Update: We now have confirmation from Sony that the lineup of PS5, PS4 games joining PS Plus Essential in October 2022 is as follows:

PS Plus Essential: October 2022

The three games will be available to download on Tuesday, 4th October 2022, and thus join the long list of All PS Plus Games. Sony has also said next month's PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium titles will revert back to being announced mid-way through the month, so check back for those in a few weeks.

Owners of Sony's newest console can look forward to the native PS5 version of Hot Wheels Unleashed, which we scored a 7/10 in our review. Praising its racing, car variety, and great multiplayer components, we concluded: "While the tracks tend to feel a bit samey and the random nature of unlocks may lead to some frustration, the end result is a robust racing game that'll appeal to fans young and old."

Meanwhile, Injustice 2 is a very good fighting title, even if it is a bit old now. "The game’s depth in fighting, story, and customisation options make it a worthy addition to not only any fighting gamer’s library – but demands to be tried by people of all tastes," we concluded in our 9/10 Injustice 2 PS4 review.

Rounding out the October 2022 lineup is SUPERHOT, an FPS that is utterly excellent. "It may lack the physicality of its virtual reality alter-ego, but it makes up for this with a mind-bending story and an on-point menu system. The slow-motion shooting is still super satisfying, and the added locomotion makes for a different kind of cadence to the PlayStation VR version. Buy both editions if you can, as they complement each other nicely and are unmissable in our humble opinion."
