PlayStation Plus' new free game is one of the most disturbing, underrated horrors ever made

PlayStation Plus' new free game is one of the most disturbing, underrated horrors ever made

Another month, another PlayStation Plus line-up, with May bringing one of the most underrated horror games to subscribers on PS4/PS5

Another month, another list of free PlayStation games, provided you’ve got the right PlayStation Plus membership to play them. One game in particular is one of the most underrated horror games ever made, and well worth a look while it’s available!

Bethesda’s The Evil Within 2 is a survival-horror game that puts players in control of Detective Sebastian Castellanos, who’s searching for his daughter in a nightmarish environment. Using a mix of direct combat and stealth, the player will need to navigate an open-world, search for clues and survive the intense horrors that lurk around every corner.

It received generally positive reviews, with the majority of criticism revolving around the story and characters, it, unfortunately, didn’t reach the same level of popularity as competing horror franchises like Resident Evil and Silent Hill, but it still did pretty well.

PS4 and PS5 users will be able to download The Evil Within 2 at no additional cost as part of the PlayStation Plus Extra tier or higher, so it’s well worth checking out this underrated horror while it’s still available.

PlayStation Plus on the whole has been a bit of a mixed bag this month. Many were left disappointed by May’s three free games, describing the line-up as the “worst” they’d seen in a “long time.” Following that disappointment, things picked up with the digital game library, which reportedly saves subscribers over £600. Standout games included Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, Chivalry II, Dishonored 2 and more, but we felt one of the real hidden treasures was a charming puzzle game called Humanity.

Fans are already looking ahead to future additions to the service, with many hoping for more first-party exclusives like God Of War: Ragnarok, as well as patiently awaiting more additions to the classics library, which includes titles from PlayStation 1, 2 and 3 in its roster.
