Microsoft announced during their E3 2013 presentation they would be making select titles available for free for its Xbox Live Gold subscribers. One of the first titles to be made available through Xbox Live’s “Games With Gold” program was Assassin’s Creed 2, and this week, another Ubisoft title has been chosen to be given away for free to Xbox Live Gold members.
Rainbow Six: Vegas has been selected as Microsoft’s next title to be offered for free through their Games With Gold program, which means if you’re an Xbox Live Gold member, you can head on over to your Xbox 360 and proceed to download the digital version of the game.
Similar to how Sony’s PlayStation Plus service works with their free games, Xbox Live Gold members will be able to download the free game so long as Microsoft continues to make it available. Once the game is no longer available, those who didn’t download the game won’t be able to download it for free, although if you did take advantage of the limited-time offer, you’ll own the game and can download it whenever you like. In other words, it’s in your best interest to download games made available through the Games With Gold program as it’ll always be available to you if you do.
