A big month for Xbox Live Games With Gold in March
March will be an exciting month for Xbox Live Gold subscribers, with the news that Rayman Legends will be joining #IDARB on Xbox One, while the Xbox 360 will be receiving Tomb Raider & BioShock Infinite, as part of the Games With Gold promotion.
All of these titles will be available for free, but Gold members on the Xbox 360 will only be able to download Tomb Raider from the 1st-15th of March, while BioShock Infinite will be available from the 16th-31st of March.
In conjunction with this, it has also been revealed that Microsoft will be doubling the amount of free games for Gold members in April, but have yet to announce which games will be included.
The addition of Rayman Legends is a huge bonus for Xbox One owners, who are being treated to a game which has one of the best average review scores of all Xbox One games at Metacritic. We originally reviewed Rayman Legends during its original Xbox 360 release, and we found it to be “one of the best platformers of this generation” before it made the jump to Xbox One, adding some extra features, improved graphics and reduced loading times.
#IDARB has been free with the Games With Gold package throughout February, and this will continue in March. #IDARB is an indie game, and features game play which resembles a mix of Super Smash Bros and multiple sports titles, as two teams attempt to score more points than the other, in addition to featuring customization tools and a unique hashbomb system.
Games With Gold is also adding two critically acclaimed titles to its lineup for the Xbox 360, in the form of Tomb Raider (1st-15th March) and BioShock Infinite (16th-31st March).
Tomb Raider was released back in March 2013 as a reboot of the franchise, and it was considered a huge success by many critics. Cassidee M explained in her review, that it “not only delivers on its many systems and conventions; it masters them in a way I never could have imagined it would”.
Meanwhile, BioShock Infinite is the most recent title in the BioShock series, which scored multiple awards and we found it to be a game that we would “recommend to anyone who enjoys shooters and games with strong narratives”.
The Xbox Live Games With Gold program began in July 2013, offering Xbox Gold subscribers free access to games, with new titles offered each month.
