Microsoft today announced its Games with Gold for May, a program that offers four free games per month to Xbox Live Gold subscribers. The company returned to its usual trend of two Xbox One games and two Xbox 360 games that are playable on the Xbox One via the Backward Compatibility program, after last month it offered a game built for the original Xbox.
Here are the free games for the month of May:
Play a wild mix of fun party games as the action regularly switches back and forth between games. Can you handle the switcheroo chaos? Join your friends both on the couch and online while sadistically laughing at their misfortune, or come back to haunt them if you die. Run, jump and slap your way to victory!
Party Game madness: experience switcheroo chaos as the action jumps between multiple intense minigames when you least expect it, or take the challenge of completing a full play through of each minigame once. Face different game types and surprise bonus stages.
Pick your Marooner: a host of quirky characters to unlock and play as, 70+ hilarious weapons to unlock and use, and if you die... come back as a ghost to haunt your friends.
Play Party Mode and Arena Mode: 25 different games and arena maps, as you race for treasure in Party Mode or duke it out to see who will be king of the ring in Arena Mode. Whichever mode you pick, expect the unexpected!
Seamless local and online play: up to 6 players in any combination of local and online as you level up and unlock new weapons, plus full bot support to play solo and in multiplayer mode, spectator mode, streamlined matchmaker and lobby system.
Do you have what it takes to win PGA TOUR’s FedExCup? Compete in the all new officially licensed PGA TOUR Career mode. Play on famous courses like TPC Boston, TPC Sawgrass and more. Show off your skills as you take part in PGA TOUR events such as the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, the John Deere Classic and the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Take on Career Rivals throughout the season for that extra challenge and promise of reward.
Thousands of giant insects and aliens once again ravage the earth, and only the Earth Defense Force can stop them. Destroy these monsters at all costs, even if it means turning entire city blocks into rubble!
- Raw hardcore shooter satisfaction returns in this follow up to Earth Defense Force 2017
- New! Intense 3 player online co-op multiplayer and 6 player survival modes
- New! Collect over 300 weapons across 4 upgradeable armor types: Jetpack, Battle, Tactical, and Trooper
Here we are, it’s impulse buy time. You already know how awesome "Comic Jumper" is going to be from that sweet demo, but maybe you need more. How about a free premium dashboard theme? Free gamerpics? Free avatar accessories? Yes. Tons of unlockables and bonuses? How about a few new "Splosion Man" levels for good measure? "Comic Jumper" comes from Twisted Pixel Games, creators of the award-winning "Splosion Man" and "The Maw".
As usual, you'll need to claim your Games with Gold within the stated dates. If you cancel your subscription, you still get to keep the Xbox 360 games, but you'll lose the Xbox One titles.
It's also not too late to claim some of this month's Games with Gold. You can grab The Technomancer (Xbox One) and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 (Xbox 360) until the end of the month, and you can claim Outcast - Second Contact (Xbox One) until May 15.
