The free PS Plus games for March 2021 are officially on the way, and it's going to be a great month to have a PlayStation Plus subscription.
On top of offering Destruction Allstars for another month, the monthly lineup will bring in bangers across the board: the clear standout is Final Fantasy 7 Remake, but don't discount the good times waiting in Remnant: From the Ashes and Maquette. Plus, if you have a PSVR headset ready to go, Farpoint is a pretty good way to forget you live on planet Earth for a while.
The free PS Plus games for March 2021 will go live and replace the February selection on March 2, and after that, you'll have until April 5 to claim them. Here's more about each of the games on offer.
Free PS Plus games for March 2021
Final Fantasy 7 Remake (PS4)
Our long-awaited return to Midgar had lofty expectations to meet, and somehow it exceeded them. Final Fantasy 7 Remake made the Braver choice of not just retelling the beloved story but expanding and altering it in unexpected ways. Now the hard part will be waiting for the story to continue in the second part of the remake.
Note that claiming this won't entitle you to the free PS5 upgrade that will come along with Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade, you're only eligible for that if you purchased the PS4 version on its own.
Remnant: From the Ashes (PS4)
What if the guns in Bloodborne worked from more than 5 feet away? And everything was made of creepy plants? That's the basic gist of Remnant: From the Ashes, a heavily Souls-inspired game that lets you shoot and stab your way through procedurally generated worlds as you mod your weapons and improve your abilities. It's a great time in co-op, but it's still a lot of fun in single-player too.
This first-person puzzle game takes place in a recursive world that gets larger and larger the further you get from its center. You'll use this constant fact to make your way through tricky environments, and along the way you'll see how it all ties in to the very real ways that small issues can make big impacts in our relationships.
Farpoint (PS VR)
This sci-fi shooter was built from the ground up for PlayStation VR, making it one of the most impressive demos for the headset. It's even better if you have an Aim controller handy, but it still works fine even if you just play with a standard DualShock. This will probably be your best opportunity to try out the full online co-op mode as well, since a lot more people are about to start playing.
Destruction AllStars (PS5)
If you've ever felt like the Burnout series would translate pretty well into an arena-filling sporting event, then Destruction AllStars could be for you. This multiplayer derby puts players behind the wheel of a vehicle driven by an in-game superstar, tasking you with causing as much damage as possible across four different game modes. Use timing, tactics, and even vehicular parkour to outwit your foes and become the champion of the Global Destruction Federation.
This is the second month that Destruction Allstars will be a free PS Plus game - make sure you claim it by April 5 if you haven't already done so.
