Free Games for Xbox Games with Gold March 2016
Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments
Xbox One — Available March 1
His skills, your wits: become Sherlock Holmes! Use your impressive talents as a detective to solve six thrilling and varied cases: murders, missing persons, spectacular thefts, and numerous investigations that sometimes lead you into the realms of the fantastic. The great freedom of action in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments allows you to conduct your investigations in the manner you deem appropriate. Choose the leads you wish to pursue, interrogate your suspects and, from your deductions, name the guilty parties… and determine their fate wisely, as surprising consequences may arise when you least expect them.
Lords of the Fallen
Xbox One — Available March 16
In the Time of the Ancients, the Worldly Realm was ruled by a God of pure evil who enslaved all humankind under his Dominion. But fear turned to anger as rebellion grew in the hearts of men — until the dawn of the Great Rising, when the fight for freedom began. After a glorious victory that cast aside the Fallen God, humans dictated a new order: a world where no sin can ever be forgiven and redemption was not an option. Now, millennia later, the world trembles in fear as the Demonic Rhogar Legion returns from their dark realm, driven by a foul hunger for innocent spirits. Humanity, in a desperate last act, calls upon an unlikely defender — a convicted sinner, rejected by society, and cast out of the light. A man known as Harkyn. Now, alongside his mentor Kaslo, they must travel to the source of the Darkness to face the Lords of the Fallen.
Plunge into a fast-paced RPG with a complex and satisfying melee combat system where weapons, armor, and skills directly influence the enemy’s speed and attacks. If all else fails, lay waste to your foes using forbidden magic power.
Supreme Commander 2
Xbox 360 — Available March 1
Supreme Commander 2 delivers real-time strategy on an epic scale. Take the role of three enigmatic commanders — former friends from each of the unique factions — as they are dragged into a conflict that could plunge the galaxy into another civil war. Command hundreds of land, air, and sea units in spectacular environments, upgrade your armies with new weapons and technologies, and deploy enormous experimental war machines that can change the balance of power at any moment.
Xbox 360 — Available March 16
With its addictive action, frantic first person shooter combat, massive arsenal of weaponry, RPG elements, and four player co-op, Borderlands is the breakthrough experience that challenges all the conventions of modern shooters. Borderlands places you in the role of a mercenary on the lawless and desolate planet of Pandora, hellbent on finding a legendary stockpile of powerful alien technology known as The Vault.
The Xbox One features cross-compatibility, so Xbox One gamers will have access to all of these games in March. Be sure to go grab February’s free games before it’s too late.
