PlayStation Plus subscribers could experience an explosive September 2023 with free game offerings from Sony. It may prove an incredible month.
PlayStation Plus members in September 2023 still have several weeks until receiving their free games, but there seems to be cautious optimism around what may await them in terms of freebies.
2023 has been an eventful year for PlayStation Plus with plenty of highs and lows – some incredible trilogies and stand-out PS5 exclusives have graced our lineup but there have also been some disappointing misses.
August’s free games did not go over too well with fans; subscribers currently can grab PGA Tour 2K23, Dreams and Death’s Door as freebies – though I think Death’s Door makes for an exceptional indie title – however you cannot please all parties involved.
Why does everyone expect so much out of September? Well, as many are aware of, Xbox is planning the launch of Starfield on September 6th as part of Game Pass; with such an ambitious RPG already available on day one of this service and likely to attract attention on its release day on PlayStation, one would assume Sony may attempt at least to counter with something substantial to bring up its score against Xbox.
Though I wouldn’t expect PlayStation to match Starfield with their September free games, they may come close. Given Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will debut later in October, perhaps either Marvel’s Spider-Man or Miles Morales could make their PlayStation Plus Essential lineup appearance during September to set up for release of this PlayStation 5 sequel.
PS Plus subscribers could also hope this month marks the debut of big guns like Ghost Of Tsushima or Marvel’s Spider-Man as ways of distracting themselves from not owning Starfield. Although not comparable in scale to Bethesda’s RPG, such an offering could help soften any blow from having no access to Bethesda. No matter their perspective on it all, PS Plus subscribers will likely look forward to something with an open world such as Ghost Of Tsushima or even Marvel’s Spider-Man as ways of relieving themselves from its absence – maybe something like Ghost Of Tsushima could come through and fill that bill perfectly.
Though we still have weeks until Sony unveils what its plans for September will be, in the meantime I highly suggest playing Death’s Door; its presence alone should elicit laughter!
