This June you will see not just the normal two games appear on Games with Gold, but five! As a lot of you will be aware Phil Spencer (Head of Xbox) recently announced, June’s system update will debut Games with Gold on Xbox One. X1 users will be starting with two great games – “Max: The Curse of Brotherhood” and “Halo: Spartan Assault.” Whilst over on the Xbox 360, members will receive “Dark Souls,” “Charlie Murder” and the bonus game “Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.” No matter what, you’re in for a good time so make sure you get in on the action!
XboxOne (Dates to be confirmed for release)
Press Play’s beautiful side-scrolling platformer “Max: The Curse of Brotherhood.” As Max, you’ll need to rescue your little brother from the clutches of a cartoonish villain named Mustacho. Along the way, you’ll solve challenging elemental puzzles and platform your way through the environment with the help of your trusty magic marker.
“Halo: Spartan Assault,” a new chapter within the award-winning “Halo” universe set between “Halo 3” and “Halo 4.” Join Commander Sarah Palmer and Spartan Davis in training simulations aboard the UNSC Infinity to fight a campaign against Covenant forces, or join in online Co-op battle against the Flood.
Available June 1-15, “Dark Souls,” is perhaps most famous for its difficulty, but it is also, without question, among the greatest and most awe-inspiring games of its generation. Elegant in design, challenging in presentation and more than a little mysterious, “Dark Souls” will take you on a tour de force
Available June 16-30, we have “Charlie Murder,” a classic, side-scrolling beat-’em-up in which you take on the role of the title character or one of his stalwart band mates, as they try to save the world from an impending zombie apocalypse. And yes, they will also rock out quite a bit at the same time. A cartoon-like aesthetic, non-stop action and a dash of dark humour combine to make “Charlie Murder” fun for solo or up to four-player cooperative head-bashing.
Finally, we’ve got the one-year Games with Gold anniversary bonus – Capcom’s celebrated one-on-one fighting game “Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition,” available June 16-30. Yes, it’s “Street Fighter” and chances are you’ve probably played it, in some form or another, at least once in your life. And if not, you’re missing out on perhaps the most well-known and tightly balanced fighting game franchise ever made. This upgrade to the original “Street Fighter IV” brings the playable roster up to a whopping 39 characters, and features a decked-out online tournament mode, a team battle mode for up to eight players, and the option to save and share replays of your best (or worst) matches.
