Happy October, everyone! It's a bit like September except it's getting a little cooler and the western world pretends it's Halloween for several weeks. A fresh batch of PS Plus Essential games is also upon us, and one of the new trio is perfect for the spooky season.

October's PS Plus Essential games are starting to roll out right now. As a reminder, they include:

The Callisto Protocol is a grisly sci-fi survival horror game, similar in many ways to Dead Space. It should be perfect to get you into the Halloween vibes. However, if you're after something a bit less intense, Weird West is a top-down immersive sim/RPG that combines the wild west with supernatural happenings. So, still slightly spooky, but in a less I'm-trapped-in-a-space-prison-with-disturbing-mutants-that-want-to-mutilate-me way.

Finally, we have Farming Simulator 22, which acts as a real antithesis to all the horror. It's a chill management/tycoon type game all about making a living from your crops and animals, slowly building an agricultural empire.

These three will be available to claim from now until 7th November. Which one will you be playing first? Let us know in the comments section below.
