PS Plus: Free Games for March 2015
4 Author Replies

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

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)

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!

  • Excellent selection. Thanks, Sid.

    • Sid Shuman

      Glad you like them! Apologies this month went a bit later than usual.

  • BeLow-Me-Now

    Thank you

  • 4 games for PS4.. Good stuff!

  • April PS+ IGC please.

    Nah, jk. Good lineup. Thank you…. FINALLY!

  • Absolutely abysmal month for Vita games. Wow.

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

  • Totally worth the wait. Well played, Sony!

  • not bad. wondering why the delay though

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

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

  • PoppaWheelie


  • @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

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

    Just playing.

  • XxV-Reda-VxX


  • 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?

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


  • 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!!

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

  • 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

    Damn finally

  • as a psvita / ps4 user

    kinda… sad…

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

  • Wow.. 4 games for PS4…awesome.

  • Domi-Origato

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

  • greggysmalls1

    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!?

  • Wow, best PS+ drop in months. Thank you!

  • First time playing an odd world game since the demo from the og xbox. Can’t wait!

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

  • Well,that’s disappointing …

  • Wee more mini games… if i wanted that stuff i would have bought at vita instead on my PS4.. BAH

  • Boy am I glad I didn’t renew my sub.

  • Word olliolli2 woot

  • IGC = Instant Game Collection => Indie Game Collection.

    You should rename your Service, Sony.


  • Great month for Vita!

  • dariocba2014

    I don’t care about this, where is the igc…..oh wait

  • Amazing selection. Thanks!

  • Domi-Origato

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

  • 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!

  • Hey look at that, they’re finally up!!!

  • BlackStar--Z

    Bad bad month :(

  • Fantasymaker

    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

  • @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”.

  • Not terrible. :)

  • Good selection

  • 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.

  • Valiant Hearts! Thanks

  • morris_family

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

  • KidGreengene

    @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.

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

  • Ummm…
