PlayStation Plus games for March 2023 headlined by Battlefield 2042

PlayStation Plus games for March 2023 have been officially confirmed as Battlefield 2042, Minecraft Dungeons and Code Vein, and will be available to all subscribers from March 7th to April 3rd.

PlayStation shared the news during its latest State of Play, where it also shared that Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Tchia, Ghostwire: Tokyo, Immortals Fenyx Rising, and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction will be joining the PlayStation Plus catalog of games, which is available for Extra and Premium members.

Battlefield 2042 is the latest entry in the long-running first-person shooter franchise, and while it doesn’t feature a single-player campaign, it does feature Portal mode. For those unfamiliar, this new mode lets you mix and match maps, weapons, classes and gear from Battlefield 1942, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 2042 to make the experience you have always wanted to play.

In our Battlefield 2042 review, we said that its “high point is its powerful Portal mode, which lets you relive the series’ past glories and tweak things to your liking. Things in an interesting, high-stakes way.”

Minecraft Dungeons is a twist on Mojang’s game and seeks to combine the best parts of dungeon crawlers like Diablo with all the charm and aesthetics of Minecraft. It was first released in 2020 and we’ve enjoyed our time with it, even if it’s not revolutionary.

In our Minecraft Dungeons review, we said “It’s a fun and beautiful dungeon crawler with a simple but tried and true set of systems. However, it’s extremely safe, bringing nothing mining or crafting to the genre to go along with Minecraft’s signature look and feel. Still, it’s so charming and so much fun that it’s hard to fault it for going the safe route.

Ultimately, Code Vein is a “Soulslike anime” that aims to give players a new way to experience the brutal yet rewarding challenge of games like Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and more. It also differentiates itself from being a simple clone by including a unique post-apocalyptic setting, a flexible class system, and an AI partner.

In our Code Vein review, we said it “takes some interesting chances with Soulslike mechanics and finds mixed results, but there’s something worth sinking your teeth into here”

As for Games Catalog games, there are some heavy hitters, but Tchia is the only release. This beautiful tropical open world adventure game is heavily inspired by New Caledonia and also lets you jump on animals and most objects you come across. Tchia will be released on March 21st.

While you wait for these games to arrive, check out our full recap of the latest State of Play, and don’t forget to download February’s PlayStation Plus games – OlliOlli World, Mafia: Definitive Edition, Evil Dead: The Game, and Destiny 2: Beyond Light .
