Make Room for Three Great Games in May - Games with Gold

Xbox Wire:
It’s not quite time for summer vacation, but May is a time for sunny days, warm weather, and plenty of great gaming courtesy of Games with Gold. In May, Games with Gold is adding CastleStorm: Definitive Edition, an awesome tower-defense brawler mashup title, for free, as well as extending Pool Nation in Games with Gold for another month on Xbox One. On the Xbox 360 front, two great games are coming free in May: Mafia II, a third-person action game that immerses players in the dark and unforgiving world of the Mafia in the 1940’s and 50’s, and F1 2013, a realistic, open-wheel racing sim. As usual, all games are available only for a limited time*, as part of the ongoing Games with Gold program.

Wow, looks like both the PS+ free games and Games With Gold are striking out in May!!

Considering Witcher 3 releases next month. Can't have anything to crazy for May.

KiwiViper852961d ago

I think everyone is looking forward to Witcher 3... It's gonna sell so well.

CDPR deserves the riches

XanderZane2961d ago

Yup.. I'm not mad at Microsoft or Sony for these weak offerings, because I still have a lot of the other free games they've given me over the past 4 months to play. Like you said, The Witcher 3 is coming in May, so I definitely won't have time to play any of these freebies next month.

Yep, both PS+ and Games with Gold are subpar.

Sony doesn't need to improve PS+ subpar offerings, since the PS4 is selling quite well... but Microsoft could really sell a few more X1's if their Gold offerings were better. It's Microsoft that needs to improve, not Sony.
Like it or not, the company that "offers" better games with their paid online service, could sway a few gamers in purchasing their console instead of the competition. It happened last gen with PS+ "offerings" for the PS3.

Microsoft doesn't learn... they simply don't know how to compete.
Supposing the other way around, if the X1 had better sales then the PS4, you could bet your a** that Sony would be offering AAA PS4 games with PS+ to improve sales.

PS+ offerings subpar? Whatever....
Not sure about the all the PS offerings, but I know Guacamelee and The Unfinished Swan are great games.
To say Sony is not putting in any effort because the PS4 is selling so well is ignorant.
I'm in Playstation's corner, but getting AC Blag Flag for free was pretty sweet!

DanZeeMan2961d ago

My spider senses are telling me you possibly own a PS4

OC_MurphysLaw2962d ago

Happy to see CastleStorm on the list. Its a game I was interested in but was probably not willing to buy.

ThinkThink2961d ago

CastleStorm was great. Looking forward to playing it again with the DLC on the X1.

MTROB2962d ago

I thought it was going to be DR3 for XB1, nevermind!

xDHAV0K24x2961d ago

WCxAlchemist2962d ago

ERFO2962d ago

Yea, very lackluster next month. There are way better titles out there old or not that could be offered to Xbox users.

xDHAV0K24x2961d ago

Neverwinter and Happy Wars is also free to play
