March’s free Xbox Games with Gold revealed

The free Xbox Games with Gold for March 2022 have been revealed, with four free being handed out to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live Gold subscribers over the course of the month. It’s the same story as usual, with a selection of games that can get you through the shortest month on the calendar.

What are March 2022’s Xbox Games with Gold?

The four games are the usual mixture of two Xbox One titles and two Xbox or Xbox 360 games that can be played via backward compatibility. Everything is obviously playable on Xbox Series X|S as well. The four games will be made available at different points through the month, as follows:


So, do March’s Games with Gold add up to a good month for subscribers, or will they disappoint?

Originally releasing for PC and Xbox in 2016, we reviewed Flame in the Flood when its Complete Edition landed on PlayStation 4. We said in our 8/10 review:

“The Flame In The Flood is a remarkably well crafted entry in the survival genre that sets itself apart with compelling gameplay, an intriguing setting, and a stellar soundtrack. Having released on computer and Xbox One last year, its arrival on PlayStation 4 with the Complete Edition will hopefully see it find a new audience to entice on a beautiful, and bleak, journey down the river.”

We have to dig back to 2009 to find a review of Sacred 2, which we awarded a 6/10

“The game looks nice and as a hack ‘n slash adventure in single player is a great experience. Take it online or register another pad to the console, and the fun to be had in multiplayer is plentiful. The looting and levelling up provides that addiction to grinding through hordes of creatures, and trading with friends online is genius.”

Alas, at that time the game was rather buggy. Hopefully it’s a touch better now/

Can I still download the February 2022 Games with Gold Games?

Yes! You’ve still got the weekend to grab most of last month’s games. Due to Microsoft’s staggered freebies, Hydrophobia has already exited the service, but the the other three games are still available until the end of this month or into the middle of March.
