It’s that time of the month again, the time when Xbox Live Gold members see what games they’re going to get free as part of their subscription, Microsoft has just confirmed the Xbox Games with Gold lineup for May 2016. Four new free games, two on Xbox One and two on Xbox 360, are being offered for May as part of the Games with Gold program. Since Xbox One features backwards compatibility the Xbox 360 titles can be played on it as well.
During the month of May, Xbox One owners with a Live Gold subscription can download Defense Grid 2 for free. Costume Quest 2 will be available for free from May 16th to June 15th, also for Xbox One.
Xbox 360 owners can download GRID 2 starting May 1st and the title will remain free through May 15th. The next day they will be able to download Peggle for free until May 31st. Both of these games will also be playable on the Xbox One courtesy backwards compatibility on the current-gen console.
These titles are offered as free downloads from Xbox Live Gold members in all markets where Xbox Live is available. The company does point out that some regions may offer different titles depending on market availability.
