Welcome back once again to our monthly column dedicated to video games available for free. Every month, thanks to some subscription services and company initiatives, so many titles are given away.
With all these free video games however there is always a risk of not being able to redeem someone in time. For this reason we have decided to write this article, in which we will tell you about the many games free offered in March by the various monthly subscription services and more.
Many of the games we will talk about in this article will be free throughout March, but others will only during a certain period. For this reason, we recommend that you redeem the titles that interest you as soon as possible, so as to avoid unpleasant situations.
Also we remind you once again that to download most of the free games we will tell you about you will need to have the right subscription. Fortunately, however, many of these services have a free trial period which in some cases you can use to redeem the games that interest you.
PlayStation Plus - The free games of March 2021
As always, we start our list with the PlayStation Plus, the subscription service of Sony. As you know by now, the PlayStation Plus offers many advantages, such as the ability to play online on PS4 / PS5 and to load saves in the cloud, but it also allows you to redeem three free titles per month. Here are the free games available in March with the service:

- Remnant: From the Ashes
- Farpoint (VR)
- Makeup (PS5)
Apparently this time Sony has not spared itself with the quality of the titles offered and, as if that were not enough, has decided to give even one more than usual. Of all the games on the list, the one that will surely interest players most is obviously Final Fantasy 7 Remake. This great title will allow you to relive the historic adventure of Cloud in a way that is as new as it is spectacular.
But be careful not to underestimate the other 3 games available this month. MODELS is a very interesting puzzle game where you will have to play with the size of the objects to be able to continue while Remnant: From the Ashes it's a fun hybrid between a soulslike and a TPS, and is set on what remains of planet earth after the invasion of mysterious extra-dimensional creatures. Also, if you own a VR display, we suggest you also take a look at Farpoint, a great Sci-fi FPS specially developed for virtual reality.
