    *Updated: Destiny 2 has been swapped out for Armello due to some issues that have come up.*
    This article is an update giving you a sneak peek of what games are coming to this month of Game Nights. Game Nights are weekly PlayStation 4 community events where members gather every Saturday to play games together. Now members in the PlayStation 4 Divisions will get an idea of what’s to come for this month. Whether those games be; Triple-A games, old popular games, indie games, free to play games, and even PS Plus monthly line-up games that support multiplayer features. Please understand right now we’re not giving the dates of when each game may appear in the month. Game Nights are always ever changing, and the games could get shifted around. Also understand that these games you see below have a chance of changing due to a number of reasons like; Network issues, broken patches, broken games, lost of support and interest, etc. However no matter what game it is we’re sure you’ll find something to enjoy. So come join the mayhem, make new friends, laugh all night, destroy the world or destroy each other!
    Game Nights Changes
    Recon_avwf has stepped down his hosting position after 3+ years of service to Game Nights and nearly 4 years of service to the PS4 Division. We thank him for everything. Dekaku and Raxynus have been made official Game Nights hosts and will be hosting their own chosen games for the first time this month. Game Nights October Games
    *Do not sign up for any of these Game Nights. Wait until the proper Game Nights announcement featuring the game you’re interested in.*
