Games With Gold is a program that has netted gamers plenty of excellent titles. It routinely gives gamers the chance to experience games they have yet to play or wouldn’t normally play. Microsoft continues to add new titles every month and this June’s Games With Gold lineup is an epic month for Xbox One players.
Today, news has surfaced regarding June’s Games With Gold lineup and it is an impressive one. For Xbox One gamers, Speedrunners will be free from June 1 through June 30. Additionally, the highly popular Ubisoft game Watch Dogs will also be available from June 15 through July 16.
On the Xbox 360 side of things, gamers will be able to pick up Dragon Age: Origins from June 16 through June 30. Not only that, but Assassin’s Creed III will be available from June 1 through June 15. Bonus multiplayer DLC for Phantom Dust will also be available from June 1 through June 30. This is by far one of the biggest Games With Gold months gamers have seen this generation.
Games With Gold has had a tendency to bring exciting AAA current-generation games to players more often than PlayStation Plus. That, coupled with Xbox 360 Backwards Compatibility, and gamers have constantly been receiving outstanding hits, month after month.
While E3 2017 is next month, this certainly gives Microsoft a lot more momentum heading into the event. Watch Dogs was what it was, but it is still one of the highest grossing new IPs of this generation. It is a steal for Games With Gold subscribers to be able to pick it up for free this June.
Both Assassin’s Creed III and Dragon Age: Origins are excellent experiences. Backwards Compatibility makes these two titles remarkably more valuable. All of these games will surely help gamers get through the drier months of the summer. It’s hard to say this June’s games isn’t one of the strongest lineups ever for Games With Gold because it is.
This is a small, yet exciting, move for Xbox heading into next month. June will be a crucial time for Microsoft as they’ll be unveiling Project Scorpio at E3 2017. Having Games With Gold hitting its stride during that time period will be a nice complimentary piece to the grand puzzle for Microsoft.
E3 2017 will take place from June 13 through June 15 in Los Angeles, CA. Microsoft and the rest of the gaming industry will gather to show off its best experiences. Project Scorpio is expected to launch this coming holiday season. Stick around here at We Write Things for more on Xbox.
