Last month we learned that Games With Gold (the newer, Xbox equivalent of the free games given to subscribers of Sony’s PlayStation Plus) would finally be coming to the Xbox One. As with PS+, you’ll only be able to keep these games for as long as you’re a member of Xbox Live Gold, which is a change from the Xbox 360 version of the program.
Well, it’s June, and that means the first Games With Gold Xbox One games are now available. If you’re a Gold member, you can pick up Halo: Spartan Assault and Max: The Curse of Brotherhood for free now.
By the way, if you’re a Gold member without an Xbox One, you can still “purchase” the free games to register them to your account, so they’ll be there for you to download if and when you do get an Xbox One.
It’s great to see Games With Gold finally come to the new console. Are you interested in either or both of these games? What titles would you like see brought to the program in the future?
