It’s nearly the end of the month, and that means the time has come to hear about what new games will be given as part of Games With Gold for Xbox Gold subscribers.
In June, players can expect the usual 2 games on Xbox One and 2 games for Xbox 360 or the Xbox One via backwards compatibility. What is different this time is the added inclusion of DLC for the recently rereleased Phantom Dust. The DLC is valued at $14.99 and will assist you in your multiplayer endeavors with new items to strengthen your character. The DLC pack will be available for free for the entirety of June.
Making it’s debut on Xbox One as a Games With Gold title is SpeedRunners. In SpeedRunners, players compete to reach a finish line while using super powers to trip up their opponents. The title has already been released for Windows, Mac, and Linux computers. SpeedRunners will be available for free through the month of June.
Coming from Ubisoft is a double-dose of sandbox style gameplay with multiplayer baked right in. WATCH_DOGS casts players as Aiden Pierce, a skilled hacker in a fictionalized version of Chicago. Pierce begins a campaign of revenge after hitmen botch a bank heist job and places his niece in a coma. Multiplayer in WATCH_DOGS features both cooperative and competitive game types. WATCH_DOGS will be available from June 16th to July 15th.
The second title from Ubisoft is a brand-new backwards compatibility title added only today. Assassin’s Creed III wraps up the story of Desmond Miles in the year 2012, while showing the American Revolution through the eyes and blades of half-British half-Mohawk tribesman Assassin known as Connor. A multiplayer mode is also here where players attempt to assassinate your targets while staying alive yourself. Assassin’s Creed III is the 100th Xbox 360 title to be offered, and the 5th title of the franchise to be offered in Games With Gold. Assassin’s Creed III will be available from June 1st to June 15th.
The last title to be offered through Games With Gold this month is the epic RPG Dragon Age: Origins. After creating your own character, join the Grey Wardens and fight back the Darkspawn that threaten the land of Ferelden. With multiple characters at player’s side and relationships to cultivate with them, Dragon Age: Origins is a classic Bioware title. Dragon Age: Origins is a single-player affair, but does offer plenty of DLC to try and multiple endings. Dragon Age: Origins will be available from June 16th to June 30th.
Games With Gold are free to anyone who has an Xbox Live Gold subscription and all titles are redeemable regardless of play history or consoles owned.
