Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Maquette, and more free this month on PS Plus

One of the biggest perks of having a PlayStation Plus membership is the free games you get every month. The free PlayStation Plus games offered this month, include three major titles all available on either the PS4 or PS5. Check out the list of games below with downloads available starting March 2. Enjoy the price of free until April 1, 2021.

★A masterful remake

Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Final Fantasy 7 is often regarded as one of the greatest games of all time, and in 2020, Square Enix’s long-awaited remake of the game finally launched to critical acclaim. Now, players who missed out on the remake of the original game can dive in for free and experience one of the best RPGs ever made. Note: The recently announced PS5 upgrade to Final Fantasy 7 Remake is NOT included with the PlayStation Plus version of the game. You’ll need to buy the PS4 version to take outright to get the upgrade or wait for the next-generation version to launch in June.

★ Save humanity

Remnant: From the Ashes

Remnant: From the Ashes released in 2019, and quickly took the survival action scene by storm. Often cited as one of the best games of its genre (and of the last generation), Remnant sees players attempting to retake a world that’s been overrun by interdimensional monsters.

★ A magical puzzler

Maquette (PS5 Only)

This month’s PS5 specific offering is Maquette, a brand new first-person puzzle game that will see players attempting to make their way out of an Escher-esque simulation. Finding the solutions to various puzzles will require you to move the world around in a variety of ways, so don’t be afraid to get creative. If you’re stuck, Sony says that Maquette will take advantage of the PlayStation 5’s Game Help system, which allows players to look for hints right from the Home Screen of the PS5.

Which is your favorite game you’ve gotten for free with PlayStation Plus?

March marks another stellar month for PlayStation Plus titles, as it offers two incredible games on top of a brand new game for those who are still trying to find things to play on their new PlayStation 5. Up first, Final Fantasy 7 Remake is probably one of the best remakes ever made, and faithfully recreates the original game while still adding enough new twists and turns to make it a must-play for those who love the series.

Elsewhere in this month’s lineup, Remnant: From the Ashes is another incredible game that shouldn’t be missed out on. Despite being about two years old, Remnant still serves as one of the best survival action games of the generation, and if you haven’t played it, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at just how good it is. Finally, Maquette is available for those who have a PS5 and looks to be an interesting puzzle game with some unique twists.

All in all, these games still represent a ton of different genres for fans to check out for no extra cost, which is what PlayStation Plus is all about. Let us know which game you’ve loved and which one you’re excited about this month! Shoot us a Tweet over at @AndroidCentral and tell us all about it!
