Xbox Live – Games With Gold

Games With Gold subscribers are going to get more than their daily dose of video game medicine as Microsoft announced a total of five free games to be available this June. Xbox 360 players will be enjoying titles such as Dark Souls, Charlie Murder, and a bonus game called Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition. There are two free games for Xbox One owners to download including Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Halo: Spartan Assault.

Microsoft?s online game delivery platform, the Xbox Live, launched the Games With Gold service which allows paying subscribers to enjoy a number of free games every month. This promo has been started in the previous year for the Xbox 360 and will provide the same service for Xbox One owners starting this June upon registration. Subscribers will need to pay $ 5 every month for a 12-month subscription period. In return, they will be able to download one game for free twice a month.

The first game to be released for Xbox 360 Games With Gold subscribers will be Dark Souls. It?s going to be up for download from June 1 up to June 15. Dark Souls is an action RPG game released in 2011 with an original price of $ 19.99. The second game, available from June 16 until June 30, is Charlie Murder. Typically priced at $ 9.99, it is a side scrolling game where players need to control the titular punk rock band to rival a death metal band called Gore Quaffer and its evil followers.

For its initial offering to Xbox One Games With Gold subscribers, a recently released game called Max: The Curse of Brotherhood will be downloadable during the first half of June. This action-adventure strategy game was out this past December and carries a price tag of $ 14.99 if sold separately. For the second half of June, Xbox One subscribers are going to have their free time occupied as they are entitled to download Halo: Spartan Assault for free. This is a top-down shooter game in which players are able to control their Spartans and battle with enemies.

For the month of June, Xbox Live added a bonus game for the Xbox 360 subscribers of Games With Gold. The third game will be Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition and is slated to be offered during the latter half of June.

The Games With Gold program works a little differently for subscribers of the two consoles. Xbox One subscribers will only have access to the games they downloaded through the program as long as they are Xbox Live Gold members. For those with Xbox 360, the policy will be the same ? they can continue to play their games even after dropping their membership.
