Xbox Live Gold Free Games
« on: June 21, 2013, 02:41:48 PM »

Microsoft announced back at E3 that they'd be releasing two free games a month until the end of the year. At the conference the only two titles announced under this plan were Assassin's Creed II and Halo 3, (Fable III was said to be the launching freebie earlier this month and should be still available for free right now).

A few weeks later now and Microsoft have announced how the releases will work.

As per [Joystiq]:
Quote
Microsoft pinned monthly dates to its Games With Gold promotion, with the Xbox Live Gold freebies due on the 1st of 16th of each month. As revealed during Microsoft's E3 press conference, Gold subscribers gain access to two free Xbox 360 games each month until the end of the year. Fable 3 was the first offering, with Halo 3 and Assassin's Creed 2 already announced as July's dynamic duo.

 "As our way of saying thanks for being part of this community, we're giving all qualifying Gold members two free Xbox 360 games each month for the rest of the year." reads the promotion's site. "Each specially selected, fan-favorite game will be available to download only for a limited time, so grab them before they're gone and keep them no matter what."

So far I'm 2/3 - I haven't played Fable III or Halo 3. Yeah, I know, pretty blasphemous... :P

Halo 3 and Assassins Creed 2... only played both of those for about an hour each before I got bored, but if they're free I'll give them another go. Shame I'd already got Fable III


Thank god for the new Tomb Raider, helped me de-stress after a tough week! More of the same please

Cool! Thanks. Makes more sense that way too, for those looking for past GWG offerings.

Happy with Darksiders II, rented it recently but only got about halfway through before sending it back, now I can finish it, Bad Company 2 is awesome too, the multiplayer will no doubt pick up again now.   :)
