Microsoft has confirmed the four free games coming to Xbox Games with Gold in March.
Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 is the pick of March’s Xbox Games with Gold lineup. Popcap’s riotous third-person shooter is getting on a bit – it was first released in 2016 – but it has proved to be quietly influential, and a sequel is long overdue.
It’s joined on Xbox One by Climax Studios’ breezy role-playing game, Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion.
March’s Xbox 360 titles are the Lucasart’s tactical FPS, Star Wars Republic Commando, which was first released on the OG Xbox back in 2005, and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance from PlatinumGames. Both games are also playable on Xbox One via the magical wonder of Backward Compatibility.
Some dates for you.
Xbox Games With Gold – March 2019
- Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion – March 1 – 31
- Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 – March 16 – April 15
Xbox 360 and Xbox One
- Star Wars Republic Commando – March 1 – 15
- Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance – March 16 – 31
There’s still time to grab three games from February’s Games with Gold lineup. Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon and Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy are available until the end of the month, and Super Bomberman R is available until March 15, 2019.
