PlayStation Plus subscribers will get access to two spooky games this November: Team Ninja’s samurai action role-playing game Nioh and first-person horror adventure Outlast 2. Both PlayStation 4 games will be available as part of PlayStation Plus starting Nov. 5.

Nioh’s arrival on PlayStation Plus comes alongside a beta test for the sequel, Nioh 2. It’s a good chance to catch up on the Sengoku-era adventures of the samurai William, who [checks notes] likes to throw ghost sharks at his enemies. The tough-as-nails action-RPG from Team Ninja was originally released in 2017.

Outlast 2 sends players to an isolated rural community of Temple Gate where they’ll “attempt to rescue your kidnapped wife from the clutches of a deranged cult” and the town’s “crazed inhabitants.”

Nioh and Outlast 2 will be available to download via PlayStation Plus from Nov. 5 to Dec. 3. October’s PlayStation Plus games, The Last of Us Remastered and MLB The Show 19, are available to download through Nov. 5.
