One of the very best decisions that console makers Microsoft and Sony have made, is to offer free games to those who are members of their Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus programs each month. Hundreds of dollars worth of games for free each year. It makes the pill that is having to pay to play (online) much, much easier to swallow.
The four free games being offered to Xbox players for Games With Gold June 2016 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below along with information on each of the four titles.
Our June celebration begins with the ma-a-a-a-arvelous Goat Simulator and drives into June 16 with The Crew. On the Xbox 360, Xbox Live Gold members start the month with platforming classic Super Meat Boy, and get tactical with XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
As usual, all games are available only for a limited time, as part of the ongoing Games with Gold program, so sign up now to get in on the action!
* Goat Simulator ($9.99 ERP): Available from June 1-30 on Xbox One
* The Crew ($29.99 ERP): Available from June 16-July 15 on Xbox One
* Super Meat Boy ($14.99 ERP): Available from June 1-15 on Xbox 360 and Xbox One
* XCOM Enemy Unknown ($39.99 ERP): Available from June 16-30 on Xbox 360 and Xbox One
On June 1, we’ve got the next-gen goat simulation technology of Goat Simulator! Crash through the world as a goat, do some epic tongue grabs and rack up points for destroying everything you see. You can even compete with your friends to see who can smash more things in style. Oh, did we mention you can be a goat?
Then, on June 16, take a wild ride with your friends in The Crew. A revolutionary, action-driving open-world game with a richly detailed recreation of the United States, The Crew offers an online driving experience like none other. Tackle challenges across the map, infiltrate underground racing teams and defeat dangerous criminal groups with Alex Taylor. There is no better time to take a test drive.
Also on June 1, put on your platforming shoes because Super Meat Boy is coming at you full force on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One. It has over 300 levels, epic boss fights and tons of unlockable secrets like retro warp zones. You can even play with characters from other famous indie games. So, there is only one question left to ask: Can you run, jump and wall jump through pure madness?
Last but certainly not least, get strategic and fight off aliens with XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Prepare your squad of custom-equipped troops with countless upgrades, abilities, and equipment, because XCOM: Enemy Unknown is the complete turn-based strategy package.
I dunno about you, but I’m pretty excited about Goat Simulator. It’s one that’s always looked like a lot of ridiculous fun, but I never got around to actually playing.
