Sony has just revealed the PlayStation Plus free-to-play lineup for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 with a huge surprise. PS4 players will receive Final Fantasy VII Remake at no extra cost without the ability to free-upgrade the game on PlayStation 5.
Final Fantasy VII Remake | PS4
Yesterday, PlayStation’s State of Play unveiled Square Enix’s latest DLC for the critically acclaimed RPG, Intergrade adds Yuffie and a new story later this year. Apparently, to boost sales and incentivize players to keep hyped for the game, Final Fantasy VII Remake is free for all subscribers on PlayStation 4. Players who own the physical version of the game can upgrade the game to the PS5 version when available.
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.
Square Enix’s modern reimagining of its iconic RPG boasts unforgettable characters, a mind-blowing story, and epic battles. Return to the city of Midgar as Cloud Strife, 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.
Remnant: From the Ashes | PS4
In this third-person survival action shooter, players take the role of one of the the last remnants of humanity attempting to retake a world overrun by monstrous, interdimensional invaders. The game features 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 the enemy and battling epic bosses.
Maquette | PS5
Making its PlayStation 5 debut as part of next month’s PlayStation Plus lineup, 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.
Farpoint | PS VR
Master an arsenal of weapons to keep yourself alive on a hostile alien world in this free-roaming, first-person PS VR shooter. Optimized for the PlayStation VR Aim controller and fully playable with a DualShock wireless controller, strikeout towards your crashed space station solo or with a friend in an online co-op. Trade alien threats for testing each other’s skills in a variety of Versus game modes.
Is important to mention that PlayStation Subscribers only have a few days left to download February’s lineup that includes Control: Ultimate Edition and Concrete Genie. Both games are claimable via the PlayStation Store from your PS4 or PS5 console, mobile app, or through the website storefront. Both games will be leaving the service on March 1, 2021.
