March’s PS Plus Free Games Lineup Announced

Sony have today announced the free games that will be available via PS Plus in March.

PS4 players will receive the user-voted winner, Broforce, along with Galak-Z. The two titles have been detailed in the official PlayStation blog. The details are as follows:

So what can you expect as a bro in Broforce? You’ll fight evil and rescue bro teammates using fire, napalm, and whatever else you find in the name of freedom. We hope you enjoy this run ‘n’ gun shooter with up to four of your closest bros.

Next up, Galak-Z, a two dimensional sci-fi shooter taken to the next level. Pilot your ship through this physics-driven, procedurally generated world while surviving several enemy factions. Wait, did I mention that your ship can transform into a laser sword-wielding Mech? Can this get any better? (Hint: Stay tuned for exciting news about Galak-Z in the coming weeks.)

PS3 users will have access to The Last Guy and Super Stardust HD.

The Last Guy is a rescue game in which the eponymous player character must guide civilians to escape from monster-infested cities. The game is played from a top-down perspective of a city that has been overrun by giant monsters, which the game refers to as “zombies”. The player controls The Last Guy, whose job is to find and lead stranded civilians to the escape zone before the time runs out, while evading enemy creatures. He can dash, manipulate the line of people following him, and use thermal imaging to find survivors. Over a dozen playable locations include cities from North America, Europe and Asia. Online features include a leaderboard for each city, a leaderboard for overall score, and counters that record the number of people rescued. Each city also hosts four VIPs which, when rescued, add bonus points to the final score and unlock additional bonus stages.

In Super Stardust HD the player controls a space fighter craft that can move in any direction on a spherical shield surrounding a planet, while simultaneously firing in any direction independent of its movement. The primary threats against the player are three types of asteroids and various enemy spacecraft, which appear on the playfield at certain time intervals. The ship is equipped with three upgradeable weapons, a limited arsenal of bombs, and a boost capability that grants temporary invincibility and recharges after use. Each weapon is more effective against certain types of asteroid and enemies than others. Items include weapon upgrades and a shield that absorbs one fatal hit against the player’s ship.

Super Stardust HD provides several modes of play, each with their own online leaderboards. The default game mode, Arcade, takes the player through a series of five planets, each consisting of five main phases, the last of which is a boss battle. Planet Mode allows the player to play any one of five planets in the same way, ending the game after the planet is complete. Both of these modes support both single-player and two-player cooperative play.

Lastly, PS Vita owners will receive Flame Over and Reality Fighters.

Flame Over: Blending top down “squirt em-up” action and “Pyroguelike” game mechanics, Flame Over features fast-paced fire-fighting thrills, randomly generated levels, 4 different game zones and dastardly hazards at every turn!

Guide moustachioed fire-fighting legend, Blaze Carruthers, in a race against time and near-certain death! Fight through all 16 floors of the Infernal Industries building in a quest to save it from the dynamically spreading fires threatening to raze it to the ground! Fail, and it’s Flame Over…

Reality Fighters is a fighting game where the player can take a photo of himself or herself and, using the game’s editing tools, become a video game character. The game boasts over 8 trillion unique fighter combinations, which can be used in solo and online play.
