First Wave Of Xbox Game Pass March Titles Announced

Get ready to rock and rumble with Game Pass this month.


Xbox has announced the first wave of titles coming to Game Pass in March, with the list including a fighting game heavyweight, classic strategy, and an RPG with a Studio Ghibli influence to its visual design.

Guilty Gear Strive, the most recent entry in the long-running Arc System Works fighting game series, will be available from today on Xbox consoles, PC, and cloud-compatible devices. Featuring a rich roster of heavy metal brawlers and stunning Unreal Engine visuals, this Guilty Gear is also one of the more approachable games in the series and looks great in action.

On March 9, Dead Space fans can dive back into EA's survival-horror series when Dead Space 2 and 3 are available to play through Xbox cloud gaming via EA Play on March 9. The release of Dead Space remake this year has reignited interest in the terrifying series, so if you're looking to explore space stations and alien planets infested by Necromorphs, you'll be able to easily do so while you're on the move.

Valheim, the brutal exploration and survival game set in a world inspired by Norse mythology, will be available in Game Preview mode on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One from March 14, and the historical strategy game Civilization VI will be available from March 16 for console, PC, and cloud. Lastly, RPG fans can experience Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom on console and PC from March 21. This version of the beloved fantasy game is the Prince's Edition, which includes all of the DLC that was released after Ni no Kuni II originally launched in 2018.

Game Pass subscribers can also look forward to a few updates this week for titles available through the service. The Fractal Update for No Man's Sky, Mutant Invasion for Fallout 76, and Season 3: Echoes for Halo Infinite are all now available. As usual, several games will be leaving Game Pass to make room for the new arrivals, and you can say goodbye to Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, Paradise Zero, and more on March 15.
