Layers of Fear and Evolve lead March’s Games With Gold
This March, Xbox wants you to run for your life.
Last month's Games With Gold brought us some cutesy couch-based multiplayer with Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime and some serious simulation with Project Cars. Both admirable entries for different reasons but this month it seems Xbox has the single goal of making you wet your pants with spooky first-person horror Layers of Fear and monster hunting multi-slayer Evolve heading to Xbox One for March's Games with Gold lineup.
Note: You need to purchase an Xbox Live Gold membership to access free Games With Gold.

Layers of Fear is a psychological horror that puts the player in the shoes of a troubled artist. The player navigates an old mansion (classic) while slowly unravelling the artist's disturbing story and coming face to face with some personal demons.
Evolve is a criminally underloved online multiplayer where four players team up to hunt and track one monster that's controlled by a fifth player. The 4v1 dynamic and the game's trapping gameplay sold crowds when exhibited and trade shows and the like. However, a lack of launch content and single player modes relegated this first-person shooter to the dark and dusty corner of the entertainment unit.
