This month’s PlayStation Plus lineup, which Sony announced today, is led by the launch of a new game: the buzzed-about arcade sports title Disc Jam.
Developed by High Horse Entertainment, a group of ex-Activision developers with experience working on Call of Duty, Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero, Disc Jam is a mix of tennis and air hockey. The game supports one-on-one or two-on-two play with a bunch of characters, each of which has unique abilities, and High Horse has been running a beta that has gotten a very positive response.
Disc Jam will debut on PlayStation 4, along with March’s other PlayStation Plus games, on March 7. It’s the same release strategy as another indie sports game, Psyonix’s Rocket League, which was a free PlayStation Plus game when it launched on PS4 in July 2015. Disc Jam will also be available on Steam, although High Horse hasn’t yet announced a PC release date.
Tearaway Unfolded, Media Molecule and Tarsier Studios’ expanded version of the beloved PlayStation Vita game, is the other PS4 title in March’s lineup. PlayStation 3 owners will get Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late, the 2D fighting game from Ecole Software and French Bread, as well as Sandlot’s Earth Defense Force 2025.
The two Vita games for March are the critically acclaimed Severed from DrinkBox Studios, and Gareth Noyce’s Lumo. That adventure game will also be available free on PS4 via cross-buy.
In the meantime, you still have a few days to pick up the February PlayStation Plus games.
Correction: Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late is more of a fighting game than a visual novel. We’ve edited the article to reflect this.
Correction 2: Tearaway Unfolded was developed by Media Molecule in conjunction with Tarsier Studios, and is more than a simple port of the original Vita game. We’ve edited the article to reflect this.
