7 new titles confirmed for Xbox Game Pass in March


Gamers will benefit from the addition of several headline titles to Xbox Game Pass for March 2024.

The new arrivals will include Warhammer 40,000 Boltgun, SpongeBob SquarePants, and MLB The Show 24, reflecting the range of genres to be enhanced on the Xbox service.

As confirmed by Microsoft, the first wave of new games brings seven newcomers to the platform with the potential for more to follow.

Warhammer 40,000 Boltgun is the latest in the first-person shooter series with IGN’s review concluding:

“Retro-shooting and fast-paced arenas suit the Warhammer 40K setting nicely, but Boltgun falls short of greatness because its ideas peter out too quickly. Some good level design and nice environments make up for a lack of variety.”

The next wave of Xbox Game Pass games is absolutely STACKED!

-Warhammer 40K Boltgun (I’ve been wanting to try this!)
-Control Ultimate Edition
-SpongeBob BFBB Rehydrated
-Lightyear Frontier (day 1!)
-MLB The Show 24 (day 1!)

Maybe XGP’s best “wave” ever?

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated is a full remake of the classic for Xbox in which you can play as SpongeBob, Patrick, or Sandy to disrupt Plankton’s dastardly plan to take over Bikini Bottom.

Another notable addition is Control Ultimate Edition, with the Remedy Entertainment release presented by Microsoft as a “supernatural third-person action-adventure” to challenge your skills as you battle through a deep and unpredictable world.

How does Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass work?

Xbox Game Pass provides gamers with a diverse game library accessible across Xbox consoles, PCs, and compatible devices.

Subscribers enjoy a constantly refreshed selection of AAA and indie titles, making it a versatile gaming solution. This subscription model has revolutionized the gaming industry, offering a cost-effective and flexible way for players to access a wide range of gaming experiences without needing to buy individual titles.

It’s not without drawbacks, however. The rotating library, which sees games removed or added sporadically, is not for everyone, and this lack of ownership may be a concern for those who prefer to have a permanent collection.
