In a post on PlayStation Netherlands Facebook pages Information was released on Friday about the four games that you can take with you as part of the PlayStation Plus subscription. The post has since been removed – probably because someone pressed a button a little early.
Unless something is terribly wrong, the four games are Final Fantasy VII Remake, Remnant: From the Ashes and Farpoint VR for PlayStation 4, and Maquette for PlayStation 5.
The games are available for download free between March 2 and April 5. If you put the games in the library during that time, you will have access until you end the PlayStation Plus subscription.
Critics from last year
The raisin in the sausage here is naturally enough Final Fantasy VII Remake which ended up high on many grade lists in 2020. The new version of the classic Japanese role-playing game received good reviews when it came out last year, and so new yet that it can be considered one of the fresher big games that have ended up in the PlayStation Plus pile.
In The PlayStation 5 version of the Final Fantasy VII Remake is coming this summer, and anyone who owns the game can now upgrade for free. It still seems like the PlayStation Plus edition is exempt from this upgrade race, we should believe one listing on PlayStation Store in Japan.
Remnant: From the Ashes has also built up a good reputation since its launch in 2019. The game is often compared to the Souls games, and clearly wades a bit in the same action-RPG genre. What many still point out as the most important thing about the game is the ability to play with up to three other players.
The PlayStation VR game Farpoint is a slightly more lukewarm feature in the pile. When we reviewed the game in 2017 we said it was a lot of fun here, but in the end there were some shards of glass in the experience.
– Okay, they have the foundations in place, but I feel it’s time to move on from the start-up phase to the VR era we are in now. I expect a little more than demos and experiences without much substance, and hope that Sony will see the value in designing a good story and a living universe around the good technical properties they have now proven that they can achieve with PlayStation VR, wrote our reviewer.
Last out – and the only PlayStation 5 feature – is Maquette, which will also be released on the market at the same time as it is added to the PlayStation Plus game stack in March. The game seems to be a first-person puzzle game where perspective changes the size of the objects in the world you are exploring.
