It seems like PlayStation Plus free games are now becoming better than Xbox Live's. For the month of October, PS Plus subscribers have a bunch of nostalgia-heavy games and some indie titles. Now, let's see the free games this October for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.
Last week, Polygon reported the newest lineup of PS Plus free games. There's a thrilling racing game, a dark RPG title, and a game that pays homage to a popular '80s TV show. Not only that, there's a remaster of hit horror video game.
Resident Evil HD is the highlight of PS Plus October 2016 free games. This is an update of a 1996 survival-horror game. According to reviewers, fans of the series can expect the scares, puzzles, and atmosphere of the creepy corridors of Spencer Mansion are still effective as ever.
Aside from Resident Evil HD, PS4 gamers can play Transformers: Devastation. Developed by Platinum Games, Devastation has epic boss battles that are lovingly authentic to the '80s Transformers TV show and movie. It is also interesting to note that the appeal of this Transformers game is different from Michael Bay's movies. The game has textures and animations that look like ripped right out of the 1986 Transformers movie.
For PS3 gamers, they can download an action-filled racing game and an exciting single player god game.

In addition, it has competitive multiplayer and customization options that make players glued to their seats. Overall, the game is perfect for off-road racing fans who want to have thrilling wheel-to-wheel action.
Aside from racing game, PS3 gamers have access to From Dust, which is developed by Ubisoft. In it, players have to protect their tribe against Nature's most devastating attacks, such as wildfires, tsunamis, volcanoes, heavy rains and earthquakes. In addition, players have godlike powers. They can stop ravaging rivers, hold back lava, raise mountains and grow forests.
For PS Vita gamers, they can download Code: Realize ~Guardians of Rebirth~. This RPG game casts players as a beautiful young woman who has mysterious powers. Set in a reimagined Victorian-era London, players have to unlock the secrets of the game with the help of five writers. The game was released fall last year exclusively for PS Vita.
