PlayStation Plus March Content Confirmed

Zombies, tombs, brothers and monsters.

The rumours and leaks were right. The EU PS Blog has just posted up confirmation of what’s coming to PlayStation Plus in March and it matches up with the bits and pieces that we’d been hearing about for a couple of weeks. That’s no bad thing, of course.

The PlayStation 4 loses Outlast (or Sound Shapes) but gains Housemarque’s top-down zombie shooter, Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition. That’s the full game and the DLC that we’ve seen before on PS3 and it could make for an excellent subject in TSA’s Plus Points Challenge next month…

PlayStation 3 is getting Tomb Raider and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons which are both very well loved games, for very different reasons. Tomb Raider is an excellent, big budget action adventure and Brothers is a clever indie puzzler. Both are very much worth your time, if you’ve yet to enjoy them.

The Vita isn’t left out either, it’ll get Pixeljunk Monsters Ultimate HD, which is a brilliant tower defence game that was born on the PSP but the visual upgrade is luscious and the gameplay is extremely compelling. The Vita also gets Smart As… which is a kind of quiz/brain training game that I wasn’t very keen on… Still, for the grand old price of free, you mustn’t grumble!

Here’s the full list of comings and goings:

Leaving PS Plus on 5th March:

  • Outlast/Sound Shapes
  • Metro Last Light
  • Guacamelee! (Cross Buy)
  • Dynasty Warriors Next
  • ModNation Racers Road Trip

Entering PS Plus on 5th March:

  • Dead Nation Apocalypse Edition
  • Tomb Raider
  • Brothers A Tale of Two Sons
  • Pixeljunk Monsters Ultimate HD
  • Smart As

    I am looking forward to play Pixeljunk Monsters and Dead Nation. I didn’t like the demo of Brothers but I will have another go. (I have Tom Raider and not interested in Smart as.)

    Good times. I’d held off buying Tomb Raider, hoping that it would come to PS+. I wonder when the PS4 will start to get some “proper” games?

    Looking forward to the Vita & PS4 offerings. Not sure it’s enough to get me off KZ multiplayer yet but they’ll keep for a rainy day. To add to the previous comments, i purchased my Vita alongside the ps4 on day one. It was purchased for remote play but gets used for indie offerings 95% of the time and i’m loving it. Feelings would probably be different if i’d dropped >£200 after the promise of AAA titles!

    Just hoping the TSA points challenge will be dead nation and allow a co op score. Always better playing with my girlfriend. :-)

      It’s always better playing with a girl than playing with yourself… ;-)

      Purely in a gaming sense you understand…!

    Will certainly be adding tomb raider to my backlog. Maybe brothers too, I wouldn’t pay for such a short title but since its free.

    I look forward to Read nation too. I’ll also give Pixeljunk monsters for a try. A friend brought on my account on Ps3 but never really liked it. So I’ll give it another try.

    Even though it’s early days, giving us a PS3 game for the PS4 just goes to show the lack of games at the moment.

    Looking forward to Tomb Raider, will be added to my backlog. Dead Nation is excellent, but I’ve completed that a while ago, so I’ll maybe just drop by for a comparison.
    I’ll definitely renew my Plus in March, I’m perfectly happy with it. I don’t expect them to give full retail games away for free, and the PS3 offering is amazing.
    Love my Vita, but the single account policy is a shame, as I can’t play my Plus games on my main account.

    Just Dead Nation for me… A little disappointed this month as I found Dead Nation very tough going (more fun in co-op maybe?) and already own both that and Tomb Raider. Ah well, it’s something new to play I guess.
