PS Plus Games For March 2021: Last Week For Final Fantasy 7 Remake And More For Free
Four free games are available for PlayStation Plus subscribers this month, including Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
We're almost at the end of March, which means you don't have long until this month's PS Plus free games switch out for another slate of titles. You have until April 5 to snag one of the best PlayStation Plus lineups we've seen. The headliner is Final Fantasy 7 Remake, and it's backed up by a trio of bangers. You can also claim puzzle game Maquette, the co-op shooter Remnant: From the Ashes, and PSVR shooter Farpoint. PS Plus subscribers can also claim one of February's freebies, Destruction AllStars, on PS5 throughout March. You're going to want to snag it as soon as possible because as soon as April rolls around, it will be sold for $20.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake is playable on PS4 and PS5 thanks to backwards compatibility. However, the PS Plus version of the excellent 2020 action-RPG won't be eligible for a free upgrade to the newly announced PS5 version. You'll have to purchase it to upgrade to Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Intergrade. If you already know you're going to want to play it on PS5, Amazon is currently selling FF7 Remake for $30. It was one of our favorite games of 2020 and earned a rare 10/10 in our Final Fantasy 7 Remake review.
Published by Annapurna Interactive, Maquette launched earlier this month and is free for subscribers only on PS5. However, you can claim it in advance if you're going to be getting a PS5 later. The first-person puzzle game is set in a recursive simulation where everything appears to be both small and large. Players manipulate objects in the world to solve puzzles.
Remnant: From the Ashes is a co-op focused survival action game set in a post-apocalypse. While the story is rather bland, the challenging combat is a thrill thanks to great enemy design and well-designed bosses. Over the course of the adventure, you obtain new loot to upgrade your gear. Remnant supports three-player co-op, and it's definitely designed to be played with friends. It's playable on both PS4 and PS5.
It's been a while since PSVR owners have received a new PlayStation Plus freebie. Farpoint, a first-person shooter set on an alien planet, is free all throughout March. It features a single-player campaign and online multiplayer. Though Farpoint can be played with a DualShock 4 gamepad, it really hits its stride with the Aim controller.
