It doesn't look like Microsoft had anything to give out any Xbox Live Gold free games for E3 2015.  E3, the big video game convention held annually at the Los Angeles Convention Center, but this doesn't mean that there isn't any extra free games available for the month of June.  This is what is known on Xbox Live Games with Gold Free Games for June and July 2015.

According to IGN.com, Telltale Games will be able to play the first episode of the Game of Thrones series (the game, not the HBO show) free of charge on the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One.  This free game is valid through June 22, 2015.  Other deals besides free games include 50 percent off Forza Horizon 2 Digital Edition for the Xbox One Game and Forza Horizon 2: Storm Island Add-On.  Half-off deals are also available for Battlefield 4 for the Xbox One and the Battlefield 4 Premium Edition Add-On.  Those 50 percent deals also expire on the June 22, 2015, according to Major Nelson, an excellent source for Games with Gold.    

Gamespot reports that all Xbox Live Gold members will be able to play EA Access Vault games for the next week. EA Access is the publisher's subscription service only available on Xbox One that provides members with free access to a selection of games, discounts on digital content, and early access to games. An EA executive Peter Moore also announced that Titanfall and Dragon Age: Inquisition are both on their way to Access. Inquisition will be available until the summer, but Titanfall is expected this week. As for the free to play Vault games, they include Battlefield 4, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, FIFA 15, Need for Speed Rivals, and many others.

As for the Live Gold free games available for July 2015, there is no word on that, and that information never comes forward until the end of the month. Until then, here are the Games with Gold that are available for the month of June.

Xbox 360 subscribers can try out Massive Chalice, a turn-based, squad tactics game with players going up against each other in a 3D environment. The various classes of characters include Hunters, Alchemists, and Caberjacks.

Also available is Pool Nation FX, a game of billiards that uses very realistic physics engine for very superior gameplay and photo-realistic graphics. This game was also available for free during April and May, which makes it the third month it has been available for free.

For the Xbox 360, players were treated earlier this month with an open world action-adventure title Just Cause 2. June 15th has revealed its replacement with Thief. Thief is the fourth installment of the popular cult classic series as the character embarks on missions to steal from the wealthy in this medieval-inspired universe. The player is Garret, who can pickpocket, cause distractions, and use weapons to take out enemies. This game will be available until June 30th.

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.
