Games With Gold (March 2021): Last Chance To Grab This Month's Free Games

Warface: Breakout and more are free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers in March.


It's the end of March, and that means it's your last chance to claim March's free Games with Gold titles. Metal Slug 3's free period has ended, but the month's three other games are still available. Warface: Breakout, VALA: Vicious Attack Llama Apocalypse, and Port Royale 3 can still be claimed, though you don't have long for Warface or Port Royale 3. Both leave Games with Gold once April starts, while VALA sticks around until April 15.

Warface: Breakout is a tactical first-person shooter that released last year. It's a spin-off of the MMO Warface based on the Planet the Bomb game mode. The squad-based FPS doesn't have a ton of content yet, but if you're a fan of the genre it may be worth checking out. Warface: Breakout is free all throughout March.

The other Xbox One freebie is certainly a silly game, and that's not all too surprising given its name. VALA: Vicious Attack Llama Apocalypse is a top-down mech shooter in which llamas have caused the apocalypse. It features local co-op for up to four players and has a roguelike loop. Each run is different, but yes, llamas stand in your way every time you suit up. Vicious Attack Llama Apocalypse will be free from March 16 to April 15.

The pair of backwards-compatible Xbox 360 freebies are arguably stronger than the Xbox One titles this month. SNK's classic run-and-gun Metal Slug 3 is no longer available, but you can still claim Port Royale 3 for the next couple of days.

  • Warface: Breakout: March 1-31
  • VALA: Vicious Attack Llama Apocalypse: March 16-April 15
  • Metal Slug 3: March 1-15
  • Port Royale 3: March 16-31
