The PlayStation Plus free games for March have been unveiled, according to Sony.
They are Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee — New ‘n’ Tasty! (PS4), Valiant Hearts: The Great War (PS4), Papo & Yo (PS3), Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments (PS3), OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood (PS Vita | PS4), and CounterSpy (PS Vita | PS4 | PS3).
According to Sony’s Sid Shuman, “Starting things off on PS4 is Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee — New ‘n’ Tasty! This side-scrolling adventure reboots the PlayStation classic with new visuals, new sound, enhanced controls, and even more dark humor than before. Also coming to the PS4 lineup is Valiant Hearts: The Great War. This colorful puzzle game carries with it a heavy subject matter, as it follows four intersecting lives (and a loyal canine companion) during the first World War.
“On PS3, gamers with PS Plus can download the critically-acclaimed Papo & Yo, alongside the wit-inducing Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments. And on PS Vita, watch out for OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood and CounterSpy.”
The games are currently available for users as of March 3.
The majority of this month’s games are a bit older than the usual PS Plus fare.
Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee is described as: “It’s the return of a PlayStation classic! Join Abe in this rebooted platformer that has enhanced visuals, sound, and controls. Help him free his people from a dastardly meat processing facility, and see why gamers fell in love with good ol’ Abe in the first place!”
Valiant Hearts: The Great War is “the story of intersecting lives that suffer under the impossible duress of the first World War. Inspired by actual WWI tokens from the friends and family of the development team, this game may be colorful, but tells a dark and devastating story. Bring a box of tissues!”
And Papo & Yo is “the story of a young boy, Quico, and his best friend, Monster. Monster is a huge beast with razor-sharp teeth, but that doesn’t scare Quico away from playing with him. Build your friendship with Monster by solving puzzles together and adventuring through a magical, surrealist world.”
