This month, 16 new games have been added to PS Plus for gamers to explore, with a strong focus on Dragon Quest and Assassin’s Creed and some critically acclaimed titles.

Here is the full list of games that have been added to PS Plus in October 2022.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – The Definitive Edition (PS4/PS5)

In 2021 Rockstar Games remastered the classic PS2 trilogy of games, GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas, as Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition.

Unfortunately, it was anything but definitive. Although it had improved gameplay mechanics that brought it more in line with GTA V in some regards, the graphics are pretty bad for a AAA release in the modern age, modders have done a much better job for free.

But, with Vice City being added to PS Plus this month, it is a good excuse to at least try the game, as it is essentially free if you’re already a current PS Plus subscriber.

The other two games aren’t available on PS Plus, although GTA 3 was for a short while, and San Andreas is available on Xbox Game Pass.


Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition (PS4)

The Dragon Quest series has been around since 1986, but it was Dragon Quest XI that really pushed the game into the mainstream, with being released on multiple platforms and services such as Xbox Game Pass.

Now, PlayStation gamers will be able to check out this epic JRPG from Square Enix as part of their PS Plus subscription.

Dragon Quest Builders (PS4)

Dragon Quest Builders is an interesting concept. Players need to gather materials, craft items, and build anything they can think of in a huge sandbox world.

Think Minecraft meets JRPG, and you’re on the right track.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 (PS4)

Dragon Quest Builders 2 expands upon the concept of the first game, introducing a single-player campaign and online multiplayer mode.

The concept is largely the same but is packed with even more content to explore and create.

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below (PS4)

Dragon Quest Heroes is a great spin-off series that brings even more of what fans know and love from the series.

Players must take on hordes of rampaging monsters after they go from living peacefully in the kingdom to becoming evil.

Dragon Quest Heroes II: Explorer’s Edition (PS4)

Dragon Quest Heroes 2 is a field-roaming hack-and-slash action RPG, which is a contrast from the main series of games.

One of the game’s biggest selling points is the ability to play co-op multiplayer with up to four players to make the adventure more enjoyable as you battle alongside your friends.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (PS4)

Like Dragon Quest, this month is also all about Assassin’s Creed, with six entries from the series making their way to PS Plus.

The first is Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, one of the more recent titles in the series to be released.

Released in 2018, the game is the successor to Assassin’s Creed Origins and takes players to the Peloponnesian War fought between Athans and Sparta between 431 and 422 BC.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will run at 60fps on PS5 and is also playable on PS4.

Assassin’s Creed III Remastered (PS4)

Assassin’s Creed 3 isn’t the most popular entry in the series, so I’m not sure why Ubisoft pushed for it to be remastered over some other titles. But, if you’re a fan of the older Ezio-era games, then definitely check this one out still.

This time, you take on the role of Connor in 1775 during the American Revolution, a very interesting time period to set an Assassin’s Creed game.

The remaster also includes all of the DLC that was released for the game, which will give you plenty of hours of content to explore.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate (PS4 Only)

Head to the Industrial Revolution in London in 1868 as you play as Jacob or Evie Frye, two young Assassins who grow their influence in the underworld.

It is worth noting that, for some reason, this game will only be playable on the PS4, so PS5 owners are out of luck.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Trilogy (PS4)

The spinoff Chronicles trilogy adds a new spin on the series, with it going 2.5D and having a focus on platforming. It’s a fresh take, but the games are fairly average, but for essentially free, who can complain?

Inside (PS4)

If you’ve played games such as Limbo, Little Nightmares, and Hollow Knight, you will know what to expect from Inside.

Inside is one of the most critically acclaimed games of its time, featuring a dark narrative, moody art style, ambient soundtrack, and brilliant atmosphere.

The Medium (PS5)

The Medium was originally released as an Xbox Series X exclusive before eventually moving over to PS5. This horror game was one of the first titles to showcase the power of the next-gen systems by rendering two game worlds at the same time to allow players to seamlessly transition between the two.

The gameplay is sometimes a bit clunky, but if you like atmospheric horror games that focus on story and exploration more than combat, then definitely check this out.

You can also read our review of The Medium below, which was the very first review we ever published on The Click.


Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker (PS4)

Build a four-player team from your favorite Naruto characters, go online, and face another team on the battlefield to prove you are the best ninjas in the world.

If you’re not into multiplayer games, this one probably isn’t for you. But if you’re a fan of the Naruto series, then definitely check this out.

Hohokum (PS4)

Another game that is only available to PS4 players, Hohokum is a very interesting and eccentric game. You become a flying kite-like being as you explore colorful worlds and interact with eclectic characters, wacky toys, and peculiar environments.
