PlayStation Plus October Offers: Free Costume Quest and Discounts Galore

+ Posted by Grace Chen // Director, PlayStation Store

PlayStation Plus October 2011

It’s another good month to be a PlayStation Plus subscriber with some amazing free games and discounts for October! Leading things off is Costume Quest; Double Fine Productions’ stand-out adventure RPG where your Halloween costumes act as conduits to become a force to be reckoned with! With charmingly hilarious characters and story, you’ll want to snag this one soon as it will be available free from Plus for two weeks starting October 4th.

New release Elemental Monster is also available free for Plus subscribers starting October 4th and going through the month. Build your deck (featuring the stunning illustrations of Yoshitaka Amano), and battle online to determine who’s got the best tactics. At the same time you can enhance your game with seven different Booster Boxes, available at 50% off ($2.50) for Plus subscribers.

Action RPG fans, keep your eyes out for new release Dungeon Defenders later this month. Plus subscribers will be able to get access to free DLC for this awesome blend of Tower Defense and co-op action! The DLC will grant you access to 4 ‘familiars’ in the game that will help you in your adventure. Warhawk and Starhawk fans also take note; the original Warhawk PSone Classic is available for free as well. Relive old memories and see the roots of the Warhawk franchise; then prepare to have your mind blown when Starhawk drops in 2012.

This month, we’ll also be rolling out a ton of discounts across the network, including special day one discounts for all titles featured in the Only On PSN event! Get all eight exclusive PSN titles at 20% off during their first week launch, and enjoy the experiences you can only get on PSN, at a price that can’t be beat. The PSN release of Resident Evil 5 will also be sporting a 25% discount for one week, while other PSN titles like Explodemon! and Tales from Space: About a Blob will have their own set of discounts throughout the month.

There’s a ton more, including a to-be-announced SEGA title that will have added benefit for Plus subscribers, as well as new Full Game Trials like Dead Space, Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One, and Homefront, to name a few. Check out the entire breakdown below and leave your comments below. For more discussion, head to the Official PlayStation Plus Update thread in the PS forums.

How hard can it be to make a few bloody Avatars, for the love of God, it would appease so many so quickly & also so cheaply, we're over a year in & they finally give us some damn Avatars, go figure!

Funny - just responded to the Oct update in another thread.  Oct = very nice PS+ month.  I am going to be taking advantage of some of the discounts this month.

Have to love getting exclusive PS+ Halloween avatars.  Did HELL just freeze over?

Weird, Street Smarts is on the list again, and still not there.  Not that I really care; I don't know anything about it except that it's a mini.  Looks like a decent month though; I wanted Costume Quest, but passed on it (on sale) before.

Yeah shocked about the PS+ exclusive avatars but glad to see them coming. It should be easy enough to make at least one PS+ exclusive avatar each month @_@ Also noticed the 2O instead of 20 unless 2O means something?

It means someone made a typo .  I agree, I don't understand why there aren't more avatars, exclusive or not; they are basically free to make anyway.

we also got 20 or so uncharted avatars on september 27th, and this update is 20 more avatars plus some halloween ones, that's over 40 avatars in 2 weeks for free,

Also I want the halloween avatars, like others have said it's good that they finally made them, and they are exclusive to plus, so that's cool as well.

-Personally I could care less about these, they were for Uncharted 2 anyway, what's the point in that, I want EXCLUSIVE PS PLUS AVATARS, not some old discounted or free ones.
