Here Are The Free Games With Gold For October 2015

The month of September is already winding down, and that means that it’s time to hear what the free games for Games With Gold will be for October!

On Xbox One gamers will be able to download Valiant Hearts: The Great War for the entire month of October. Then, The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season will be available to download for free from October 16 to November 15.

On the last-gen side of things, Xbox 360 owners will be able to download Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes for free from October 1 – October 15. After that, they’ll be able to download The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season for free until Halloween.

Not a bad selection of games, but for someone who has access to all the systems and subscribed to both PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold, there isn’t anything here we don’t already have.

Here Are The Free Xbox Games With Gold For August 2015

Major Nelson has revealed the next batch of free games for Xbox Live Gold members as part of the Games With Gold promotion. Just as before, gamers will be able to download two free Xbox One games and two free Xbox 360 games throughout the month of August 2015.

Free Games With Gold August 2015

For Xbox One, gamers will be able to download Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes for the entire month, while How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition will be available from August 15th – September 15th.

On Xbox 360, gamers are getting an even better deal with both slots being taken up by the critically-acclaimed Metro games. From August 1st – August 15th gamers will be able to download Metro 2033, and Metro: Last Light from August 16th – August 31st.

This is one of the strongest batch of games that Microsoft has ever offered as part of the Games With Gold promotion. It was a good move by them to follow what Sony did last month by offering Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes for free, as it’s a great way to get more people on board for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain when it releases in September.

Also, even though the Metro games were remastered for current-gen systems, it’s still great to know that the gamers will be able to download both games for absolutely nothing. They might not be the best versions of the games on the market, but you can’t beat free!

Here Are The Free Games With Gold For July 2015

Microsoft has released the list of free games that Xbox Live Gold members can download as part of the Games With Gold promotion for next month, and this time they’re upping the ante.

To celebrate the two year anniversary of Games With Gold, Microsoft will now be offering not just two free games on Xbox 360, but also two free games on Xbox One. Also, this change is permanent and all future free Games With Gold will contain the same amount of free games.

Enough with all the chit chat, scroll down to see what games will be available for each console and for how long.

You Can Now Purchase Xbox One Games Via Xbox 360, ‘Cuz Why Not?

It is now possible to download Xbox One games from your Xbox 360… because technology!

You ever have one of those days where you just want to buy Xbox One games from your Xbox 360? Well now you can! Microsoft has revealed that gamers will be able to start building their Xbox One libraries from their 360s through the Games With Gold program.

While it seems pretty superfluous at first, it’s kind of neat for people who don’t have an Xbox One yet. That’s because they will be able to take advantage of the free Xbox One games that are released every month, regardless of whether or not they even own the console.

Now, you could previously do this from the website, but who the heck wants to do that? You can do it right from the Xbox 360’s homepage by clicking on the Games With Gold section, which is way easier. This month’s free Xbox One game is none other than Rayman Legends, which is something I have been meaning to check out for ages and ages and even longer.

Oh, and if you don’t believe anything that I wrote above, just check out the video for yourself below! 

Xbox Live Gold Members Can Download ‘SSX’ For Free Right Now

Get EA Canada’s well-received reboot absolutely free if you’re an Xbox Live Gold member.

EA Canada’s SSX reboot released in 2012 and generated pretty solid reviews, and now Xbox Live Gold members can download it absolutely free as part of the Games With Gold promotion. The game is yours to keep even if your Xbox Live subscription runs out, so even if you don’t have the space just get the download going and you can resume it when (if ever) you want to.

If you’re looking for a little info on the game itself, it tones down the more silly approach of previous games in the series for a more realistic one. Rather than utilizing fictional courses like in previous games, SSX’s courses are all real locations. The story follows Zoe Payne who is gathering a team of nine of the best riders in the world to conquer the nine deadliest descents across the world. Of course, a former SSX member is trying to do the same exact thing, which leads to the two teams to a race to see who can conquer all of the trials first.

Xbox Games With Gold For December 2014 Revealed

A decent month for Games With Gold.

An OK month for Xbox Live Gold members, as December will be bringing them one free Xbox One game and two free Xbox 360 games. The news was revealed on Major Nelson’s blog right here.

First up is Worms Battlegrounds on Xbox One, which will be available to download for free for the entire month of December. Meanwhile, on Xbox 360 gamers will be able to download The Raven: Legacy of the Master Thief from December 1st to December 15th. The second game that they will be able to download for the second half of the month will be the reboot of SSX.

For those of you who still haven’t jumped on the current Games With Gold offerings, you still have four days to download Volgarr the Viking on Xbox One and Red Faction Guerilla on Xbox 360.
