Each month, Sony gifts its PlayStation Plus subscribers with a number of games for free. Though the quality and quantity of the titles are often quite consistent, for the month of March the console manufacturer has seemingly upped both, as 4 games will be offered for free, one of which is Final Fantasy VII Remake.
From the 2nd of March, all PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to get their hands on:
- Final Fantasy VII Remake
- Remnant: From the Ashes
The headlining title is undoubtedly Final Fantasy VII Remake. Released on the 10th of April 2020 exclusively for PS4, the remake of the PlayStation 1 classic garnered universal love and fanfare, selling over 5 million copies by August. Recently it was announced that the game would be receiving a free PS5 upgrade. Unfortunately, the PlayStation Plus version will not get this free upgrade. Even so, the last-gen experience is still incredibly solid, and should not deter anyone from playing this game.
The other notable title is Maquette – a PS5 “first-person puzzler designed around a Escher-esque recursive simulation”. Its inclusion is notable as it is launching on PlayStation Plus simultaneously with its global release. PlayStation recently announced its intention to offer more simultaneous releases through PS Plus, a strategy which seems to already be in motion.
Last but not least, it is worth noting that one of February’s free games, Destruction AllStars, will still be available for ‘purchase’ throughout March. All 5 of these titles will be available for free until the 5th of April.
