The PlayStation Plus October 2023 free games have been confirmed by Sony, and they are taking spooky season into account! Headlining the October 2023 trio of games is The Callisto Protocol, Farming Simulator 22 and Weird West. Let’s take a closer look at them all.
‘The Callisto Protocol’
The Callisto Protocol is a survival-horror game released in December 2022, developed by Striking Distance Studios and published by Krafton. It is a spiritual successor to the critically acclaimed sci-fi horror series Dead Space, with both titles directed by Glen Schofield.
The player is a starship captain whose ship crash-lands on a moon called Callisto. He is captured and imprisoned, then has to fight for survival when a mysterious disease infiltrates the prison. The game released to mixed reactions with most gamers citing severe technical issues, however, there have been recent updates and tweaks that could give this game the second chance it deserves. The voice cast for the game comprises Josh Duhamel (Transformers), Karen Fukuhara (The Boys) and Sam Witwer (Star Wars: Clone Wars & Rebels).
The first of the PlayStation Plus October 2023 free games, The Callisto Protocol will be available on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
‘Farming Simulator 22’
Farming Simulator 22 is a farming simulation video game developed and published by GIANTS Software, and it’s exactly as expected. You take on the role of a modern farmer who has the ability to farm, take care of animals, breed livestock, and grow crops. The player can build their farms in three diverse American and European environments. The game has a Metascore of 75 with generally favorable reviews.
The beauty of it all? You don’t have to wake up at the crack of dawn to complete the farming tasks! There is a multiplayer mode available, so if your mates are as into farming as you are, send them a text and start those tractors!
Farming Simulator 22 will be available on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
Weird West is an action role-playing game developed by WolfEye Studios and published by Devolver Digital, released in March 2022. It is a dark reimagining of the Wild West where everyone creates their own rules and creatures battle gun slinging cowboys!
The world is designed to be interactive and responsive to player’s actions and decisions, and be careful because the decisions cannot be undone. If your decision results in death, there will be no respawning. Weird West has a Metascore of 73, with generally positive reviews overall.
The final addition to the PlayStation Plus October 2023 free games, Weird West, will be available to PS4 users while PS5 users will be able to grab the Definitive Edition, which was developed for next-gen consoles.
