Games with gold is Microsoft’s free game program for Xbox 360 and Xbox one. It allows users who purchase an Xbox live gold subscription (a requirement for playing online with the console) to download a game for both their Xbox one, and their Xbox 360. On Xbox 360 there are two games a month, one from the 1st to the 15th, and one from the 16th to the end of the month and on Xbox one there is usually just a single game available all month, at least at present.
On Xbox 360 the first free game available is Viva piñata: Trouble in Paradise. This is an expansion to the regular Viva Piñata. This game is somewhat of a garden simulator, as you start with a small patch of land and have to attract piñatas into the garden. Once inside, you have to breed them; grow plants and trees to get even more experience and piñatas, and slowly work your way through the entire game, collecting as many piñatas as your can. Once downloaded, this game is available in your collection forever.
For Xbox One the free game this month is Volgarr the Viking, a retro styled 2d platforming game which prides itself on its return to old school in many ways. The game is very difficult, and requires precision platforming, excellent timing and has just one respawn point per level. This makes the game incredibly frustrating, but also very rewarding at the same time. Interestingly, this is actually the first console release for Volgarr the Viking, meaning this is a FREE chance to try a brand new opportunity. As announced recently, your Xbox One games with gold are only valid while your gold membership continues.
Later on in the month on Xbox 360 Red Faction: Armegeddon will be available for download. This months games in total are excellent examples of games with gold, being one of the better months we’ve seen; at least on the Xbox 360 side of things. Hopefully you enjoy Novembers free games with gold!
