Celebrate Games with Gold Turning Three with June’s Free Games

In June, Games with Gold is having its third birthday and to celebrate, we’ve got a special line-up of games to see in the summer.

Xbox One will get two dedicated titles, as well as two Xbox 360 titles through Xbox One Backward Compatibility – a total of four completely free titles thanks to Games with Gold. Xbox 360 gamers, of course, also get access to the latter two titles.

Our June celebration begins with Goat Simulator, followed by The Crew available from 16th June. On the Xbox 360, Xbox Live Gold members start the month with platforming classic Super Meat Boy, and get tactical with XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

As usual, all games are available for a limited time only, as part of the ongoing Games with Gold programme, so sign up now to get in on the action!

* Goat Simulator (£7.99 ERP): Available from June 1-30 on Xbox One

* The Crew (£23.99 ERP): Available from June 16-July 15 on Xbox One

* Super Meat Boy (£9.99 ERP): Available from June 1-15 on Xbox 360 and Xbox One

* XCOM Enemy Unknown (£49.99): Available from June 16-30 on Xbox 360 and Xbox One

On 1st June, we’ve got the next-gen goat simulation technology of Goat Simulator! Crash through the world as a goat, do some epic tongue grabs and rack up points for destroying everything you see. You can even compete with your friends to see who can smash more things in style.

Then, on 16th June, take a wild ride with your friends in The Crew. A revolutionary, action-driving open-world game with a richly detailed recreation of the United States, The Crew offers an online driving experience like no other. Tackle challenges across the map, infiltrate underground racing teams and defeat dangerous criminal groups with Alex Taylor.

Also on 1st June, Super Meat Boy is coming at you full force on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One. It has over 300 levels, epic boss fights and unlockable secrets like retro warp zones – you can even play with characters from other famous indie games.

Finally, get strategic and fight off aliens with XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Prepare your squad of custom-equipped troops with countless upgrades, abilities, and equipment, because XCOM: Enemy Unknown is the complete turn-based strategy package.

* Titles are available as free downloads for a limited time, for qualifying paid Xbox Live Gold members in all markets where Xbox Live is available. Some regions may offer different titles depending on market availability. See Major Nelson’s blog for additional details.
