Microsoft revealed today that the Games with Gold program is returning next month with another batch of four games for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members. As usual, March brings in two Xbox One games and two Xbox 360 games, with the latter two also being available to Xbox One owners thanks to native backward compatibility.
Here are the free Games with Gold titles announced today and their arrival dates:
Batman: The Enemy Within – The Complete Season (Xbox One, March 1 – 31)
Return to the streets of Gotham and punish the criminal element in Batman: The Enemy Within – The Complete Season. As both Batman and Bruce Wayne, you’ll need to navigate uneasy alliances while undertaking a perilous series of deceptions. With the return of the Riddler to terrorize the city, and an even larger threat on the horizon, how deep into the darkness will Batman descend?
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero (Xbox One, March 16 – April 15)
There’s a mysterious crime spree sweeping Sequin Land, and only Shantae can save the day! In this beautifully rendered 2-D platformer, send monsters flying using Shantae’s devastating Hair-Whip Attack or transform into powerful creatures using her magical Belly Dance. Defeat the masterminds behind each caper and faceoff against her ultimate nemesis, the bodacious buccaneer Risky Boots!
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 (Xbox 360, March 1 – 15)
Dracula returns once again in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. Weakened and yearning for release after centuries of sleep, help Dracula return to his famous castle to regain his old powers to defeat Satan. Taking place in both medieval and modern times, the final dramatic showdown between good and evil begins, in this epic open-world adventure.
Sonic Generations (Xbox 360, March 16 – 31)
Sonic’s universe is thrown into chaos in Sonic Generations. Thrown back in time by a mysterious new power, interact with some very familiar characters from the past including a younger version of himself! With this thrilling team-up, save their friends, defeat their enemies and discover who is behind this diabolical deed.
Of course, we haven't reached the end of February yet, so you've still got time to claim those games. Until the end of the month, you can grab TT Isle of Man (Xbox One) and Star Wars Battlefront (Xbox), and you can claim Call of Cthulhu (Xbox One) until March 15.
