Seminal shooter meets incredible indie puzzler in March’s PS Plus line-up
Two brand new titles join the PlayStation Plus line-up on 5th March offering dramatically different gameplay experiences but sharing one key trait: widespread critical acclaim.
Let’s find out more:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered
Activision’s colossal Call of Duty series is well and truly part of the fabric of modern gaming, but it was only in 2007 that developer Infinity Ward took the console world by storm with its contemporary spin on the popular WW2 shooter series it helped create.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was a phenomenal success, winning players’ hearts with a memorable campaign and sleek online multiplayer. 2016’s Modern Warfare Remastered added a fresh lick of paint for a new generation of gamers, while respectfully retaining its snappy gunplay and brilliant level design.
Download it with PS Plus this month to relive a true FPS classic (in glorious 4K with PS4 Pro).
Having had massive success with charming puzzle-platformer Braid back in 2008, creator Jonathan Blow promptly returned to the drawing board and spent the next eight years working on an ambitious follow-up.
The result was 2016’s The Witness – an enigmatic first-person puzzler set on a seemingly-deserted tropical island, dotted from one end to the other with a vast network of interconnected puzzles.
Boasting spellbinding narrative twists, and an unbeatable sense of satisfaction in conquering each puzzle, The Witness is a benchmark in design and environmental storytelling. Download on PS Plus this month for a slow-burning test of the old grey matter.
Both titles will be available to download from PlayStation Store on 5th March.
In the meantime, you’ve still got time to download February’s PlayStation Plus titles.
Hitman‘s heady cocktail of sandbox assassinations should keep you busy trying to perfect the flawless hit, while mastering For Honor‘s ‘Art of Battle’ for truly devastating take-downs will take time and patience.
If you’ve not tried them, then now’s your chance – they’ll be available until 4th March.
PS3 and PS Vita games
As a reminder, PS3 and PS Vita games will no longer be part of the monthly games line-up for PS Plus. If you haven’t added the following PS3 and PS Vita titles from the February games line-up to your library yet, they will remain available until 8th March 2019:
- Divekick – PS3 (Cross Buy with PS Vita)
- Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots – PS3
- Gunhouse – PS Vita
- Rogue Aces – PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
Any PS3 and PS Vita games you’ve already downloaded, or will download, prior to 8th March 2019 won’t be affected by this change. Those games will still be part of your PS Plus games library as long as you remain a member. Your game saves and other benefits of PS Plus will also remain the same.
We thank you for your support.
