PS Plus Game Catalog releases for Oct. 2023: Gotham Knights, Disco Elysium, Alien: Isolation

Heads up PlayStation Plus subscribers (those of the now more costly Extra and Premium tier varieties, specifically), the next set of Game Catalog releases are almost upon us.

That means as of Tuesday, October 17th, 2023 there will be some high profile games including Gotham Knights, Disco Elysium – The Final Cut, Alien: Isolation, The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes, Dead Island Definitive Edition and more for PS4 and/or PS5 added to the Game Catalog… along with a few others including “classics” such as Tekken 6, Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny and Ape Escape Academy.

But wait, there’s more.  As Sony previously promised, they are gearing up to launch cloud game streaming access for PlayStation Plus Premium members for select Game Catalog titles, Game Trials and some other releases that players may already own or considered F2P.  That feature will start rolling out later this month depending on the region.

As for the regular downloadable Game Catalog releases for October, see the list below and also at the PlayStation Blog.
