Games with Gold for March Goes Live a Day Early

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:

Xbox One

Trials of the Blood Dragon
Normal price: $14.99
Free availability: March 1 to March 30

Description: Trials meets Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and it’s not all about the bikes anymore! There’s running, shooting, swinging, tanks, jetpacks and BMXs to play with. Fully animated cut-scenes provide the humor and weapons deliver the boom. Power your way through 30 missions across seven different worlds and if you’re feeling adventurous, try to unlock the Ominous Locked Safe by following the cryptic clues along the way.

Superhot
Normal price: $24.99
Free availability: March 16 to April 15

Description: Play this award-winning FPS originally conceived at a 7-day FPS Game Jam. After thousands of hours of design and development, the result is this wildly popular, innovative, and constantly changing masterpiece. In a new twist on the genre, time stands still if you do.

Xbox 360

Brave: The Video Game
