Here are Microsoft’s official descriptions of all four March Games With Gold titles:

Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion

Take to the high seas in Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion. Help our heroes Finn, Jake, Marceline, and BMO discover why the Land of Ooo is underwater. Explore by land and sea, fight pirates, and search for hidden clues to solve the mystery and save their drenched world!

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2

Prepare for all-out battle in Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2. Dr. Zomboss has strengthened his zombie army, but the plants are on the offensive to reclaim their turf!  Choose either side in 24-player multiplayer, 4-player co-op modes or go at it solo. The battle for suburbia begins now!

Star Wars: Republic Commando

Chaos has erupted across the galaxy and it is your duty to combat it in Star Wars: Republic Commando. Set during the events of the Clone Wars, as leader of an elite squad you’ll need to infiltrate, dominate, and annihilate your enemy. Your unit will follow your every command and act as a team to destroy the Separatist forces. You are the leader; they are your weapon.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

The renowned Metal Gear franchise goes an exciting direction in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Focusing on pure-action and epic storytelling, play as cyber-ninja Raiden, a child soldier transformed into half-man, half-machine. Slice and dice your cyborg enemies and take on a worldwide conspiracy with a high-frequency katana blade and a soul fueled by revenge.

Star Wars: Republic Commando will be available from March 1 to 15, Metal Gear Rising and Garden Warfare 2 will be available on March 16, and Adventure Time can be downloaded all month long. As always, once you download a Games With Gold title, you’ll have permanent access to it, so long as you still have an active Xbox Live Gold membership.

Not a blockbuster month, but Metal Gear Rising is definitely worth your time. What do you think? Any of this month’s Games With Gold strike your fancy?
