The March 2019 PlayStation Plus games lineup has been revealed in a post on the US PlayStation Blog. There will also be some changes to PlayStation Plus this month. Starting in March, PlayStation Plus will no longer include PS3 and PS Vita games.
Going forward, PlayStation Plus will only feature two PlayStation 4 titles in its monthly games lineup. With that out of the way, here’s what PlayStation Plus subscribers will have to look forward to this month.
March Free Games Lineup:
Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered (2016)
This brings back one of the most influential Call of Duty games in the series. It is a revamped version of the 2007 hit, that includes enhanced textures, rendering, and high-dynamic range lighting to produce the highest graphical fidelity possible while maintaining its classic experience. This remaster comes with both single player and multiplayer. Whether you’re looking to relive the old days with the Campaign, or can’t wait to hop back into the Multiplayer, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered has got you covered. Variety Map Pack is sold separately.
From the developer of puzzle game/platformer, Braid (2008), Jonathan Blow created something beautiful, yet challenging, with The Witness. The Witness is a first-person puzzle game, set on a deserted tropical Island, filled to the brim with interconnected puzzles. If you like rewarding puzzle games, that also happen to look visually stunning, be sure to download The Witness.
Changes to PlayStation Plus
As mentioned above, PlayStation is now phasing out the inclusion of PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita titles within PlayStation Plus. PlayStation reminded users that they can still download last months PlayStation Plus titles until March 4, 2019. That list consists of:
- 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)
Mathew Groizard, Content Producer at Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe, explained that the removal of PS3 and PS Vita games from PlayStation Plus will not affect any of the other aspects of the live service. He said:
“Any PS3 and PS Vita games you’ve already downloaded, or will download, prior to March 8, 2019, won’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.”
