March 2023’s PlayStation Plus Essential games have been announced
Battlefield 2042, Minecraft Dungeons and Code Vein will be ‘free’ to subscribers
Sony Interactive Entertainment has officially confirmed the PlayStation Plus Essential games for March 2023.
March’s PlayStation Plus Essential titles are:
- Battlefield 2042 (PS5 / PS4)
- Minecraft Dungeons (PS4)
- Code Vein (PS4)
Subscribers will be able to claim the games from March 7 until April 3.
February 2023’s PlayStation Plus Essential games are still available to claim until March 6.
This month’s games are OlliOlli World (PS5 / PS4), Mafia Definitive Edition (PS4), Evil Dead: The Game (PS5 / PS4) and Destiny 2: Beyond Light (PS5 / PS4 DLC).
Essential is the entry-level PlayStation Plus membership tier, which offers subscribers access to a few ‘free’ games every month.
Players can continue to play these games even after they’re no longer available to claim at the end of the monthly period as long as they continue to subscribe to PlayStation Plus Essential (or a higher tier).
Once their membership ends, they’ll no longer be able to play these games unless they resubscribe.
Sony also revealed some of the games that will be coming next month to the PlayStation Plus Game Catalogue, which is available to players subscribed to the Extra or Premium tiers of PlayStation Plus.
According to Sony, March’s Game Catalogue titles will include Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Ghostwire: Tokyo, Rainbow Six: Extraction, Tchia and Immortals: Fenyx Rising.
Of the five games announced, Tchia is the only one that’s a brand new title. The open-world sandbox adventure game is inspired by the development studio’s homeland of New Caledonia, and will be available on PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium on day one.
February’s PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium titles, which were just added on Tuesday, include Horizon Forbidden West, The Quarry, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard and Scarlet Nexus.
