Microsoft has officially unveiled the list of titles featured in June's Xbox Live Games with Gold giveaway program. And, like in previous deals, only Gold subscribers of Xbox Live will be able to take advantage of the free games.
As detailed in Microsoft's Major Nelson website, June's lineup consists of four games that are equally divided for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. But, through the company's backwards compatibility service, Xbox One gamers can also play the Xbox 360 titles on their consoles.
Technically, for the Xbox One, gamers can get "Goat Simulator" for free from June 1 to 30. This game first debuted for the Microsoft Windows in April of 2014 before arriving to the Xbox platforms a year later. As its title suggests, this third-person game lets players take control of a goat to explore its surroundings and interact with various objects.
The second game that will be available for free for the Xbox One from June 16 to July 15 is "The Crew." Released by Ubisoft in 2014, this online racing game features an open-world setting. Although its gameplay was praised by critics, others didn't like its lack of an offline single-player mode.
As for Xbox 360 players, next month's Games with Gold features "Super Meat Boy," which will be available for the first half of June. This indie title was developed by Team Meat and came out in 2010. It is a platformer that requires players to get the main character across various obstacle-filled stages.
Another game that will be available for the Xbox 360 is "XCOM: Enemy Unknown." The game features a turn-based tactical form of gameplay and serves as a remake of "UFO: Enemy Unknown" from 1994. In the game, players take on the role of a military commander to direct soldiers during combat missions against alien forces.
Aside from the action aspect of the game, players will also have to manage their resources and create new weapons and other technologies for the soldiers. This game is available for free through Xbox Live's Games with Gold from June 16 to 30.
