Shadow Of The Colossus And Sonic Forces Are March’s Free PlayStation Plus Games

If you subscribe to PlayStation Plus, you can download Shadow of the Colossus and Sonic Forces for free starting on March 3. You'll have until April 6 to get both of these games. You also have until March 2 to download February's free games, which are BioShock: The Collection, Firewall Zero Hour, and The Sims 4.

Shadow of the Colossus is a must-play game that scored a 9 out of 10 rating from Game Informer's review. If you haven't played the game since it originally released on PlayStation 2, this enhanced PlayStation 4 version features all-new visuals, 4k display options, and the ability to play it at 60 frames per second on PlayStation 4 Pro.

Sonic Forces didn't fare as well, scoring just a 6.5 out of 10 in our review. People are high on Sonic right now after the surprisingly fun movie, so this game may be worth a look if you want to see what he's been up to in games.

Lastly, on March 27, PlayStation Plus subscribers can check out Predator: Hunting Gro..

Become A DJ In Fuser, A New Game From The Creators Of Rock Band

Click to watch embedded media The trailer above gives you a little taste of the vibe developer Harmonix and publisher NCSoft are trying to achieve in Harmonix's new music-mixing game, Fuser. The video below shows you a small sliver of gameplay. As you can see, you suit up as a DJ and are tasked to blend songs in realtime into something unique. Fuser offers more than 100 songs from 50 Cent's “In Da Club” to Lady Gaga's “Born This Way.”

Harmonix bills Fuser as a “nonstop virtual music festival where you control the music.” You'll do this through a campaign in which you must win over the crowd to unlock new content, or simply freestyle to make mixes you can share with friends. You can also play with them in an online multiplayer mode. Unlike most of Harmonix's music games, you won't need a specific peripheral to mix music – you can use a controller. Fuser is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC in 2020.

Get An Ashe Skin During Overwatch’s Mardi Gras Event

You want Overwatch 2. We want Overwatch 2. No one knows when that day will be just yet, but for now, Blizzard is making sure we have reasons to keep playing the original game. Today delivers one good reason to boot up the original once again. If you can rack up nine wins, you'll unlock a festive Mardi Gras skin for Ashe (and B.O.B.). If you immediately thought Ashe looks a little bit like Harley Quinn, you are not alone – we had the same takeaway.

Like all of Overwatch's recent challenges, this Mardi Gras-themed one can be completed by getting wins in any mode. At three wins you'll earn new icons for Ashe, another three wins unlocks a spray for her, and then you just need three more victories to get that awesome new skin. If you want another five sprays for Ashe, you can get one for watching two hours of Overwatch streams on Twitch, two more for another two hours viewed, and yet another two for two more.
