PS Plus: Free Games for March 2015

Sid Shuman's Avatar Posted by Director, SIEA Social Media

Another collection of excellent games joins PlayStation Plus this month, and you’ve come to the right place for details!

Starting things off on PS4 is Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee — New ‘n’ Tasty! This side-scrolling adventure reboots the PlayStation classic with new visuals, new sound, enhanced controls, and even more dark humor than before. Also coming to the PS4 lineup is Valiant Hearts: The Great War. This colorful puzzle game carries with it a heavy subject matter, as it follows four intersecting lives (and a loyal canine companion) during the first World War.

On PS3, gamers with PS Plus can download the critically-acclaimed Papo & Yo, alongside the wit-inducing Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments. And on PS Vita, watch out for OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood and CounterSpy.

These games will be available for Plus members when PlayStation Store updates later today.

March’s PlayStation Plus Preview
Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee — New ‘n’ Tasty! (PS4)

Free for PS Plus Members
It’s the return of a PlayStation classic! Join Abe in this rebooted platformer that has enhanced visuals, sound, and controls. Help him free his people from a dastardly meat processing facility, and see why gamers fell in love with good ol’ Abe in the first place!

Valiant Hearts: The Great War (PS4)

Free for PS Plus Members
The story of intersecting lives that suffer under the impossible duress of the first World War. Inspired by actual WWI tokens from the friends and family of the development team, this game may be colorful, but tells a dark and devastating story. Bring a box of tissues!

PS Plus March 2015
Papo & Yo (PS3)

Papo & Yo is the story of a young boy, Quico, and his best friend, Monster. Monster is a huge beast with razor-sharp teeth, but that doesn’t scare Quico away from playing with him. Build your friendship with Monster by solving puzzles together and adventuring through a magical, surrealist world.

CounterSpy (PS Vita | PS4 | PS3)

NICE. Here comes the comments to all the “gamers” that want EVERITHING free.

Totally worth the wait. Well played, Sony!

snarls200 said:

War_Lion108 said:

March 3rd, 11:32 am

Are you still doing announcement videos with gameplay from all of them with a description?

Shoryyuken said:

March 3rd, 11:32 am

FINALLY. Jeeeeze. The 1 out of 5 rating though is unfair guys c’mon. At least it’s still coming today. Thanks Sony.

Yay!

PanTheMan16 said:

March 3rd, 11:33 am

@5 – Did you even look at the list? OlliOlli2 and CounterSpy are some of the better games that have hit Vita’s IGC.

Dark_Yoda_313 said:

Welcome to the March IGC – The Games Nobody Bought Edition!

Just playing.

Wanted to try counterspy. Guess I’ll try olli olli2. Why did I think valiant hearts was on vita? Any reason why it’s not cross buy with ps3?

Elvick_ said:

March 3rd, 11:33 am

Cool, some good games here that I have wanted. :D

Thanks!

zingakun said:

March 3rd, 11:33 am

Valiant Hearts is a must have! I’m glad it will reach more people now that it will be free on PS+

And my Vita says “Thank You” for those two titles!!

samv33 said:

March 3rd, 11:33 am

Pretty good. Glad I’m a PS4 owner. The setting of Valiant Hearts intrigues me.

gerneric123 said:

March 3rd, 11:33 am

Counterspy has a lot of performance issues on Vita. It’s not a good port (shocking, since it’s from SCEA! /s) and not something you should be promoting.

Meh…

IdentityFound said:

Damn finally

lambda-teos said:

as a psvita / ps4 user

kinda… sad…

psvita support is just wrong.. and ps4 well.. valiant heart looks pretty good

Trothgar said:

March 3rd, 11:33 am

Wow.. 4 games for PS4…awesome.

Domi-Origato said:

March 3rd, 11:33 am

Awesome! OlliOlli2 will be great, and all the people will stop complaining.

greggysmalls1 said:

March 3rd, 11:33 am

This is unacceptable. The huge delay in announcing the line up only draws attention to the lacking quality. The competition is offering three AAA games this month.

How can you even announce this line up with a straight face sony!?

Was hoping for BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma like Japan got but there’s always next month! Excited for OlliOlli 2 though!

Spaden said:

TheZorak said:

March 3rd, 11:34 am

Amazing selection. Thanks!

Domi-Origato said:

March 3rd, 11:34 am

Wait, scratch that. People still complaining. If the competition is giving away better games, then why don’t you switch, huh?

Warped said:

March 3rd, 11:34 am

I haven’t even finished Olli Olli 1 and now I have to go through 2! Thanks guys, keep taking my time! =)
Great line up can’t wait to try Valiant hearts I love history and what a beautiful art style. Very Very good job!

Bad bad month :(

Fantasymaker said:

March 3rd, 11:34 am

Lacking first month I’m rather disappointed but not going to complain just got my ps4 and looking forward to better titles later just means imma stick to ffxiv this month

PanTheMan16 said:

March 3rd, 11:34 am

@13 – I bought 3 of them, and if I hadn’t bought any, I would honestly be excited for all 6 games. Maybe you’re one of those “I don’t like indies. I only play Destiny” “gamers”.

Good selection

sasquatch23 said:

March 3rd, 11:35 am

Eh, ps4 is kinda light but good stuff on the other 2. What was the contract hang up that delayed the announcement? I remember reading these were planned months ahead so I was wondering what happened.

NX_Nytrux said:

March 3rd, 11:35 am

Valiant Hearts! Thanks

morris_family said:

March 3rd, 11:35 am

That’s it? Really? Was hoping for some REALLY good titles as this announcement didn’t release until today….

KidGreengene said:

March 3rd, 11:35 am

@8: I think they already said that they were trying to hash out deals. These things take contract discussions with the publishers for compensation.

Awesome AWESOME lineup, guys. I know people will be bothered that it wasn’t Helldivers but man, this looks good. Every single one of those are must-plays.

Naksito said:

March 3rd, 11:35 am

Awesome Lineup! I always wanted to play Oli Oli 2! I had the first one but I didn’t like it that much.
