PS Plus vs Games with Gold October 2020 – Who wins the Halloween battle between PS4, Xbox One? | Games | Entertainment


Sony and Microsoft have unveiled the October 2020 PlayStation Plus and Xbox games with Gold versions for PS4 and Xbox One.

As is tradition in October, free-to-play PS4 and Xbox One games have a supernatural twist.

On Games with Gold, subscribers will be able to download Slayaway Camp and Maid of Sker on Xbox One, as well as Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy and Costume Quest on Xbox 360.

Following previous October horror releases like Last of Us Remastered, Friday the 13th, and Amnesia: Collection, Sony is offering PlayStation Plus subscribers the option to download Vampyr.

The supernatural third-person game Vampyr will be joined by the Need for Speed ​​Payback racing game.

The first wave of Xbox Games with Gold releases are now available, while the free PS Plus games for October 2020 will be available for download starting October 6.

With the new games announced and ready for download, now is the perfect time to pit Sony against Microsoft in the monthly battle between PlayStation Plus and Xbox Games with Gold.

Can Sony continue their winning streak, or is Microsoft’s time to shine in October?

Sony’s lineup has arguably the hottest free-to-play game coming in October, as Need for Speed ​​Payback joins the service.

The game takes place in the fictional location of Fortune Valley, where racing fans are tasked with dismantling the local cartel.

“Set in the underworld of Fortune Valley, you and your team have been divided in betrayal and brought together in revenge to take down The House, an infamous cartel that rules the city’s casinos, criminals and cops.

“In this paradise of corrupt gamers, the stakes are high and The House always wins. Play in a world of varied and challenging events as Tyler the Racer, Mac the Showman and Jess the Wheelman. Every driver must compete in races. , missions and challenges to earn the respect of the Valley underground and take part in the ultimate race to finally bring down The House. “

Then the usual spooky Sony Vampyr offering, which takes place in London around 1918.

“London, 1918. You are the new Vampyr Dr Jonathan Reid. As a medic, you must find a cure to save the city’s citizens ravaged by influenza. As a Vampyr you are cursed to feed on those you you promised to heal.

“Do you want to kiss the monster inside?” Survive and fight vampire hunters, undead skals and other supernatural creatures. Use your ungodly powers to manipulate and delve into the lives of those around you, to decide who will be your next victim. Fight to live with your decisions… your actions will save or condemn London. “

Need for Speed ​​Payback official trailer drops

On Xbox One, Gold subscribers can download Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut from October 1 to October 31 at midnight.

Paying homage to classic ’80s trash horror, play as an adorably insane villain Skullface to terrorize camp counselors and any other bulk victims he finds.

“New dimensions of absurd terror and over 300 evil puzzles await you in this isometric puzzle game.”

Maid of Sker, meanwhile, is an interesting new horror game based on Welsh folklore.

“Don’t panic, don’t even breathe! Set in a secluded hotel with a gruesome, gory story, use stealth tactics to stay alive against a cult of sound-based enemies.

“Inspired by spooky stories from Welsh folklore, do your best to survive and brave the nightmares of the Quiet Ones.”

While it’s clear that Sony has the edge in terms of profile, Microsoft’s lineup probably wins roughly in terms of quality.

Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut has a metacritic score of 79% (for the Switch version), while Maid of Sker has a score of 62%.

While these aren’t stunning scores, Sony’s lineup is even worse, with just 61% for Need for Speed ​​Payback and 70% for Vampyr.

With that in mind, it’s only fair to attribute this month’s victory to the Xbox Games Gold line! This is the first time Microsoft has won a victory in what seems like an eternity.

It’s definitely not a vintage month for PS Plus and Games with Gold, although I’m personally intrigued by Vampyr and Maid of Sker, so it’s not a total loss.

Roll on November!
