New Xbox Game Pass additions for the second of March have been announced by Xbox. The first half of the month saw Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy hit the service, and now we’ve got even more titles hitting Game Pass in the latter half of March.
This includes Crusader Kings 3 making its way over from PC Game Pass, as it will now be available for Xbox console users as well from March 29. There’s also F1 2021, Shredders, Tainted Grail: Conquest, and much more. Here’s everything on Xbox Game Pass this month.
Crusader Kings 3 on Xbox Series X|S from March 29
Given a ‘masterpiece’ 10/10 review when it was first released for PC in 2020, Crusader Kings 3 will now be available for some Game Pass consoles users, alongside those already playing on PC Game Pass. Unfortunately, those on Xbox One will be unable to play the game via Game Pass, as when it hits the service on March 29, it will be limited to just Xbox Series X|S on March 29.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is on Xbox Game Pass This Month
Guardians of the Galaxy earned some decent reviews during its launch period, and we even gave it an 8/10 in our review: “A fun, no-frills single-player campaign full of cosmic comic book flavor.” Developed by Eidos Montreal, Guardians of the Galaxy came out quite recently during the tail-end of 2021, and will be available for cloud, console, and PC Game Pass from March 10.
