As part of the first anniversary of Games with Gold, Microsoft have listened to what we want and have finally made the change. This month’s Xbox One update will allow for Gold members to have free access to two new games and Xbox 360 Gold member’s three new games.

Xbox One owners will be able to download Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Halo: Spartan Assault. Whereas if you are lucky enough to still have an Xbox 360 or have decided not to upgrade to an Xbox One yet, you can still benefit from downloading Dark Souls, Charlie Murder and an additional bonus game of Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood


A platform game where, as Max, you need to rescue your little brother from an evil cartoon villain called Mustacho. The journey includes challenging puzzles and making your way through several different environments with the help of your trusty magic marker.

Halo: Spartan Assault

Halo Spartan Assault

A new chapter in the award winning “Halo” series. The story is set between “Halo 3” and “Halo 4”. Fight a Campaign against Covenant forces with Commander Sarah Palmer and Spartan Davis in training simulations aboard the UNSC Infinity. You can also join online Co-op battles against the flood.

Dark Souls

Dark Souls 2

Available for the first half of June until the 15th, Dark Souls will be available for download on Xbox 360. Most famous for its difficulty, it is amongst the greatest games of its generation. The action-role-playing games will take you on a tour de force.

Charlie Murder

Charlie Murder Bar Brawl

Available from 16th to 30th June, Charlie Murder is a classic, side scrolling beat-‘em-up game where you play the part of the title character or one of his stalwart band friends, trying to save the world from the impending Zombie apocalypse. The cartoon style game can been played solo or as part of a multiplayer, up to four people.

Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition


Specially for the first anniversary of Games with Gold, Capcoms’s one-on-one fighting game will be available for the second half of the month. With 39 characters to choose from and a featured decked-out online tour mode, a team battle mode for up to eight players and the option to save and share replay of your matches, this game download just can’t be missed.

Remember though, for Xbox One owners, as soon as you end your Xbox Live subscription, you’ll no longer have access to games you’ve acquired via Games with Gold.
