PS Plus October 2022 Free Games: A car can be seen racing along a beach

Dakar Desert Rally (PS5, PS4) – Essential

Launching on the day the PS Plus games go live, we think Dakar Desert Rally would make a great game for people to get their hands on. With complete multiplayer and single-player offerings, the game takes you across an off-road rally racing adventure in motorcycles, quads, SSVs, and more.

With more than 30 stages from the official 2020, 2021, and 2022 Dakar Rally races and officially licensed vehicles Dakar Desert Rally Racing should offer a pretty unique and interesting experience for racers.

PS Plus October 2022 Free Games: The characters of Scarlet Nexus can be seen standing with a city behind them

Scarlet Nexus (PS4) – Essential

A brand new IP from Bandai Namco, Scarlet Nexus was released last year to positive reception and blends unique cyberpunk powers and telekinetic abilities with a vast cityscape to explore.

While we doubt both the PS5 and PS4 versions will be on offer, Scarlet Nexus would make a great time-sink before November arrives with a bunch of new big games.

PS Plus October 2022 Free Games: Multiple players can be seen playing Tetris

Tetris Effect: Connected (PS4, PSVR) – Essential

Tetris Effect Connected closes out our list as our pick from Extra and Premium that will be made available to everyone. Expanding the amazing Tetris Effect experience, the free update complete with multiplayer brings the full experience together.

Whether you want to play alone or compete online, Tetris Effect is a critically-acclaimed game and one that would be a huge boost to this month’s PS Plus lineup.
