With the end of February getting closer, Microsoft is set to reveal its plans for Games with Gold March 2021.
A total of four free Xbox games are expected to be announced this week, with the first of these titles arriving on March 1.
That means Microsoft has little over a month to reveals its Games with Gold plans before they are set to arrive and become available to download.
As many Xbox console owners will already know, these free games can be claimed by having an Xbox Live Gold subscription, or by having Xbox Game Pass.
The big difference between these two services is the price and game selection that is provided by Microsoft.
Xbox Live Gold provides multiplayer access to non-free games, a collection of free games each month, and access to a selection of discounts.
Meanwhile, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate does most of this while also providing a library of digital games to download and play, as well as access to Project xCloud streaming on Android phones.
The Xbox Game Pass library changes from month-to-month, with Microsoft regularly adding and taking away games.
So while both sets of subscribers will get access to the new Games with Gold titles for March, Xbox Game Pass fans can look forward to a few extra.
However, this month will also the tech giant drop a number of games from the console library, and this will happen before the new Games with Gold titles go live.
As of right now, we know that The Jackbox Party Pack 4, Vambrace: Cold Soul, and Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight are all disappearing on February 28.
The good news is that we know what games will be taking their place, with three new games recently announced for Xbox Game Pass.
This includes the following titles, which can be found listed below:
