Microsoft announced the Games with Gold for March 2018 today. If you're an Xbox Live Gold member, you should definitely be checking these out every month, as it offers four free games (two Xbox One and two backward compatible Xbox 360), as long as you claim them within the specified dates.
Here's what's available for free next month:
Discover an epic single player experience, combining the top notch gameplay of Trials with the unique style and attitude of Blood Dragon. Take control of Rex Power Colt’s cybercommando kids as they drive, shoot, swing, tame and travel through different environments. Expect also hot competition with Ghost mode, Global Score and Leaderboards.
• TRIALS WITH A STORYLINE 30 missions across 7 different worlds, fully animated cut scenes, colourful characters and a self-contained story set 12 years after the events of Far Cry Blood Dragon.
• OFF YER BIKE! As well as the trusty Motorbike, discover the art of the BMX, 8-wheel tank, Turbo Flip R/C, jetpack and mine cart. You migh even have to go on foot, a first in the history of Trials.
• USE YOUR HANDS Beyond driving, the level of action is cranked up with the addition of weapons and a grappling hook, bringing a whole new level of gameplay to the world of Trials. If you don’t succeed at first, try shooting it.
Time moves only when you move.
Blurring the lines between cautious strategy and unbridled mayhem, SUPERHOT is the FPS in which time moves only when you move. No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It's just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing the weapons of fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets.
With its unique, stylized graphics SUPERHOT finally adds something new and disruptive to the FPS genre. SUPERHOT’s polished, minimalist visual language helps you concentrate on the most important - on the fluidity of gameplay and cinematic beauty of the fight.
- Endless Mode - How long can you last against unyielding waves of enemies?
- Challenge Mode - Take on SUPERHOT with your bare hands, no restarts, timed runs, and more.
- Replay Director - Edit and share your most epic in-game moments
- Extras - Delve further into SUPERHOT with mini-games, ASCII art, and [redacted].
Thirty months in the making. Thousands of hours put into development and design. From its humble origins in the 7 Day FPS game jam, through a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign to a plethora of awards and nominations from industry experts, SUPERHOT is a labor of love by its independant, dedicated team and thousands of backers from all around the globe.
In Disney•Pixar Brave: The Video Game, challenge destiny and change your fate! Play as Merida, a Will ‘o the Wisp and other popular characters from new Disney•Pixar film, as you run, jump and battle your way through the rugged landscape of mythical Scotland. With your wits and bravery, face off against fierce enemies to end a magical curse and save the kingdom! * Play as Merida Single-Player or Coop with a Will ‘O The Wisp * Compete with archery mini-games using Kinect™ for Xbox 360
When you arrive to visit your uncle, you notice something’s wrong. He’s not there to greet you and there was an explosion just as you arrived. Rescue your uncle using his newest invention, the Interdimensional Shift Device. Shift between five different dimensions in real time and work your way through his crazy complex mansion!
Presumably, the dates for Trials of the Blood Dragon are a typo, as the first Xbox One game typically lasts the full month. Also, it's interesting that Brave requires a Kinect, as Microsoft recently killed off the product from its Xbox One lineup.
Of course, you still have plenty of time to claim this month's Games with Gold before the month is through. You've got until the end of February to grab Shadow Warrior (Xbox One) and Crazy Taxi (Xbox 360), and until March 15 to claim Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India (Xbox One).
