PlayStation Plus Free Games For September 2022 Revealed

Following a leak, PlayStation has confirmed the next batch of PlayStation Plus freebies. September 2022’s PS Plus Essential lineup will include Need for Speed ​​Heat, Toem, and Granblue Fantasy: Versus. All three of those games are worth playing, so it’ll be a pretty good month overall for freebies on PlayStation. The new batch of games will be available to claim starting September 6. As a reminder, all PS Plus subscribers, regardless of tier, can claim the PlayStation Plus Essential lineup each month. More games are also available for Extra and Premium members.

Need for Speed ​​Heat is the best-known game of the bunch. It’s the latest entry (not including remasters) in the long-running EA racing franchise and a turn in the right direction. The franchise went down a bumpy road throughout the 2010s, but Need for Speed ​​Heat recaptured the pure arcade racing fun that the series was known for in its early days. Featuring a cool night-and-day system in which you compete in sanctioned events by day and illegal street races after dark, Need for Speed ​​Heat offers a decent amount of variety that keeps the arcade racing fresh throughout its roughly 10-hour runtime. It earned a 7/10 in our Need for Speed ​​Heat review. Need for Speed ​​Heat doesn’t have a PS5 upgrade, but you can play it on the latest PlayStation console via backwards compatibility.

Tom is a charming indie that released just last year. You play as a young photographer in search of a snapshot of the eponymous Toem phenomenon. If you’re looking for a relaxing game that won’t take up too much time, Toem is a good choice. The gameplay revolves around solving puzzles by taking photographs of the world around you. The black-and-white visuals are lovely, and the gameplay is complemented by a beautiful soundtrack. Only the PS5 version of Toem will be available to claim in September.

Fighting game fans can check out Granblue Fantasy: Versus, a 2.5D fighting game developed by Arc System Works. Featuring the characters that first appeared in the Granblue Fantasy mobile game in 2014, Versus is a stylish fighter with great mechanics. It also implements RPG systems, which is fitting considering the first Granblue Fantasy game was an RPG. The single-player campaign isn’t very exciting, but the core fighting mechanics are great. It earned a 7/10 in our Granblue Fantasy: Versus review.

If you haven’t already, make sure to claim August’s freebies before they leave PlayStation Plus on September 6. August’s lineup includes Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, and Little Nightmares.

PlayStation is also adding new games to the PS Plus Extra/Premium library next month, including Deathloop, Chicory: A Colorful Tale, and Assassin’s Creed Origins.
