Just as we reach June, Microsoft has made available the first round of free games for Xbox Live Gold members. As announced last week, SpeedRunners for Xbox One, and Assassin's Creed III for Xbox 360 are now available for free. The latter is also accessible on Xbox One consoles through Backward Compatibility.
The new lineup's store links and descriptions are as follows:
In a city filled with superheroes, getting to crimes becomes a competition on its own. Fortunately there are enough rockets, bombs, grappling hooks, spikes, and other goodies lying around -- to make the competition fun and fast. Welcome to SpeedRunners.
SpeedRunners is a 4 player competitive platformer with grappling hooks, power-ups, and interactive environments. Run, jump, swing around, fire rockets, grapple onto people to knock them off screen.
The American Colonies, 1775. It’s a time of civil unrest and political upheaval in the Americas. As a Native American Assassin fights to protect his land and his people he will ignite the flames of a young nation’s revolution. In Assassin’s Creed® III, eliminate your enemies with an array of new weapons including guns, bows, tomahawks, and trusty hidden blades. The game has been in development for over 3 years and features the new Ubisoft-AnvilNext engine, a stunning technology that will revolutionize gaming with powerful graphics, lifelike animations, immersive combat, and advanced physics. With an all new setting, assassin and engine Assassin’s Creed® III takes you back to the American Revolutionary War, but not the one you’ve read about in history books.
Also, for those who missed it, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is available to claim until June 15 for Xbox One. Keep in mind that only claimed Xbox 360 games will remain playable if the Gold subscription is interrupted, unlike claimed Xbox One games, which are only available with an active subscription.
