This month sees a much stronger line-up for Games with Gold than in previous months. EA are coming in swinging with NHL 19 on the Xbox One early June, with Rivals of Aether joining in later in the month. As for the the Xbox 360 backwards compatible games, we have Portal: Still Alive early in the month and Earth Defence Force 2017 later on.
With a whole variety of gameplay on offer between these four you are sure to find at least one that takes your fancy, but they are all free so why not jump in and try something different?
To help you decide here’s the official blurb on this month’s titles:
