One of the very best decisions that console makers Microsoft and Sony have made, is to offer free games to those who are members of their Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus programs each month. Hundreds of dollars worth of games for free each year. It makes the pill that is having to pay to play (online) much, much easier to swallow.
The free games being offered to PlayStation Plus members for March 2019 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below.
Two brand new titles join the PlayStation Plus free game lineup on March 5, offering dramatically different gameplay experiences. Letâ€™s take a look.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered
Activisionâ€™s colossal Call of Duty series is truly part of the fabric of modern gaming, and it was in 2007 that developer Infinity Ward took the console world by storm with its contemporary spin on the popular action series it helped create. 2016â€™s Modern Warfare Remastered brought the classic back in full HD for a new generation of gamers, while respectfully retaining its first-class gunplay and brilliant level design.
Download it with PS Plus this month to relive a true FPS classic (in glorious dynamic 4K on PS4 Pro when played on a PS4 Pro system and a 4K display).
From the developer of the charming puzzle-platformer Braid back in 2008, creator Jonathan Blow promptly returned to the drawing board and spent the next eight years working on an ambitious follow-up.
The result was 2016â€™s The Witness â€” an enigmatic first-person puzzler set on a seemingly-deserted tropical island, dotted from one end to the other with a vast network of interconnected puzzles.
Boasting spellbinding narrative twists and an unbeatable sense of satisfaction in conquering each puzzle, The Witness is a benchmark in design and environmental storytelling. Download The Witness on PS Plus this month for a slow-burning test of the old grey matter.
Both titles will be available to download from PlayStation Store from March 5 to April 1, 2019.
In the meantime, youâ€™ve still got time to download Februaryâ€™s PlayStation Plus titles.
Hitmanâ€™s heady cocktail of sandbox assassinations should keep you busy trying to perfect the flawless hit, while mastering For Honorâ€™s â€˜Art of Battleâ€™ for truly devastating takedowns will take time and patience.
If you havenâ€™t tried them, then nowâ€™s your chance â€” theyâ€™ll be available until March 4, 2019.
As a reminder, PS3 and PS Vita games will no longer be part of the monthly free games line-up for PS Plus. If you havenâ€™t added the following PS3 and PS Vita titles from the February games line-up to your library yet, they will remain available until March 8, 2019:
Divekick, PS3 (Cross-Buy with PS Vita)
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3
Gunhouse, PS Vita (Cross-Buy with PS4)
Rogue Aces, PS Vita (Cross-Buy with PS4)
Any PS3 and PS Vita games youâ€™ve already downloaded, or will download, prior to March 8, 2019, wonâ€™t be affected by this change. Those games will still be part of your PS Plus games library as long as you remain a member. Your game saves and other benefits of PS Plus will also remain the same.
Finally, the PS Plus specials this month have some great titles including Yakuza Kiwami 2 at 40% off and both Hollow Knight and Just Cause 4 at 50% off. Act fast! The PS Plus specials for February are available until March 5, 2019.
We thank you for your support and weâ€™ll see you next month!
