Borderlands 2 and Layers of Fear now free through Games with Gold

Now that March is officially here, Xbox's Games with Gold program has some new treats in store for Xbox Live subscribers. Starting today, Xbox Live Gold members can grab both Borderlands 2 and Layers of Fear for free.

Borderlands 2 is basically a classic must-play title at this point, offering up solid RPG shooter action with a heaping dose of goofiness as well. If you haven't picked up The Handsome Collection for Xbox One, then this is definitely worth grabbing while it's free. Layers of Fear, on the other hand, looks to offer some spooky scares as you roam the halls of a Victorian-era mansion.

Layers of Fear will be free through all of March, while Borderlands 2 is only set to stay free through March 15. Later on this month, you'll also be able to grab Evolve and Heavy Weapon.
