The Games for Gold program for Xbox Live always gives away free games during the month. As far as the Xbox Live Free Games for May 2015 are concerned, there are two free games available for Xbox One users, and two free ones for Xbox 360 users. As for what is available for June 2015, we at least have a release date one when those games will be appearing.
According to Major Nelson, the month of May 2015 is going to give Xbox Live Gold members three new free games on the Xbox One and Xbox 360 as part of the Games with Gold program. There are two free games available for Xbox One users, and two free ones for Xbox 360 users. As for what is available for June 2015, we at least have a release date one when those games will be appearing.
For Xbox One users, they will be treated to CastleStorm: Definitive Edition for free. If you are not familiar with CastleStorm, the Xbox Store describes it as "a super genre mashup of 2D physics destruction mashed with tower defense brawler...It's Knights vs. Vikings...where medieval warfare meets 2D physics-based destruction!" The Definitive Edition includes the original campaign and 2 additional expansions: from Outcast to Savior and The Warrior Queen. It also includes 20 new single player battles, 4 new extreme survival battles, 10 new magic spells, and more.
Another game being offered for additional month for the Xbox One is Pool Nation FX, a game of billiards with photo-realistic graphics and real-world physics.
As far as the Xbox 360 is concerned, Xbox Live Gold members can have access Mafia II as of last Friday, May 1st. If you aren't familiar with Mafia II, it is an action-adventure game made by 2K Games that was released in 2010, a sequel to Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven. The story is from a third-person perspective, focusing in a fictional city of Empire Bay as the main character gets caught up in the seedy world of organized crime.
Also available for the Xbox 360 is F1 2013, a car racing game that features all eleven teams and twenty-two drivers competing in the 2013 season, not to mention the nineteen circuits and Grands Prix. There is even a "Classic Edition" of the game with drivers, cars, and circuits from the 1980s and the 1990s.
So with all the action going on in May, what can be expected for June 2015? Since Microsoft usually unveils the free game every last Thursday of the month, it is really impossible to speculate what games will be available for free in June 2015. This means that Games with Gold subscribers are probably going to need to wait until May 28th for more details. So far, there has been little rumors of that.
Xbox Live Gold program is a paid subscription service for the Xbox community, but Xbox users can sign up for free. With Gold comes features like online gaming, private chat, and much more. Microsoft really sweetened this deal back in E3 2013 when they announced their Games with Gold program, which allows Xbox 360 subscribers to receive a complimentary game twice a month, while Xbox One subscribers receive one game per month.
