ps plus symbol and logoPlayStation

Sony has officially confirmed the PlayStation Plus free games in March 2023, including a diverse selection of different genres, along with PlayStation Extra and Premium titles.

Every month, Sony offers free PS Plus games as a perk to new and existing subscribers. These free games often delight some and disappoint others, depending on your preferences. However, the free games eventually offer something for everyone to get excited about.

To take advantage of the free PlayStation Plus games each month, you’ll need to have an active subscription to the service with Essentials being the most basic package.

Unfortunately, last month’s announcement came with the news that on May 9, 2023, subscribers will no longer have access to PS5’s PS Plus Collection which offered up great PS4 titles like God of War, Persona 5, and The Last of Us. As such, players should make sure to add these games to their library before May 2023 rolls around. That aside, here are the games available for the PS Plus Essential tier in February 2023.

Additionally, multiplayer fans can also sink their teeth into the dungeon crawler Minecraft Dungeons through either local or online co-op modes. Finally, fans of Souls-like games can download Code Vein, an action role-playing game inspired by Dark Souls developed by Bandai Namco Entertainment.
