PlayStation Plus Free Games March 2023

Happy Valentine’s Day! And to celebrate the romance in the air, Sony is releasing three very romantic games for their next batch of freebies. And by very romantic, we mean not at all. But still worth checking out! And so, here is the next line-up of PlayStation Plus free games March 2023 available for download on Tuesday, March 7.

First, for both the PS4 and PS5, there’s Battlefield 2042, last year’s title in the Battlefield series. As the twelfth main installment, Battlefield 2042 differs from previous titles in that the game is solely multiplayer. Use an arsenal of futuristic weapons as you take down enemies in first-person shooting combat with three main gameplay modes.

Also, for the PS4, there’s Minecraft Dungeons. This spin-off from the Minecraft game was released in 2020. The game is a dungeon crawler with point-and-click hack and slash action which can be played solo or with a friend.

Lastly, for the PS4, there’s Code Vein, the 2019 action-RPG developed by Bandai Namco Studios. Inspired by such titles as Dark Souls and God Eater 3, the game is set in a post-apocalyptic dystopian open-world, where human corpses are brought back to life to fight emerging monsters.

All three titles in the PlayStation Plus free games March 2023 line-up have Platinum trophies to unlock.

Among them, Minecraft Dungeons is by far the easiest Platinum. Not a particularly difficult game, the Platinum will take between 15-20 hours depending on whether you play co-op or take your time in solo.

Code Vein is also not a particularly difficult Platinum. However, due to obtaining the required multiple endings, as well as a there being a trophy which requires grinding, expect around 75 hours of gameplay for this one.

Lastly, as you might expect from a multiplayer first-person shooter, the Platinum trophy for Battlefield 2042 is not an easy one to acquire, and will take well over 100 hours of gameplay. Players have also reported that some modes are void of players, which makes unlocking trophies all the more difficult.

Code Vein to receive Same Versions in WorldWide Release

In an interview with Dengeki Online, Code Vein‘s Producer Keita Iizuka and Director Hiroshi Yoshimura stated that Bandai Namco‘s upcoming title should hopefully receive a worldwide release of the same version of the game.


“We want to make a game that will excite and be enjoyed by players around the world,” stated the developers, translated by Gematsu. “Moreover, we took the recent game market into account and thought we should make a title that will launch us into worldwide recognition.”


The producers continued to say that they felt there was no difference between Japanese and Western gamers in terms of “the nature of dungeon crawling RPGs and their experience with them,” and so therefore the game will not be adjusted for oversea players. “We will make final adjustments for the overall direction based on a single standard.”


Code Vein is an upcoming action RPG set in a future post-apocalyptic dystopia, with a vampire theme. The game is developed and published by Bandai Namco, by the same team responsible for God Eater, which was a highly successful and critical acclaimed title in Japan. Code Vein is set to be released in 2018.
