Xbox Wire has spilled the beans on what games you will be playing for free as part of May’s Xbox Games with Gold incentive. Four free titles come to Xbox One and Xbox 360, and of course, the latter are backwards compatible too.
Kicking off the Games with Gold list on May 1st is Defense Grid 2 and it will be available throughout the whole month. Defense Grid 2 introduces new worlds and threats to test your tower placement strategies. With a bold new look, a compelling single-player campaign, and the addition of new game modes, online player-versus-player and multiplayer co-op, every play-through brings fun new opportunities and challenges. DG2 comes with a story campaign featuring 21 stunning maps, dynamic level movement, an expanded story and cast of characters, hundreds of challenge mode experiences,
Next on the list is Costume Quest 2 which becomes available on May 16th to June 15th. Costume Quest 2 is a light RPG from Double Fine, and lets you explore spooky time-traversing landscapes, don adorable new costumes that transform into powerful Hallo-warriors, and collect even Creepier Treat Cards to wield in combat against a legion of hygiene obsessed baddies.
On the Xbox 360 Games with Gold front, fans can look forward to Codemasters’ Grid 2 on May 1st-15th, a simulation racing game that followed up the awesome Grid. While Grid Autosport released about a year after Grid 2, fixing some of the game’s issues, this should still be an interesting title for racing fans.
The original Peggle from Popcap games, the developer of Plants vs Zombies, its Garden Warfare spin-off and Bejeweled series is the last title on the list. A bit of an odd choice, considering its age, and how its sequel is already on Xbox One, but if you missed either of them, you will surely love the charm in this title. Peggle will be available in the second half of May.
