It is the beginning of new month, and that means only one thing: millions of PlayStation Plus subscribers can download two new additions to the PlayStation Plus lineup of games.

It's that time of the month and many PlayStation Plus subscribers are eager to download new additions to the PlayStation Plus lineup. 

Two new games are available to download and play right now:

  • Need For Speed: Payback 
  • Vampyr

Need for Speed: Payback is a racing video-game developed by Ghost Games (known as EA Gothenburg as of February 2020), and published by Electronic Arts (of course) for Windows PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It's the twenty-third (23!) installment in the long-running Need for Speed series.

It was released worldwide on November 10 back in 2017, and it was followed up by Need for Speed Heat.

It was nominated for Best racing game awards in Game Critics Awards and Gamescom 2017.

It features classic NFS arcade-style gameplay, and it's seemingly inspired by the early Fast & Furious films.

Need for Speed Payback received mixed or average reviews from critics, according to review aggregator sites like Metacritic and Opencritic.

Vampyr is the second free PlayStation Plus game for October. It's an action-role playing video-game developed by Dontnod Entertainment (Remember Me, Life is Strange, Tell Me Why) and published by Focus Home Interactive.

It is an action role-playing game played from a third-person view, in which player controls Jonathan E. Reid, a doctor who was made into a vampire, and whose thirst for blood compels him to kill innocent people.

It's possible to finish the game without killing citizens, but leaves Jonathan incapable of leveling up.

The game offers up to four different endings.

It received slightly better critics than the first PS Plus game for October, and it was released June 5, 2018, for PC, PS4, Xbox One, with Nintendo Switch getting it's version on October 29, 2019.
