During today’s PlayStation State of Play presentation, Sony revealed that the next two games coming to PlayStation Plus in October 2019 will be The Last of Us Remastered and MLB The Show 19.
MLB The Show 19, if you can’t already guess from the title, is the licensed Major League Baseball game series and has received generally good reviews. The game currently retails for about $30, making it a good value for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
The Last of Us Remastered is the PlayStation 4 port of Naughty Dog’s critically-acclaimed survival action game, The Last of Us. In case you’ve been living under a rock since 2013, here’s the official description:
The Last of Us takes place 20 years after a pandemic has radically changed civilization, where infected humans run wild and survivors kill each other for food, weapons – whatever they can get their hands on. Joel, a violent survivor, is hired to smuggle a 14 year-old girl, Ellie, out of an oppressive military quarantine zone, but what starts as a small job soon transforms into a brutal journey across the U.S.
The remastered version includes both the base game and The Last of Us: Left Behind, the story DLC released in 2014. The game currently retails for about $20. Including the game in October’s PlayStation Plus lineup is meant to help get players up to speed with the series, as Sony and Naughty Dog also just announced the Last of Us Part II’s release date to be in February 2020.
As always, both games will be available for all PlayStation Plus subscribers to download and play from October 1st to November 4th without additional cost. The Last of Us Remastered and MLB The Show 19 will replace the current offerings Batman: Arkham Knight and Darksider III. PS Plus Subscribers have between now and September 30th to download the latter two titles.
