If you’ve managed to snag a sweet PS5 or own a reliable PS4, there are four reasons that should cheer you up. For subscribers of PS Plus, there are a whopping four games for free on the service for the month of March. Just last month we got Destruction AllStars, Control Ultimate Edition and Concrete Genie. This month though, Sony is giving PS Plus subscribers four great games such as the Final Fantasy 7 remake, Maquette, Remnant: From the Ashes and a VR game called Farpoint.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake:
A remake of one of the most beloved titles in gaming, FF7 is a joy to play. The game will be available for both the PS4 and PS5 (vis backward compatibility). But, there is a bit of a downside to this offer though. The upgraded version for the PS will not be available for free and players will have to purchase the upgrade to experience the next-gen version of the game. For us PS4 plebs, we’re free to play the entire game.
Remnant: From The Ashes
If you’re a fan of mindless monsters shoot’em up action, then you will love Remnant. The gameplay is solid, and it’s got a great enemy design as well as some cool bosses. It is a co-op shooter, so you can call on a friend to kick some creature’s butt. The game will be playable on both the PS4 and the PS5.
Farpoint is a VR FPS game that can be played using a DualShock controller. Blast your way through alien worlds and hideous enemies in a single-player campaign. After that, you can jump into the multiplayer mode as well. The game is best played with the Aim controller.
Exclusive to the PS5, Maquette is a puzzle game with a first-person perspective. Developed by Annapurna Studios, you can expect a bit of pretentiousness and arty-farty nonsense with this game. If you’re into that sort of thing.
