Every once in a while you need to get away from the garbage life throws at you. During those moments, it is best to stay calm and do something you love in order to take your mind off of those troublesome worries. Like last year, Microsoft will be given away a Borderlands game to Xbox Life Gold members through the Games with Gold program.

Layers of Fear may give Resident Evil 7 a run for its money as the most player horror game on Xbox One for the month of March.
On March 16th, Xbox Live Gold members can download Evolve Ultimate Edition for Xbox One and either work down together to hunt down the big bad monster or kill the hopes and dreams of the four hunters while preventing yourself from becoming a hunter’s trophy.

Borderlands 2 will become free to Gold members starting on March 1st and will be free until March 16th. Shoot psychotic badasses with a plethora of weapons in order to save pandora. Although Borderlands 2 may be free for the first half of March, the DLC will not be.

Starting on March 16th, Gold members can download Heavy Weapon and shoot their way through the side-scrolling levels. What enemy do you think will hold you up and what levels do you feel you will clear with ease. Heavy Weapon will be free until March 31st. Heavy Weapon brings back the old retro feeling of old 80’s and 90’s arcade games.
