Final Fantasy VII Remake is indeed a part of the PlayStation Plus lineup for March, but sadly you will not be able to upgrade it to PlayStation 5 version once the enhanced version is out.
Sony have (finally) revealed the PlayStation Plus games for March 2021, and here's your lineup:
- Final Fantasy VII Remake | PS4
- Remnant: From the Ashes | PS4
- Maquette | PS5
- Farpoint | PS VR
As you can see, the rumours have proven to be true and the Final Fantasy VII Remake will indeed be part of the PS Plus games next month. What is disappointing, at least for PS5 owners, is the fact that the PS Plus version of the FF7R will not be eligible for the PS5 upgrade when the next-gen version comes out.
All owners of the FF7R PS4 version, both digital and physical copies, will be able to upgrade to the PS5 version for free.
Everything is known about Final Fantasy VII Remake, but here is a summary of what you get:
"Return to the city of Midgar as Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the resistance group Avalanche. Initially executing daring raids against Shinra to fight back against its planet-threatening machinations, Cloud and his comrades are unaware of the epic consequences that await them.
The story of this first, standalone game in the Final Fantasy VII Remake project covers up to the party’s escape from Midgar, and goes deeper into the events occurring in Midgar than the classic original."
Remnant: From the Ashes is the second PS4 game in the lineup for March, and many describe it as "Dark Souls with guns."
"In this third-person survival action shooter, play as one of the last remnants of humanity attempting to retake a world overrun by monstrous, interdimensional invaders. Venture into dynamically-generated worlds alone or with up to two other survivors*, scavenging for supplies and modding your equipment to strengthen your chances of survival when tackling over 100 deadly varieties of enemy and battling epic bosses."
PS5 owners get an interesting adventure called Maquette, which sadly went under our radar, but here’s the chance for all of us to give it a go.
"Maquette sets you in the center of a world the rules of which are very different from our own. Solutions to puzzles require you to twist the world recursively – manipulating the landscape of a diorama will see those changes mirrored in the life-sized version that surrounds you."
"Optimised for the PlayStation VR Aim controller and fully playable with a DualShock wireless controller, strike out towards your crashed space station solo or with a friend in online co-op. Trade alien threats for testing each other’s skills in a variety of Versus game modes."
