October’s lineup of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers consists of a game featuring actual lineups, MLB The Show 19, and the PlayStation 4 remaster of The Last of Us, Sony announced Tuesday during its State of Play show.
MLB The Show is developed by SIE San Diego Studio, which releases a new iteration of the simulation baseball game just before the regular season every March. Now, PlayStation Plus customers will be able to walk out onto the field just as MLB postseason action kicks into gear.
It will be the first time that the MLB The Show series has been available via the subscription service, and Sony is offering free in-game content to anyone for anyone who logs in during the month of October: five free packs for the trading card mode, Diamond Dynasty, including a guaranteed Diamond-level player.
The other free game for October is Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Remastered. The post-apocalyptic action game debuted on PlayStation 3 in June 2013, and Naughty Dog ported it to PS4 in July 2014. It’s a great time to revisit a modern classic, since the studio also announced Tuesday that the sequel, The Last of Us Part 2, is scheduled to be released Feb. 21, 2020.
Both The Last of Us Remastered and MLB The Show 19 will be available free on PlayStation Plus from Oct. 1 to Nov. 4. In the meantime, the September games — Batman: Arkham Knight and Darksiders 3 — are still available.
