Another month, another set of free games to get your hands on. If you're also looking for Xbox's offerings of free games this month, check out here. This month, PlayStation Plus subscribers get a great set of games, one that is of course horror themed for just after Halloween.
The first is the fantastic Nioh. Nioh currently holds an 88 rating on OpenCritic with 97% of critics recommending the game. You travel the Sengoku period of Japan to fight the horrific Yokai that plague the land. Nioh has a very engaging combat system that is obviously reminiscent of the Souls series. An armory of weapons is at your disposal too, so you can play the way you want. Of course, there's always the option of sticking to the ways of the samurai.
If you've missed out on Nioh up until now, this is a great time to give the game a shot. If not for 2017 being an absolutely amazing year for games, Nioh would easily have been a top contender for game of the year. When you're up against the likes of Breath of the Wild, well, better luck next time. Next time is just around the corner too, with Nioh 2 releasing sometime next year.
The next title offered up is Outlast II. Outlast II has a Strong rating of 75 on OpenCritic, with 60% of critics recommending the game. In Outlast II, you try to rescue your kidnapped wife from a deranged cult. While searching, you learn more about the troubled town and its insane leader. Of course, you're also just trying to survive the whole time. And yes, the classic video camera is back from the first game.
Remember, you still have a few days to pick up October's titles: The Last of Us Remastered and MLB: The Show 19.
