The free PS Plus games lineup for March 2018 includes the fantastic Bloodborne and Ratchet & Clank
PS Plus has been lacking in recent months, with last month’s lineup of Knack taking the biscuit. Thankfully, as if to atone for its sins, Sony has rolled out an incredible lineup for PlayStation Plus in March 2018.
On PS4, PS Plus subscribers can download both Bloodborne and the remastered version of PS2 classic Ratchet & Clank. Both titles are easily among the absolute best games you can get on PS4, so it’s fantastic to see them available to everyone with PS Plus.
As with every month on PS Plus, you’ll also get two PS3 games and two PS Vita games to enjoy. This time around its Legend of Kay Anniversary and Mighty No. 9 on PS3, with Claire: Extended Cut and Bombing Busters joining on PS Vita.

The ambitious Mega Man-like shooter Mighty No. 9 is also compatible with PS4, alongside Claire: Extended Cut and Bombing Busters so you’re actually getting five PS4 games for free with March’s PS Plus.
This time around you won’t be getting a free PlayStation VR or PlayLink game to enjoy, though.
All six games are available now and February’s lineup of Knack and Rime have melted away forever.
It’s also worth noting that Sony will discontinue PS3 and PS Vita games as part of PS Plus from the 8 March 2019. This means there’s one more year of PS3 and PS Vita games to look forward to, but after that, nada. Nothing else will change, but it does mean we’ll only be seeing two games each month as part of PS Plus.
Sony’s official line on the matter is that “the monthly games will remain at two PS4 games per month. We will continue to enhance the benefits members receive through PS Plus, including free add-on packs for free-to-play games and exclusive PS Store discounts.”
While I hope that stance may change come 2019, it could well be a hint towards the arrival of the PS5. Although, it’s probably not.
