Microsoft announced its Games with Gold program during its recent E3 event. Amidst all the hype and next-gen visuals, it was sort of lost in the shuffle. But starting this month with a free download of Fable 3, Games with Gold has quietly started delivering free copies of classic titles to Xbox Live Gold subscribers. A free game will be released for download on the 1st and 16th of each month!
You can still download Fable 3 until June 30th. Starting July 1st, you’ll be able to download July’s first game until July 15th. On the 16th, the second monthly title will be available free for the remainder of the month. While they haven’t said which is first, the 2 games for July were both huge smash hits; Assassin’s Creed 2 and Halo 3.
Lots of threes for this promotion, apparently. So what’s next, Battlefield 3? Anyway, Xbox Live Gold subscribers who don’t already own these titles (and have room for the multi gig downloads) should grab these games while the gettin’s good!
Here’s a little more info on the program from Xbox:
As our way of saying thanks for being part of this community, we’re giving all qualifying Gold members two free Xbox 360 games each month for the rest of the year. Each specially selected, fan-favorite game will be available to download only for a limited time, so grab them before they’re gone and keep them no matter what. Tell a friend about this offer so they can go Gold and get free games too.
