The newest set of Microsoft’s “Games with Gold” free games are online on Xbox Live right now.
There’s a distinct apocalypse flavouring to this month’s titles – whether you prefer zombies or post-nuclear war mutants, Microsoft has you covered.
Xbox One owners are treated to the expanded zombie survival crafting sim How to Survive: Storm Warning edition from now through September 15th. Meanwhile, Xbox 360 owners can finish the story they began with Metro:Last Light following the previous Metro 2033, free till the end of the month.
Games with Gold is a programme of free titles (similar to Playstation Plus) Microsoft released during E3 2013. It rewards players with an Xbox Live subscription with two or more free games a month simply for subscribing.
If you’re missing either a 360 or an Xbox One, you could try flagging the other titles on the Xbox Web Store to your account. Either the last-generation titles will potentially be available through digital backwards compatibility, or you’ll be building your library for your new console!
Below is a breakdown of all the Games with Gold titles for the August-September period:
- Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (August 1-31)
- How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition (August 16-September 15)
Metro 2033 (August 1-15)
