Nioh and Outlast 2 are your PS Plus games for November

By Heidi Nicholas, 19 days ago
PlayStation have dropped their PS Plus lineup for November. Jump into an action RPG set in Ancient Japan with Nioh, or fight to rescue your wife from the cult of Temple Gate in Outlast 2. Both games come to the service on November 5th.


Nioh is an action RPG, set in the Sengoku period of 16th century Japan. The player is William, a warrior honing his samurai skills against waves of enemies, both human and demon. There's the Yoki; a human transformed into a demon, the Onryoki; a demon born from vengeful spirits and with half of its face aflame; the Hitotsume-Oni; the one-eyed, physical embodiment of mountainous fury, and the Onyudo; former monks fallen into beastly forms. Meanwhile, although Nioh 2 doesn't release until March next year, its open beta demo is available from November 1st to November 10th. This makes Nioh's addition to the PS Plus lineup all the more tempting as an opportunity to get some Nioh practice in.

Outlast 2

Outlast 2 is a psychological horror. After a helicopter crash, journalist Blake Langermann is stranded in the isolated Temple Gate; a village in the middle of nowhere. A cult has kidnapped his wife, Lynn, and Blake has to set out and rescue her from this sect of dangerous cultists. In Blair Witch-style, he'll have a camcorder with night vision, which will most likely die just when he needs it most. He also wears glasses, and if they fall of his vision will be compromised even more.

This is the lineup for PS Plus for November. Don't forget, if you still haven't jumped on The Last of Us Remastered or MLB: The Show 19, now's the time to do so; both games are on PS Plus until November 4th, when these next additions arrive.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres β€” when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!

Solid 2 games. I miss the 6 games a month, but Nioh is amazing grab for anyone looking to get into a Souls-esc game. Outlast 2, well if you've played the first you know the scares that are in store for you.

Heard a lot about Nioh but wont have time to play it sadly. Played Outlast 2 on Xbox One and loved it. I love that kind of games but wont play it again.
Good choice though! Hard to make a choice for me since when I like a game I usually download it as soon as it hits sale.

Nioh is definitely NOT a game I'd play so I won't even bother to download it to try.
Outlast 2 would have been perfect but I already have a physical copy of it (although I haven't played it yet).

I guess shall look towards December's offerings...laugh
Hope for the best but expect the worst.

I'm pretty happy with that. Games I'm interested in, but not enough to have bought. Perfect for Plus.

I will take a stab at both games. Not a bad deal!
