The PlayStation Plus Essential games for October have been revealed. There are three games coming to PS Plus next month and all of them have PS5 and PS4 versions.
One of the games coming to PS Plus in October is The Callisto Protocol. I actually bought this for full price when it it first came out and it is one of those games where I could have waited for a discount – or for it to come to PS Plus.
The Callisto Protocol is actually not too bad, it’s pretty much like Dead Space. In fact, it was developed by Striking Distance Studios, a studio set up by original Dead Space series creator Glen Schofield. As you can imagine, the similarities to Dead SPace are, well, striking.
Graphics-wise the game looks pretty good and it also has a photo mode, albeit a fairly basic one I would say. The story is pretty good as well and the combat took a bit of getting used to but was pretty nice. I think there has been a patch since the release that improves the combat a bit. Overall I did enjoy The Callisto Protocol but there is a bit too much squeezing through gaps.
Check out the three games coming to PS Plus in October below.
