The wait for the PS Plus March 2021 announcement is over, the games have finally been announced.
The PS Plus games for March 2021 reveal is nearly here, giving us a look at what games will be coming to the service next month.
These games are a collection of titles given out by Sony each month, and they are playable as long as you're subscribed.
Latest News - The Games Have Been Announced!
After a two day delay, Sony has finally revealed the next games that will be released on PS Plus in March 2021.
These are the PS Plus games for March 2021;
- Final Fantasy 7 Remake (PS4)
- Farpoint (PS4)
- Remnant: From The Ashes (PS4)
- Maquette (PS5)
It was rumoured that Final Fantasy 7 Remake would be coming to the service this month, then last night the PS5 upgrade was announced, so this is a perfect time to add the game to PS Plus.
Maquette will be this month's PS5 game, launching on the service on March 2nd, much like we've seen recently with Destruction All-Stars and Bugsnax.
Here is some more information about the games.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake
The world has fallen under the control of the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation controlling the planet’s very life force as mako energy.
In the sprawling city of Midgar, an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche have stepped up their resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the group, unaware of the epic consequences that await him.
The story of this first, standalone game in the FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE project covers up to the party’s escape from Midgar, and goes deeper into the events occurring in Midgar than the original FINAL FANTASY VII.
It was meant to be a routine mission. Escort two scientists to The Pilgrim – a space station studying some anomaly at the edge of the universe.
You remember seeing it now. A blinding flash. Alarms. Darkness. And then… the crash.
Marooned on a hostile alien world, armed with the standard issue from the escape pod, you set off towards where The Pilgrim came down.
Your only hope of getting home is to locate any survivors from the station while keeping yourself alive with precision accuracy.
Remnant: From The Ashes
Remnant: From the Ashes is a third-person survival action shooter set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by monstrous creatures. As one of the last remnants of humanity, you’ll set out alone or alongside up to two other players to face down hordes of deadly enemies and epic bosses, and try to carve a foothold, rebuild, and then retake what was lost.
Maquette is a first-person recursive puzzle game that takes you into a world where every building, plant, and object are simultaneously tiny and staggeringly huge. Maquette makes it possible by twisting the world into itself recursively in an MC Escher-esque fashion.
February's PS Plus titles will be available until March 1st, this means that the next batch of games will go live on March 2nd.
PS Plus Will Feature More Launch Titles
In a recent interview, PlayStation CEO and President Jim Ryan spoke about how PS Plus will feature more launch titles in the future.
In the interview, Ryan stated the following in response to launching new titles via PS Plus - "We see this is a very interesting and innovative way to publish games and to make games available to our subscribers. It works for us as the publisher and we know that subscribers to PlayStation Plus love it."
Will this mean a new launch title might sneak its way into the PS Plus March 2021 lineup?
Ratchet And Clank Free For All PlayStation Owners Next Month
In a blog post, Sony announced the return of the Play At Home initiative and that it will run for four months, giving players many free games during that time.
On March 1st, all PS4 and PS5 players will be able to download Ratchet and Clank for free to keep forever.
Players don't need PS Plus to play it, like many of the free games that are given away.
Even though we are looking towards March now, that doesn't mean that February's games have been removed yet.
Players can still claim the February games until March 1st.
These games are;
- Destruction All-Stars (PS5 Day one release)
- Control (PS4/PS5)
- Concrete Genie (PS4)
For Destruction All-Stars, however, the game is redeemable until April, but only for PS5.
Players will still be able to add Destruction AllStars to their library until April.
Destruction AllStars is PS5 exclusive. And while PS4 owners can still add it to their library from PS Plus, it won't be playable until it's played on the PlayStation 5.
