Make Room for Three Amazing Games in March – and Double Games with Gold in April
Clean your couch off and get ready for three awesome titles, completely free to Xbox Live Gold members, thanks to Games with Gold. Rayman Legends is the free game this month on Xbox One, and it is – believe us – one of the best platformers ever made. Xbox 360 owners get Tomb Raider, a fantastic, pulse-pounding reboot of the iconic series. And they also get BioShock Infinite, the multi-multi-award-winning shooter set in a city among the clouds. As usual, all games are available only for a limited time*, as part of the ongoing Games with Gold program.
And if these three amazing titles aren’t enough for you, we have one more big announcement: Since the program’s launch at E3 2013, you’ve collectively downloaded over 100,000,000 Games with Gold games! It’s definitely clear to us that Xbox Live Gold members love to game, and Games with Gold fuels that passion. To commemorate this huge milestone, Xbox is giving you more of what you love, with twice the free Games in April! Next month, you can look forward to four free games on Xbox 360, and two free games on Xbox One.
Seriously, you really can’t lose this month, or in April (and we promise it’s not an April Fools joke). To-date, we’ve featured a diverse set of iconic titles like Tomb Raider, Halo 3, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and Saints Row: The Third – and we’re excited to add many more games to that list in the years to come. It’s never been a better time to be a gamer with Xbox Live Gold!
* Rayman: Legends ($39.99 ERP) Available from March 1-31 on Xbox One
* Tomb Raider ($19.99 ERP): Available from March 1-15 on Xbox 360
* BioShock Infinite ($29.99 ERP): Available from March 16-31 on Xbox 360
It’s hard to capture in words the sheer wonderment that Rayman Legends brings to the small screen. Rayman Legends was built so that anyone can play it, with every aspect of platform gaming done so well that it’s impossible not to love it. It’s got beautifully drawn levels, hilarious situations, a truly fantastic original score, and – most importantly – brilliantly designed gameplay that challenges you without ever becoming repetitive. Did we mention that it’s an absolutely massive game with branching level design and oodles of unlockable content? Oh, and it’s got local co-op for up to four people, too. You’d better download this one while you can get it for free. Seriously.
In the first half of March Xbox 360 gamers get a fantastic title in Square Enix’s reboot of the Tomb Raider series. Experience the intense origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a young woman to a hardened survivor. Armed only with her raw instincts, Lara must fight to unravel the dark history of a forgotten island to escape its relentless hold. Apart from being tremendously fun, Tomb Raider is a beautiful game that features pulse-pounding combat, epic action sequences, environmental puzzles, and tombs to discover.
Finally, BioShock Infinite, one of the most award-winning games of all-time, is now free to Xbox 360 gamers in March. The game puts players into the shoes of U.S. Cavalry veteran turned hired gun, Booker DeWitt. Indebted to the wrong people and with his life on the line, DeWitt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He must rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia. Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape. Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities, as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all while surviving the threats of the air-city and uncovering its dark secret.
Check out the full details on our Games with Gold program, and make sure you get in on the action while you can!
* Titles are available as free downloads for a limited time, for qualifying paid Xbox Live Gold members in all markets where Xbox Live is available. Some regions may offer different titles depending on market availability. See Major Nelson’s blog for additional details.
