Golden Summer


Microsoft has announced their June lineup for Games with Gold. Players with an Xbox Live Gold subscription can download SpeedRunners and Watch_Dogs for Xbox One, and Assassin’s Creed III along with Dragon Age: Origins for the Xbox 360. Both titles for Xbox 360 are playable on Xbox One through backwards compatibility.

Xbox One

Start your summer with the multiplayer fun of SpeedRunners. In a city filled with superheroes, arriving at the scene of the crime is half the battle. Race through the streets and across rooftops against up to three players. Slow down the competition with rockets, bombs, spikes, and numerous other weapons. Players will have the opportunity to pick up SpeedRunners throughout the whole month of June.

Take an early summer trip to Chicago with Watch_Dogs. Hack your way through the city as Aiden Pearce, a man haunted by tragedy. Hack security cameras, download personal information, and even control the flow of traffic, all from the palms of your hands. Watch_Dogs will be available for free from June 16 to July 15.

As an added bonus this month, players can download free multiplayer content for Phantom Dust.

Xbox 360

Relive the American Revolution as an assassin in Assassin’s Creed III. As Connor, players set out for revenge after the Templars decimate his village. Explore colonial Boston and New York as you take out your targets one-by-one. Assassin’s Creed III is available for free June 1-15.

From the creators of Mass Effect, Dragon Age: Origins puts players in the shoes of a legendary warrior. As a Grey Warden, you are the only hope for mankind and are tasked with slaying the archdemon. Create your own hero and set your own path as you make complex moral decisions throughout your adventure. Dragon Age: Origins will be available for free June 16-30.

May Games with Gold title, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, is still available until June 15.
