Earlier we had mentioned that Halo 3 would be available for free during the last half of October through the Games with Gold program. Starting right now you can grab the full game for free if you’re an Xbox LIVE Gold subscriber. You may download the game here. You can also grab the Heroic Map Pack for free here as well as the map Cold Storage for no cost.
Halo 3 will be free to Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers from now through October 31st.
Today is the start of a new month, and with that two new offerings will be available for the Games with Gold program on Xbox LIVE.
To kick off this month, you can download Might & Magic Clash of Heroes for free. This game will be free from October 1st through October 16th. You may download this title here: Might & Magic Clash of Heroes.
After the 16th, you will be able to download Halo 3 as the second half of October’s Games with Gold. This will be available from October 16th, through the 31st. As of this time, we do not know if any additional map packs will be included in this offer.
Earlier we had reported that starting in July and going through the end of this year, Xbox LIVE Gold members would be receiving two free games to download each month. Today, Larry Hryb (Major Nelson) announced that the first game for July will be Defense Grid: The Awakening.
This is an Xbox LIVE Arcade title that usually costs 800 Microsoft Points. It will be available as a free download to Gold members starting July 1st and lasting through July 15th. We are unsure if this game will still be free after the 15th or not.
Major Nelson also clarified today that Halo 3 or Assassin’s Creed II could possibly not be released this month as one of the free games. At this time, we do not know when during the Games with Gold program these will be released. We do not know what other titles are going to be released during this program as well. Once we find out this information, we will let you know!

“Halo. It’s finished. No, I think we’re just getting started.”
t’s once in a blue moon that a jewel of a map is forged in a video game. That blue moon has occurred however with Supply Bridge. Read on to find out what makes this map tick, and how you can get an upper hand on your friends.
This map is visually stunning. Set on a Marathon class cruiser, this map has thought of everything, from Cryo rooms to a Pillar of Autumn esq bridge. The details go so fine that even buttons have been placed on terminals, and the map feels like it should (Being a cruiser in space). If you think you’ve seen the best aesthetics in Reach, wait until you see this map.
“Supply Bridge” is a small, CQC map, built for FFA Slayer or 2v2 Slayer. What was played on FFA has shown this map to be of Matchmaking standard, with Gameplay being fast, furious and tactical. Unlike other FFA maps, where gameplay is simply a grenade fest, this map has doorways and weapons that will keep you on your toes throughout play. With plenty of cover and a playspace guaranteed to keep the bandwagon rolling, you’ll find this map plays well with 4-8 people.
Overall, “Supply Bridge” is a fun map built for FFA, and will have you believing your own a UNSC ship. With a bunch of friends to boot, this map can become a heaven for crazy Slayer action. It’s defiantly worth your time.
