PlayStation recently announced the October PlayStation Plus lineup, which includes Injustice 2, Superhot, and Hot Wheels Unleashed. These games will be available on the platform on October 4.
First of all, Injustice 2 is a fighting game featuring characters from the DC universe. The game won accolades for its story, which highlights Batman and his attempts to rebuild society after the vents of the first Injustice.
The roster includes 38 characters in total, 28 included in the base game 10 additional characters available as downloadable content. Some of the non-DC characters that are playable fights in Injustice 2 include Sub-Zero and Raiden from Mortal Kombat and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. You can upgrade individual characters with better gear, increase stats, and create unique playstyles.
Superhot is an indie first person shooter where time freezes when the player is not moving. This creates an interesting mix of planning, shooting, and dodging. The visuals are minimalist, with featureless red enemies and black poly weapons. The game has since been released for VR and received a standalone expansion titled Superhot: Mind Control Delete.
At the top of the month, Hot Wheels Unleashed, a racing game developed by Milestone. Offering a fun twist on classic racing games, Hot Wheels Unleashed puts you behind the wheel of a toy car, hence the name. The rails are a mix between plastic rails and full-size household parts.
The additional track building mode takes you back to your childhood, allowing you to create your own custom tracks to race on. The cars don’t have realistic physics, allowing you to drift, jump, and boost as you please. Hot Wheels Unleashed still sells for a premium, making it an attractive pick-up in October.
These games will be available to download from October 4 and will be available for the rest of the month. You can find these games in the PlayStation Plus app on your PlayStation home screen or in the store by finding the games individually.
