Free Xbox One/360 Games With Gold For March 2017 Revealed

Evolve headlines March's four new freebies.


With March drawing near, Microsoft has announced the lineup of free games that Xbox Live Gold members will be able to download beginning next week.

On Xbox One, the month starts out with Layers of Fear, which only released just last week. Later in the month, it will be joined by co-op shooter Evolve, which was developed by Turtle Rock, the studio behind Left 4 Dead. Evolve was turned into a free-to-play game on PC last year and was potentially going to see the same change on consoles, but Turtle Rock has since ceased work on the game.
