Sony’s announcement may have come late—but that won’t stop six new games from hitting PlayStation Plus today, March 3, for players to download at no additional cost.
PS Plus is Sony’s service. In addition to allowing players to play PlayStation 4 games online, for a yearly fee, it also offers players the chance to download new games every month for free.
PlayStation 4 players will be able to download four games in March: Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee — New ‘n’ Tasty!, Valiant Hearts, CounterSpy, and OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood. PlayStation 3 players will have access to Papo & Yo and Sherlock Homes: Crime and Punishments. PlayStation Vita owners will be able to play CounterSpy and OlliOlli 2.
Most of these releases are on the older side, but definitely worth the time. Valiant Hearts was one of the most interesting gaming experiences of 2014, while Papo & Yo offers a fascinating allegorical look at a boy and his alcoholic father.
OlliOlli 2 is also brand new this week, the sequel to last year’s beloved skateboarding game.
All six games will be available to download for free for Plus subscribers when the PlayStation Store updates today. And while this month’s Plus offerings may not include a marquee name, there are plenty of titles worth trying out before titles like Bloodborne and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection dominate the end of March.
