It's almost May and as Xbox Gold Subscribers are remembering to pick up last month's Games With Gold many of us are preparing for four more games to become available for no additional cost. Like always if you’re an Xbox gold subscriber you will be able to download two Xbox 360 and two Xbox One games free of charge. You can download one Xbox 360 title at the beginning of the month and then on the 16th you’ll be able to download the second. The first Xbox One game will be available for the entire month and when the second Xbox One game becomes available on the 16th it will last through until the 15th of the next month.
Xbox One GamesFor the entirety of May, you will be able to download Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - Director's Cut. Playing as Giana in this colorful platformer you need to use your abilities to morph between different dreamworlds, each having their own parts of the puzzle required for progression. Along the way encounter all manner of enemies and bosses testing your abilities, if that's not enough of a challenge you can also complete the games hard mode.
Once you're had enough of dreams head out into the depths of Egypt with Lara Croft as she seeks out an adventure in Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris. In this game, Lara joins up with rival tomb raider Carter Bell and the reawakened gods Horus and Isis to take on Set and a curse he has placed on them all. Playing like Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light this isometric Tomb Raider adventure allows you to go it alone, or team up with three of your friends to survive what's ahead of you. This game will be available between May 16th and June 15th.
Xbox 360 GamesCoinciding with the 40th anniversary of Star Wars between the 1st and 15th of May players can return to the dark side in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. After his betrayal at the hands of Darth Vader his former secret apprentice Starkiller has fled to find out who he is. Along the journey discover new force powers to take on opponents and wield two lightsabers at once becoming an unstoppable force.
If a serious Star Wars game isn't your thing then between the 16th and the end of May you can instead download LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga featuring LEGO levels from the first six Star Wars movies. Whether you want to spend time on the forest moon of Endor helping out rebel troops or swimming to the depths of Otoh Gunga you will find all manner of characters, powerups, and more on your journey.
