Microsoft gives an update to the monthly “Free” games on Xbox Live. In a circular email to users, the group announced that the line-ups will no longer include Xbox 360 games from October 1st. “We have reached the limit of our possibilities, Add Xbox 360 games to the catalogue“, Microsoft writes in the message. Nevertheless, every month Games with Gold should contain “exciting Xbox One titles and exclusive savings”.
Changes from October
Xbox 360 games you downloaded before October 2022 will not be affected. “Any Xbox 360 titles redeemed through Games with Gold before this point can be kept in your Xbox account, regardless of whether you continue your subscription,” Microsoft added. Most recently, Microsoft distributed two Xbox One and Xbox 360 games each month to all Xbox Live Gold members. Due to the backward compatibility on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, the 360 games can also be played comfortably on the current Xbox consoles.
July games at Games with Gold
It is believed that line-ups at Games with Gold will consist primarily of Xbox One games starting in October. Microsoft has not yet announced any concrete plans. The company had already announced which “free” games you would get with Xbox Live Gold in July 2022. For Xbox 360 there are, among others, Thrillville: Off the Rails and Torchlight. Relicta and Beasts of Maravilla Island are available this month especially for Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. Xbox Live Gold costs around 60 euros per year.
