What are the PS Plus games for October 2021?

Here are the free PS Plus games for October if the leak is accurate: Hell Let Loose (PS5) Mortal Kombat X (base version, PS4) PGA Tour 2K21 (PS4) ForbesFree PS Plus Games For October 2021 Leaked Online

It looks like the PS Plus free game line-up has leaked for the second month in a row. As per a new rumour, the games coming to anyone who's a member of Sony's subscription this month will include Hell Let Loose for PS5, and Mortal Kombat X and PGA Tour 2K21 for PS4.

The rumour comes from a post on French deals site Dealabs, the same place that the correct line-up for September's games was posted before Sony actually confirmed them. (Cheers, VGC).

If the leak is accurate, and the moderators on the site seem to think it's up to scratch, it'll be the first time we can get Hell Let Loose on console. The title (a multiplayer tactical first-person shooter set during World War 2) launched on PC earlier this year, but it's not yet available on consoles. It's due to arrive on consoles on October 5, so the timing lines up for PlayStation Plus quite nicely.

Mortal Kombat X may not be the latest game in the esteemed fighting game franchise, but it's still worth playing – especially if you're a fan of horror games. A suite of DLC was added to the game post-launch and made iconic characters like Alien's Xenomorph, Jason Vorhees and more available for players.

When it comes to the final game in the selection, PGA Tour 2K21, it launched last year and has been pretty popular since.

October 2021 PS Plus games have leaked early again

Gamesradar 26 September, 2021 - 03:55pm

Hell Let Loose, Mortal Kombat X, and PGA Tour 2K21

For PS4 players, there's apparently the fan-favorite fighting game Mortal Kombat X up for grabs, plus the much more leisurely golf sim PGA Tour 2K21 for those with a live PS Plus subscription. 

After thanking the "wonderful Fall Guys community" for its "enthusiasm, feedback, and support" which helped the party game land with a viral smash last summer, developer Mediatonic said: "It’s safe to say that we’ve had our fair share of utterly surprising (but delightful!) moments since Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout stumbled into the world. From BAFTA nominations to a full-on bean-based ESPN documentary, those adorable beans have cropped up in some incredible places!" 

"Well, now the team are going to have to start amending their bucket list, as we can joyfully reveal that Fall Guys have made it into...The Guinness Book of World Records!"

October's Playstation Plus titles may have leaked ahead of time | Gamepur

Gamepur 26 September, 2021 - 12:49pm

Another month, another Playstation Plus leak.

In what’s quickly becoming a routine, the new lineup of monthly free games for Playstation Plus has been leaked again. The leak comes courtesy of French deals community forum Dealabs. October’s free games are rumored to be Hell Let Loose for PS5, along with Mortal Kombat X and PGA Tour 2K21 for PS4. 

Hell Let Loose is a multiplayer tactical FPS set during World War II that pits players against each other in huge 50 vs 50 matches. Its gameplay puts an emphasis on teamwork and communication as players work together to fight the opposing team while gathering resources used for calling in support across its nine maps, each featuring 99 capture point variations. The PS5 version is set to launch on October 5, which is the date the PS Plus games will release.

Mortal Kombat X is the highly acclaimed 2015 installment of the series which was lauded for its story and gameplay. Although it received an updated version titled Mortal Kombat XL that bundled all DLC fighters together (including classic slasher movie villains like Jason Vorhees and Leatherface), the leak implies this will be the base game. 

PGA Tour 2K21 is the latest entry in the series of golf games, which was released last year. It was praised for its realistic golf simulation, so fans of the sport should have plenty of fun with its inclusion. 

While this list has yet to be confirmed, it’s worth noting that Dealabs accurately leaked last month’s Playstation Plus titles. The month prior, Sony itself accidentally leaked the Playstation Plus lineup.

PlayStation Plus Free Games for October 2021 Potentially Leaked

ComicBook.com 26 September, 2021 - 09:07am

Much as the September free games for PlayStation Plus leaked at the end of August, it would appear that the October PlayStation Plus free games lineup has also leaked ahead of an official reveal. While all of this should be taken with a grain of salt or even multiple grains, the same leaker that said -- correctly, I might add -- that Overcooked: All You Can Eat!, Hitman 2, and Predator: Hunting Grounds would be September's free games for PlayStation Plus has claimed that Hell Let Loose, Mortal Kombat X, and PGA Tour 2K21 will be October's free games for PlayStation Plus.

Dealabs user billbil-kun shared the above while indicating that Hell Let Loose will specifically be for the PlayStation 5 and the latter two, Mortal Kombat X and PGA Tour 2K21 will be for the PlayStation 4. Hell Let Loose had been subject to much speculation about it being among the freebies given its release timing and other factors, but the other two video games in the lineup are more of a surprise.

Given the impending turn of the month, the official reveal of October's free PlayStation Plus video games should happen in the near future. billbil-kun's post indicates that they are relatively positive of the list above but that Mortal Kombat X could be replaced by another title in certain regions. Whether the leak is accurate or not remains to be seen, but given the recent track history of the leaker, it certainly looks to be potentially real.

As noted above, September 2021's free PlayStation Plus titles, Overcooked: All You Can Eat!, Hitman 2, and Predator: Hunting Grounds, are now available and will be so through October 4th. The former is for PS5 while the latter two are for PS4. At this point, it remains unclear what PlayStation might offer for PlayStation Plus in October 2021, but the leak of Hell Let Loose, Mortal Kombat X, and PGA Tour 2K21 seems legit enough. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the PlayStation Plus subscription service right here.

What do you think about the leaked list for October 2021's free PlayStation Plus video games? Do you believe the leak is totally real? Let us know in the comments, or feel free to reach out and hit me up directly over on Twitter at @rollinbishop to talk about all things gaming!

PS Plus Free Games for October 2021 Leak Online

GameRant 26 September, 2021 - 07:19am

All leaks live and die by their source; if a source is no good, then a leak is no good. This PS Plus leak comes way of Dealabs, a French forum with strong moderation practices, and this website has leaked the PS Plus free games lineup accurately several times in the past. As such, while it should still be taken with a grain of salt, there’s a high chance these titles are legit.

According to a post on Dealabs, next month’s free PS Plus games for October 2021 include Hell Let Loose, Mortal Kombat X, and PGA Tour 2K21. The user notes that Mortal Kombat X will be replaced in some countries, which is standard practice for the service, and these games will last from October 5 to November 2.

The other two games have solid reviews too. Mortal Kombat X, the brutal fighting game, has an 83 on Metacritic for PS4. Given how popular Mortal Kombat 11 is and how rumors of Mortal Kombat 12 have already begun, it’s a good time for any fan to go back—if they don’t own it. Meanwhile, PGA Tour 2K21 has a 76 on Metacritic for PS4 and allows players to create a character, create a course even, golf on real or created courses, and take on pros.

Overall, it seems like a solid month in PS Plus’ line-up, but again, fans should still take this with a grain of salt. Based on its PS Plus patterns, Sony will announce the next set of games on Wednesday, September 29, and then they’ll know for sure. This leak being accurate, however, seems like a safe bet.

PS Plus subscribers get a handful of free games every month.

PlayStation 5 Users Want Themes Added in a Future Update

GameRant 26 September, 2021 - 07:11am

To the disappointment of many, however, that turned out not to be the case. Sony kept the PS5 interface secret right up until the console’s release, even going so far as to bar attendees of a PS5 demo event from accessing the UI. Although Sony patents in the preceding year seemed to hint that the console’s interface might experience an overhaul, a PS5 exclusive Stranger Things theme listed on the PlayStation Store also made people believe that this feature would carry over from previous consoles.

Alas, when the console launched in November 2020, one of the most noticeable changes to the PS5 UI was the absence of customizable themes, and there have been numerous fans requesting that the feature be returned ever since. Instead, Sony incorporated dynamic, console-managed themes that change according to the game or menu item selected. The images are high quality, but they’re not always necessarily what players want to see. A recent Reddit thread shows that many players are still holding out hope that Sony will bring back this well-loved feature.

It’s unclear why exactly Sony did away with customizable themes on the PlayStation 5. The company surely has metrics that show how many people took advantage of the feature but, because many themes were often free or on sale, perhaps it just wasn’t lucrative enough for Sony to keep themes around. This is unfortunate because many gamers did spend a lot of money over the years buying themes to personalize the UI of their PS4, and it would have been welcome if those could be used on the new console.

The UI of the Xbox Series consoles, on the other hand, remains pretty much unchanged from that of the Xbox One. That meant the transition from last gen to an Xbox Series console was pretty seamless, with no adjustment period, unlike the move from PS4 to PS5. Although the Xbox 360 had fun themes for owners to customize their console’s interface, that was removed with the Xbox One. Microsoft chose to limit customization to changing wallpapers and selecting a dark or light theme, but it's likely that Xbox owners would also like to be able to further personalize their user interface.

October’s PlayStation Plus games have reportedly been revealed early | VGC

Video Games Chronicle 26 September, 2021 - 07:03am

According to user Billbill-Kun on Dealabs – who correctly leaked last month’s PS Plus line-up ahead of its official unveiling – October’s free titles will be Hell Let Loose (PS5), Mortal Kombat X (PS4) and PGA Tour 2K21 (PS4).

According to the site, proof of the leak has been submitted and verified by its moderators. Going by Sony’s typical schedule, the October PS Plus games should be officially announced within the next few days.

September’s PlayStation Plus games are Overcooked! All You Can Eat for PlayStation 5, and Hitman 2 and Predator: Hunting Grounds for PS4 (which are also playable on the newer console via backwards compatibility).

Last month Sony indicated that it’s not concerned about a recent decline in PlayStation Plus subscribers and monthly active users.

In the company’s Q1 financial results published, which cover the three months ended June 30, Sony reported total PS Plus subscribers of 46.3 million, which is up 1.3m year-on-year but down by over 1 million compared to the two most recent quarters.

According to eight years of data collated by Resetera, it’s the first time PlayStation Plus users have significantly dipped between quarters during this time period.

Sony’s chief financial officer Hiroki Totoki blamed the decline on last year’s stay-at-home restrictions and the increase they had on game activity.

“Of course, 104m is not a strong number, but are we looking at it as a declining trend? We don’t think so,” he commented. “We are trying to analyse different elements, but there are no conspicuous trends that we can capture. Maybe this month or next month we will have to continue to watch and do an analysis.”

How to Go Passwordless on Your Microsoft Account

Push Square 26 September, 2021 - 06:00am

Despite being the default way that you get into most of your digital accounts, passwords aren't really that secure—certainly not compared to a fingerprint or a device that can act as a physical key. If someone gets hold of or guesses your password, they can pretend to be you from wherever they are in the world, especially if you don't have two-factor authentication in place. Which is why Microsoft's recent move to go passwordless is such a welcome step toward better protection. 

It's a transition you should welcome. The easier passwords are to remember, the easier they are for someone else (or automated hacking tools) to guess. Making them harder to guess or crack makes them impossible to remember, adding extra inconvenience and frustration whenever there's a new device to get up and running. And while a good password manager can solve a lot of those problems for you, getting rid of passwords altogether gets you even further.

With that in mind, Microsoft is pushing a password-free future and giving users the opportunity to log into their Microsoft accounts—which you probably use to access your Windows PC, Xbox, Outlook email, OneDrive storage, and more—via other methods.

You can replace your Microsoft account password with a code from the Microsoft Authenticator app, the Windows Hello biometric login system (usually facial or fingerprint recognition), a physical security key that you keep with you, or a verification code sent via email or text.

While those options are not 100 percent foolproof, they at least require you to have something physical with you (a phone or a key) or access to another account. That's an improvement over a name and password that anyone can use from anywhere, and which can be leaked on the web.

Whichever method you want to use to make the switch away from passwords, you need to download and install the Microsoft Authenticator app for Android or iOS first. (Microsoft unfortunately didn't make its system compatible with other authenticator apps.) Log in using your existing Microsoft account email address and password, and the app can then verify your identity.

With the app setup done, head to the security settings page for your Microsoft account in a web browser. If Microsoft has pushed out the feature to your account, you'll see a Passwordless account option underneath Additional security—turn this on, then click Next on the confirmation dialog, then approve the request that will appear on your phone via the Microsoft Authenticator app.

The obvious next question is what happens if you lose access to the Microsoft Authenticator app or your entire phone. In this scenario, Microsoft will let you reset passwordless access using another verification option, like a backup email address; you can set these up via that same security settings page, so make sure you've got several safety nets in place.

From the same screen it is possible to turn off the passwordless account feature again, enter a new password, and go back to the old way of working, but it's likely that you'll want to stick with the new method for its simplicity and its enhanced security.

Your new passwordless approach should work everywhere your Microsoft account is available—on an Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, or Xbox One console for example, without any further configuration. For older software and devices that still require a password (Office 2010 and earlier, Xbox 360 consoles) you can create specific passwords using the Create an app password link on the Microsoft passwordless support page.
