It's that time again! Microsoft just unveiled next month's Xbox Live Games With Gold lineup, and it's fantastic. We got this reveal way sooner than we had anticipated, but then, March does actually begin next week (believe it or not). As usual, there will be a few games available as soon as March 1 rolls around, and then a pair of games will join the lineup midway through the month.
If you don't have a current subscription to Xbox Live, by the way, it's currently on sale for super cheap. You can score three months of Xbox Live Gold for only $15 right here.
This month the big headliners for Xbox One are Trials of the Blood Dragon and Superhot, both of which are fantastic titles. Superhot particularly is a fantastic game, and after you play it, you'll understand exactly why everyone touts the game as the best example of how fun virtual reality can be. Play it, love it, then try it in VR if you can!
At any rate, we'll kick things off with your full Xbox One lineup below, and then continue with your Xbox 360 backward compatible titles. We'll include brief descriptions of each game from the Xbox Wire! Keep scrolling to see them all.
