We’re just a couple of days away from June and with that means that there is a whole new line up of Games with Gold releasing for Xbox Gold Subscribers. For those who don’t know how it works every month there is one Xbox One game and two Xbox 360 games that are released for free so that subscribers of Xbox Gold are able to download them.
First up for the Xbox One Pool Nation FX is once again returning to the Games with Gold lineup for its third month in a row so if you haven’t downloaded it yet then that’s more your fault than anything. The new Xbox One game that is part of Games with Gold is extremely new as it is entering the Xbox Store, it’s a new game from Double Fine called Massive Chalice. Massive Chalice is a tactical RPG of epic proportions as you don’t only fight for a kingdom but you have to fight for many many years and even decades…maybe centuries. On top of the tactics needed when fighting other kingdoms you also need to nurture the future generations by making sure that there are royal marriages in your favor and you continue to grow. These games will be free for the entirety of the month of June.
For the Xbox 360 starting on the first of June Just Cause 2 will be available for free for Xbox 360 users. In Just Cause 2 you play as agent Rico Rodriguez as you have to find and kill your mentor that has escaped to an island paradise. You’ll get to grapple, parachute, BASE jump, hijack and run wild on the large open world as you try to complete your goal. On the 16th of the month Just Cause 2 will return to its normal price and Thief will become free until the end of the month. You will play as Garrett, the master thief, as you explore the city as an uprising emerges. The uprising leads to violence as you need to step in to ensure that the city doesn’t tear itself apart.
What do you think of this months selection of Games with Gold? Are you looking forward to any of these games?
