PS Plus subscribers will get Shadow Of The Colossus for free in March

Sony has announced the next batch of freebies available to PS Plus members, and the new offerings include a classic. PlayStation 4 owners will have access to Shadow of the Colossus and Sonic Forces in March via their subscription.

Shadow of the Colossus is an exciting addition for longtime Sony fans. The beloved PlayStation 2 game received a high-definition remake in 2018, which modernized the game’s graphics. Subscribers will receive the new version of the game for free, as long as they remember to add it to their library while it’s available.

For Sonic fans, 2017’s Sonic Forces will be available to download in March. The game, which was somewhat overshadowed by Sonic Mania when it came out and received middling reviews from critic, features a customization option that lets players create their own character.

Sonic Mania was previously offered as a PS Plus freebie in June 2019.

Sega seems to be trying to capitalize on its franchise’s momentum following the recent success of the Sonic The Hedgehog film. Microsoft recently revealed its Games With Gold lineup for March, and it includes Sonic Generations. Xbox fans are getting the better end of the deal, as Generations is one of the series’ more positively received games.

Games With Gold members can also claim Batman: The Enemy Within, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 in March. They can only be downloaded by players with an active Xbox Live Gold subscription.

The PS Plus titles will be available to download on March 3. As always, subscribers will need to add the games to their library in order to keep them. Players will have until April 6 to claim their games.

As an added bonus, subscribers will gain access to a Predator: Hunting Grounds trial weekend starting on March 27.

In the meantime, PS Plus players still have a chance to claim February’s games. Bioshock: The Collection and The Sims 4 are currently available until March 2. PS Plus has loaded players up with classics in recent months. Subscribers got the Uncharted Collection in January and The Last of Us Remastered in October.  Shadow of the Colossus is another essential library addition for players who are looking to complete their collection of landmark PlayStation games.

3 underrated PS Plus games you should play this weekend (May 3-5)
The main character of Tales of Kenzera: Zau stands with two elemental items.

PlayStation Plus Premium and Extra have been around for almost two years, and during that time the subscription service has established itself as an ample competitor to Xbox Game Pass. That means there is a wealth of great games for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 owners to check out if they're looking for something to play this weekend. I think PS Plus subscribers should be looking toward some of the more underrated games in the subscription service this weekend too.

I have three particular picks in mind. The first is an enjoyable Metroidvania that came to PS Plus' game catalog when it launched just a couple of weeks ago and deserves a lot more attention than it's getting. After that, there's an action-platformer that pays homage to series like Ninja Gaiden that you should check out before it leaves the catalog. Finally, there's a PS2-era Star Wars game that fills the niche a recently canceled game would have.

You don’t want to miss PS Plus’ great free game lineup this May
Jack holds a sword in Ghostrunner 2 key art.

A new month is upon us, so another batch of PlayStation Plus Essential's monthly free titles is nearly upon us. On May 7, four games will be available for no additional cost to PS Plus Essential subscribers: EA Sports FC 24, Ghostrunner 2, Tunic, and Destiny 2: Lightfall.

EA Sports FC 24 is the latest soccer game to come from the EA Sports brand. Historically, this series was known as FIFA, but EA had to rebrand it after its partnership with that organization ended. Despite that, EA Sports FC 24 is still very much an iteration of FIFA 23, so if you enjoy soccer games and don't already own EA Sports FC 24, it's worth a download. Next is Ghostrunner II, a thrilling first-person action game that launched last October. It's the kind of game that makes you feel like a badass as you precisely platform and strike enemies before they can kill you in one hit.
