Playstation blog updated today bringing the PS Plus free game roster for the month of March. The poster child will definitely be Bloodborne as the spiritual successor to the Souls series has enjoyed great fame since its release.

If by some chance you didn't acquire the rage inducing but highly rewarding Bloodborne yet, this will be your month. In the spirit of Souls series, Bloodborne will test your gamepad dexterity to its limits, but finally killing a boss that has been ruining your life for the last 26 attempts feels extremely satisfying.

The game has also had a change of scenery, compared to the Souls series. It is set in the city of Yharnam and largely inspired by the Victorian era, as opposed to the medieval castles and villages of its Souls brethren. The game is worth checking out even if you're a casual player as it will progressively hone your skills, if nothing else.

Next up is Rodents and Robots, officially known as Ratchet & Clank. The game comes from a classic series, and has lived up to its name. It received a worldwide critical acclaim, as well as a positive reception from the players.  As oposed to Bloodborne, the game's funky style and a not-to-serious approach are great for casual gaming, when you're not in the mood for intense encounters that require 110% of your focus.

The game lineup for March will also include Legend of Kay (PS3), Mighty No. 9, (PS3 - Cross Buy with PS4), Claire: Extended Cut (PS Vita - Cross Buy with PS4) and Bombing Busters (PS Vita Cross Buy with PS4) . 

PS Plus blog post also noted there is a service update.

Yup, no more PS3 or PS Vita games will be coming to PS Plus as Sony want to focus more on PlayStation 4 games in the future. However, the PS3 and PS Vita games you have already downloaded will remain in your library. Detailed info can be found on the PlayStation blog.
