Games with Gold is Microsoft’s attempt to counter Sony’s Playstation plus program, which offers members free games every month. With the program, Xbox Live Gold members are eligible to receive multiple free games in the Xbox Store each month. Due to the interest of readers, we will catalog and archive the Games with Gold program here.
How to get free games
Xbox Live Gold members must log in to their consoles or the Xbox Marketplace and “buy” each free game at some point during its promotional period. Games with gold is available on Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
Generally, four games are released each month for about two weeks, two for each console. There are two games available during the first half of each month and another two games during the second half. However, keep in mind that Microsoft occasionally changes this release schedule, for example releasing a single Xbox One game for a full month or releasing more than two games per month for each platform.
You don’t really need descargar a game during its availability period to get it, but you must at least complete the free “purchase” online or through your console to qualify. Once the promotional period for a game has expired, it will no longer be free and will revert to its previous price, but if you “bought” the game for free prior to this, it will be yours indefinitely.
Games with Gold List to date
Below is a table listing all Gold Games titles to date. Each title links directly to the Xbox.com Marketplace, where Xbox Live members can log in and “buy” games during their free period without having to log into their consoles.
“GWG Release” is the first day the game is free with the Games with Gold promotion, “Orig. Release ”is the date the game was first released for Xbox, and“ Reg. Price ”is the current price of a game in the Xbox Store before the free promotion (not the original retail price of the game).
