With July just around the corner, Microsoft’s Major nelson finally announced the games for free in July on Xbox One. Unfortunately it’s a bit of bad news for the games with gold promotion in July, the promotion is continuing in July however there will only be one new Free Xbox One game to download, the game that will replace Halo:Spartan Assault and be available to download free on the 2nd of July is Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition.

Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship EditionThere will be no further games coming to Xbox One for free in July however Major nelson also confirmed today that Max: the curse of the brotherhood would remain free to download until the end of July. I certainly hope that this isn’t going to be a recurring thing each month, but we will have to wait and see. One game is defiantly better than none.

Free Xbox Live Arcade Games On Xbox One This June

Free Xbox Live Arcade Games coming to you this June on Xbox One.

Games with gold is finally coming to Xbox One and we can’t wait. The first two games that we will get are hands on will be Arcade games, but I think that is great as you can find some absolute gems in these Xbox Live arcade games. The first two games that will be offered for free in june are Halo: Spartan Assualt & Max the curse of the brotherhood.


Halo: Spartan Assualt Free On Xbox One

The first Free game with gold that you will receive on June 1st 2014 is Halo: Spartan Assault. Don’t get to excited this isn’t Halo as you know it, but that isn’t to say that the game is rubbish. Halo: Spartan Assault is a twin stick shooter that offers fans of the much loved Halo franchise a whole wealth of story (which is set in between halo 3 & halo 4) and gameplay to fall in love with. The Game itself does offer up some what of a challenge as you start to progress through the levels, unlike in most twin stick shooters, The creators 343 industries have done away with unlimited ammo meaning the classic gun ho approach is a bit hard to do, a slight bit of tactical play is needed to complete the whole game which consists of 30 missions.

343 Industries have once again delivered what can only be describes as a stunning looking game worthy in my opinion of being a Next-Gen title. This game becomes some much better when you load up the CO-OP mode and help a friend destroy the flood ( yes there are back again.) One of the possible downsides of Halo: Spartan Assault is all the Micro Transactions that you have within the game. The game is perfectly fine to play through without the need to purchase any of this added extras however I am personally not a fan of theses Micro transactions that have now made there way into Console games. Microsoft have done well in providing us with this as the very first Free Xbox live arcade game on Xbox One and here’s to hoping there will be many more excellent free arcade games to come.


MaX: the Curse of the Brotherhood Free on Xbox ONE THIS jUNE

Max: The curse of the Brotherhood is set to become the second free xbox live arcade game on Xbox One’s games with gold promotion in june and will be available to download for free from the 16th of June. The game is brought to you by Press Play. Max the curse of the brotherhood is probably one of the nicest looking Xbox One arcade games that has been released to date. There is no doubt that visually Max the curse of the Brotherhood delivers. As the character, Max you take control of a young boy that reads a spell online that sends his brother through a vortex into a unknown world of evil forces, Max who feels guilty jumps in after his brother. Armed with only a magic marker you must find your way to the evil wizard to get your brother back.

The game is a platform puzzler and is a breath of fresh air when it comes to side along puzzler games. With a good 5-7 hour long campaign to keep you going and plenty of frustrating puzzles to overcome you can be sure that the game will keep you entertained. Check out the video below of the Trailer to Max The curse of the Brotherhood.

Free Games with Gold coming to Xbox One

Get Free Games on Xbox One 

Microsoft announced the Xbox One at last years E3 festival and at that time they also announced that they would be launching a new programme called Games with Gold for users of the Xbox 360. For those that are unaware of what, games with gold is, it is simple. Each month Microsoft give away 2 free games for you to download and keep forever, they only condition is that you must have an active Gold Membership to download them. The great thing about this offer is not only do you get your hands on a load of free games, you also get to keep them ever when you don’t have Xbox Live Gold membership anymore.

Microsoft have stated that this promotion will more than likely continue for the foreseeable future which is excellence news for everyone still on Xbox 360, not so excellence news for your hard drive space. Since the launch of the Xbox One there has been many questions about whether or not the is an offer that will carry over to the Xbox One. The one problem that Microsoft have faced with bringing the promotion over to the new console is the fact that there simply not enough games available on Xbox One in the first place to start giving them away for free.

Microsoft have announced yesterday however that as of June the Free games with gold deals will roll at to all Xbox 360 owners who have an active Gold subscription. This news has gone down really well with fans of the hugely popular gaming console and I personally can’t wait to get my hands on a few free games. Microsoft have however also announce that this promotion will be slightly different in that when you download the games you will still only be able to play them with you gold membership unlike on the Xbox 360 where you can play them without the gold account. I can see this being an issue for most people and It seems a pretty fair thing for Microsoft to do.

The First two Free games For Xbox One Are?

 Halo: Spartan assault This should have you Halo fans out there pretty excited. Although it may not be Halo as you know it, it is still always cool to submerge yourselves into the world of Halo wherever possible, not just that it should be you even more hyped up for Halo 5.

Max: The curse of Brotherhood – for those of you that have been taking advanced of the games for gold offer on the Xbox 360, you will probably know that this is one of those games that will sit on your hard drive and never really play. Give it some credit however this game does get a reasonable 6.9 score on metacritic and it does look abit of a laugh.
