March's Free Xbox Live Gold Games Revealed: More Metal Gear and Star Wars

March's Free Xbox Live Gold Games Revealed: More Metal Gear and Star Wars

Metal Gear Rising and Star Wars Republic Commando headline February's Games With Gold.

March is almost upon us, which means Xbox's Games With Gold is getting a new lineup of free games. This month Xbox players can expect to see titles like a classic Star Wars game and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

For a limited time, Xbox owners who are subscribed to Xbox Live Gold can redeem specific games for free during the month of March. Unlike PS Plus, some games are only available to download for a limited time, so check the schedule below to make sure you don't miss out on a free game you might want.

  • Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion – March 1-11
  • Plants vs Zombies GW2 – March 16-April 15
  • Star Wars: Republic Commando – March 1-15
  • Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance – March 16-31

Xbox is seemingly on something of a Star Wars kick as it offered Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy as a free game for February. Now in March Xbox is bringing back the Clone Trooper spinoff, Republic Commando which was originally released on the Xbox back in 2005.

You still have time to download two of February's free Xbox Games With Gold titles including, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon and Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.
