Well, it turns out the rumour from last weekend was a red herring, as Major Nelson has revealed the official list of Xbox Games with Gold for June. While there’s no Red Dead, the other games on offer are still exceptionally good/great, so who’s to complain?
On Xbox One, Xbox Live Gold members can download Goat Simulator for free during the month of June. The Crew will be available as a free download from June 16th to July 15th. Honestly, I’m excited to try out The Crew personally. While the demo didn’t do it for me, Ubisoft have since upgraded the game since the game launched, and it looks and feels a lot better. It’s one of the few games to receive a post-launch visual upgrade, along with Dying Light.
On Xbox 360, starting Wednesday, 1st of June, Super Meat Boy will be free for Xbox Live Gold members through June 15th. Then on June 16th, Xbox Live Gold Members can download XCOM: Enemy Unknown for free through June 30th.
I have never played Super Meat Boy (I know, I know, shame on me) so I’m looking forward to trying that out. Also, XCOM is an amazing experience, and let’s hope it’s a precursor to a console release of XCOM 2 later this year? One can hope. XCOM is a tough game to crack, especially with perma-death taking your most battle-hardened soldiers away from you, but that’s part of the fun, or burden of this game!
And remember, both 360 titles will be backwards compatible on Xbox One. So, what do you guys and girls make of June’s Xbox Games with Gold offerings?
