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)

  • What was with the delay of the announcement and lack of communication?

  • FlashDrivePrime

    Wow. That long a wait for one of the worst months I can remember. Great job.

  • Valiant Hearts was one of my favorite games of 2014. For those of you that have not played it, it is AWESOME. That last scene… so good.

  • mikeoxlong182

    Olli Olli 2 makes this long wait worth it! Probably the only game I’m gonna download though, maybe Oddworld after I check some reviews.

  • dariocba2014

    PLEASEEE, ADD CROSS BUY FOR VALIANT HEARTS AND ABE’S

  • whitepony02027

    Is it just me or is it impossible to not read Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee — New ‘n’ Tasty! without Sid’s voice in your head?

  • bbswarrior_11

    ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED???

    Now seriously, this is pretty dope. Worth the wait and the near fainting of some. I only have Valiant hearts, which I haven´t played yet but this is so cool. OlliOlli 2 for free!!!!

  • MyFinalThoughts

    Best month yet <3

  • Goodacre0081

    thanks for the games Playstation. now can all you entitled whiners stop complaining already?

  • We waited….for THIS???

    I’ll cry myself to sleep tonight……

  • lostcityrocker

    Just bought Valiant Hearts a few days ago… oh well

  • KidGreengene: i was wondering whicj one held up the annoucment

  • I’ll finally be able to play valiant Hearts

  • Well worth the wait :-)

  • Odd, Papo & Yo is still listed at 9,99$. All other games are listed correctly.

  • La_maravich_22

    I would like to see AAA Games for the next PS Plus Free Games in the next months .

    Any news about new features to the PS4 like resume and suspend, delete multiple messages and notification , notify when your friends is online , organize your friends, folders to organize your games and apps , ps4 video chat like the ps3, DLNA support,
    Option to see your movies pictures and music on a external hdd

  • I already have four of the six, but man, this is a fantastic lineup. Valiant Hearts and Oddworld were two of the best games I played last year. And Papo & Yo is great. Counterspy is kinda weak, but they can’t all be amazing.

    Great stuff.

    Just picked up the PS4 + Playstation TV + PSN Plus deal from Gamestop last week, and I’ve gotta say, the deals and freebies are much greener on this side of the pasture than those on the Xbox Gold’s side (I’ve had an Xbox One since October).

    It’s generous of you to make not only FOUR free titles available for my brand new next generation console but also one of them a near day one release of a top indie title. Very, very happy. If a delayed announcement of the free games is necessary to bring such incredible releases, I say announce ’em late every month.

    Thanks, Sony.

  • I love how much of a non-spoiler that is for Papo & Yo. (Not sarcasm)

  • Awesome lineup!! Looking forward to putting in time to these great games! Back log just got pushed back even more!

  • This line up is fantastic. If you can’t find a game on this list you will enjoy, you should feel bad about yourself.

  • Excellent lineup! Great titles for every platform! Thanks, Sony!!!

  • Oh dear lord in heaven, when will we have some games with meat on their bones? I either own them or don’t care about them. Guess I’ll stop buying psn games altogether since they get on plus eventually.

  • Beyond!

  • HentayHinata

    Sherlock Holmes or Thief for PS4 not for PS3 next time.
    We want KNACK or Killzone! We want only one game instead of two indiegames.
    Xbox won this month with Rayman LEGENDS.

  • PauloMusicMan

    kkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

    WTF? All that wait to another 2D games? After finish Transistor I’ll come back to my games until 3/24 to play Bloodborne =)

    I guess my trophy list have too much indies right now, as Dust, Apotheon, Transistor, Swapper, Strider… Excelent Games, but… Is enough to me. Time to have a break. For you who are pleased with the announcement, good games.

  • @el_casual where do you get your ps+ for free? I’d love to know since Sony makes me PAY for mine.

  • Why? Just why is Valiant Hearts only free for PS4? I really wanted to play it on my PS3.

  • masrockmario

    <Damn terrible month AGAIN!

  • rafael_martines

    Hope for Rain being free on April PS+ :)

  • Thank you! Awesome line up.

  • killerlightning

    Not bad but why not at least AAA game for PS4, been wanting sherlock holmes and would have been perfect for ps4 but i guess PS3 is fine with me. Like the 4 games for ps4, but id like to know you was the developer who backed out? Would Lords of the Fallen or Wolfenstein be the one of them? Been wanting to try Valiant Hearts, which is last indie i wanted to play, the otheres were transistor and child of light, which i both have now.

  • Looks like a pretty good month but seriously, no information on why the list was late or even bothering to acknowledge it? What is it with Sorny and their constant lack of communication?

  • Olli olli 2 :D did not saw that one coming and Valiant Hearts :D, I am a happy costumer.

  • Why Valiant Hearts is not free for PS3?????

  • I live in Argentina and buying games here is really expensive.

    I really appreciate the IGC every month, and this one is no exception!

  • >PS+ IGC
    >Playstation Plus Indie Game Collection

  • ShadowStar83x

    Pretty good lineup. Only complaint was the long wait.

  • I don’t know why everyone was complaining about the late announcement.
    Is not bad, is awesome as every month!
    Thanks Sid!

  • Great line of PS Plus games. I was very worried that the rumors were true and the PS Plus line up was being delayed!! Any word on PSN Sales??

  • You guys sure took your time to give us the preview hu?…but daaamn it was worth the wait.
    Fantastic month…besides Papo Yo that already have…all the other games are games I wanted to buy or try.Oddworld and Counter Spy…hell yeah.
    Thanks Sony.

  • Great month!

  • Looks like the reason for the delay is that Dishonored was supposed to be free this month. I bet they were a last-minute cancellation. Still no reason for the Sony folks not to say “We’re still finalizing the titles. Sorry for the delay.”

  • @5 — matter of opinion mate.

    Vita CLEARLY has the best line up of the month.
    Then PS4.

    Sorry PS3… You got a bum deal.

  • Glad to see OlliOlli 2 there. The first one was fantastic. Can’t wait to play this sequel on my Vita

  • Great selection as always. I want to know how all these people complaining have managed to finish all the games they’ve got on PS+ so far… I’ve got stuff from 12 months ago I still haven’t had time to touch.

  • VeritableHero

    CounterSpy and Valiant Hearts? Yay!

    Lack of communication from Sony? Boo! (But is par for the course, unfortunately.)

  • BacktoNarnia

    Another great month! I’m particularly excited for Valiant Hearts and OlliOlli 2!

  • These all look like newgrounds games.

  • I’m sorry Sony didn’t cater to each and every one of you people’s wants and preferences. Wtf people. $50 a year, we get all this and you still complain? I’ve subscribed to PS+ since the first year, and the amount of titles I have amassed for my PS3, Vita and PS4 together is INSANE! I haven’t even had time to try all of them. Thank you Sony. Some of us appreciate it!
