St. Patrick’s Day is fast approaching. And while many of us may not even be Irish, we still like to dress up in green and celebrate. But instead of needing a leprechaun, we’ve got Sony guiding us to the free games at the end of the rainbow, with a total of four freebies this month. And so, here are the PlayStation Plus free games March 2021 which are available for download on Tuesday, March 2.
First, there’s Final Fantasy VII Remake, the 2020 complete revamp of the original Final Fantasy VII first released in 1997 on the PlayStation One. Follow Cloud on his adventures as he teams up with the eco-terrorist group Avalanche to stop the evil corporation Shinra from sucking up the planet’s life essence.
Next, there’s Remnant: From the Ashes, a third-person action RPG featuring game mechanics similar to the Souls series. Wander a post-apocalyptic earth as you set out to put an end to the inter-dimensional evil known as Root that has destroyed the world.
Specifically for the PS5, there’s Maquette, a brand-new puzzle adventure. Recreate memories by performing actions on a table, which causes the outside larger world to follow suit.
Lastly, Sony is also giving away the PSVR action shooter title, Farpoint. Set on a hostile planet, use the PSVR Aim Controller to destroy dangerous aliens and stay alive.
All four PlayStation Plus Free Games March 2021 have Platinum trophies to unlock.
The easiest one, by far, is Maquette. If you follow a video walkthrough, the Platinum can be unlocked in under 5 hours.
The Platinum for Remnant: From the Ashes will take around 60-70 hours of gameplay, but is of average difficulty despite borrowing mechanics from the Souls series.
Final Fantasy VII Remake will require two full playthroughs, one on Hard mode, which in turn will need a lot of grinding to prepare for. Expect around 70-80 hours for the Platinum, and to be challenged during your Hard mode run.
The most difficult of the four Platinums is Farpoint which, though can be done in 30-40 hours, will require some serious shooting skills as well as some strategies.
