Sony has revealed the free games PlayStation Plus subscribers will have a chance to tackle in March. Following a nice February headlined by For Honor and Hitman, Sony is serving up the multiplayer favorite Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and head-scratching puzzler The Witness in March. Check out a brief trailer for the new additions, below.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered
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.
From the developer of the charming puzzle-platformer Braid back in 2008, The Witness is 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 ol’ grey matter.
As you’ve likely noticed, PS Plus subscribers are only getting two free games this month – that’s because Sony will no longer be offering free PS3 and PS Vita titles. This has been coming for a long time, but still, it’s kind of disappointing that Sony isn’t replacing the lost PS3/PS Vita games with anything. How about a third PS4 game? Or maybe a free theme or two or something?
At least the couple games we’re getting this month are pretty good ones! The Witness is a top-notch puzzle game, and you can’t go wrong with the CoD that started the phenomenon. What are your thoughts on March’s free PS Plus games? Which game will you be tackling first?
