On Wednesday, Sony unveiled the latest PlayStation Plus Game Catalog additions for March, with this month’s additions including Ghostwire: Tokyo, Immortals Fenyx Rising and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection. This lineup, along with 14 others, will be made available to PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium members starting on Tuesday, March 21.
A diverse selection of high-quality games is available to suit all preferences and age groups in both the Monthly Games and Game Catalogue additions. Players can redeem the three recently added Monthly Games until April 6 and play them for as long as they have a PlayStation Plus subscription, which starts from $11.95 per month or $79.95 annually.
In Ghostwire: Tokyo, players find themselves in a supernatural version of Tokyo, where they must use a combination of ghost-hunting skills and upgradeable elemental powers to fight off the dangerous forces behind the disappearance of Tokyo’s inhabitants.
The game features the unique haptic feedback and adaptive triggers of the PS5 controller, allowing players to feel the power of their supernatural abilities. With stunning graphics rendered by the PS5’s next-gen ray tracing technology, players can explore a hauntingly beautiful, rain-soaked Tokyo.

Immortals Fenyx Rising
Ubisoft’s action-adventure game Immortals Fenyx Rising takes players on an epic quest to save the Greek gods and their home from a dangerous curse. As Fenyx, a winged demigod, players wield the powers of the gods to face off against mythological beasts and engage in an epic battle against the deadliest Titan in Greek mythology, Typhon.
With a unique and humorous take on the open-world genre, Immortals Fenyx Rising features dynamic action and combat, as well as engaging stories inspired by Greek mythology.
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection
The Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection allows gamers to experience Naughty Dog’s epic storytelling and action-packed adventure on the PS5. The collection features two critically acclaimed single-player games, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, both of which have been remastered with improved visuals and frame rates.
Players can join the charismatic and complex thieves Nathan Drake and Chloe Frazer on a globe-trotting journey filled with wonder, adventure, and lost lore. The Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection promises to deliver the iconic franchise’s largest blockbuster action set pieces and is sure to be a must-have for fans of the series.
Lack of retro games on PlayStation Plus Premium
While the PlayStation Plus Extra subscribers can enjoy the newly-added games, PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers, who pay exclusively for older games, are disappointed with Sony’s lack of retro games update. Only one PlayStation 1 and two PSP titles are included in the exclusive lineup.
The lone PlayStation 1 game is Ridge Racer Type 4, a well-regarded title. The game came after PSP Ridge Racer 2 was included in December.
The two PSP games include Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror from 2006. Game journalists have suggested that this will likely be the most attention the Syphon Filter franchise has received from Sony in years.
The second PSP game added to the PlayStation Plus lineup is Ape Academy 2, a spin-off mini-game collection from a series many fans have likely forgotten. The PlayStation Blog initially listed the Ape Escape 2 for the PlayStation 1, which was incorrect, given that Ape Escape 2 is a PlayStation 2 title.
Sony has yet to add Dino Crisis to the PlayStation Plus lineup, despite having promoted it for PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers in July.
