Microsoft has revealed the four free games coming to Xbox Games with Gold in March 2020.
Xbox Game Pass is quite rightly the focus of Microsoft’s subscription services at the moment, but it’s worth remembering that Xbox Live Gold subscribers still get a crop of four free games every month. Sometimes they are good. Sometimes they are bad. Sometimes they are March 2020. That’s not to say that we don’t like next month’s free Xbox games, it’s just that they don’t excite us very much.
Both Xbox One titles are certainly worth playing. Batman: The Enemy Within is an enjoyable comic book romp and one of Telltale’s last best games before the studio, in its previous iteration, wound down. Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is also fun, as you’d expect from the always reliable WayForward.
March’s Xbox 360 games are Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, which is far from MercurySteam’s best work and Sonic Generations, which is fine, but no Sonic Mania.
The Xbox Games with Gold titles for March are available during the following dates.
Xbox Games With Gold – March 2020
- Batman: The Enemy Within – March 1 – 31, 2020
- Shantae: Half-Genie Hero – March 16 – April 15, 2020
Xbox 360 and Xbox One
- Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 – March 1 – 15, 2020
- Sonic Generations – March 16 – 31, 2020
In the meantime, three of February‘s Games with Gold titles are still available to download. TT Isle of Man and the original Star Wars Battlefront are free until the end of the month. Call of Cthulhu is available until March 15, 2020.
