Officially kicking off way back in July 2013, Microsoft’s Games with Gold programme has since then steadfastly been rewarding gamers who fork out their monthly XBOX Live subscription with two or more free games a month – a pretty decent reward in my book.
Some months are certainly better than others in terms of the free games being given away, but if you are an XBOX 360 owner with an active XBOX Live account in April 2015, then you’ve most definitely got some pretty decent freebies to look forward to!
(To be fair though, March 2015 was pretty damn good too – the superb Tomb Raider (2013) from Crystal Dynamics was available for the first half of the month, followed up by the excellent BioShock Infinite (2013) the latter!)
To celebrate the Games with Gold programme as a whole, Microsoft is giving away an unprecedented four free XBOX 360 titles for April, three AAA releases and one hit indie title.
This is the list as it stands right now:
- Gears Of War: Judgment (2013) (Available from April 1-15)
- Terraria (2011) (Available from April 1-15)
- Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (2013) (Available from April 16-30)
- Army Of Two: The Devil’s Cartel (2013) (Available from April 16-30)
As it turns out, I’m scoring big time because I haven’t before played any of the four!
I’m not particularly interested in Terraria (in other words, I don’t bother with Minecraft), but I am VERY interested in Gears of War: Judgment and Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel for their co-op value (time to lock and load, Ryan!) – and then of course there is the pirate-themed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag… seriously, what’s not to love, based on setup alone!
So yes, it looks like my backlog is about to grow a bit again…
