Month after month, PS Plus subscribers are curious about what will come to the service next. This leads to a lot of speculation and PS Plus wish lists, and the best among these are often rooted in patterns. It’s not an exact science, but there are occasionally patterns repeated among the PS Plus free games selection that fans have identified time and again.
Last month, there was a lot of speculation that PS Plus free games for March 2022 would be the best selection in recent months, compared to some of the best of recent years. It makes perfect sense as a pattern, but PS Plus patterns come to an end. Thus, many may have worried about the March 2022 selection, but while each month is always a subjective case, it seems PS Plus’ March pattern continues on.
PS Plus Free Games for March 2022 – The Big March Pattern Explained
Last month, many PS Plus subscribers were discussing how March tends to have some of the best games of the year, if not the absolute best. This is a justifiable thought and obviously built a ton of hype for March 2022 games. This pattern goes back through 2018, meaning it can certainly be considered a pattern. For March 2018, 6 games dropped for the service, but it wasn’t a PS Plus quantity over quality situation. Among these games, Bloodborne and Ratchet and Clank stand out, but the whole month is top-notch.
For March 2019, PS Plus subscribers got Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and The Witness. Again, both are solid games, but Modern Warfare Remastered was likely the runaway. It released here at the height of a new wave of Call of Duty hype. March 2020 saw Shadow of the Colossus and Sonic Forces join the service, and again, both these games were well-loved and accepted by fans.
March 2021 took this pattern and nailed it home. Farpoint VR, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Remnant: From the Ashes, and more joining the service, really putting the “big” in the “Big March” pattern. Some of these months had more sprinkled on top, but what’s clear is that March has a legacy to uphold.
How PS Plus Free Games for March 2022 Keeps the Pattern Going
It’s hard to compare to Bloodborne, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, Shadow of the Colossus, and Final Fantasy 7 Remake. But, at least well enough to keep this pattern going for everyone, the PS Plus free games for March 2022 are certainly the best thus far this year. PS Plus free games for January 2022 were petty solid, but the PS Plus free games for February 2022 were filled with controversy. The only controversial aspect of this PS Plus March 2022 lineup is some technical difficulties with Ghost of Tsushima: Legends.
The PS Plus free games for March 2022 include ARK: Survival Evolved, Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, Ghostrunner, and Team Sonic Racing. The sheer quality and variety of games here speak for themselves. ARK is a survival, sandbox game, while Ghost of Tsushima: Legends is a Samurai-inspired, mythical multiplayer standalone expansion. Ghostrunner is a lightning-fast, cyberpunk action platformer, while Team Sonic Racing is a kart racing game based on the classic franchise.
As this upholds the pattern, the next big question is pretty obvious: what will PS Plus give away for March 2023?
PS Plus subscribers get a handful of free games every month.
