First free Games with Gold for March now available to download

Don't forget to grab your free copies of Rayman Legends and Tombraider on Xbox One and Xbox 360 this month.

First the games lineup was leaked, then it was confirmed, and now March's first games are available to download from today on Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Xbox One owners can download Ubisoft's Rayman Legends throughout March, along with last month's free game - #IDARB.

Rayman Legends was originally released on consoles and PC back in 2013, and the Xbox One version came along just over a year ago in 2014. The game is a colourful 2D side-scroller with 4-player co-op support that tasks players with working their way through various levels to rescue the Teensies, and collect many items along the way. I've put the trailer for Rayman Legends below to give you an idea of what you're getting into.

If you're rocking an Xbox 360 then you'll be able to download Tomb Raider for free from today through to 15th March. I'm sure I've recommended this game many times before, but I can't stress enough how good this game is, and you're getting it for free, so lap it up.

Tomb Raider is Crystal Dynamics' 2013 reboot of the series, which takes players back to Lara Croft's origins, before she was the heroic, athletic archaeologist we know from the original games. It's a much grittier game than any of the previous iterations, but I think most people will enjoy it. Take a look a the trailer below.

On 16th March Xbox 360 owners will be able to download this month's second free game, Bioshock Infinite. We'll remind you when it becomes available at the time. Oh, and Microsoft also said that in April there will be double the free games up for grabs, so we'll let you know when those games are announced too.

Remember, you need to have an Xbox Live Gold membership to be eligible for Games with Gold, so if you're all set with that, you can go ahead and download you free games.
