Originally thought to be either an error in the system or a promotion to promote the announcement of Fable Anniversary, Fable 3 would become the first unofficial Games with Gold download. During E3, Microsoft came out and addressed the question that was on everyone’s mind. Fable 3 was used as a promotion to announce that Microsoft would be giving their Xbox live members 2 games for free each month starting on July 1st and continue until the release of the Xbox One. Originally Microsoft announced that Halo 3 and Assassin’s Creed 2 would be the first two games to be released as part of the Games with Gold program. This was not the case with Microsoft throwing a curve ball into the mix with the arcade game, Defense Grid.
