Update: Sony has now confirmed the PS Plus PS5, PS4 games for the month of March 2021, and they are indeed Maquette, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Farpoint, and Remnant: From the Ashes. The PlayStation Blog also confirms you cannot use this PS Plus version of Final Fantasy VII Remake to upgrade to PS5 title Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade.
Please note the PS4 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake available to PlayStation Plus members is not eligible for the PS5 digital version upgrade.
We're currently working on a review for Maquette, so keep your eyes open for that next week. In the meantime, you can read our 8/10 verdict for Final Fantasy VII Remake:
Measured against the immense expectations that surround it, Final Fantasy VII Remake is a great game that will inevitably disappoint some fans. That said, playing through the Midgar storyline 23 years later is giddily surreal, and the game does a fantastic job of expanding the existing plot, while also pushing a surprising amount of fresh ideas. Some frustratingly poor level design hampers the fun at times, and visually the game is all over the place, but when it's at its best, Remake is brilliant, and it's elevated to even greater heights by an excellent combat system.
We were also fairly fond of Farpoint in our 7/10 review, despite its simplistic encounters:
Farpoint leans on novelty to make up for its shortcomings elsewhere, but wielding the PlayStation VR Aim Controller is such a unique experience that it papers over some dated game design. The story is cheesy but has some nice moments, and the action really ramps up towards the tail of the campaign. With an arcade mode and co-op included, Impulse Gear’s inaugural outing is a fulfilling offering, and while there are obvious improvements that could be made, there’s enough here to prove that blockbuster first-person shooters could find a home on PlayStation VR yet.
Don't forget that Destruction AllStars will also stick around for another month, so get redeeming that one. All four games will be available to download for anyone with an active PS Plus subscription starting 2nd March 2021. Alternatively, you can find a list of All Free PS Plus Games in 2021 and All PS Plus Collection Games on PS5 through the links. Are you happy with March 2021's line-up?

Original story: We were made to wait for them, but the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 titles coming to PlayStation Plus free of charge for the month of March 2021 have now actually leaked via Facebook. The link in question has been very quickly brought down. This time around, PS5 owners can look forward to playing Maquette, while PS4 players have Final Fantasy VII Remake, Farpoint, and Remnant: From the Ashes.
The catch is that this PS Plus version of Final Fantasy VII Remake will not grant you access to the PS5 version of the game. Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade must still be bought separately for $70. There will be no option for a free PS5 upgrade.
