Xbox Game Pass will be getting Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy this March

Xbox Game Pass subscribers will be getting one of the more underrated games of 2021 as a freebie this March.


It's been a while since the Xbox Game Pass made headlines with new additions. After welcoming Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Rainbow Six Extraction, and Hitman Trilogy in January, February was a relatively quiet month.

Eidos-Montreal gave audiences a genuinely good game back in 2021 with Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.

Although March doesn't appear to be as "loud" as January and previous months for the Game Pass, it's still set to bring in two of 2021's best games in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and Lawn Mowing Simulator.

The latter is self-explanatory - it's just you mowing lawns in the game. Make no mistake, this mundane task comes with its own set of challenges. More importantly, it will make you realize just how relaxing something as "simple" as mowing lawns can be. Of course, the main highlight has to be Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which Square Enix described as a disappointment back in February.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is further proof that not every game has to be multiplayer to be great.

The Eidos-Montreal title, which debuted last October, didn't make waves at launch but critic reviews, word of mouth, and getting an award at The Game Awards 2021 all helped the sales figures of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy pick up in succeeding months.

In addition to Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and Lawn Mowing Simulator, the Game Pass is getting a handful of other titles as well, including:

  • Far: Changing Tides (Cloud and Console) - March 1
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator (Cloud - March 1
  • Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 (Cloud, Console, and PC) - March 3
  • Kentucky Route Zero (Cloud, Console, and PC) - March 10
  • Lawn Mowing Simulator (Xbox One) March 10
  • Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy (Cloud, Console, and PC) - March 10
  • Young Souls (Cloud, Console, and PC) - March 10

Of course, as is tradition, the Game Pass will be saying goodbye to several titles on March 15 as well:

  • NieR: Automata (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Phogs! (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Torchlight 3 (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • The Surge 2 (Cloud, Console, and PC)

After spending all of 2021 firmly establishing itself as the de-facto subscription-based gaming service today, you can't blame Game Pass for resting on its laurels a bit this year. Make no mistake though, there's more coming. Microsoft is bound to add more games to the Game Pass after acquiring Activision-Blizzard earlier this year. We'd also like to think that seeing Sony's solid March PS Plus games lineup must have lit a fire under Microsoft.

Lawn Mowing Simulator is an oddly relaxing game that you can just tune out to without worrying about losing a limb or two.
