Sony is revealing the free PlayStation Plus games for next month just in time for next month’s PlayStation Plus announcement. There is a racing game in the PlayStation Plus lineup for March, which is a pleasant surprise.
The PlayStation Plus subscribers will have the opportunity to download Team Sonic Racing for free in March as part of the PlayStation Plus program.
Since DiRT 5 appeared on the PlayStation Plus Monthly Games list in January, this is the first racing title which has been added to the list.
PlayStation Plus subscribers can play Team Sonic Racing for free
It focuses on team racing, as the title suggests, and is the sequel to Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.
With 15 colourful characters from the Sonic universe to choose from, Team Sonic Racing also includes the titular hedgehog as well as Tails, Knuckles and, of course, all his friends.
Teams of three members compete in each race and have the option to swap boosts and weapons with your teammates in order to perform better.
It is true that the karts are upgradeable, but Team Sonic Racing doesn’t keep the transforming mechanic from the last Sonic Racing game that allows you to turn the kart into a boat and a plane during races.
It is quite possible that Team Sonic Racing may have slipped under your radar as it released just before Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. If you missed out on this opportunity then this is a great chance for you.
The PS4 version of Team Sonic Racing, although not ported to PS5, can be played on the PS5 via backwards compatibility, despite it being a PS4 game.
Team Sonic Racing will be available for free download to PlayStation Plus subscribers on 1st March via the PlayStation Store.
Aside from Ghost of Tsushima: Legends (PS5/PS4), Ark: Survival Evolved (PS4), and Ghostrunner (PS5), there are other free games in the PS Plus March collection.
More kart racing goodness in March
The month of March is shaping up to be one of the best in recent years for fans of kart racing. Team Sonic Racing was released for PlayStation Plus subscribers free of charge a few days later, and Chocobo GP was released on Nintendo Switch a few days after that, on 10 March.
There will then be the release of Wave 1 of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass on 18 March, followed by Wave 2 on 19 March. It can be purchased for £22.49 from the store.
Wave 1 features eight classic courses from previous Mario Kart games, such as Paris Promenade, Toad Circuit, and Choco Mountain. It includes a total of 48 tracks divided into four waves as part of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass.
