March 8 is International Women’s Day, a celebration of the many influential and inspiring women around the world. To mark the occasion, Sony has released a free International Women’s Day PS4 theme featuring some of the iconic female leads from PlayStation games new and old.
The characters featured include Horizon Zero Dawn’s Aloy, The Last of Us’ Ellie, Freya from God of War, the Hunter from Bloodborne, and leading duo Chloe and Nadine from Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. The theme is available to download now on the European and Australian PlayStation Stores; it’s not yet listed on the US PS Store, but given it’s International Women’s Day, we expect it shouldn’t be too much longer before it appears. [Update: PSN in the US has now added its theme; it features a different design but many of the same characters.]
In other PlayStation news, PS4 users can now play their games using their iPhones and iPads via Remote Play, thanks to a recent PS4 system software update. Once your console is updated, you’ll also need to download the PS4 Remote Play app from the Apple App Store. The app itself is compatible with the vast majority of PS4 games, with virtual buttons and sticks appearing on the iOS device screen, though you may find a bluetooth gamepad allows greater control.
Finally, PS4 players can pick up March’s PS Plus games now. This month the free titles are Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
