Another month, another PS Plus monthly games for October 2023 leak! Players will supposedly able to start collecting The Callisto Protocol trophies as a part of PS Plus, alongside one other leaked game and one yet-to-be-revealed third title, as Sony lines up more contenders for the best PS Plus games list.

What are the leaked PS Plus 'free' games for October 2023?

As per dealabs and the ever-reliable user billbil-kun, the leaked PS Plus Essential games for October 2023 are The Callisto Protocol (PS5, PS4) and Farming Simulator 22 (PS5, PS4). The pair will release on Tuesday, October 3, 2023, as part of the PS Plus Extra lineup of three games if the leak is true (and it will be) — the third game is currently missing from the leak.
The official announcement will be tomorrow — Wednesday, September 27, 2023 — and you can stay on top of the announcement dates in our PlayStation Plus month and year guide. I think it's worth noting just how massive this pair of games are. The Callisto Protocol is a very recent PS5 title and, as I recall, one of the most hyped games for the end of the 2022 gaming calendar.

With Dead Space alumnai Glen Schofield in charge of developer Striking Distance Studios, the survival horror genre of The Callisto Protocol and the gory gameplay really sold it as a spiritual sequel. However, it landed flat critically and commercially on release. It strikes me as the perfect PS Plus game (non-derogatory); people want to play it but aren't keen on buying it at the asking price.
I'm sure plenty will be happy at the chance of collecting Farming Simulator 22 trophies too. The community around simulation games is massive and growing at an insane rate, friends. So, make sure you are prepared for the mass amount of players ready to sew a field of wheat and watch it grow in real-time. Heck, I'm tempted to join them to see what all the fuss is about!

What do you think of the two of three games revealed for PS Plus Essential so far? Will Sean see it fit to add The Callisto Protocol to the list of easy PS Plus platinum trophies? Well, only he can answer that for you in the comments below — Sean and I will see you there!
