It is now a ritual at the end of each month: the mysterious insider billbil-kun from Dealabs once again leaks the monthly selection of games “free” with the Xbox Live Gold ahead of Microsoft’s official announcement. As always, four games are on the program for next March; two Xbox One games and two Xbox 360 games… So if these last few months have served us with some welcome nuggets, especially in terms of backward compatible titles, we cannot say that next month will be a great vintage for subscribers to the service.
So here are, in advance, the “free” games of Xbox Live Gold for the month of March 2022:
- The Flame and the Flood : From March 1 to 31, 2022
- Street Power Soccer : From March 16 to April 15, 2022
- Sacred 2 Fallen Angel : From March 1 to 15, 2022
- Spongebob: Truth or Square : From March 16 to 31, 2022
The storm is coming to Games With Gold
After a successful Kickstarter campaign, The Molasses Flood studio was able to release its first game The Flame and the Flood in 2016. Because indie developers are particularly fond of permadeath, The Flame and the Flood is a roguelike set in a dystopian America submerged under water. It will take a sense of survival and a solid improvised raft mastery to survive alongside Scout, the only canine companion.
In a completely different genre, Street Power Soccer wants to be the spiritual successor of a certain street football game so the name starts with “Fifa” and ends with “Street”. If the title of SFL Interactive benefits from the presence of real street football players like Soufiane Bencok or Liv Cooke, it will have had a hard time convincing the public, demanding a worthy successor to EA’s hit, when it was released in 2020.
As for the Xbox 360 titles, we move the time of a sequel in Germany with Sacred 2 Fallen Angel, action-RPG from German studio Ascaron. This prequel has Sacred offers two different campaigns: that of Darkness and Light. The hack’n’slash was originally released in 2008 (!) on the Microsoft console, and as much to say that it does not make us any younger. At last, Spongebob: Truth or Square look no further than the usual throes of late 2000s licensed gaming.
