A post was made on the Official PlayStation blog today regarding the new games that will be available for free during the month of March 2017. Of course, you must be a subscriber to PlayStation Plus.
Here is the full lineup:
Disc Jam (PS4)
Disc Jam is a new arcade sports game being developed by former Call of Duty, Guitar Hero, and Tony Hawk developers. Relive the intense competitive action of an old coin-op classic, but in a modern package complete with online play and ranked leagues.

Tearaway Unfolded invites you on a journey to help your plucky messenger make a very important delivery.
Reach into your TV with your DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller to unleash gusts of wind to unfold hidden areas, confound enemies and ride a paper plane. Use your new powers to catch objects thrown out of the TV screen and hurl them back into hard-to-reach places or at enemies, and guide your messenger through scary places by shining the light bar at the screen.

Witness the rebirth of a genre in Lumo – a classic isometric adventure with a modern twist for gamers young and old alike!
As a contemporary take on the long-lost isometric platform genre, Lumo can be enjoyed by anyone looking for an absorbing, challenging and rewarding adventure. But for those who lived through the golden age of videogames – the 80s and early 90s – or know about the games and culture from that time, layer upon layer of nods, winks and touches to those times help build upon an experience that’s as heart-warming as it is exciting!
With over 400 rooms across four unique zones, six hidden mini-games and all kinds of secrets to uncover, Lumo is a true voyage of discovery. How much you discover just depends on how hard you look…
Take control of a one-armed warrior named Sasha, wielding a living sword on her journey through a nightmare world in search of her family. Swipe-based touch controls will let you solve puzzles, find secrets, and do battle with a host of disturbing monsters.As the journey goes on, you’ll unlock new abilities, ascend an RPG-style upgrade tree, and tease apart the mysteries of the dark fantasy universe Sasha finds herself in.
• Dungeon Combat: Master offensive and defensive touch combat techniques to survive intense battles against a menagerie of enemies.
• Severing: Best enemies in combat for a chance at severing their body parts — then wear them to gain new powers or consume them to upgrade your equipment and abilities.
• Exploration: Follow branching routes through the unknown, using your wits to avoid hazards and solve puzzles.
• Music: Original soundtrack from Juno-nominated band YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN featuring Pantayo.
This is going to be a very interesting month. We’ll finally see the potential of Disc Jam after its announcement from the last E3. Then, we have Tearaway, a first-party title that we don’t have any more excuses not to play. About Severed, well… if you have a Vita, it’s a must play game. I’ve personally played about half the game and it’s a unique experience not to be missed. I’m also very curious about Lumo, which I have never heard of before, however it looks promising.
There is definitely something for all kind of gamers, going from adventures and puzzles to fighting games and a shooter. Are you happy with this selection? Are you going to try these games out? Let us know in the comments and forums.
