Xbox Games with Gold for March 2017 confirmed

Games with GoldWow, where has February gone? Feels like it just started last week, and already we’re looking at confirmation of March’s Xbox Games with Gold titles. So what do Xbox Live Gold subscribers have to look forward to next month?

For Xbox One Games with Gold, Xbox Live Gold members can download Layers of Fear ($19.99 ERP) for free during the month of March. Evolve Ultimate Edition ($49.99 ERP) will be available as a free download from March 16th to April 15th.

On Xbox 360, starting Wednesday, March 1st, Borderlands 2 ($19.99 ERP) will be free for Xbox Live Gold members through March 15th. Then on March 16th, Xbox Live Gold Members can download Heavy Weapon ($9.99 ERP) for free through March 31st.

The Xbox 360 titles are a bit of a mixed bag. Heavy Weapon is a very old Xbox 360 title which is already backwards compatible via EA Access, so it’s not a new title entirely. Borderlands 2 is a fantastic game, but a majority of players would have played it already, being one of last gen’s greatest RPG shooters, but if it’s new to you, you’re in luck!

Evolve is an interesting choice considering the reception it got at launch in 2015, and the fact that further development on the title has ceased entirely. The online community is practically dead for the game, but perhaps this free offering will help revitalise the 4v1 shooter?
