(PlayStation)Two of the free games on PlayStation Plus' September 2016 list

Following the release of September's free games for PlayStation console owners, PlayStation Plus subscribers are now ecstatic to get a hold of the list of October's titles. Unfortunately, Sony has been tight-lipped for the past weeks and there's no official announcement made as of writing.

Nevertheless, there are numerous predictions on what fans should expect for the October lineup. Some reports suggest that "Dead Island" will be part of the PlayStation Plus free games for October 2016.

The horror survival title is very popular among PS3 and Xbox 360 players. Released in 2011, it has since become a favorite among zombie apocalypse lovers and has received generally positive reviews from players around the world.

Sony will be making a very good choice if this title is added to next month's free games releases. Aside from the popularity of zombie games in the gaming realm, a sequel to the game is expected to come this year and it would be the perfect time to boost the interest of players for the 2016 release.

Meanwhile, there are also reports suggesting that Japanese titles will be included in the list for PlayStation Plus free games next month. "Nights of Azure," the 2015 hit role-playing game which is not just famous in Japan but also in the North Americas and Europe, is said to be arriving for free in October.

It is also predicted that "BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend" will be included for next month's free games launch. It is a 2-D fighting game that features various modes for practice, story-time and battle.

Probably the biggest bomb which has been spinning in rumor mills these days is the purported addition of "From Dust" to the PlayStation Plus free games for October 2016 list. The Ubisoft title has become a fan favorite since it was released in 2011 mainly due to its unique stories and exciting gameplay that adventurous players enjoy.

Sony has yet to make an official announcement so it is best to take the speculations with a grain of salt for now.
