March's official free Games with Gold lineup announced for Xbox

Rayman Legends Screen 1

Rayman Legends, Tomb Raider, and Bioshock Infinite confirmed, along with double free games for April.

The leaked Games with Gold offerings for March the other day have been revealed to be correct. An official announcement from Xbox on Thursday mirrors the details leaked on NeoGaf just a day before.

From Sunday 1st March Xbox One owners will be able to download Rayman Legends for free throughout the entire month. We imagine last month's free game, #IDARB, will still be available through March too.

Xbox 360 owners can download Tomb Raider from Sunday 1st March until 15th March, and then BioShock Infinite takes over on 16th until the end of the month.

I would say this is probably one of the better free game offerings Microsoft have put up in the Games with Gold program. I'm yet to play Rayman Legends, but I hear nothing but good words about it. Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite are great games I have played, so I would recommend them to anyone to buy, but getting them for free is even better.

To round things off Microsoft have also confirmed that April's free games will be doubled up, as per the leak's claims a couple of days ago. There is no word on which games are being offered for April, but you can't really argue with extra free games in one month, can you?

The offer of extra free games is in celebration of Games with Gold users downloading over 100 million games through the program since it launched during E3 in 2013.

We'll give you a reminder on Sunday when the first free games are available, and keep our ears to the ground for what's coming in April.
