PostSubject: Microsoft Puts a Date on Free Xbox Live Gold Games   Mon Jun 24, 2013 1:40 am

Microsoft has released a few more details regarding the free games it intends to offer alongside Xbox Live Gold memberships.
Announced during E3 2013, the platform holder will be rewarding Gold members with two free titles every month. And unlike the equivalent PlayStation service, the Instant Game Collection, these are games that you can keep indefinitely.
Beginning in July, Microsoft will be offering up the free titles on the 1st and 16th of every month, starting with Assassinís Creed II and Halo 3.
"As our way of saying thanks, we're giving all active Gold members two bonus Xbox 360 games each month for the rest of the year," reads a statement from MS.†
"Each specially selected, fan-favourite game will be available to download only for a limited time, so grab them before they're gone and keep them no matter what."
Nice, eh? Oh, and Gold members can still grab Fable III through Xbox Live up until then end of the month. Get on that if you haven't already.
[via†OXM]

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.

On a related note I noticed that the Kreig BL2 DLC is on sale. It's showing at 800 msp with a 400 msp discount. I thought it was 800 anyway???

I did when he was full price, he is a funny character I just wasn't in too his skill tree that much but that's just my preference, I'm not a melee style player, so would say if you don't mind buying him with no achievement then he's worth getting.

On a side note, noticed late last night borderlands 2 and assassins creed 3 were £8.99 gutted I missed it as I would have bothy Ac3 at the price, still need to play it. Sad

I picked up Farcry 3 for £8.99 the day before. Seems pretty good, but a little underwhelming straigt after Bioshock Infinite.
