Are the free games worth it? When it comes to the PS Plus games in October 2023, the metascores don’t pull up any trees at all. Nevertheless, many people will get their money’s worth from the titles. The Callisto Protocol is a fairly new, rock-solid horror game for PS5 that received many deductions in 2022 for technical reasons, but is now playable without any problems after various patches. Especially visually and in sound design Callisto a lot to offer.

If you can’t handle the zombie noise that well, you could use this Farming Simulator 22 maybe you’ll find it sooner. You’ll notice that the mood gap for PS Plus is wide this month. The farming simulators have been running on the side for years, but have secretly built up a large fan base who like to go plowing the fields in the evenings. If you want to understand the fascination better, you can take a look for free.

Weird West is, as the name suggests, strange. But it has become a bit of a cult game since its release. You play five different characters one after the other, all of whom experience their own strange stories. The whole thing takes place in an isometric top-down perspective, comes with a few supernatural elements and offers a surprising amount of playful freedom. Weird West is the absolute insider tip this month at PS Plus.
