As of the 4th of June, 2014, Xbox One has now received it’s first bath of games under the Games With Gold feature. Xbox Live Gold members can pick up Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Halo: Spartan Assault for free, for life, before the offer runs out. This comes with the Xbox 360 games available this month, starting with Dark Souls, which you can pick up before the 16th (and you really should) and then Charlie Murder and Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition from the 16th until the end of the month.
This month shows a huge push from Microsoft to start offering a lot more value for Xbox Live Gold customers, with a total of 5 potential games you can pick up for free in one month, rather than the 2 that have previously been available for each half to the month. Not only that, but finally getting the service available on the Xbox One should make a lot of Xbox One owners extremely happy and eager to see what else will come up for free in the coming months, especially with E3 literally around the corner.
Along with these free games, Crimson Dragon will also receive a discount of 50% for any Xbox Live Gold users on the Xbox One, so you’re already starting to see huge value for money here.
So go and get your free games! Which ones are you looking forward to the most? I’m currently downloading Max: TCoB as I already purchased Spartan Assault on release.
