PS Plus Essential monthly games in Asia has two bonus games

By Sean Lawson,

Sony revealed that PS Plus users in Asian territories will have access to two bonus games that aren't included in the European, American, and Japanese lineups. So, you won't be able to download these on your PS4 and PS5 consoles.

Sony just announced the PS Plus Essential games for October 2022 in Asia. Here in the EU and US, we will gain access to Hot Wheels Unleashed, Injustice 2, and Superhot for anywho who is subscribed to the PS Plus tier of Essential, as well as those on the Extra and Premium tiers as well. However, those in Asian territories are going to also have access to two bonus games.

EU and the US to miss out on two easy platinum trophies with this month's PS Plus

Despite the recent PS Plus announcement for the upcoming games of October 2022, it appears more surprises lay in wait for those in Southeast Asia who have access to two more bonus games — EU and the US will have to miss out this time around. In a recent announcement from PlayStation Blog, Southeast Asia will also get the titles Rouge Explorer and Crisis Wing that they can download onto their PS4 and PS5 consoles.

Rogue Explorer appears to be a simple little platformer that sees you taking down monsters, collecting loot, and levelling up your hero — a standard outing all an all. The Rogue Explorer trophies look to be incredibly easy, with the platinum trophy 'Rogue Master' having a completion rate of 69.5% on PSN.

The second bonus game called Crisis Wing actually comes from the same publisher and developer as the previously mentioned titled — EastAsiaSoft. This may explain why Asia has received these bonus games and we in the EU and US haven't. Crisis Wing looks to be a fun shoot 'em up where you will be dodging and weaving past a hellfire of gunfire as you try to make your way to the end of the game. The Crisis Wing trophies are also incredibly easy, with the platinum trophy 'Crisis Wing Hero' amassing an overall completion rating of 39.6% on PSN.

While these games aren't anything spectacular and are certainly not winning a plethora of awards, it is still a shame to see these small bonus titles not coming our way. What do you guys think? Disappointed we won't also be able to download these titles outside of Asia? Let us know in the comments below!
