Every month, Xbox Live Gold subscribers get treated to a bunch of free games as part of their subscription and Microsoft has now revealed the Xbox Games with Gold lineup for March 27. There are a couple of good titles included in next month’s lineup for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Since the Xbox 360 titles are backwards compatible, they are also playable on the Xbox One, so owners of the current-generation console get more bang for their buck.
The first-person psychedelic horror game Layers of Fear Read goes free for Xbox One as part of next month’s Xbox Games with Gold lineup. Evolve Ultimate Edition, the “Game of Show” at E3 2014 is also free for the current-generation console. Borderlands 2 and action arcade game Heavy Weapon are both free for the Xbox 360 and since they are backwards compatible, they will be available on the Xbox One as well.
Xbox One owners will be able to download Layers of Fear free from March 1-31 while Evolve Ultimate Edition will be free from March 16-April 15. Borderlands 2 will be free starting March 1st through March 15th while Heavy Weapon will be available to Xbox Live Gold subscribers on Xbox One and Xbox 360 from March 16th to March 31st.
Remember, you need an Xbox Live Gold subscription to play these games for free. Once you’ve downloaded them, you can keep them for as long as you want.
