The PlayStation Plus free games for October 2019 were officially announced during the latest State of Play livestream today. What are the titles? The PS Plus free games October 2019 freebies are none other than The Last of Us Remastered and MLB The Show 19 will both be available to download for free for PS Plus members from October 1 through November 4.
With the big reveal for The Last of Us Part II (where the release date and new gameplay was shown) during the same livestream, the hype for the series as a whole has undoubtedly intensified. So having The Last of Us Remastered be available for free for PS Plus members is the perfect choice for this month. It will allow those who’ve played it before to re-experience it once again and let those who missed it now be able to catch up before the sequel comes out early next year.
Here’s what Sony had to say regarding both titles:
The Last of Us 2 Remastered
In anticipation of the next chapter of Naughty Dog’s epic adventure in The Last of Us Part II, now is your time to jump into in The Last of Us Remastered. Whether you have already played the game and want to relive Joel and Ellie’s epic journey – or experience it for the very first time, The Last of Us Remastered has you covered with both The Last of Us and The Last of Us: Left Behind.
The Last of Us takes place 20 years after a pandemic has radically changed civilization, where infected humans run wild and survivors kill each other for food, weapons – whatever they can get their hands on. Joel, a violent survivor, is hired to smuggle a 14 year-old girl, Ellie, out of an oppressive military quarantine zone, but what starts as a small job soon transforms into a brutal journey across the U.S.
In The Last of Us: Left Behind, new light is shed on Ellie’s relationship with Riley, her best friend and sometime-mentor from a military boarding school they grew up in together. After disappearing for weeks, Riley returns with a surprising revelation on her whereabouts. Ellie and Riley sneak out of school for the last time, leading to a series of events that will forever change both of their lives.
MLB: The Show 19
Swing for the fences in the latest edition of the popular sports franchise MLB The Show 19 from San Diego Studio (SDS) – and play the sport your way.
