The free PS Plus games for October 2019 are yours to claim right now, and you won't want to miss them if you enjoy a) sneaking around horrific fungus zombies or b) participating in America's favorite pastime. Sony is giving away The Last of Us Remastered, the PS4 version of the Naughty Dog classic, and MLB The Show 19 for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers. It's a great time to brush up on your Last of Us history, since The Last of Us 2 release date is now officially set for February. It's also pretty cool for The Show, since that game hasn't been out for very long.
Both of the free PS Plus games for October 2019 were made available starting on Tuesday, October 1. They'll remain free until Tuesday, November 5, and if you claim them by then you can play them whenever you want (as long as you remain a PS Plus subscriber). You can see what was available last month at the bottom of this post.
The Last of Us Remastered (PS4)
The Last of Us was a beautiful PS3 game, and The Last of Us Remastered looked even better on PS4. It probably wasn't a big enough difference to justify a second purchase for all but the most graphically oriented fans, but now that you don't have to worry about any purchase at all, this is the ideal way to experience Joel and Ellie's first journey. If you've never played it before, hoo boy. You had better get ready for some emotional ups and downs. Also lots of stealth action - don't feel bad about turning the difficulty down if it gets too frustrating.
MLB The Show 19
It's baseball, but a video game. This is a pretty cool get for sports fans, since this is the latest version of The Show and it's only been out since March. The PS4 exclusive is the only big, officially licensed MLB game in town, but it still improves every year with gameplay refinements and new features like the historical "Moments" - ever want to play out Babe Ruth's famous called shot for yourself? More casual fans will also enjoy the new March to October mode, which lets you play through just the biggest games of the season on your way to the World Series.
