There's no point in beating around the bush. The PlayStation Plus lineup for March includes Bloodborne, and that alone is worth getting very, very excited for.
The March Plus lineup is set to go live next Tuesday, March 6, with two games apiece for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. There will be some additional benefits for Plus subscribers, too, and Sony has made an announcement concerning an alteration to the service starting next year. But first, those sweet, sweet games.
No disrespect to the other games hitting Plus in March, but Bloodborne is the kind of game that sucks up all of the attention. It's vast, beautiful, challenging and full of wonderful secrets and little touches that will keep you coming back for more. If you haven't played this FromSoftware masterpiece yet, you're officially out of excuses. Given Bloodborne's appearance on Plus, we can't help but wonder if some fresh details on whatever FromSoftware was teasing at the PlayStation Experience are also on the way.
The second PS4 Plus game for March is the rebooted Ratchet & Clank which, combined with Bloodborne, makes this one of the best months for the promotion on Sony's latest console.
Over to the PlayStation 3 and the March offerings include the action/adventure game Legend of Kay, which is actually a spruced up remaster from the PlayStation 2 era. The second PS3 game is Mighty No. 9, the spiritual successor to Mega Man that, while a bit disappointing, offers some pretty fun platforming and shooting; especially at the cost of zero dollars.
On the Vita, March's games include the 2D horror game, Claire: Extended Cut, and Bombing Busters, a game that's reminiscent of Bomberman but more focused on solving puzzles by creating paths with powerful explosions. It's worth noting that both of these games, as well as Mighty No. 9, are cross-play titles for the PS4.
Outside of that, as well as the regular crop of Plus-based sales we expect to see popping up over the month, Dungeon Defenders II will receive a special PS Plus Pack between March 13 and April 10. It includes some costumes, a bunch of in-game gold, loot boxes and a Ninja Gato pet.
Finally, Sony has announced that, starting next year, Plus will no longer feature PlayStation 3 and Vita support in the Instant Game Collection library. Those games will still be a part of each monthly lineup over the next 12 months, with March 8, 2019 being the first month where they are no longer included. If that's a deal-breaker for your wallet, be sure to plan your subscription accordingly.
