March's Free PS Plus Games Includes the Coveted Standalone Version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered

There's also The Witness, but no PS3 or Vita games.

PlayStation has also announced its lineup of free games for PS Plus in March. PS Vita and PS3 games are now absent from the lineup, bringing this month's free game count down to two: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and The Witness.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is an updated version of Infinity Ward's 2007 FPS classic. The 2016 Modern Warfare Remastered was originally bundled with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare before being released as a standalone game in 2017. The remaster features the same timeless gunplay you remember, but in HD and 4K resolution.

Sony didn't announce whether the PS Plus version of Modern Warfare Remastered would include the Map Pack, which was released as a separate DLC pack. The DLC was controversial as it added content not found in the original Modern Warfare and became an additional purchase for a decade old game.

The Witness, on the other hand, is the complete opposite from Modern Warfare Remastered. There is no shooting in Jonathan Blow's follow-up to Braid. Instead, just first-person exploration and tricky puzzles that really require some outside-the-box thinking. I personally found it obtuse in some sections, but was also surprised by how some of the puzzles were woven into the game world.

This is also the last week you can get PS Vita and PS3 games as part of PS Plus. February's line up, which includes Divekick, Metal Gear Solid 4, Gunhouse, and Rogue Aces, is still available to download. Check out the rest of February's PS Plus games here.
