It’s that lovely time of the month again where Sony reveals what free games PlayStation Plus subscribers can expect. And continuing the trend of 2020, we’re getting a classic, must-play experience.
Sony revealed the titles earlier today via the PlayStation Blog. Members will be able to download the 2018 HD remake of Shadow of the Colossus as well as 2017’s Sonic Forces. The titles will be available to download from March 3rd to April 6th.
Shadow of the Colossus originally released in 2005 for the PlayStation 2. It follows a young man who, in order to save a loved one, is tasked with defeating 16 Colossi. It received high acclaim thanks to its art direction and massive boss battles. The PS3 saw a re-release when the game was packaged with Ico, the developer’s previous release. Bluepoint Games oversaw the development of the 2018 HD remake, which is the version subscribers will have access to.
Sonic Forces is the latest entry in the blue hedgehog’s main series. It sees Sonic’s nemesis Dr. Eggman team up with a mysterious villain known as Infinite to take over most of the world. It features both classic and modern Sonic gameplay and lets players customize their own character. This announcement comes hot on the trail of the release of his feature film adaptation, which has done surprisingly well at the box office.
PlayStation Plus members will also be able to participate in a trial for Predator: Hunting Grounds this month. The asymmetrical multiplayer title has you play as either a member of a fireteam or the Predator hunting them. The trial runs from March 27th-29th. Cross-play with PC players will also be available.
And if you haven’t downloaded the PlayStation Plus titles for last month, there’s still time. BioShock: The Collection, The Sims 4, and the PS VR game Firewall Zero Hour will still be downloadable until March 2nd.
