Keeping the train moving along, March 24th is next expected to bring the gritty point-and-click thriller Norco as well as Formula 1 sports racer ​F1 2021 to players’ screens, via EA Play. Lastly, it appears Game Pass is saving the biggest for last, adding the inexplicable console port of expansive strategy title Crusader Kings 3 on March 29th, while the awaited supernatural cowboy RPG Weird West formally closes out this month’s selections on March 31st.


Of course, it wouldn’t be an Xbox Game Pass article without a list of games set to leave the service by the end of the month. March 2022 keeps the trend alive with the confirmed departures of years-old annual ​football sim Madden NFL 20, ​​retro-futuristic sword platformer Narita Boy, and violent run-and-gunner Shadow Warrior 2 on March 31st.
