PlayStation reveals four free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers
PlayStation has confirmed recently that there are four free titles that will be made available for PlayStation Plus subscribers starting on Tuesday, March 1 for both PS5 and PS4.
“The March PlayStation Plus lineup will test your survival, racing and combat skills in equal measure. Prove you’ve got what it takes to survive a deadly island wilderness in Ark: Survival Evolved, outpace the competition in Team Sonic Racing and sharpen your reflexes in cyberpunk first-person adventure Ghostrunner,” the PlayStation’s blog reads.
“In addition to those titles, team up and take on fearsome, supernatural foes in bonus game Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, which joins the lineup this month. All games will be available to download starting Tuesday, March 1.”
As confirmed on the blog, the four titles are Ghostrunner (PS5), Ark: Survival Evolved (PS4), Team Sonic Racing (PS4), and the bonus title Ghost of Tsushima: Legends (PS4 / PS5).
PlayStation will also be releasing starting on March 15, a standalone version of Grand Theft Auto: Online as a native PS5 release separated from its base game Grand Theft Auto 5. It appears that PS Subscribers will be given three-month window access instead of adding the game to their collection.
Mentioned previously are the four titles set to be made free for all PS subscribers, for those who are not familiar with all four, Ark Survival: Evolved is an MMO survival game where players are awakened on a mysterious island and required to adapt to the island quickly.
The island is a hostile environment. In order to survive, players must build shelters, craft items, find resources, tame or kill dinosaurs and other creatures which players may encounter on the island. Ark is an online game where players may team up or hunt down others.
Team Sonic Racing is an arcade-like competitive kart racing game and a spin-off from Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog Series. Players will be controlling one out of 15 characters from the series, compete in races and unlock more options of vehicle customizations for a specific racing playstyle.
Ghostrunner is a single-player hardcore FPP action platformer slashing game set within a grim cyberpunk megastructure. Players will be given a monomolecular katana to fight their ways against enemies, dodge projectiles with superhuman reflexes, and use a variety of abilities to assist players in surviving the world of Ghostrunner. The game employs one hit and one kill mechanics to up the combat’s tempo.
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends is a standalone multiplayer experience of the hit title Ghost of Tsushima. Inspired by Japanese folk tales, cultures, and mythology for players to enjoy with friends. Legends provide four unique classes such as Samurai, Hunter, Ronin, and Assassin to take on the game’s story missions, survival mode, or challenge fellow players in a competitive Rivals.
Important things to note
PlayStation added additional pointers for its upcoming March free titles lineups. Legends will not be made available for players who owned Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut. Other than that, players must add March’s free titles to their game library before all four titles leave on Monday, April 4.
Additionally, since the game is made free on PS Plus, online multiplayer requires PS Plus membership, which is subject to the subscription fee of the online service. After adding the game to the library after April 4, players will be able to access them with an active PS Plus subscription.
