Microsoft reveals the four free games coming to Xbox Games With Gold in March 2018.
First up is Trials of the Blood Dragon, RedLynx’s curious mashup of the beloved motorcycle series with Ubisoft’s Far Cry Blood Dragon spin-off. The end product is strangely unsatisfying – Trials HD remains the series peak – but it’s still worth a look.
More impressive is Superhot, which is available from March 16 to April 15. Although billed as a first-person shooter, it plays more like a puzzle game, and remains one of the most inventive takes on the genre we’ve seen. Essential.
Over on Xbox 360 – and Xbox One via the magic of Backwards Compatibility – you can look forward to not downloading Brave: The Video Game, and Quantum Conundrum.
Xbox Games With Gold: March 2018
- Trials of the Blood Dragon – March 1 to 30
- Superhot – March 16 to April 15
Xbox 360 and Xbox One
- Brave: The Video Game – March 1 to 15
- Quantum Conundrum – March 16 to 31
Don’t forget, you can still download two games from February’s lineup. Crazy Taxi and Shadow Warrior are available until the end of the month, and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles – India is available until March 15, 2018.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
