Microsoft’s Games with Gold program for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 has kicked off again for the month of June, and some decent choices are available. The free games in question are The Crew and XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

The Crew is a new racing game from Ubisoft that didn’t do too well at retail, and it didn’t help that critics gave it a beating, either. However, the game became a bit better with updates but seeing as there aren’t many people playing the game online, we doubt most gamers will get the best enjoyment out of it.

As for XCOM: Enemy Unknown, this is a strategy game about aliens and is available for the Xbox 360. If you do not have an Xbox 360 on-hand, then the game can be played on an Xbox One via backwards compatibility.

Description for The Crew:

The Crew is a revolutionary action-driving MMO that connects players online like never before. The Crew takes you and your friends on a wild ride across a massive, open-world recreation of the United States that is richly detailed and loaded with endless challenges. Generous in content and tailored for the connected generation, The Crew is the next-gen game that redefines action-driving.

Description for XCOM: Enemy Unknown:

From the award-winning creators of Civilization comes an action-strategy game about humanity’s last stand. Threatened by an unknown enemy, the Earth’s governments unite to form a secret paramilitary organization, known as XCOM, to combat this extraterrestrial attack. As the commander of XCOM, you control the global defense team in a battle against a terrifying alien invasion. Control the fate of the human race by creating and managing a fully operational base, researching alien technologies, planning combat missions, and controlling soldier movement in battle.

Goat Simulator and Super Meatboy are also a part of the Games with Gold program for the month of June.
