Assassin's Creed II Confirmed as Next Free Title For 'Games With Gold'
Written By
View author's profile

Microsoft's Major Nelson has confirmed via Twitter that Assassin's Creed II will be the next free title for the 'Games With Gold' promotion on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Currently, Defense Grid: The Awakening is this month's first free game, which can be downloaded now for absolutely nothing. It's available until July 15th, with Assassin's Creed II to then be available for free download on July 16th until July 31st.

Major Nelson has also recently suggested that should the Games With Gold promotion prove a continuing success, it could run past its originally allotted Christmas cut-off point. Halo 3 has also been announced as one of the free games on the Games With Gold schedule, though a date for its arrival has yet to be confirmed.

I would like it if they made a game free before its sequel came out to get you excited like have GTA IV befor V or Batman Arkham City before Origins. As this could maybe even improve sales for the companies.

The hell are you on about? There's nothing to suggest they changed anything; for all you know, AC2 was always planned to be the second July offering.
Maybe you should be the one paying attention.
OT: I'll download it, namely so that if I suddenly get the impulse to play it again then that options on the table, regardless of whether the game is with me (I move between locations a lot).

Free games is great, but its not exactly a great range of games so far.

Games about four years old which most Xbox owners would have already picked up by now as so cheap or poorly selling XBLA games that no-one cared about in the first place.
I presume they'll be some kinnect & dance games chucked in there as well.

I know everyone goes on about PS+ being rental blah blah blah but regardless of your view on that you cannot compare the games that Sony gives away each month with these games.

MS really shot themselves in the foot with the launch of the XBone & you'd think they'd be doing more to retain the customer base they've got. Currently the games on offer isn't the way to go.
I knowq they've also got some decent deals running alongside this, but a lot of people still angry that these games won't work next gen are holding off.

Come on MS throw us a (X)Bone. SORRY!

@23 - that's because Sony care about their customers. Microsoft only care about our wallets. I've been a loyal Xbox consumer since the very first Xbox but now, I'm going with Sony for the next gen. And if they can provide a superior online experience (like Xbox LIVE) then they will pretty much score a slam dunk in every category.

@26 Good, go enjoy your PS3.5. You and 23 are bitching about a program that has 2 free games so far with a couple months scheduled that they will probably be extended. Just because the 2 games released and 2 games announced are not ones you want does not make it a bad program and plenty of people will take advantage of it.

Oh shut the fuck up and stop taking the time to be a whining pricks all of ye haters! It's free games, I hadn't played fable 3, am about to now! AC and HALO 3 are classics, whether you have played them or not! Am most cheap whinging cunts on this site rent all your games anyway so now ye'll have a copy of them! I can't wait to see more and play (what will hopefully turn into) a 24 game collection of games that give you a quick rundown on the developement of the 360 and it's life!

I can't see how anyone could defend this program. It's practically nothing--my $50 would get me a hell of a lot more with Sony. These are scraps! Let's put aside the "be grateful-it's free" argument (which it really isn't, as I pay $50 a year) and I can't see a single reason anyone should be satisfied with this. This is a major company grasping at straws in the face of what may possibly be a couple of major downhill years due to incompetence. Being complacent with this is EXACTLY what they want, and I'm amazed so many on here are excited for this program.

And don't give me the Sony fanboy nonsense, please. I've played Xbox for years now, and was looking forward to the next wave of Xbox (hoping Microsoft would improve where they needed improvement) and was utterly let down. That's why I and many others have had such a change of heart; we're tired of being fucked by an enormous corporation.

@36 - very unlikely that these will be downhill years for Microsoft.

Personally, I pay €50 a year for a great online service, with no expectancy for getting free games. Anything free is a bonus in my mind! and They're great titles that everyone should play (including the millions of xbox users that haven't played them).

Picture owning a Nintendo 64, having never played MarioKart64, then seeing other people complain about getting it for free from Nintendo!

PS+ is a rental service, whereas these games will forever be in your collection, when your kids (or grandkids) take an interest in retro gaming they'll be able to dust of the 360 you have in your attic and play some of the best titles ever released for the platform

#30 you can't be serious? Microsoft copy Sony? You do realize Microsoft has made every decision regarding the PS4. Sony doesn't have the vision or balls to make any decision themselves. They wait for M$ to do something and see the reaction. That's a company with a vision for sure.

And Sony hasn't copied anything recently? No Move is totally original, Trohpies were their great idea, PSN is also so original. They're original contributions to console gaming in the past 7 years are basically zip. I'll be playing Titalfall while you'll be rocking Killzone.

Have fun with that.

Got 1000 on this on my old 360, then bought it when I got a new one and it was in a massive backlog of games. Traded it in for some credit towards the XB1 and now I can get it for free.

I own Fable III & Halo 3 on disc... but I haven't finished all the achievements for either game... so I welcome the GoD versions, so I don't have to insert the disc to play the game - just choose it from a menu!

It doesn't matter to me if they only make games free, that I already own... but if they release games I didn't own before, like Defense Grid... it gives me a chance to try something new. :-)

I do know a few people who haven't played "Halo 3" - or any of the other Halo games (I know... what's wrong with these people - right?!), so maybe they'll give it a try, since it will be free!!

@41 a great online experience is to be expected. The $50 arrive has been advertised as having exclusive discounts and offers (which Gold does: demos, and the deal of the week) but are Live's offerings as substantial as Playstation Network's? Lets be real; they're miles off of what PSN offers.

As for the games, you're right. Halo 3 is a classic. Assassin's Creed 2, while I'm no fan, is a classic. But these are games that I'd be willing to bet the vast majority of 360 owners have played. If they haven't, it's likely they have no interest in playing such games, as many have mentioned they're available for less than a premium coffee.

And I don't understand the issue with the "rental service". For many, as long as they play video games they'll maintain an Internet subscription (that is, Gold or PS+). So "losing" your PS+ games comes when you give up the gun for good, and stop playing video games. Though your argument does have credence. But future generations could just as easily play the Halo 3 disc I have and many others have, rather than the digital version.

I prefer the ability to choose from a selection, like each month have a few games and you can choose which ones you want. Also a couple from the last year or two would be nice, sure a company might lose a little giving a game for free but they would make it back with DLC and stuff. I got Max Payne when it was on sale for 400msp and didn't know it had like 3000msp worth of DLC!

Just saw Halo 3 for £2 in GAME. People seem to be looking at this like Microsoft are doing everyone a fantastic service. Sorry but I'm not falling for it, not trying to start a console argument but when Sony are offering their customers games like BF3, SR3 and XCOM, I look at this as a really desperate attempt to convince people not to jump ship.

It's amazing the amount of Sony love tards who flock to any xbox thread to explain how wonderful the ps3 is and how great the psn is, I'm not sure how you have so much time in your hands with all these amazing free rentals. If your not connected to the Internet can you still play these games? Because that sounds a little familiar to me but I can't figure out where? Also while we are talking ps3 can someone explain why psn is such a chore bore to look through and why does naughty dogs games have that annoying swaying control with their games? The last of us is good tho. The only game I have purchased for the ps3 since uc3 probably makes my games list hit about ten on the ps3 and about one 20th of the games I've played on the 360. So Suck that ms haters I know which best console experience I had this gen and it was not sonys.

As an Xbox owner (5 in total, no PS3) I've just been on the PlayStation website to see their free games offer. And its quite astonishing.

Yesterday I was in Game and saw the two consoles advertised side by side
£429 + £349. The cheaper one is more powerful.

It has been good the Xbox. Very good in fact. It still could be again. But it would need a serious re-think of everything. Perhaps most of Microsoft's senior management just pissing off would be a good start.

The argument that "Sony is offering newer games like BF3 and Saints Row 3 and Microsoft is offering old shit that everyone has already played" is the biggest joke ever. Sure BF3 and Saints Row 3 may be newer, but who the fuck hasnt played those either?

I'm certain it will be JUST the game. Fable II is one of the rare games that has a version that includes the DLC "in" the game, not just on the disc as an item to be installed (this is on the "Platinum Hits" version). However... THAT version (unfortunately) is not the GoD version.

I noticed that "Borderlands 2" (GoD version) is (was?) on sale really cheap... but the DLC is REALLY EXPENSIVE (even with their so-called discount). If someone hasn't played that game yet, but wanted to... it'd be cheaper to wait for the GOTY edition!

I thought of another bonus to having the GoD versions on my HD: I can let family or friends play those games without needing to let them handle my discs, and possibly scratch them or cause some other problems with them.

@70 Correct me if im wrong but wasn't BL2 worth like $15 on sale. Also, im pretty sure that the first 3 DLC's were or are $5.

@60 A lot of the people saying this service sucks seem to have gamerscores over 100,000. So I hardly see how you can call them "Sony Love Tards". As for your question. Yes, you can still play the PS+ games offline... You need to be subscribed, but you don't need to be signed in once you've downloaded them. Not sure what you mean about the annoying swaying control in Naughty Dog games...

Remember the first time you got the dual hidden blades? Or the hidden gun? This game is awesome because of it.

@55 - WTF are you on about?
Do you selectively read to justify your argument? Or are you just retarded?
How am I a PS fanboy if I've been an xbox consumer since 2002? I haven't owned a Sony console since the PS2. Microsoft don't give a shit about consumers. remember a few weeks ago, when they still thought their policies were a good idea? "we have a console for those who can't get connected, it's called the 360 - that's our offline device". : From the mouth of Don Mattrick himself.
And Microsoft have destroyed plenty of consoles. RRoD. Look it up.
I'm simply making a choice to no longer support the company.
And if you have a problem with it, I believe you can go fuck yourself!

You can't realistically expect them to give away newer games. It just wouldn't make sense. But don't assume everyone has played every game that's years old. We can't all play on the Xbox for hours every day, much as we might like to. Yes, I've (only recently, ironically) completed AC2, but only ever took a brief look at a friend's copy of Halo 3, and never bought Fable 3. So, for me it's great news. And I'm sure I won't be the only one in this situation. If you're someone with a 100K+ gamerscore, you've covered a lot more ground, so the odds are you're more likely to have already played any game that isn't brand new. Stands to reason.

But for those who haven't yet picked up AC2. Do it!
By far the best entry in the series...

I highly recommend that everyone downloads every game, regardless of whether you have/played it. Even if you delete it right after, if they are trying to see how "successful" this program is, maybe, just maybe a high rate of downloads will convince them to expand this past Christmas.
