Games with Gold is a program in which digital downloads of games are offered at no charge to Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Games with Gold launched for Xbox 360 in July 2013, while Xbox One games were added in June 2014. Xbox 360 receives a game twice per month, while Xbox One receives two games once per month. Games downloaded through the program on Xbox 360 are free to own with no further restrictions. Xbox One Games with Gold titles require active Xbox Live Gold subscription in order to use, and become locked and unplayable if the subscription lapses. As of November 2015, all Games with Gold titles for Xbox 360 are backwards compatible on Xbox One.
April's GWG features two easy to complete games in the form of The Witness and Cars 2. Considering that I've been eying off a few of the later Assassin's Creed games, AC: Syndicate being in the later half of the month may have twisted my arm to purchase AC: Unity (currently for sale this week in the Fall Sale). Overall I think that this is a decent GWG line up for April.
It's the middle of the month and once again, the Xbox Games with Gold is switching it up by changing what free games users can download this month. Xbox Live Gold members will no longer be able to download Outlast on Xbox One and The Cave on Xbox 360 today.
Microsoft has just announced the games that will be free with Games with Gold in January; anyone who doesn't have a subscription can currently purchase it for only $1 for the first month making this a good time to pick up a subscription.
Microsoft has announced the next group of free games for Xbox Games with Gold and these are definitely some games to get excited about, especially for gamers who didn't partake in buying more games on Black Friday.
Microsoft is starting Black Friday a full week early this year and the company has just released a special trailer to commemorate the massive sale event which includes over 250 game deals. The Xbox Store Black Friday sale starts on November 18th and will be ending on the 28th, several days after the real Black Friday which takes place on the 25th.
Xbox gamers have until midnight to add some new games to their library; the Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles both have one game free for all users with a subscription to Games with Gold. As always, news games will be added tomorrow for players to download and other free games are also currently available.
