Summer is over! Celebrate (or mourn, I don’t know your life) the passage of time with these free games for PS Plus, Xbox Live, Humble, Epic and Twitch subscribers for March.
- Shadow of the Colossus
The 2018 remake of the much beloved PS2 title. According to our review: “A game that once had ambition beyond the capabilities of the hardware it ran on can now finally spread its wings with graphical advancements”.
- Sonic Forces
When we reviewed Sonic Forces, we said the game has thrilling boss fights and visuals, but may not be what fans of classic Sonic were expecting. Find out for yourself, it’s free!

- Batman: The Enemy Within – The Telltale Series (available 1 Mar – 31 Mar)
The second season of Telltale’s take on the Dark Knight. Let’s see how he struggles with the deaths of his parents this time.
- Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 (available 1 Mar – 15 Mar)
The final game in the experimental Lords of Shadow trilogy. Konami recently released a more classic Castlevania title for mobile, so there’s a few different way this vampire series could take your fancy.

- Whispers of a Machine
A point-and-click detective game where you need to solve murders in a world of AIs and cybernetics. Published by Raw Fury, who also brought you GoNNER.
A fast-paced action puzzle game about saving the world from aliens. The physics system looks chaotic AF.
Vibrant hack and slash action game with bullet hell elements. Notably, the entire game is a series of boss fights. The game cuts right to the chase, so you can do some cutting of your own.
- Epistory – Typing Chronicles
A delightful game played by typing various words that appear on screen. A good way to get your touch typing reps in, and explore a beautiful world in the process.
And those are your free games for March! Let us know which ones you’re looking forward to getting your hands on! If it’s Sonic Forces, let us know why! Because we don’t get it.
