Sony has gone ahead and announced which games are coming to PS Plus Essential and Extra in March 2023. Usually, we get confirmation a bit later, but we suppose the latest State of Play broadcast has presented the perfect opportunity.
Here are the PS Plus Essential games (available from the 7th March):
- Battlefield 2042 (PS5)
- Minecraft: Dungeons (PS4)
- Code Vein (PS4)
In truth, it's a bit of a questionable Essential lineup. Battlefield 2042 is obviously desperate for some reinforcements following an incredibly rough launch in 2021 and a slew of ongoing problems post-release — but subscribers might breathe some life into it.
Meanwhile, Minecraft: Dungeons is a spinoff that was met with some lukewarm reviews from both critics and players, and the same can be said of Code Vein — an anime-styled Soulslike from 2019.
Thankfully, we think things get much better with the PS Plus Extra titles. We've listed them below, but we assume more games will be announced closer to the drop in the middle of next month.
- Tchia (PS5, PS4)
- Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection (PS5)
- Immortals Fenyx Rising (PS5, PS4)
- Rainbow Six Extraction (PS5, PS4)
- Ghostwire: Tokyo (PS5)
Tchia is a brand new and anticipated indie title that focuses on exploration. Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is an obvious win, Immortals Fenyx Rising is a fun open worlder, and Ghostwire: Tokyo is well worth a look thanks to its unique action. Rainbow Six Extraction has struggled since its launch just last year, but it can still be entertaining with a few friends.
