Nioh was considered one of the best soulsborne games outside of FromSoftware’s catalogue, and over time, the sequel has also found its place in the mainstream. The game was praised for its dedication to challenging gameplay paired with a fantastic art style and polished combat. Team Ninja’s Nioh 2 is one of the best examples of how to emulate the soulsborne style while also retaining a core identity separate from games like Bloodborne and Dark Souls.
The LEGO Harry Potter collection brings together Years 1-4 as well as Years 5-7 in a remastered edition of the game. Players can either play the game solo or two players can join in together in couch co-op or online. The LEGO Harry Potter games make for some of the best co-op fun in gaming and they are a wonderful addition to the PlayStation Plus games lineup.
Heavenly Bodies is a unique, sci-fi, interstellar experience that puts players in the shoes of a cosmonaut in space. This challenging physics game tasks the players with controlling the movement of their character and reaching specific research stations, either alone or with a friend via local co-op. Players will be able to download all 3 games from November 1.
This is also players’ last chance to download October’s Monthy Games, which include Hot Wheels Unleashed, Injustice 2, and Superhot. The games will be available for download until Monday, October 31. Once in your library, the games will remain there as long as players have an active PlayStation Plus subscription.
It will be interesting to see which games will make their way onto the PlayStation Plus Game and Classics Catalogue this month. Sony is currently prepping for one of the biggest launches of the year as God of War Ragnarok nears its release date, November 9.
