PlayStation Plus games for March: Final Fantasy VII Remake, Maquette, Remnant: From the Ashes and Farpoint

Critically-acclaimed RPG action, intriguing puzzles, tense sci-fi survival and PS VR combat await on March 2.

Return to one of PlayStation’s most iconic settings reimagined for PS4 and experience a truly unique puzzle experience for PS5 as Final Fantasy VII Remake and Maquette join PlayStation Plus next month. Also launching alongside these titles on Tuesday, March 2 is the intense, sci-fi survival action of Remnant: From the Ashes and PS VR shooter Farpoint.  

Let’s take a closer look at the games.

Final Fantasy VII Remake | PS4

PlayStation Plus games for March: Final Fantasy VII Remake, Maquette, Remnant: From the Ashes and Farpoint

Square Enix’s modern reimagining of its iconic RPG boasts unforgettable characters, a mind-blowing story and epic battles. Return to the city of Midgar as Cloud Strife, former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the resistance group Avalanche. Initially executing daring raids against Shinra to fight back against its planet-threatening machinations, Cloud and his comrades are unaware of the epic consequences that await them.

The story of this first, standalone game in the Final Fantasy VII Remake project covers up to the party’s escape from Midgar, and goes deeper into the events occurring in Midgar than the classic original.

Please note the PS4 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake available to PlayStation Plus members is not eligible for the PS5 digital version upgrade.

Remnant: From the Ashes | PS4

In this third-person survival action shooter, play as one of the last remnants of humanity attempting to retake a world overrun by monstrous, interdimensional invaders.

Maquette** | PS5

PlayStation Plus games for March: Final Fantasy VII Remake, Maquette, Remnant: From the Ashes and Farpoint

All that is tiny is simultaneously huge in this intriguing first-person puzzler designed around a Escher-esque recursive simulation. Making its PlayStation 5 debut as part of next month’s PlayStation Plus lineup, Maquette sets you in the center of a world the rules of which are very different from our own. Solutions to puzzles require you to twist the world recursively – manipulating the landscape of a diorama will see those changes mirrored in the life-sized version that surrounds you. If you get perplexed by a puzzle, you can call up PS5’s Game Help*** for helpful hints to solve Maquette’s tougher conundrums.

Farpoint | PS VR****

  • I find it somewhat understandable but mostly cheap and bothersome that you can’t upgrade the PS plus Final Fantasy 7 Remake to the PS5 version in June. Personally I was happy that I’ll be able to conveniently play the game without having to switch the disc. Now however I’m worried that there might be trouble upgrading my disc version to PS5 if I’ve also added the PS plus downloadable version to my account. I hope the game recognizes all this correctly and hassle free.

    It’s still kind of a hassle that I’ll have insert my FF7R disc if I want to play the upgraded PS5 version in juni. It’s just so Square Enix, trying to get extra money out of you. Couldn’t they just be happy with the money they’d make from all the PS plus players wanting to buy the Intergrade expansion. I doubt they’ll get much extra money from ps plus subscribers wanting to buy the whole PS5 version now all of a sudden. Instead they’ll just be missing out of more people paying for Intergrade. At least that’s what I think. And that’s another thing, Intergrade only being available on PS5… I’m just gonna stop now, this initially amazing sounding PS plus announcement is starting to get me depressed.

  • Awesome lineup! FYI the dates in the image has 02/03/21 – 05/04/21

  • This final fantasy announcement is… Confusing, and off-putting. If square are going to be that stingy then I wish you would just replace that with another indie

  • Well, I guess I won’t be redeeming FF7R since I want the upgrade, what a disappointment.

  • I own and have platted both FFVII and Remnant, both great games, and Maquette looks worth a shot, but very good month. Can understand why FFVII can’t upgrade, it’s an ongoing game and all subsequent dlc’s and entries will produce ‘part 1’ sales, it would be a bit much for Square to dismiss that, albeit I do sympathize with those that play the Plus version and want to carry on with the content, they’ll have to overpay (even with sales) to get the upgrade/dlc. Bit of a catch 22 with this one, just need to take it on the chin.

    Remnant is a lot of fun, highly recommend it.

  • Wow…Maquette…gee thanks. PS4 gets FFVII Remake and PS5 gets…that……k…

  • Please note the PS4 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake available to PlayStation Plus members is not eligible for the PS5 digital version upgrade.

    Don’t be a jerk Sony!

    • Not Sony but squares doing

    • That has nothing to do with Sony. They didn’t make the game. Blame Square Enix for likely telling them that there weren’t going to allow their free game to get an upgrade

    • Like others said, its very likely Square since it is their game. And even then, how can they be jerks? Aren’t they allowed to make SOME money?
      It could be so much worse. The game could be a horrendous microtransactions filled CRAPFEST like Avengers, that they also won’t give away for free too on PS5. But FFVII Remake is better then that.

    • And if you download the PS+ version, you will also be forced to pay way more for the PS5 version if you want the upgrade, as you cannot re-buy the cheaper PS4 version that gets the free upgrade, that is currently massively discounted.

  • Final Fantasy 7 Remake features a character with an oversized sword. That means I already hate the game. Wish I had a PS5, that puzzle game is the only one I’d like to play out of these.

  • Please patch in 1440p output with a firmware update for the PS5. For those that don’t know, plugging in a 1440p monitor into a PS5 will not be recognized as such, and will only output to 1080p. Due to the number of pixels on a 1440p display, when 1080p output is upscaled to 1440p it looks quite blurry. Often times I am hearing the excuse that Sony is marketing for gamers playing on TV, but if you already have NATIVE mouse and keyboard support for games that support it along with games such as Demon Souls, Apex Legends, etc. rendering internally at 1440p without issue then you should absolutely without question offer the ability to output at 1440p as well. Last generation Xbox One offered this and Xbox Series X/S have offered this since day one.

    • Well that’s your fault, why would you buy a 1440 monitor? Is it one of those completely overhyped high refresh things that don’t really offer a difference in image quality, is that it? Hahaha.

    • Because 1440p 144hz has been the standard for PC gaming for a few years now? What exactly is your comment trying attempting to add?

    • Standard? Hah, my point is you believe in nonsense, that’s what.Let me guess, you bought a Acer or Asus or some other average quality monitor too didn’t you, instead of one from a quality manufacturer. Yeah you enjoy that pitiful image quality.

    • What are you honestly even talking about? What nonsense am I believing in? 1440p IPS panels look great. You come off as someone trying to sound smart but you’re just an arrogant twat.

    • SidNightwalker sounds like he’s some 11 year old who has no clue what they’re talking about… Sony could easily patch in a 1440p output, but they’re painfully lazy and stubborn

  • Once again the PS5 game is something nobody has ever heard of or cares about. Nothing that makes me happy to have a PS5.

    PS4 games are classics or crowd favorites, while PS5 games seem more like bargain indie games.

    • Contrast and most of the 1st year of PS4’s Plus games were all unknown titles too. Is it so hard to remember history from only a few years ago. Why does everything have to be brand new and impossible to digest.

      What next? You are going to moan about scalping like you just discovered what that is too?

  • One great game and some crap. Too bad it’s an already obsolete version of the game and absolutely nobody should play it until June, maybe you’ll actually be able to get a PS5 by then eh? Me, I’m just hoping it comes to PC. It probably will.

    There have been worse months. Which is sad to say.

  • Oh and Square is disgusting, I can’t believe I let them get me on buying the remake at full price. Well, fool me once.

    • Its easy to not buy something when you believe it to be trash. I haven’t bought an EA game the past gen. And they make it so easy. Never touched Anthem, Fallout 76, Avengers, how else are you going to send a message.

      It was officially announced the end of 2015 that FFVII would be released in parts. It was clearly detailed at E3 2019 what this part would entail. I can’t believe you let them on buying the remake either.

  • Well this kinda sucks because I just bought ff7 remake and then they give it away for free is there anyway they could compensate for the money I lost

  • Well this kinda sucks because I just bought it like a week ago but then all of a sudden they give it away for free is there anyway they could give some kind of compensation

  • So, I guess we’re getting demos/half games/whatever now…. (FFVII)

  • Glad to see FF7R because I almost bought this for $60 bucks.

  • I felt like they look thru my library and pick some of my purchased games to give away every month. But then my wife tells me that is what I get for buying almost everything on PSN. I guess she has a point, I cant get a game for free if I run out and buy it day 1…

  • I’ve been a psn subscriber for 5 years and this month is one of psn’s best and it also tops last month’s, which no one thought possible. With the value this month, It makes good sense to be a psn subscriber (imo, five bucks goes a long way). I’m excited to obtain the FF7 Remake for the ps4 regardless of no upgrade. There’s plenty of ps4 games without the ps5 upgrade. So it’s not that big of a deal to me. Saving Maquette for when I get my ps5, nonetheless I’m still going to have my 8tb seagate external hard drive with all my ps4 games on it. I’ve tried Remnant from the ashes and this is a nice psn selection as well. Farpoint VR adds to this great month.

    Keep up the great work Sony. I’m a highly satisfied psn subscriber.

  • Not upgradable for PS5 just means that this perks wasnt meant for the day-one folks. Is that really a problem? I’m more than happy to play FFVII for free now. Stop whining about PS+ games. We get the best offerings and still people complain.

    • Except now those who got the”free” PS+ version of FFVII will now have to pay even more for the PS5 version if they want to upgrade, as only the non-PS+ PS4 version gets the free upgrade.

  • This months a banger, PS plus has been hitting out the park recently.

  • Its a shame a lot of people are going to avoid this though because after all, “I’ll buy FFVII Remake whenever they decide to release the full game” right??? And the same people most CERTAINLY aren’t the one ones complaining you don’t get the PS5 version for free with this PS Plus version, again, RIGHT???????

    Get over it, just having a laugh at their expense. ^_^

  • Hi there, should have stuck with a similar theme of games for March and added some more multi-player games for us to play with our friends online. The games you giving is very good but it is not my preferred games to play.

  • Really happy with the line up this month. Bit cheeky that FFVII Remake wont upgrade though. Not even for a reduced price.
    Other than that excited to try Remnant and Maquette. Would love to play Farpoint if my stomach lets me.

  • And to imagine that some subscribers think they deserve the same treatment for a game they get for FREE as those who paid for the same price day one. I mean, have you ever heard of the word “shame”?

  • What a great line up. I will be renewing my subscription just for ff7. Still on PS4 Pro so i am winning. Still a great machine.

  • I hate PlayStation!!!! Bring back the Old Party System

  • Nice again, like always, thanks!

  • Wow so I basically paid 30 bucks for a game I should of just waited longer for then (FF7) it would be free well at least there remnant I did wanna check that out

  • What a great month!

  • I was just going to buy FFVII today and 1 year of ps plus but playstation just saved me $60

  • Honest question, I have the physical version of FF7R deluxe and will also be claiming the PS+ version. Would I be able to upgrade the digital version to the PS5 or do I need to insert the “play disk” and upgrade that version?

    Will there be two copies saved on my PS5 SSD (a PS+ version and a disk version)?

    Thank you and apologies if it was a bit confusing.

    • The deluxe version only includes some extra dlc items/summons. So you shouldn’t need the disc when the ps5 upgrade becomes unavailable.

  • rudyrockstar0806

    They should let us pre-download the games on announcement day and just lock access to them until they day they drop

  • I’ve never played final fantasy hope it’s cool

  • So no Final Fantasy VII remake for me? I’m not able to register no version of the game (and I’m trying the PS4 version that is said to be free. On the store only shows the other games but not Final Fantasy VII Remake

    • Even searching for the game on PSStore shows the full price. The other games were able to register though

  • This might be one of the best months on the books. FF7 remake AND remnant? I already own both but I’m surprised they didn’t spread out two fantastic picks

  • Would be grand if I could download / add them to my account. Others are also having the same issue.

  • Disappointing that Plus members don’t get the FF7 upgrade to PS5. Really makes you feel valued as a loyal customer whenever an arbitrary decision like this is made.

  • WARNING!!!
    To anyone who wants to download the Final Fantasy VII Remake on PS+ for “free”, if you do, you will not be able to buy it at the discounted rate and receive the free PS5 upgrade! You will be locked into the PS4 version or will have to pay much more for the PS5 version.

  • Hmm (don’t be jerk) I do not know what you mean, LTNC a lot has happened since I left this community, and a lot has happened the blog change so much, but what brought me back, as you well know, I’m against censorship in all platforms when it comes to entertainment media especially a certain unname censorship policy that brought to my intention regarding certain ecchi content that cant be you right. but now that isn’t enough you gunning for jp to censored violence content too.

    Before I want to discuss the main game header topic I want a straight answer, is it true and will it applies to naughty dog and rockstar games and other western DEVs.

    now back on topic the Ps plus for this month btw I’m still paying a subscription for plus, I’m not happy with the censored FF7 remodel not allowing Ps5 upgrade for people that bought one. for me I havnt bought a Ps5. and properly never will.

    there nothing wrong with criticism and I’m certainly didn’t become a jerk. or does that apply if we got the gall to criticise.

  • Don’t know how I would get through this cancer treatment w/o my ps4 pro and playstation plus account to help distract my brain!

  • “Please note the PS4 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake available to PlayStation Plus members is not eligible for the PS5 digital version upgrade.”

    So, will there be an option for PS Plus members to PAY for the PS5 upgrade? And I don’t mean full price.

  • Can’t claim ff7. The “edition” section of the game page is blank. Kind of frustrating that stuff like this is still happening almost six months after the site’s redesign.

  • please give us atleast 60fps unlock

  • I have had Playstation Plus almost constantly since it came out more than a decade ago. I am SICK of only getting games that I already played or games I don’t like! None of these games are good, AGAIN, except Maquette looked a bit interesting. Then I find it’s only for PS5?? It IS on the PS4, why can’t we PS4 users get it? I am not buying a PS5, the controllers are too large for my female hands and are ugly. Forcing us to use those XBox spy controllers is too much for me, it was a deal-breaker. How hard is it to give customers options that they want? The only reason I can see for it is because they want to spy on us with the microphone in the controller. If they allowed alternate controllers I would probably buy one.

    This is just NOT RIGHT. I don’t think there has been a decent game for me on PS Plus for at least 6 months. I’m considering letting it lapse for the first time in so long… I don’t know what Sony has done, but everything has changed and it’s not for the better. I used to be a huge fan girl… :(

  • I’ve question about this.
    “ Please note the PS4 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake available to PlayStation Plus members is not eligible for the PS5 digital version upgrade.”
    If you upgrade psplus version to the “digital deluxe upgrade” will it be Eligible for ps5 upgrade.

  • Well it’s all good and fine, but I am completely bumbed out, because I had an invite to purchase a ps5 through psn store que and I had my order up and ready to buy it , I went to checkout and
    ……………my card got denied and it was my banks fault! They thought it was suspicious activity! So I missed my ps5 and controller and adapter for my v.r setup!!!!! May I ever get a second chance?

  • Seems like a logic answer of yes but want to confirm. If you play the ff7 remake from PS+ can your save data migrate into your pre-order for the ps5 version?

  • Keep getting an Error code for PS4 that won’t allow me to add the Final Fantasy game to my Library for PS Plus

  • Playing FF7 Remake have been one of the best nostalgic trips that I’ve been on with my Playstation in years. From the music to the artwork, to even the newly update fighting mechanics, this is a must buy in every sense of the word. Can’t wait for the PS5 update, can’t wait for episode 2, can’t wait for how Ruby/Emerald/Knights of the Round will be depicted on the PS5.
