Evolve: Ultimate Edition (Games With Gold)
Evolve has had a pretty rough time since its original launch, but hey, it’s one of the free games available for Xbox One owners this month, meaning that you can enjoy it at no cost. Evolve is a fun co-operative shooter where four players must band together to take down a gigantic monster in the world of Shear. For the humans, the trick is to hunt down the monster as quickly as possible. If the monster ends up consuming too much wildlife, it’ll evolve and become even harder for you to kill.
Evolve is one of the free games you can get this March.
