With the end of the month approaching, Microsoft has announced the Xbox Games with Gold March 2017. Those subscribe to the Xbox Live Gold can download the free games starting on March 1, 2017. Microsoft will make four games, two for the Xbox One and two for the Xbox 360, available for free for the month of March.
Xbox One owners subscribed to the Xbox Live Gold program can download the two Xbox 360 games via the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Program. Meanwhile, subscribers can still download the Xbox Game with Gold February 2017 until next week. The Xbox Games with Gold March 2017 includes Layers of Fear and Evolve for the Xbox One, and Borderlands 2 and Heavy Weapon for the Xbox 360.
Layers of Fear
Microsoft will make Layers of Fear available for free download to Xbox Live Gold subscribers starting on March 1, 2017. Xbox Live Gold subscribers can download Layers of Fear anytime in March while other games would only be up for two weeks. Steam users have ranked the game nine out of 10 and it has the price of US$19.99 but Xbox Live Gold subscribers can get it for free.
Microsoft will add Evolve to the list of free Xbox Games with Gold next month starting on March 16, 2017, until April 15, 2017. Xbox Live Gold subscribers find this as a great threat from Microsoft since the game has the current price of US$49.99. Although Steam users only gave the game a six out of 10, Evolve still has a huge fan base.
Microsoft will release Borderlands 2 for free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers on March 1, 2017, until March 15, 2017. The game has an outstanding rating of 10 out of 10 on Steam and won several gaming awards before. Although 2K Games released the game on Sept. 18, 2012, Borderlands 2 still brings the fun with its unique action RPG first-person shooting genre.
Microsoft will include Heavy Weapon in the list of Xbox Games with Gold for the month of March starting March 16, 2017, until March 31, 2017. Probably the most underrated game on the list, Heavy Weapon still shows potential since PopCap developed the game. It has the current price of US$9.99 across all platforms.
Xbox Games With Gold March 2017: February Games Still Available
Xbox Live Gold subscribers can still download three out of the five games released for free this month. Subscribers can download both Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed until Feb. 28, 2017. Meanwhile, Project Cars would remain in the Xbox Game with Gold list until March 15, 2017.
