For the second time in three months, Microsoft has lifted the toll gates a bit early on its Games with Gold promotion: The first of the March freebies are already available.
Reminder: All Xbox 360 games in the Games for Gold promotion also work in Xbox One in Backward Compatibility mode too. So Xbox One users with Xbox Live Gold subscriptions are technically getting at least four free games each month.
Here’s what’s new for March:
Trials of the Blood Dragon
