October's lineup of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers will bring the hard-as-nails platformer Super Meat Boy and the delightful old-school adventure game Broken Age to PlayStation 4 owners, Sony announced today.
PS4 users will also be able to download Grip Games' Unmechanical: Extended, which will be available on PlayStation 3 as well. Three other PS3 games will be free in October: Frima Studio's Chariot, Zen Studios' KickBeat and Neko Entertainment's Kung Fu Rabbit. And along with Team Meat's Super Meat Boy and Double Fine Productions' Broken Age, Vita-owning Plus subscribers will get KickBeat and Kung Fu Rabbit.
All six titles will be available free starting next Tuesday, Oct. 6. The date represents the launch of Super Meat Boy on PS4 and Vita; the ports were announced this past June.
Sony also announced that the free PlayStation Plus Edition of Evolution Studios' DriveClub will disappear from PlayStation Plus the same day. Interested parties who haven't yet downloaded the game or added it to their library must do so before Oct. 6. DriveClub PlayStation Plus Edition was released just over three months ago on June 25; it was originally scheduled to debut alongside DriveClub last October, but was delayed due to severe network issues with the game.
We've reached out to Sony for a statement on the departure of DriveClub from PlayStation Plus, and will update this article with any information we receive.
