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 Live Gold members for Games With Gold in May 2019 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below along with information on each of the four titles.
Welcome to another Games with Gold reveal for Xbox One and Xbox 360! In May on Xbox One, mix up the fun and party with friends in Marooners, then pick up your driver and hit the links in The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA Tour. On Xbox 360, and Xbox One via Backward Compatibility, defend the planet against an alien-insect invasion in Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon, and finally the leap into comic book action in Comic Jumper.
All games will be available exclusively for Xbox Live Gold members for a limited time as part of Games with Gold. With Xbox Live Gold, you get the most advanced multiplayer service, free games, and exclusive member discounts on games in the Microsoft Store — get Xbox Live Gold today to get in on the action!
Marooners ($9.99 ERP): Available May 1 to 31 on Xbox One
The Golf Club 2 Featuring PGA Tour ($49.99 ERP): Available May 16 to June 15 on Xbox One

It’s time to mix up the fun in the party game extravaganza, Marooners. Join up to 6 of your friends on the couch or online, laugh sadistically at their misfortune, or even haunt and pester them after you die as you battle it out in 25 different games and arenas. The action is intense, switching between games when you least expect it. Run, jump and slap your way to victory!
The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA Tour
Hit the links in The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA Tour. In the officially licensed PGA Tour career mode, test your abilities on beautifully recreated courses like TPC Boston, TPC Sawgrass and more to compete for the coveted Fed Ex cup. With a focus on authenticity and realism, customization, and competition against friends online, this title will appeal to both golf enthusiasts and new players alike.
Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon
Defend the earth at all costs in Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon. Thousands of aliens and giant insects are invading the planet and only the Earth Defense Force can stop them. Take part in non-stop bug killing action, even if it means turning an entire city to rubble. Utilize over 300 weapons, jetpacks and tactical armor to defend humanity.
Jump into comic book adventure in the madcap Comic Jumper. In order to save his own poorly selling title, Captain Smiley must work-for-hire and earn money by fixing the problems within other comic books. Leap into the different genres of Fantasy, Silver Age, Modern and Manga and raise the funds necessary to get his series back up and running.
