Following closely behind yesterday's reveal of the Xbox Games with Gold lineup for March 2020, PlayStation has now revealed its own complimentary games for next month. As usual, that includes two more PS4 games for subscribers to add to their libraries at no additional charge. Here's what to expect in March on PS4.
Bluepoint Games handled the remake of this all-time classic back in 2018 after Team Ico captured the imagination of so many over a decade earlier. The artsy game has players taking on 16 massive stone beasts, called Colossi, in epic deathmatches. At the end of the trail of executions, he believes he will manage to revive his loved one. Colossus is regarded as one of the best games of all-time and it's not one that seemed to lose a step with its remake. The game still garnered nearly unanimous praise. Today it has a 92 average from 126 OpenCritic submissions, with a recommendation percentage of 97%.
They can't all be winners. Few series remind us of this apparent truth more than Sonic, which has been so up and down over its decades-long time in the spotlight that every game feels like a coin flip. Following on the heels of the revered, retro-styled Sonic Mania, Sonic Forces felt back into old trappings for the franchise. It seems 2D Sonic is just the much safer play, as this newest 3D attempt wowed few players. That's evidenced by the game's OpenCritic score. It currently sits with a lowly 56 average from 91 critics. An abysmal 13% recommend the game for play.
Both games will be on offer beginning in March, so you'll have a few weeks to claim them - and you really don't want to miss Shadow of the Colossus. For more complimentary games, don't miss the Xbox Games with Gold for March 2020.
