Are you unfamiliar with the Games with Gold program and want to know more? Curious as to which games will be free next or what the current free game is? You have come to the right place!

 

 

What is Games with Gold?

  • Games with Gold is a program that started in June 2013 that lets people who have a gold account on Xbox Live get free games! Originally giving out two free games, it has since increased to 4 games! Two games are from the 360 era, and two more games are from the current Xbox One era.
  • In order to get the free game, you must download it during the time period where it is the free game; it is not possible to obtain past games for free if you have not previously downloaded them.
  • All Original Xbox (OX) and Xbox 360 era games will be 'backward compatible' going forward, meaning that they can be played on the Xbox One.
  • Some games are not available in certain countries due to regional restrictions. They will be replaced with different games only available in those regions.
  • On Xbox 360, you own these games forever. If you decide to no longer have a gold account, you can still play the game.
  • On Xbox One, you will only be able to play the games offered as long as you have a gold account. If you decide to no longer have a gold account, you will either have to purchase the game or renew your gold membership in order to play the games offered.
  • There are often deals of the week (DotW) that take place along with the free game such as DLC or related games being discounted.
  • As of December 2020, all new games listed can also be played on the Xbox Series X|S due to the console's ability to play all previously-classified backward compatible games.

You know I think this thread is much better than the original one that is currently "Sticky", this one should probably replace it. Assuming it will also be constantly updated as the new games are out for Games with Gold?

Yeah, a fresh start would probably best. The current sticky is like 30% Mass wild guessing/wishing, 40% bitching about the choices, 25% bitching at the people bitching about the choices, and 5% talking about the actual games offered.

 

Agreed.

 

However, it's obvious this is a thread to replace the other so let's not further the posts of, "Will this thread replace the other" since we're technically just spamming by doing so.

To all of the posts asking "Is this replacing the other thread?", I have requested for this thread to replace the current one, and I hope it will. I decided to make a completely new thread since I honestly think the current thread is horrible as it is basically just a list with absolutely no information about the program for those who may be new to Xbox and do not know anything about it, doesn't mention the deals that sometimes go along with the free game that people may not be aware of, and it had no mention of the Xbox One part of the program at all. I also found the current thread to be rather spam-filled with many useless posts that were very off-topic and had absolutely nothing to do with the topic. I will be keeping this thread up to date and current, and my hope is that it will be informative to everyone and not filled with so many pointless posts like the other thread. If everyone could please stay on-topic in this one and actually discuss the games, that would be great!

 

Also, I have just added the current and past Games with Gold in Japan for all of the Japanese gamers who are using the site! =D

 

I think making SSF4 free just before the Ultra upgrade comes out is a great idea! I'm looking forward to Max on One too. :)

I also think it was a good move to make it free as the Ultra upgrade is coming out June 4th; I have a feeling more people will probably get the upgraded version because of it. I am excited for Max to be free as well; I came close to buying it a few times, and I am glad that I waited now!

In regards to this, there is nothing wrong with talking about the games on offer or even discussing rumors about upcoming games but please try and keep the arguing/flaming out of this thread. If people don't like the games on offer or if Deadsea complains about buying the game only a month earlier, please respond in a civil manner or not at all.

I think my de facto will love dark souls but to be sure can anyone tell me what it is about and what type of game it is? And does it take 30 seconds to get all the achievements or 30 years lol. I am personally looking forward to halo Spartan assault which is due at some point.
