PS Plus Members: Grab Shadow Of The Colossus For Free This Weekend
March's PS Plus games are free to claim now.
March 2020 has given us a ton of great games to sink time into (including Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Doom Eternal, And Half-Life: Alyx), but for PlayStation Plus members, it also means a new batch of free PS4 games. As usual, these games are free to keep as long as you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription. This month, we get one of the best remakes in recent memory and a game that is definitely not that. And while you're downloading these two, you can check out what the April 2020 PlayStation Plus games are, too.
First up for PS Plus members in March: Shadow of the Colossus, an HD remake of the 2005 PS2 classic. Shadow of the Colossus follows a man named Wander who travels across a forbidden land to battle massive, armored colossi. The game earned a "superb" 9/10 in GameSpot's Shadow of the Colossus review for its stunning visuals, riveting fights, and very good horse.
"Shadow of the Colossus is a tremendous journey, and one well worth taking and retaking," wrote Edmond Tran. "The visual overhaul is stunning, thoroughly enhancing every facet of Wander and Agro's excellent adventure. Galloping through the tranquil world is always breathtaking; felling a monumental colossus is always humbling. Shadow of the Colossus is a beautiful reconstruction of an already exceptional title. It continues to be a modern classic and is an extraordinary game that everyone must experience."
The second free game for March is less exciting, but if you're in the mood to play some Sonic after watching the new Sonic the Hedgehog movie, Sonic Forces is still worth snagging while it's free. Featuring both classic side-scrolling and modern 3D gameplay, the 2017 game starring everyone's favorite blue hedgehog takes place in a time where Doctor Eggman and his minions have managed to conquer the world. Sonic and other familiar heroes like Knuckles, Tails, and Amy form a resistance hoping to stop Eggman's evil plans.
The game earned a 5/10 in GameSpot's Sonic Forces review--editor Matt Espineli enjoyed its thrilling action but criticized its overall lacking story and clunky platforming. "Sonic Forces ultimately fails to advance the mechanics of previously successful 3D Sonic games or present them in their best light. A mediocre platformer at best, Sonic Forces manages to do nothing more than reinforce long-held stereotypes against Sega's beloved blue blur," he wrote.
If you're looking to renew or extend your current PS Plus membership at a discount, there's a great deal on a one-year membership at Ebay, which is selling 12-month PS Plus codes for $37.50 each. Considering PS Plus subscriptions generally go for $60 and rarely drop below $40, it's worth snagging this offer while still available. This is a digital code you'll receive via email within 24 hours of purchase. Plus, check out all of the other free games you can claim right now.
