PS Plus Kicks Off the Year with a Bang 🎮💥

Although Sony's PS Plus service started the year with a strong impact, the true climax may not occur until the end of February and March.

February 28 A Game-Changing Day for PS Plus?

PS Plus wasted no time and kicked off the year with excellent additions to the Essential Tier, further complemented by great games for the PS Plus Extra and Premium tiers. However, this may just be the beginning of a great few months for PS Plus. While it may seem like we’re getting ahead of ourselves, PS Plus is expected to announce the PS Plus Essential games for March 2024 on February 28, and that may be when Sony fully kicks the service into overdrive. Of course, there’s a whole month before then and what February adds remains to be seen, but between what January adds and what March could add, it’s clear fans are eating well.

The PS Plus free games for January 2024 are A Plague Tale: Requiem, Evil West, and Nobody Saves the World. Each game is a solid addition in its own right, while letting the award-winning action-adventure game Plague Tale: Requiem still shine. Evil West is an over-the-top action supernatural and weird west-type game that is a lot of fun, while the shapeshifting “Nobody” of Nobody Saves the World is more than compelling enough to adventure through each dungeon.

Of course, PS Plus didn’t end there in January. The PS Plus Extra games include top-notch titles like Resident Evil 2, Just Cause 3, and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands: Next-Level Edition, among many others. PS Plus Premium includes several nostalgia-filled titles: Legend of Mana, Rally Cross, Secret of Mana, Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace, and Street Fighter: 30th Anniversary Collection. But all of these may still not hold a candle to the February 28 announcement.

The Best is Yet to Come: The PS Plus Games of March 🔥🎮

Barring any unusual delay, Sony will announce the PS Plus free games for March 2024 on February 28. It’s entirely likely that PS Plus Extra and Premium meet the high bar set for the Essential games in March. For the uninitiated, Sony tends to add some of its best games on the service in March. Whether that’s intentional, coincidental, or entirely circumstantial is hard to say, but none of the aforementioned games really hit the same high marks as Bloodborne and Final Fantasy 7 Remake, both of which were added to PS Plus in March 2018 and 2021, respectively.

The Best PS Plus Games of March (2018-2022): – PS Plus Free Games for March 2018: Bloodborne, Ratchet and Clank, Legend of Kay Anniversary, Might No. 9, Claire: Extended Cut, Bombing Busters – PS Plus Free Games for March 2019: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, The Witness – PS Plus Free Games for March 2020: Shadow of the Colossus, Sonic Forces – PS Plus Free Games for March 2021: Maquette, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Remnant: From the Ashes, Farpoint – PS Plus Free Games for March 2022: Ark: Survival Evolved, Team Sonic Racing, Ghostrunner, Ghost of Tsushima: Legends

Some of these months added multiple games, and not all of them hit those same high marks. But beyond Bloodborne and Final Fantasy 7 Remake, fans were treated to games like Ratchet and Clank, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, The Witness, Shadow of the Colossus, Remnant, Ghostrunner, and more. It set a high precedent for the month over these five years, one worth noting that March 2023 dropped the ball on.

The PS Plus free games for March 2023 were Battlefield 2042, Code Vein, and Minecraft Dungeons. Battlefield 2042 would be a better game than it was at launch, but it still had a long way to go. Code Vein is solid, but not in the best game of the year territory. The same could be said for Minecraft Dungeons. This puts March 2024 at a crossroads: does it signal the end of March’s run as the best month for PS Plus, or does it ensure that March 2023 remains an exception to the rule?

PS Plus Essential Tier January 2024

Ultimately, it’s impossible to predict what Sony will add in March 2024, but there’s reason to believe it could be a big month. February 28 would kick that off with the PS Plus Essential Tier announcement, and if those titles hit the same high marks, it would go a long way in ensuring the month is memorable. While PS Plus Extra games are typically a bit better than the Essential Tier, that may not be the case here.

And if it were, that would likely cement PS Plus’ games for March 2024 as the best month of the year, despite whatever comes later.
