PlayStation Plus Free Games for October: The Last of Us Remastered, MLB The Show 19

Your first look at next month's free PS Plus lineup, just revealed during State of Play.

PlayStation Plus members – we have a really big month for the October monthly PS4 games lineup to keep you entertained this fall. As announced on State of Play, we’re including two major blockbuster hits from Worldwide Studios with The Last of Us Remastered and MLB The Show 19.

Let’s dive right in.

The Last of Us Remastered

In anticipation of the next chapter of Naughty Dog’s epic adventure in The Last of Us Part II, now is your time to jump into in The Last of Us Remastered. Whether you have already played the game and want to relive Joel and Ellie’s epic journey – or experience it for the very first time, The Last of Us Remastered has you covered with both The Last of Us and The Last of Us: Left Behind.

The Last of Us takes place 20 years after a pandemic has radically changed civilization, where infected humans run wild and survivors kill each other for food, weapons – whatever they can get their hands on. Joel, a violent survivor, is hired to smuggle a 14 year-old girl, Ellie, out of an oppressive military quarantine zone, but what starts as a small job soon transforms into a brutal journey across the U.S.

In The Last of Us: Left Behind, new light is shed on Ellie’s relationship with Riley, her best friend and sometime-mentor from a military boarding school they grew up in together. After disappearing for weeks, Riley returns with a surprising revelation on her whereabouts. Ellie and Riley sneak out of school for the last time, leading to a series of events that will forever change both of their lives.

We hope this epic adventure will keep you entertained right before the sequel hits store shelves. In case you missed it, check out all of the details on The Last of Us Part II that were announced during State of Play, including a release date of February 21, 2020. The Last of Us Part II is available now for pre-order, so mark your calendars! [Updated launch date: June 19] 

MLB The Show 19

Swing for the fences in the latest edition of the popular sports franchise MLB The Show 19 from San Diego Studio (SDS) – and play the sport your way.

Or, speed-up full seasons with March to October, which lets you play only the biggest and most exciting games to focus on getting your team to the postseason and beyond in less time. You can also create your own player and rise through the MLB ranks with Road to the Show or play against others as baseball’s greatest stars and legends in Diamond Dynasty.

There will be new content dropping in October for MLB The Show 19, which includes the legendary Ted Williams, one of the greatest players of all time. You can also unlock rewards by reliving moments from the 2019 Postseason and the most memorable moments of all time.

To celebrate The Show being on PS Plus for the first time, SDS is also giving away free in-game content for those who download and log into the game between October 1st and October 31st.

State of Play September 2019: All the Announcements

Comments are closed.


  • MLB the show 20? Probably need to fix the title

    • There isn’t an MLB the show 20. 19 was released in March so 20 wont be until around that time next year.

    • Ah now I see the error..however it seems you can’t delete posts..thats annoying

    • Awesome month. MLB 19 is a new game. So excited. Darksiders III and MLB The Show are great PS+ games!




  • at least it is a month where i don’t have either game but i’m not that excited for them either. i don’t like sports game and i’m sure that most people don’t like them either. i played the last of us on the ps3 a long time ago. why are they gving out a super old game on plus because it dosen’t cost very much and i’m sure most people who wanted it already have it by now. i want good games on plus that aren’t more than 3 years old on plus not games that are over 5 years old. hopefully no more sports games on plus as nobody asked for them at all.

    • You’re sure that “most people don’t like them”? Do you know that Madden, FIFA, and NBA 2k are among the most purchased games every year? Sports games are great, and most people like them.

    • Then let them buy that yearly release the moment it comes out like the mindless drones they are. They don’t need sports games on PS Plus. ;)

    • I’m one of the people you aren’t talking about that want to play The Last of Us but didn’t want to pay the money to get it again. So in light of the it’s sequel’s release date, I now have a little more than a week until I get to play it again and get excited for the second one all over again.

    • don,t speak for everyone, this is a great ps plus offer, and sports games is ps plus is great, service is not for just one user, but all of us, most of us, last of us…

    • Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad if there were still more than two games released in a month. But oh well, that’s apparently not important.

    • Sidnightwalker you sound like a entitled grumpy twat. Theres more to life than free games ffs. And like others stated you’re not the only one out there paying for this service. The world doesn’t need to cater to just you.

    • Hey SidNightWalker, if you want more than 2 games, take your cheap butt to the store and buy one. Someone always complaining about free stuff!

  • Oh awesome Last of Us!
    Now people can be ready for Last of Us part 2
    MLB always on the most downloaded lists so it must be selling high. Though not my type of game. I’ll add it to the library.

    • I’m very excited as well. I have been meaning to replay the Last of Us before TLOU II comes out, so this will make that much easier, especially with it releasing in February and that is coming much quicker than I anticipated. I’m also interested in the MLB 19 game and will definitely get that. I’ve never really played an MLB game before, but this way perhaps I can help the Cubs win the World Series after all, since it’s looking increasingly unlikely this year! haha – But, two great games for PS Plus this month and a pretty intriguing line-up of PS games going forward. I’m thrilled, but my wallet and free time a little less so! :)

  • Nothing for me but still a good mix for different gamers. The Last of Us is a must for any gamer. MLB isn’t my thing but that’s fine. Maybe next month.

  • Time to finally play an MLB The Show game!

  • Taking out ps3/vita games didn’t make ps+ any better. Feeling you are taking your lead this gen for granted.

    Xbox offer and epic store is starting to be much better than what we get on ps+.

    • Epic Store? That’s the one without shopping cart? Hard pass.

    • Yeah, but they give out free new games every two weeks. In other words the Epic Store gives out more games per month than PS Plus. Think about it.

    • We got Arkham and Darksiders III this month. Sniper Elite 4 and Wipeout last month. Detroit, Modern Warfare Remastered, Conan, Sonic Mania, Yakuza Kiwami, Mafia III, For Honor, Hitman, MGSV, Deus Ex MD, Rime, STEEP, Absolver, Bloodborne, R&C, Resident Evil, God of War III Remastered, Transformers Devastation, MGS4, Infamous 2nd Son, Resogun, Outlast, Heavy Rain, Beyond 2 Souls, Journey, Lords of the Fallen, The Surge, Rocket League, Bulletstorm Remastered, BL2 Handsome Collection, NBA 2K, Onrush, Injustice, Until Dawn.

      PS+ has been great this gen.

    • Jogo de baseball para o Brasil ? Não é a nossa praia. Baseball game for Brazil ? It’s not our thing.

    • LOL, you sure did list a handful of games that are actually good there.

  • Please Sony, you need to understand that MLB is very bad option for a lot of world outside USA, i’m from Europe and people here are a unhappy that they are paid for PS+ and we got sport game of sports that no one play in Europe, 3 months before this you want to give football and people in USA was very unhappy and i understand why, but now give something else maybe to choose between, because this is terrible for a lot of people. I know The Show is your game but it’s MLB and that’s for very few, what about all other?!
    Please do something.

  • Might play MLB 2019 for fun, but no way I am spending 150 hours for the Platinum.

    • I platinumed MLB 14 and i’m thrilled to try again on MLB 19. Thank you Sony i’m so happy with MLB The show 19 for October!

    • Don’t know the requirements for 19, but MLB 18 is literally the only game I have ever platinumed, and it wasn’t actually hard at all. Did 75% of it without even realizing, which is the only reason I put in the effort to finish them all. If 19 is anything similar, it may just end up being my second platinum.

  • Do you really think people outside of Usa want baseball?
    Europe, Latin America no like baseball

  • Here’s hoping they change their mind how they did with PES. Why a Baseball game? Most countries don’t even know the rules, and they are also giving it to Europe and Latin America.

    • It’s a first party game so probably won’t this time. It’s fine.

    • Latin America loves baseball. Europe, you have a point, but Including Latin America as part of your reasoning is just hilariously stupid.

    • @TheQueso They only like baseball in Venezuela, Dominican Republic and Cuba. Other than those three, it doesn’t exist. Claiming that “Latin America” loves baseball is the stupid part.

    • Latin America LOVES Baseball?? Dude… do you even know where Latin America is?? I’m leaving Venezuela out since they might care a bit, but
      Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Brazil, Perú, Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia, Guayanas…95% of Latin America, they don’t give a ****! (I’m Argentinian so I’d know) Soccer on the other hand is basically the national sports for all those countries

  • MLB? Please, change for other game.

  • Please keep the games as they are. These are the best games I have seen on the PS+. Those of you who don’t like sports games then please don’t download them. I regret not saying anything a few months ago when we could’ve had a soccer game. I will not just sit by this time around and listen to a vocal minotiry hurt my chances of playing a sports game for once. (technically twice if you count that one time we got NBA2K). So please SONY keep these games. Super choices and keep up the great work.

    • As if you couldn’t just buy it if you want it so bad.

    • As if SidNightwalker couldn’t just buy all
      of the games instead of waiting on this site to get free games and to troll people all day. Get a life and stop hating on everybody for having a different taste from your mindless trolling self. Some people like Last of Us and some people like MLB/other sports games. I think Sony did a great job with both of these titles and whoever wants to whine about a new game that just came out a few months ago and a game that is very highly rated, then easy answer; simply stop whining/trolling and don’t hit the download button. Especially mindless lowlives such as SidNightwalker who have nothing better to do than to reply to everybody’s comment whining and bi*%ing. ; )

    • SidNightwalker
      Dude, you need to chill out. You seem to be working overtime with your negativity. Just breath and accept that you may not like every months games. Also, you don’t need to comment on every positive comment you see.

    • LOL, it’s not really my problem if you can’t handle the reality that Sony continually shafts it’s customers. Just because YOU are fine with that doesn’t mean everyone has to be, you weak minded little brats.

    • Oh, right, but you people come up with nonsense like the PS Plus games are given away freely, so frankly you really shouldn’t be trying to call out anyone. On anything.

    • @SidNightwalker and just because YOU are a depressing, miserable troll who wants to whine about two free games they don’t even have to offer doesn’t mean EVERYBODY hates this selection of games. Some of us are perfectly fine with a mix of games that we haven’t gotten yet on PS Plus. Get over it and stop
      your whining.

  • Please not MLB. Not sports game.

    Majority of us have played last of us. But that I still have no problem with. But MLB please.

    Give us anything but that. I’ll prefer an indie game over that. Please remove MLB.

    • I’d rather have MLB than Last of Us. I mean what percentage of PS Plus members haven’t played that game really? I’m sure it’s pretty low. There are way more people that haven’t tried MLB and it reviewed very well.

  • Maybe some of you nerds who hate the sports games should relax a little, since every other month is catered to you. Sports games on Plus are few and far between, and contrary to your close-minded beliefs are actually enjoyed by a majority of people.

  • I somehow knew TLOU would be on PS+ before the second one and I like it. Even though almost everyone already has it, it’s still a good idea so people can discover it.
    But MLB I still think it’s a poor decision. Outside of the US baseball is not that popular. None of my friends like it as well. Why not create a voting system. Put together a few games and the community chooses from it. I believe people would become even closer if it happened.

  • OMG they give a game that’s very new and one of the best remasters on the console and people complain. Go to Xbox

    • Did you read any of the comments? Everyone has played Last of Us, if you haven’t you can pick it up for cheaper than a month of ps plus subscription. That leaves only MLB, a disappointment for the huge amount of people that dont want to play sports games loaded with microtransactions.

    • @Neurotrophic Last of Us Remastered is $20 on Amazon and $20 in the playstation store. Both more than a month’s subscription to PS Plus.

  • For everyone saying that baseball is not popular in Latin America, is that why 27% of players on mlb rosters are from Latin American countries. Yes while just over a quarter of them fall into this demographic, that doesn’t include the minor leagues I’d be willing to better if those players were included it would be closer to the 30-40% range so I call bull on that argument. Anyways you aren’t gonna get newer games except for maybe a indie title every now and again so I don’t know why everyone complains.

    • So you claim to know more about Latin America than someone who lives there? I don’t think it’s popular outside Dominican Republic, Cuba and Venezurla. Not only just not popular, it virtually doesn’t exist. I would say that in Argentina for example over 99% of the population don’t know the rules.

    • Yeah really, how many Latin countries do you think there are, 6?

    • @ TheManuPro – You are 100% right.Minus on that Venezuela mispell lol.

    • @SidNightwalker
      You have about 15+ replies and all of them are negative! Clearly you’re a troll who wants attention. If crying about PS plus games, then don’t for plus or own a ps4? Go be troll somewhere else! I don’t play 60% of games free games, but i’m not complaining to each positive comment.

  • I have actual hype for MLB The Show 19. Please don’t change it, Sony. (Also hype for the last of us, but that’s not as controversial.)

  • This worked out quite nicely. I skipped MLB The Show this year due to the lack of PSVR support, and now I get it as a pack in with PS+. I’ll take that. I was honestly looking for it to fall to $14.99, but this is even better.

    The Last of Us being packed in is great. I already have it for PS3 and PS4, but it is a must play title. Every one of the 36+ Million PS+ subscribers need to expereience this landmark game.

  • MLS: The Show 19 it’s going to be the first game that’s been on PS Plus since I’m a suscriber (6 to 7 years aprox) that I won’t even bother to redeem. Such is my dislike towards it.

    There’s nothing that could be more alien to me than Baseball. I would totally have received PES 2019 although I already have it, but this? Lame.

    I’ve already played TLOU on PS3, but it was obvious that this is going to come along. I will finally get around to play the “Left Behind” DLC

  • This is for MLB the show developers. When you play people on your friends list competitively they can adjust sliders pre game in settings to get an advantage without even knowing. So they get an unfair advantage. People can change their hitting and pitching settings so a 95 mph looks like 150 without even knowing until it’s too late. You need to fix this by letting both players know before the game starts that the sliders have been adjusted with some sort of alert

    • You honestly think they care? Incredible.

    • Why wouldn’t they care?

    • Because, they release a new game every year. You do the math.

    • Ok well they can fix it for next year. In madden you can’t adjust the sliders cus a lot of people play for money and they know that.

    • You’d think that would be something Sony could have also figured out. It’s really obvious that it would be exploited.

    • So your argument is that you think people should be able to cheat? Lol

    • My argument is you should quit pretending like any series that gets a yearly installment is going to have any standards. I have no idea where you got the really stupid thing you typed from at all.

    • @SidNightwalker why are you such a
      depressing, miserable, lowlife idiot? Go
      get a life and stop trolling every single
      person on here. Nobody likes you and your depressing negativity; change it up and stop harassing others for having an opinion or wanting to send suggestions to improve a game. We get it; you’re not happy with the selection and you think PS Plus actually cares about you and your insignificant self. Nobody cares about you so get over it. These are the games given so you can enjoy them or shut up already and quit your complaining/harassing others like a little annoying child. What a loser… -_-

  • disappointed on show 19. not a sports fan, especially ones with microtransactions. at least more people will try the last of us!

    • MLB the Show’s microtransactions were never an issue. Mostly it was just stubs to buy DD packs or to give your RttS player training points. But it never felt like it was ‘pay to win’. Just doing regular gameplay earned you enough stubs to be competitive in DD.

      Sports fan or not MLB the Show has always been a great franchise. And the gameplay is surprisingly addictive, especially RttS.

  • It must make your job really easy when you only need to pick two games and just go for whatever games constantly go on sale for 8 dollars.

    • We pay $10 per month or even less if you paid the $40 for the whole year and you get not one but two free titles each month. Are you really that miserable? Here’s a bright idea; get over it and enjoy the free games or go buy the games you want instead of whining about the selection of free games that we’re lucky to even get. PS Plus is for online play and perks; the free games are just a nice bonus so let’s not get too butthurt over two games we are getting for free each month. -_-

    • You, are, an, IDIOT. The games ARE NOT GIVEN AWAY, YOU NEED TO BE SUBSCRIBED TO PLAY THEM, THEY ARE PART OF THE SERVICE JUST LIKE ONLINE AND CLOUD STORAGE. And it’s imbecilic fools like you that are the sole reason you have to pay anything just to be able to play games online. Wake. Up.

    • @SidNightwalker Hey moron, writing all caps doesn’t make you a tough guy. Send me your address instead of acting tough behind a keyboard and then we can see who is the tough one. Stop being an imbecile and stop your childish whining over less then $5 damn dollars a month or simply don’t pay and let us enjoy the games. Never seen somebody bi*^h and cry about a service that offers two free games for less than one meal at a fast food restaurant. Your moronic comments might make you feel a little better about your insignificant self but let me know where you want to meet up and talk face to face just so we can see who the idiot is you lowlife, moronic, depressed, miserable, insignificant piece of scum. ; )

  • Well I must the only person on the planet that hasn’t played “The Last of Us.” Now I have no longer any excuse to play it now that Remastered (more like complete) edition of the game will be for free next month.

  • Fidnt sony learn from the PES b.s?

  • Didn’t*

  • MLB The Show seems senseless considering most of the world doesn’t care for baseball. Can’t even bring myself to care.

    The Last of Us is a nice addition though.

    • I’m not a huge baseball fan IRL, but MLB the Show has been a fantastic sports franchise for years. It will surprise you how fun it is to bring an aspiring ball player up from the minors to the show. You’d be denying yourself of a great experience by not trying it out. Heck its free, what do you have to lose?

  • Thank you sony for mlb 19 the show!

  • I will skip MLB the show, but I will download The Last of Us remastered since I haven’t played that game yet.

  • I’m not a baseball fan but the fact that they are giving you MLB The Show 19 after it’s only been out 6-7 months is great value. Also glad to see TLOU Remastered finally on PS+. The original TLOU never did go on PS+ on PS3 so this is nice to see. This is a great month and looking forward to what you have in store for November.

    PS please start including PSVR games as an additional benefit. One game a month would be fine.

    • I’d like to second the notion of a free PSVR game. Even if I don’t play every one it’s nice having them to let friends or family try. Also it would be a reasonable supplement to the removed PS3 & Vita games. Maybe with some gamers having built up a few VR games in their library might sell some more VR units as well…

  • Another excellent month of game picks! Two really good choices. I already have The Last of Us but it’s an amazing game that everybody should try and can’t wait to play MLB 19! Was waiting for it to lower in price but free works out too. Highly recommend both of these fun games.

  • I’ll trade my The Show ’19 for Super Mega Baseball 2 and The Last of Us Remastered for Ni no Kuni Remastered, please and thank you.

  • Last of Us

    “Oh right on, I traded in my copy and I’d like to play it again.”

    MLB the Show

    “I don’t want sports, I want spoopy indie”

  • So…couple months ago PES was changed, but now we get game with sticks and balls, most of the world have just seen on screen and got no idea on how to play?

  • No sport games,I know many play them but everyone that does play them do buy them day 1 so change it to something else like resident evil 0 or a classic ps2 game

    • That’s a really inaccurate statement. While there are the annual buyers, just like there is for a number of non-sports series, a lot of people, like myself, like sports games, but do not buy them day one, and certainly not every year. I have The Show 18, but it was my first baseball game purchase in 8 years, because I don’t like paying each year if the experience I have already is good enough. Getting a game like this on PS+ is like a free upgrade. A game I know I will play, but that I would never have bought normally.

  • Verry sad about the sport game, I know many people will have the same reaction.

  • I’m from Europe. I have no idea what baseball rules even are, nor do I care.
    If you’re set on pushing sports games, at least pick something that’s recognised world wide.

    • Yup, like PES which they ditched a couple months ago to appeal to a bigger audience, but now they add a game for a sport that has an even smaller audience.

  • So a couple of months ago I was excited to get FIFA and yanked it out of the line up because I guess “americans don’t want it”. Ok, I get it, you try to appeal a global audience, but now I get MLB? Are you kidding me? :(

    • It wasn’t FIFA, it was PES (Pro Evolution Soccer), but I get your point. Also I would play PES (a game series I actually like) but I don’t care for MLB The Show at all.

      As you say it doesn’t make any sense, if they want to appeal to a “global audience”. Soccer is a WAY more popular sport around the world than baseball. I mean even, PES includes local and national teams from all around the world, while MLB just the teams from the US.

    • USA and Japan have over 450 million PS users so they are the majority countries when referring to users (US having over 330 million on its own). Other countries such as France, Germany, or South American countries have much less users at only 30-70 million users each. So giving MLB might not seem popular but when referring to a majority of PS users (over 450 million users), it’s a very fitting choice especially when MLB has been a huge success in sales last few years. Some people are acting like they throw a sports game on here every single month. Nobody is going to have the same taste so if somebody doesn’t like a game, simply download the other free game or wait until next month or just buy a game if you want to play something else. We’re getting a free game that just came out a few months ago and instead of being happy and thankful we even get free games for paying around $5/month, we get greedy. Sad world we live in when we’re picky about the free things we get.

  • Probably the worst month ever on the Plus lineup for PS4…funny how you say “we have a really big month for october lineup”…only if it’s a really big month of spitting in the face of your customers.A recycled game and a ***damn sport game.Won’t even bother…worst month for PS4 ever.

    • Majority of people love “damn sports games” so I don’t get how a new game that just came out a few months ago and a remastered classic is a bad month. That looks like an excellent month! :D

  • I will gladly take the remaster of the last of us but the show I don’t think this would be a game I would play. I tried it in the past and it just was not fun for me. Hopefully the last of us will keep me busy for a week or so.

  • Fantastic lineup.

    I got The Last of Us in a bundle with my PS4 but it is a great game.

    I’ve been waiting for a good sale on The Show, so I couldn’t be happier about this one!

  • Hmm hopefully you will change MLB The Show for another game, like you did with Pro Evolution Soccer (a game that I wanted).

  • please!! change MLB 2019 here in Brazil baseball is not popular change for another game, give us Need for Speed, Assassin’s Creed!

    • I like that idea, A Need for Speed Assassins Creed game would be a cool crossbreed. If only done right and not by EA nor Ubisoft.

  • Unfortunately I’m very disappointed with this months PS Plus titles. Most of us already own The Last of Us Remastered which makes it so only a few people can really experience this for a first time (additionally with the original being available on PS3). MLB The Show 19 is a bust for me personally. Sports games never go well for PS Plus subscribers and I am definitely one of them. For the future my recommendation for any sports titles introduced would be to cater to a larger platform of gamers and release more of an Arcade/Unique type sports game that a majority of the community can enjoy.

    Praying MLB The Show 19 gets removed and replaced before October comes along.

  • Lame. Wasn’t TLoU already offered for a PSN+ game at one point? I have it in my library to download and I know for a fact I didn’t purchase it digitally, because I had bought it on disc when it was released.

  • The Last of Us was released June 2013. Even if remastered it is a game from 2013. Would be like getting Final Fantasy VIII Remastered or Secret of Mana remastered. GameStop has it listed for $4.99 and engadget has an article that the PS3 version was free in June this year from Naughty Dog when the developer shut down the online servers. I only complain due to the age of the game and I already own it on both consoles. If you haven’t played it and expect something great remember how old it is. As for MLB, I have nothing against the yearly franchises in the cookie cutter sports genre. I know people IRL who love those and really enjoyed The Show. So just try it, I have and was ok, but best with friends.

  • Who the F* doesn’t have last of us by now..?

  • Poor selection. First, a PS3 game that was given away with the PS4 for free for years on top of it being on sale for $5 for the last 3 years. Second, I would rather have PES than MLB. Baseball is dying in the US as it is because it is boring.
