Playstation Now unveils March lineup of games with Control, Shadow of the Tomb Raider & Wolfenstein 2 headlining.
It’s crazy to think that it’s already March. However the good news is for PlayStation Plus members, it also means a new batch of PS4 games is arriving on the streaming service alongside some new free games as well. Sony has added various AAA titles to PS Now this March like Control and Shadow of the Tomb Raider which will be timed additions, but is permanently adding Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Toukiden 2. Meanwhile, the new free PS4 games members can download this month are Shadow of the Colossus and Sonic Forces.
For those unfamiliar, Shadow of the Colossus is described as “a breathtaking journey through ancient lands to seek out gigantic beasts. Armed with only a sword and a bow, [players] explore the spacious lands and unearth each Colossus, presenting a unique challenge to test [their] wits, determination, and skill.” The PS4 version is a complete remake of the 2005 PlayStation 2 game and was first released in February 2018.
The second free game for March is Sonic Forces. Featuring both classic side-scrolling and modern 3D gameplay, the 2017 game starring everyone’s favorite blue hedgehog takes place in a time where Doctor Eggman and his minions have managed to conquer the world. With help from a powerful and mysterious new villain named Infinite. Now, [players] must assist Sonic and build an army to reclaim the world as they fight against chaos and destruction.” Both games are free to download and play for PlayStation Plus subscribers. PS Plus membership costs AU$79.95 per year.
