The Final Fantasy VII Remake made a surprise appearance at Sony’s recent State of Play with the announcement of Yuffie DLC as well as a battle royale prequel. However, it was also mentioned one day afterward as part of the PS Plus March 2021 free games announcement. Some people are still asking what are the PS Plus March 2021 free games, and here you’ll discover the titles as well as an explanation of the small print concerning the Final Fantasy VII Remake and its PS5 upgrade.
As of writing, you only have one day left to download the February freebies of Control Ultimate Edition and Concrete Genie. Destruction AllStars will remain available at no added cost for Sony subscribers exclusively on PS5 until April 5th, but it will then become a part of the PSN store for the cost of $20.
While you should definitely pick up the February selection of goodies, below you’ll discover what the PS Plus March 2021 free games are all about.
Final Fantasy VII Remake PS Plus PS5 upgrade
The PS Plus version of the Final Fantasy VII Remake is not eligible for the free PS5 upgrade.
Those who already bought the Final Fantasy VII Remake will get the PS5 upgrade for free, but those who get it through PS Plus will need to buy Intergrade.
Sony and Square Enix’s omission above is disappointing as it means PS Plus subscribers yet to make the leap to next-gen will need to buy Intergrade if they want to experience the 60FPS gameplay, photo mode, and other improvements arriving on June 10th.
While the above is disappointing, those who are eligible for the free PS5 upgrade should know that they will still need to buy the Yuffie DLC separately.
This is another disappointing bit of small print for an Intergrade package that is already as confusing as the game’s remade plot.
What are the free games for PS Plus March 2021?
The free games for PS Plus March 2021 are the Final Fantasy VII Remake and Farpoint.
In addition, the other free games for PS Plus March 2021 are Remnant From the Ashes, as well as Marquette which will be exclusive to PS5 owners.
Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII Remake needs no introduction, meanwhile Farpoint is a PSVR title optimised for both the Dualshock as well as the PlayStation VR aim controller.
Remnant From the Ashes is a notoriously difficult third-person survival shooter, and Marquette is a calming first-person puzzle game.
Final Fantasy VII, Farpoint, and Remnant will all be available on PS4, meanwhile Marquette will be exclusive to PS5.
You will have until April 5th to grab all the titles mentioned above at no added fee.
