Games with Gold and Playstation Plus for March 2019 Lineup
March 2019 brings new games to both Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus. Both services include a unique variety of games for both subscriptions.
On the Xbox front, there will be two main Xbox One games available: Adventure Time: Pirates of Enchridion (March 1st-31st) and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 (March 16th-April 15th). Adventure Time is a turn-based RPG set in the surreal landscape of the titular show. Finn and Jake will sail the seas while exploring many locations. If you are a fan of the show, you’d be glad to hear that many of the voice actors from the show reprise their characters in the game. Plants vs. Zombies is a goofy take on the modern shooter featuring the kooky characters from the aforementioned tower defense sensation. Despite the cutesy exterior, the game does play surprisingly well.
The two classic games available on Xbox are Star Wars: Republic Commando (March 1st-15th) and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (March 16th-March 31st). Republic Commando is a 2005 original Xbox game that fuses the gameplay of Ghost Recon with the Star Wars universe. Despite belonging to a high profile franchise, Republic Commando is considered a sleeper hit and hopefully being a Games with Gold title would mean more will get to experience it. Metal Gear Rising is a collaboration between Kojima Productions and Platinum Games starring the now cyborg ninja Raiden. Expect a lot of high speed action, crazy acrobatics, ludicrous moments and a lot of oil splattering everywhere.
This would be the first month of PlayStation Plus with only PS4 games available. There are only two games available through the entirety of March: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and The Witness. Modern Warfare is still arguably the best game in the whole franchise. It’s often credited as the game that made it into a multi-billion entertainment icon. The Witness is a first person puzzle game from the mind of Johnathan Blow of Braid fame. It features an island filled with mind bending puzzles that require a lot of thinking both in and outside of the box.
