The next batch of PS Plus games from PlayStation is almost here and we finally have a leak to talk about. It’s a little later than usual, but it’s still a leak. The games in October 2021 were solid, but will next month’s selection live up to expectations? Everything you need to know is here, including the latest leaks.
LEAKS – Four of the six games were leaked
The latest PS Plus leak suggests that the following titles will be available for free in the next few weeks:
- Knockout City (PS5)
- First class problem (PS5)
- Kingdoms of Amalur: Recalculation (PS4)
- The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners (PSVR)
However, it is worth taking this with a pinch of salt. This leak suggests two free PS5 games, something we don’t normally get, and it’s incomplete. As the tweet above says, we expect two more PSVR games in November 2021.
Is the announcement late for this month?
We mentioned and bewitched the possibility of a state-of-play presentation. Another PlayStation presentation – specifically a state of play on third-party titles – will air on the same day as the PS Plus announcement in November 2021.
That could mean the next PS Plus announcement will be postponed by 24 hours – unless we get PS Plus game updates during the November 2021 presentation. Anyway, it’s unlikely to be before the state of Play presentation will be announced.
However, you can tune in to this program at the following times:
- 2:00 p.m. Oct. 27 PST
- 7:00 p.m. October 27th EST
- 22:00 October 27th BST
After that, the next PS Plus announcement is expected at the revised date:
- 8:30 am Oct 28 PST
- 11:30 am October 28th EST
- 4:30 p.m. October 28th BST
ANNOUNCEMENT – When will we find out what we’re getting?
UPDATE: This is an outdated forecast based on the previous months – without a presentation of the current status on the same day.
PlayStation follows a rough schedule when they announce their PS Plus games each month – unless there’s an upcoming presentation on the status of the game, we should see PlayStation make the PS Plus announcement for November 2021 at the following times:
- 8:30 am Oct 27 PST
- 11:30 am October 27th EST
- 16:30 October 27th BST
PS Plus Announcement – November 2021
You’ll need to tune in to PlayStation on Twitter – or other social media platforms – to receive the announcement. They always appear on the last Wednesday of the month and about a week before the games are available.
RELEASE – When will you replace the October games?
With that in mind … after the PS Plus announcement in November 2021, when will we get access to the next batch of free PlayStation games?
Well … These are always published on the first Tuesday of the month, unless it lands on the first of the month. Fortunately, November 2nd is the first Tuesday of the month – this is also the fate if the PS Plus games are due to go out of service in October.
That means we should see the free PlayStation games available from the following times:
- 3:00 am Nov 2nd PST
- 6:00 am November 2nd EST
- 11:00 November 2nd BST
PS Plus games release date November 2021
Hell Let Loose, PGA 2K21, and Mortal Kombat X aren’t bad, but PlayStation can do better … right?
PREDICTION – What do we get?
Every month PlayStation releases at least one PS5 title and two PS4 titles for free as part of its PS Plus promotion. It’s like Games With Gold, but a little better. With that in mind, we think we might get …
Metro Exodus (PS5)
The third Metro game is by far the most extensive game and the first to be updated exclusively for next-generation consoles. Artyom is back for yet another battle with Russia’s post-apocalyptic horrors of the 2030s. This time, however, he is leaving the Moscow Metro and venturing out into the world beyond. It’s a blockbuster experience that should keep you busy.
METRO EXODUS – Are you ready to face this post-apocalyptic horror?
Gran Turismo Sport (PS4 and PSVR)
Gran Turismo Sport may be a legacy racing title, but with Gran Turismo 7 still out in 2022, this could be the perfect time for PlayStation to win over the racing fans out there with a free start to the newest GT title. With all add-ons there are over 300 vehicles to try out and over 80 routes. There is a lot to do with this.
GRAN TURISMO SPORT – It’s time to go fast … Very fast.
Alien Isolation (PS4)
Ridley Scott’s Aliens series is by far one of the best sci-fi horror series, and Alien Isolation is a game that captures the tense survival situations of the original films well. The Xenomorph AI is unique in the way it chases you and you can easily get lost in this atmospheric experience.
ALIEN INSULATION – Nobody in space can hear you … Yeah, okay.
PSVR BONUS – Happy 5th Anniversary, PSVR!
PlayStation’s own PSVR turns five – soon. To celebrate PSVR’s 5th anniversary, PlayStation is throwing three more PSVR games into the PS Plus announcement in November 2021.
As you can see below, many of the big hitters are specially named. We don’t know which PSVR titles we will get, but if it is one of the following we will be delighted.
