September 2022 PlayStation Plus Games Announcement


Sony has announced that the PlayStation Plus games for September 2022 are Need for Speed ​​Heat, Granblue Fantasy: Versus and Toem. Revealed on the PlayStation Blog, all three games will be available at no additional cost to all PlayStation Plus subscribers on September 6.

Need for Speed ​​Heat is the third game in the revamped series that debuted in 2015, taking players on the roads of the fictional Florida metropolis of Palm City. Heat revolves around a day and night cycle that brings out a different style of racing, with the player having to master both clean street racing and fierce battles with rogue cops.

We much preferred this one to Need for Speed ​​2015 and its sequel, Payback, because in our 8/10 test, IGN said, “Need for Speed ​​Heat is a mosaic of existing ideas, but it’s is by far the most impressive Need for Speed ​​game of years.”

Granblue Fantasy: Versus is a completely different vibe. This four-button Japanese fighting game features light, medium and heavy attacks – alongside a character-specific finisher similar to Street Fighter 5’s V-Skills – and its automatically implemented combos make it one of the best kind combat entry points there.

IGN said it was great, as “it cleverly balances considerations for more casual fighting game players without ever stepping on the toes of its hardcore audience”.

Finally, the most niche of the three new games is Toem: A Photo Adventure, a hand-drawn adventure game centered around the fun of photography. Designed to be a relaxed and charming puzzler, it certainly seemed to achieve that goal as IGN gave it an 8/10 in our review as well.

“Toem is a short, satisfying little photographic adventure filled with witty writing, wacky but grounded characters, and a wealth of interesting and picturesque moments to capture,” we said. “Although simple to complete, its diorama-like maps, cartoon style, and enjoyable music and sounds make it an inviting world to stick around long enough to discover all of its secrets.”

These three new games will be available for free until October 3, while last month’s games – which include Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2 and Little Nightmares – will be available until September 6.
