Rejoice Xbox One gamers! The Games with Gold titles available in June will be Super Meat Boy (June 1 – June 15), The Crew (June 16 – July 15), Goat Simulator (June 1 – 30), and XCOM: Enemy Unknown (June 16 – June 30). Under the program, Microsoft offers free games to every Xbox One owner that has an Xbox Live Gold account, something we’re pretty sure will make many gamers very happy. This would be a good move for Microsoft as the E3 2016 is coming soon and this way, it could promote its console and new controller.

UPDATE – Games With Gold Available In June

Xbox One:

  • Goat Simulator – June 1 – 30
  • The Crew – June 16 – July 15

Xbox 360:

  • Super Meat Boy – June 1 – June 15
  • XCOM: Enemy Unknown – June 16 – June 30

This means these games will most likely join the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program.

Microsoft announced that all titles that will be offered via the Game with Gold program will be part of the library, with Bioshock Infinite already confirmed. In addition, the Xbox One lineup will also include Lichdom: Battlemage and Rise: Son Of Rome, which means that owners of the latest console released by Microsoft will have access to four games for free.

With the sales of PlayStation 4 continuing to go well and the Xbox One console lagging, Microsoft reduced the price of its Xbox One console as a response. It seems that it’s now trying to attract more customers via its Game with Gold program. Hopefully, players will demonstrate an interest in these free games and will convince their friends to buy Microsoft’s console in order to play together.

Do you own an Xbox One console? What are your thoughts about the Game with Gold program and the games that it comes with?
