So we are almost through February, and that means it’s time for game companies to try and encourage people to buy their stuff, mostly by giving away free stuff. In this latest case, Microsoft has taken to announcing their next batch of free games for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Yes, if you didn’t know, Microsoft gives away free games delivered digitally to gamer’s consoles every month in which they have a valid Xbox Live Gold account.
In March 2019, the month kicks off with 2 free titles, one each for Xbox One and Xbox 360. On the One, Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion leads the charge. This 3D tongue-in-cheek adventure title borrows heavily from the humor of the show, and offers plenty of fun and chaos as you try to save The Land of Ooo from an underwater apocalypse. The first 360 title is the surprisingly solid shooter, Star Wars Republic Commando. This FPS from 2005 featured a Metroid-esque UI with an intelligent NPC squad that makes the challenging firefights of the Clone Wars a ton of fun.
Then there’s another pair of One and 360 games heading for the service starting on March 16th. Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 comes to the Xbox One on March 16th, and brings a ton of puzzle-solving goodness from the 2016 EA title to a new crop of gamers. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance rounds out the bundle of free offerings for March. This 2013 action title brings Raiden back as a katana-wielding cyborg who can literally slice the world in half. This game is so over-the-top that it’s hard to describe.
Here’s the full list of new games coming next month for Games With Gold for free:
- Available for the whole month – Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion (normally $39.99)
- From March 16 to April 15 – Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 (normally $19.99)
- From March 1 to 15 – Star Wars Republic Commando (normally $9.99) (plays on Xbox One)
- From March 16 to 31 – Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (normally $19.99) (plays on Xbox One)
