It’s a fresh new month, and with it comes new free goodies from Microsoft for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. March brings some exciting new titles in the Games with Gold program that will appeal to a plethora of fans, so let’s look at what we have in store.
The Xbox One will start with the latest video game tied to the popular Adventure Time series with, Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion. While the game reportedly has shortcomings and comes across as simplistic in its game mechanics, it does capture the charm of the show that fans love. The game will run from March 1 to 31.
Continuing with the Xbox One, the latter half of the month brings the online shooter Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. Packing in many of the iconic plants and zombie variants fans loved from the first game and the original incarnation, Garden Warfare 2 offers fans a satisfying shooter, while also adding in single-player content for those who prefer to play alone. The game runs from March 16 to April 15.
From March 1 to 15, you can get the classic Xbox title Star Wars: Republic Commando. Work as the leader of a clone trooper squad and issue orders to your unit to progress and clear objectives. Meanwhile, carry out orders and fight for the life of your squad in this first-person shooter adventure.
Finally, March 15 brings Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Take on the role of Raiden in this fast-paced action game, as you wield a variety of blades and carve your way through a cavalcade of enemies. While indeed flawed, Rising manages to offer satisfying combat that provides enough substance to remain enjoyable, while providing plenty of style within its grizzly combat.
As usual all the previous generation games will be available to Xbox One users thanks to backwards compatibility. With plenty of variety, there is something for everyone this March.
