This month’s PS+ subscription comes with four games, three of them PS4 and one of them PS5, although March comes with some great titles.
Sony’s PlayStation Blog announced March’s four PS Plus games today, a great combination of RPGs and exploration games. Get ready for fun, since most of these games will be available within the next few days, as March approaches. Here are this upcoming month’s games:
Final Fantasy VII Remake is an ARPG released in 2020 by Square Enix, the first in a long line of planned remakes for the original Final Fantasy VII. Explore Midgar, a dystopian cyberpunk metropolis in FFVII, which currently sits at an 87 on Metacritic.
“Square Enix’s modern reimagining of its iconic RPG boasts unforgettable characters, a mind-blowing story and epic battles. Return to the city of Midgar as Cloud Strife, former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the resistance group Avalanche. Initially executing daring raids against Shinra to fight back against its planet-threatening machinations, Cloud and his comrades are unaware of the epic consequences that await them.
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 classic original.
Please note the PS4 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake available to PlayStation Plus members is not eligible for the PS5 digital version upgrade.”
The game is currently available for $59.99 through major retailers.
Remnant: From The Ashes is an ARPG released by Gunfire Games and Perfect World Entertainment in 2019. The game follows a post-apocalyptic world overrun by monsters, with you one of the few survivors. The game current has a 77 on Metacritic.
“In this third-person survival action shooter, play as one of the last remnants of humanity attempting to retake a world overrun by monstrous, interdimensional invaders. Venture into dynamically-generated worlds alone or with up to two other survivors*, scavenging for supplies and modding your equipment to strengthen your chances of survival when tackling over 100 deadly varieties of enemy and battling epic bosses.”
The game retails for $19.99-$29.99 on multiple storeplaces.

Maquette releases March 2nd, 2021 from Annapurna Interactive and Graceful Decay. There’s not too much information on the game, other than its status as a recursive puzzle game with “objects that are simulatenously tiny and staggeringly huge.”
“All that is tiny is simultaneously huge in this intriguing first-person puzzler designed around a Escher-esque recursive simulation. Making its PlayStation 5 debut as part of next month’s PlayStation Plus lineup, Maquette sets you in the center of a world the rules of which are very different from our own. Solutions to puzzles require you to twist the world recursively – manipulating the landscape of a diorama will see those changes mirrored in the life-sized version that surrounds you. If you get perplexed by a puzzle, you can call up PS5’s Game Help*** for helpful hints to solve Maquette’s tougher conundrums.”
The game will retail for a price soon. Maybe.
Farpoint is a virtual reality FPS video game from SIE and Impulse Gear, originalyl released on 2017. The game takes place on a hostile alien planet, playable on both PSVR and PS4, currently with a 71 percent on Metacritic.

Optimised for the PlayStation VR Aim controller and fully playable with a DualShock wireless controller, strike out towards your crashed space station solo or with a friend in online co-op.
