Xbox Games with Gold – July 2015
This month Microsoft is giving away even more games than normal for Xbox Gold subscribers – 2 games for the Xbox 360 and 2 for the Xbox One. These games are available for a limited time only, so make sure you snap them up before the time runs out. There are some stellar games available this month, so you’ll definitely want to take a break from the sunshine to get some gaming in!
The Games with Gold offerings for the Xbox One are Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, and So Many Me.
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag
If you’ve never played an Assassin’s Creed game before, this is definitely a good one to get you started. After all, there aren’t that many games that allow you to be a rum swigging pirate on the high seas! It’s an incredible adventure game that will enable you to explore a huge world whilst doing a variety of side missions. The main story will take around 20 hours and has a whopping 60 achievements up for grabs worth 1250 in Gamerscore. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is giving us proof that Microsoft are not settling when it comes to giving us stellar games for our subscription. This game is available for download throughout the whole of July.
So Many Me
So Many Me is an indie platform puzzle game developed by ORiGo Games. In this platformer you’ll be presented with a host of cute characters, each of which has a different mutating ability. You’ll have hundreds of puzzles to try out, and find thousands of different ways to solve them. If you love a good puzzle game, and are fond of cute graphics, this game will definitely become a favourite. So Many Me is available for download from July 15th until August 15th.
The Games with Gold offerings for the Xbox 360 are Plants vs. Zombies, and Gears of War 3.
Plants vs. Zombies
Plants vs. Zombies is an incredibly addictive game that will leave you wondering where the time went (seriously!). For a basic puzzle game, it’ll have you stuck to your chair working out how to plant enough killer plants to stop the zombies getting across your lawn (or through your pool!) and entering your house. Crazy Dave is around to sell you extra plant seeds and deflection devices, but you’ll need to keep your wits about you to stop the hordes of zombies. Fun, silly, and definitely one to make you think, Plants vs. Zombies is definitely one of my favourite 360 games. It’s available for download from July 1st until July 15th.
Gears of War 3
A third person shooter, Gears of War 3 succeeds where many other third-in-the-line games fail. Whether you’re playing for the story, the online multi-player, or purely because it’s a free game with Games with Gold, you’ll find the game plays great, looks fantastic, and keeps you enthralled from start to finish. Gears of War 3 was one of the best rated action games of its time, and to this day is still one of the best shooters I’ve ever seen. It’s definitely worth downloading, even if you’ve not played any of the others in this franchise. Gears of War 3 will be available from the 16th – 31st July.
