With September only a couple days away we were given the two titles that will be up for grabs for free to Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers. The first title that will be available next month is Magic 2013.
Based on the widely popular trading card franchise, Magic 2013 will offer players a greater challenge compared to past iterations. Play with the AI or grab some friends to take on new encounters and opponents. Plus give the Planechase multiplayer format a try with up to three other players. Magic 2013 will be free to Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers from September 1st-15th.
The second portion of this months free games will include Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas.
Visit the notorious streets of Las Vegas, Nevada as a group of terrorists threatens to take world terrorism to a different level. Rainbow Six Vegas will be available for free to Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers from September 16th – 30th.
Late last month we found out that Crackdown would be kicking off the month of August for Xbox LIVE’s “Games with Gold” program. We also found out that Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero would be the free games come August 16th. The time has finally arrived to get your creativity together and go slay some zombies as DR2 and Case Zero are now available to download!
You can grab Dead Rising 2 for free here. You can also grab Case Zero here. As a reminder, these games are free only to Xbox LIVE Gold members and will be through August 31st. We will update you as to what titles will be offered for the month of September once we find out.
Earlier today we found out the next two titles being offered for the month of August during the Games with Gold program. The first game on the docket, which will be available tomorrow; will be 2007’s popular title Crackdown.
This title is normally priced $14.99 and will be available for download starting tomorrow, August 1st. The next title, which will arrive on August 16th, is Dead Rising 2 which normally is priced at $29.99. Also available as a free download will be Dead Rising 2: Case Zero which normally sells for 400 Microsoft Points.
Again, these free games are part of the Games with Gold program. Which kicked off in July and will last through the end of this year.
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!
