Microsoft very month makes two games free for Xbox Live Gold members to download for a limited time on both the Xbox One and 360.
Since November 2015 the two free Xbox 360 games have also been backwards compatible with the Xbox One, meaning owners of Microsoft’s latest console can effectively get four free games a month.
The games are yours to keep even if you drop your Xbox Live Gold subscription.
Below are the free Xbox Live Games With Gold for this month.
- Costume Quest 2 available from 16 May – 15 June.
- Goat Simulator available from 1 June – 30 June.
- The Crew available from 16 June – 15 July.
- Super Meat Boy available from 1 June – 15 June.
- XCOM: Enemy Unknown available from 16 June – 30 June.
How to get free Xbox Live Games With Gold
Firstly, you’ll need to be a Gold member of Xbox Live, meaning you must have paid subscription fee.
People using/with a trial membership will not have access and Silver tier members will not be eligible even during a ‘free Gold’ weekend.
There will usually be a Games With Gold tile on the Home screen of the Xbox console dashboard that will take you directly to the free games.
If not, head to the ‘Store’ tab on Xbox One or the ‘Games’ tab on Xbox 360.
You can also use the Xbox website.
- Log in using your account details.
- Head to the Games With Gold page , or simply click on the names of the games in the list above.
- Once you’ve clicked ‘purchase’, the free game will be added to your console’s download queue the next time you turn it on or, if you have your Xbox One set to ‘Instant-On’ mode, it will begin downloading immediately.
