October:

Entering PS Plus:
8th October: Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3)
8th / 10th October: DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition (PS4)
8th October: Dust: An Elysian Tail (PS4)
8th October: Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara (PS3)
8th October: Pix the Cat (PS Vita/PS4 Cross Buy)
8th October: Rainbow Moon (PS Vita/PS3 Cross Buy)
8th October: Spelunky (PS4/PS3/PS Vita Cross Buy)

Leaving PS Plus:

So, like a demo... >_>

No.

Rubbish Indie games, boring.

Rainbow Moon, Spelunky and AA are the best there.

Shame I have them already.

Jazzer94

No.



OK so sort of like a demo, couple of tracks, cars, etc.

WOW?

Really.

DriveClub, yes, the rest? Nnnhhh.

Dust is also pretty good from what i hear !

Guess Drive Club is the only decent game. Batman is a weird choice as it's 5 years old but better a old good game than a recent crap one I guess .I don't know what Dungeons & Dragons PS3 is but it looks like one of the worst games I've seen.

My PS+ ends come December but I don't think I'll be in any rush to renew it the way it has gone & I've had it since the start.

Its more like Gran Turismo Prologue. A lot more options than a Demo with a reduced upgrade option to the full version. I believe CD Keys had a very cheap option for the Upgrade code.

Awful month.

Driveclub could be viewed as a demo but it does contain ALL the features of the game but with a choice of only 10 cars and 11 tracks.

Not bad for free though and you can upgrade to the full version, if you like it, for £30.99 using a PSN card from CD keys

Not bad for one of most anticipated and awaited games on the PS4.

Arkham Asylum is also good for PS3 owners and Spelunky is great on the Vita

Pix the Cat? Horrible, that's good as a flash game on the internet, free for a reason...

4 games for PS4 this month will do me. Old cheap PC games but good ones aswell as Drive Club. No complaints.

Say what you like, this is garbage, i have yet to download a PS PLUS free game to my PS4 due to them all being rubbish games made in somebody's basement. Drive club will be the first, but i knew about that months ago.

there's no wow factor

Cheaper than that with the 5% off code aswell, works out about £28.99 which for a full game is not bad. Whether the features etc make it worth that i will find out from the ps+ demo

Well I'm happy! Rainbow moon will be perfect on my hour breaks at uni!

Driveclub (albeit a trimmed down version) was announced as free PS Plus title last year at launch, so this was expected.

Heh looks like my wishes were granted, I was hoping for some golden oldies over meh new games, so AA will do me. I hope they keep that up.

How would you know if you haven't downloaded them or played them ?

Point taken

PS plus is steadily getting worse. was Arkham city not free a few months ago.

If you use the upgrade ps+ preorder do you own the game(no ps+ required) as the description I read late last night made it sound like you still need ps+ to use it.

You own the game. PS+ required for online multiplayer.

A demo doesn't have trophies and certainly doesn't allow you to get the platinum from the game. This PS+ version does.

Yea, how dare they give us free games, we have to play them after all!

Surprised at dust being in there. GREAT game, put a few hours into it on the 360 before i sold it, wqs hoping for unjustice but dust and driveclub this month for me are two great games for ps plus. If you havent played dust you are in for a treat it's a big enough game with tons of side quests and fun to play

Why do they always give crappy Vita games. Since Uncharted and Gravity. I haven't come across a good Vita game. Always some crappy indie game that isn't worth anyone's time. Arkham Asylum should be good and DriveClub.

These PS3 PS Plus offerings are starting to feel like Microsoft's Games with Gold games. Asylum is pretty old. Surely most subscribers have played, traded or bought it dirt cheap themselves by now?

Please explain how you can get a platinum with only 11 tracks and 10 cars.

That's a superb update in my mind - Spelunky and Rainbow Moon in particular are great to see in there. For those who don't already own it, Arkham Asylum for PS3 is pretty much a mustp-play!
