Good news for PlayStation gamers - the March 2021 PS Plus games should be revealed later this week!
Here's what we know so far, and the games we predict will be revealed soon enough.
Latest News - 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.
Sony usually announces the next lot of free PS Plus games on the last Wednesday of the month.
This would mean that the games should be announced on Wednesday, February 24th - so mark your calendars!
February's PS Plus titles will be available until March 1st, with the next batch of games going live on March 2nd.
This doesn't include Destruction All-Stars, however, which will remain on the service until April for PS5 only.
Each month Sony release two new PS4 games to the service, along with one PS5 game.
All of the PS4 games can also be played on PS5 via backwards compatibility.
So far we have seen PS5 games such as Worms Rumble, Maneater and Control added to PS Plus.
March 2021 Predictions
Here is what we think could be added this month.
No Man's Sky
No Man's Sky had a very rocky start, plagued by issues it was almost certain the game would go in the history books as one of the biggest flops of all time.
However, the developers weren't about to let all of their hard work go to waste and instead worked for years to make it the game they always envisioned.
Here is some more information about No Man's Sky.
"Inspired by the adventure and imagination that we love from classic science-fiction, No Man's Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, and constant danger and action.
In No Man's Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and you can go to any of them you choose. Fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you'll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before - and perhaps never will again."
Dark Souls Remastered
Dark Souls is punishing in the best way possible.
It is hailed as one of the best gaming series of all time, and it is about time it was added to the PS Plus library.
With Demon's Soul Remastered being a PS5 exclusive, getting more players into the series before they purchase a PS5 wouldn't be a bad thing.
Here is some information on Dark Souls Remastered.
Then, there was fire. Re-experience the critically acclaimed, genre-defining game that started it all. Beautifully remastered, return to Lordran in stunning high-definition detail running at 60fps.
Dark Souls Remastered includes the main game plus the Artorias of the Abyss DLC.
• Deep and Dark Universe
• Each End is a New Beginning
• Gameplay Richness and Possibilities
• Sense of Learning, Mastering and Accomplishment
• The Way of the Multiplayer (up to 6 players with dedicated servers)
We predict the free PS5 this month will be Disco Elysium.
The game is due to be released on PS5 in March 2021, except it currently can't be pre-ordered from the PS Store.
This could mean it is due to be released on day one on PS Plus, much like Worms Rumble and other titles that launched on the service.
Here is some more information about Disco Elysium.
Disco Elysium is a groundbreaking open world role playing game. You’re a detective with a unique skill system at your disposal and a whole city block to carve your path across. Interrogate unforgettable characters, crack murders or take bribes. Become a hero or an absolute disaster of a human being.
Unprecedented freedom of choice. Intimidate, sweet-talk, resort to violence, write poetry, sing karaoke, dance like a beast or solve the meaning of life. Disco Elysium is the most faithful representation of desktop role playing ever attempted in video games.
Countless tools for role playing. Mix and match from 24 wildly different skills. Develop a personal style with 80 clothes items.

February PS Plus Games
Last month Sony knocked it out of the park when it came to the PS Plus lineup, so our hopes are quite high for March!
February 2021 saw the following titles on offer:
- Destruction All-Stars (PS5 Day one release)
- Control (PS4/PS5)
- Concrete Genie (PS4)
