Sony typically reveals next month’s PS Plus games on the last Wednesday of every month, excluding the holiday season. So, it was strange that Wednesday came and went, and there was no PS Plus reveal for March. Some thought it would take place at the State of Play on Thursday (February 25), but it wasn’t shown there either. However, it seems that the wait was worth it.
Upcoming PS Plus games for March 2021 include Final Fantasy 7 Remake, the PS5 game Maquette, Remnant from the Ashes, and Farpoint VR. Each of these games is interesting in its own right, although FF7 Remake comes with an important caveat, and they will be available on March 2.
Obviously the big draw is that Final Fantasy 7 Remake is the headline. Square Enix had several reveals related to Final Fantasy 7 yesterday, ranging from the game’s PS5 update, Yuffie DLC, and mobile derivative games such as “demake” Ever Crisis and the Battle Royale game, Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier. FF7 Remake PS4 owners will be able to get the PS5 update for free, although not the DLC, but that only applies to those who have purchased it; The PS Plus version of the game will not be upgraded to PS5, so players would have to buy the PS5 version for $ 70.

The other three games are interesting in their own right – Maquette is gifted to PS5 owners as a game on launch day. Maquette is a recursive puzzle game that might not be to everyone’s liking, but it’s designed with the PS5 in mind and it’s free. Remnant: From the Ashes, on the other hand, has sometimes been called “Dark Souls with Guns.” While that’s a bit reductive, Remnant is a good game on its own and one that any fan of third-person shooter games should check out. And to top it all, there is also Farpoint VR. While VR is not that popular yet, it is also a special occasion when a VR game enters the service.
These games will be available on March 2 and will run through April; Fans will also be able to claim Destruction AllStars during the month. As recently revealed, it appears Oddworld: Soulstorm will replace Destruction AllStars, but either way, subscribers have until March 2 to claim the February 2020 games: Concrete Genie and Control: Ultimate Edition.
A PS Plus subscription is required to get these games.
