This months list of PS Plus free titles is a lot shorter than normal, mainly because this will be the first month now that PS3 and PS Vita games will no longer be offered. That means starting from this month, only PS4 games will be offered as free games going forward. I guess that makes sense seeing as the PS3 and PS Vita are much older systems and the PS4 isn’t exactly backwards compatible. Despite this change, you will still have access to all the previous PS3 and PS Vita games that are in your library.
Without further delay, these are your two freebie games for March: Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered and The Witness.
Activision’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. 2016’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 2016’s The Witness — 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.
