PlayStation announced March’s free games for the Essential tier, as well as a small portion of the free games coming to Extra, ahead of schedule during its State of Play live stream held this week.
Despite the early announcement, they are still added to the subscription service on the first and third Tuesday of the month, respectively. This is March 7 for Essential games and March 21 for the Extra games.
We remind you that Essential is the basic level that allows you to play online. Each month there are three to five games to claim within that time period, which you can then access as long as your account has an active subscription. Extra is like a video streaming service for games, you get access to hundreds of titles, but they can be removed at any time.
