Sony has revealed its gaggle of free offerings for PlayStation Plus subscribers in October.

You now have no excuse not to play Spelunky.

Beginning on 8th October, PS4 owners will get the free PlayStation Plus edition of DriveClub, which includes 10 cars and 11 tracks across one country. They'll also get the next-gen port of cartoony "Metroidvania" Dust: An Elysian Tail.

Those with PS3s will have access to the oldie-but-goodie Batman: Arkham Asylum, and side-scrolling brawler Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara.

Vita and Cross-Buy offerings include the Pac-Man-esque arcade game Pix the Cat (Vita, PS4), oldschool RPG Rainbow Moon (Vita, PS3), and best-game-ever Spelunky (Vita, PS4 and PS3). Fun fact: the Vita version of Spelunky is the only one to include co-op where you're not tethered to the same screen.

Remember to download the current stock of PlayStation Plus offerings while you still can. The selection of free games currently includes Velocity 2X, Sportsfriends, PlayStation Battle Royale, Hoard, TxK, and the Vita version of Joe Danger.
