Xbox Live Games with Gold March 2016 offers Borderlands Free

Xbox Games with Gold digs into the past this month with two Xbox One games from 2014 including Crimes & Punishments and Lords of the Fallen.  As we spring into March however most people will probably see the biggest value in grabbing Borderlands for Xbox 360 which of course now is Backward Compatible on Xbox One.  The early month Xbox 360 game is Supreme Commander 2 which looks to be a Starcraft style strategy game.  There are still many great older Xbox One games out there that have not been offered up yet on Games with Gold so this months offerings are a little disappointing.  Seeing games like Supreme Commander 2 gives me concerns that Microsoft is running into limitations on what they can offer for the Xbox 360 game now that they all must be backwards compatible.

Nonetheless I’m not one to complain much about getting FREE games, check out the information below on when you can pickup this months games.

On Xbox One, Xbox Live Gold members can download Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishment($29.99 ERP) for free during the month of March. Lords of the Fallen ($39.99 ERP) will be available as a free download from March 16th to April 15th.

Keep in mind that all Xbox Games with Gold on Xbox 360 since November are available through backwards compatibility on Xbox One as will all future Games with Gold.

If you’re an Xbox Gold Member make sure to get the most out of your subscription every month with up to 4 Free games a month.  Xbox One games are yours as long as you keep your Gold membership active but Xbox 360 games are yours to keep even if you cancel your Gold membership, but really for $60 a year there’s no better value anywhere.
