March's new Xbox Game Pass titles are now available [Updated]

Updated March 1, 2018: March's Game Pass titles, with the exception of Sea of Thieves, are now available to play for subscribers.

Microsoft has taken the wraps off of the next batch of games (opens in new tab) headed to Xbox Game Pass subscribers. Starting in March, the subscription service will add eight more Xbox games to its lineup, including Sea of Thieves, Super Lucky's Tale, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and more.

Here's a look at all of what's coming in March:

  • Sea of Thieves
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Super Lucky's Tale
  • Resident Evil Revelation 2
  • Oxenfree
  • Sonic CD
  • The Final Station
  • Euro Fishing

Rise of the Tomb Raider, the followup to 2013's Tomb Raider, was already teased as one of March's titles, and it's among the headliners. Sea of Thieves is likely to be a pretty big draw as well following its launch on March 20. The pirate adventure is launching to Xbox Game Pass on day one as part of Microsoft's effort to bring all Microsoft Studios games to the subscription service permanently.

Each of next month's titles, save Sea of Thieves, will be available via Xbox Game Pass on March 1. They'll join a growing lineup of more than 100 titles that includes heavy hitters like the Gears of War series, Resident Evil, Halo, and many more. The service costs $9.99 per month (opens in new tab) and new subscribers can check it out for free for 14 days.

  • If MS can release a big AAA game like ROTR, in addition to their exclusives, to Game Pass (GP) monthly then it's a great deal.  Many of these big games I don't get the time (or money) to play around launch.  It's great to be able to go back and play them again for a lower cost like a GP subscription. Hopefully this continues, and we continue to see great games like ROTR added consistently. 
  • This is great. I had zero plans to buy super lucky tail, now I'll be playing it. Also resident evil. I signed up last month after the AAA Microsoft Studio announcement, and so far so good.
  • Just curious, will Forzas be available via game pass too at some point? Or does the "all first party games" mean only new ones?
  • I suppose all games will eventually end up there, there's no reason not to. But if you are impatient...
  • I'll tell you right away, i do not enjoy playing a Halo Wars 2 without its extensions, and i hope it's the same for you
  • Sea of Thieves playable now? Surely we have to wait until launch?
  • Between this and Superhot on Games with Gold, it's going to be a good month.
