A polygonal face is shot apart in Superhot.

February has shot past in the blink of an eye with March looming just around the corner. For folks who subscribe to Xbox Live's premium service, that means there's a whole new roster of Games with Gold to get excited for, including one game which is...super hot? Go with me on this.

Once March gets up and running, Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners will have a set of four fresh games to add to their digital collection. The March lineup kicks off with Superhot, alongside Trials of the Blood Dragon, Brave and Quantum Conundrum. Of course, that means that if you haven't picked up February's collection of games including Shadow Warrior, Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India, Split/Second and Crazy Taxi, you better get a move on.

When March 1 rolls around, Xbox One gamers will be able to pick up Trials of the Blood Dragon through Games with Gold. Set in the same world as the Far Cry spin-off, players will trade in their guns and FPS view for a series of speedrunning motorcycle missions that have you performing stunts and sprinting across exotic locales. If you ever wondered what it would look like if the Trials series got together with a 1970s grindhouse action flick and had a baby, you need look no further.

That's all well and good, but the March standout for many folks is going to be Superhot, which joins the collection from March 16 to April 15. Don't let this game's simplistic visuals fool you. It's a tough-as-nails and hugely satisfying FPS puzzler that has the player making their way through intense firefights where the world only moves when you're in motion.

The Xbox 360 collection features a similar staggered launch with Brave: The Video Game, hitting Gold from March 1-15. It's not too often we get a Disney title in these monthly subscription libraries, so that alone makes it worth checking out. Also up for grabs is the woefully overlooked Quantum Conundrum, which takes a lot of the things folks love about the Portal series and does all sorts of interesting things with the formula. It'll be available from March 16-31 on the Xbox 360.

As a reminder, Xbox One now has backwards compatibility with any and all games coming to the Gold lineup so, if you're gaming on Microsoft's current-gen console, you can have all four of those games instead of just two.

If nothing else, the month certainly offers a nice bit of variety. Whether you're into tricky racers, colorful adventures or first-person puzzlers, the March Games with Gold library has you covered. Let us know what you think of the upcoming lineup in the comments section below. Also, is there anything from the February library folks should make sure they grab before it's gone?
