Master Reboot, The Bridge, Rocketbirds 2 and 2064 Read Only Memories also join the service

With September winding down it’s time to say ‘farewell’ to the scorching summer and a big fat ‘Boo!’ to autumn. We obviously couldn’t let it pass without serving up a little seasonal treat for PlayStation Plus users, so to get you in the mood for a spook-tacular Halloween, we’re kicking-off October with notorious horror icon and sporting goods aficionado Jason Voorhees.

Here are the games joining PlayStation Plus on 2nd October:

Friday the 13th: The Game

Friday the 13th: The Game

Gun Media’s Friday the 13th: The Game is a faithful adaptation of the iconic movie series, pitting up to seven fresh-faced young high-schoolers against one lone, maniac killer.

It’s your chance to step into the shoes of one of Camp Crystal Lake’s ill-fated student counsellors, or strap on the iconic hockey mask yourself and go hunting for helpless teenagers.

Each side has their strengths and weaknesses. If you’re the man with the machete, you’ll have special powers and abilities to help you hunt your would-be victims. If you’re one of those on the run, you’ll have a selection of improvised tools – along with the power of teamwork – to see you through.

Who lives and who dies? Well, that’s up to how you play…

Laser League

Created by the studio behind the ruthlessly addictive OlliOlli skating series, Laser League is a lightning-fast competitive multiplayer game that starts out as a simple test of raw reflexes and fast becomes a deeply-strategic team showdown.

Playing either 2-vs-2 or 3-vs-3, the basic goal is simple: eliminate the opposition. Choose from a series of class abilities that will define you playstyle – offense, defensive or tactical – and then enter an arena and take control of laser points on the field into order to trap and eliminate your opposition.

The more you play the deeper it gets, with game-changing power-ups that can completely up-end the balance of power.

PS Plus bonus title: Knowledge is Power

The perfect game to cabin-up with as the nights begin to draw in, Knowledge is Power pits up to six players against one another in a race to the top of the Pyramid of Knowledge. Inch your way up by answering questions, completing tasks and occasionally trying to trip-up your fellow contestants, all in the name of jolly-good fun.

And you can put those Dualshock controllers down – as a PlayLink title, Knowledge is Power needs nothing but your handy smart phone.

Anything else?

We’ve an additional four titles for PS Vita and PS3, three of which you can also download for your PS4. Put them all together and October’s PS Plus line up looks like this:

These will all be available to download on PlayStation Store from 2nd October. In the meantime, why not check out September’s line-up to make sure you didn’t miss anything:
