Microsoft announced the games that will be available as part of the monthly Games with Gold promotion.
We actually have some great options this month, along with some slightly less interesting ones. On the Xbox One side, we have Double Fine’s turn-based strategy game, Massive Chalice, as well as PoolNationFX. Again. In case you missed it the last two months. Massive Chalice is a brand new game on Xbox One. Like PlayStation Plus did with OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood in April, Microsoft is making it part of the promotion right at release.
On the Xbox 360 side, we have Avalanche Studios’ Just Cause 2 available. If you haven’t played Just Cause yet and you’re curious about whether the upcoming Just Cause 3 might be for you, this is a great way to get in and see what all the hype is about. In case you were wondering, the hype is about grappling hooks, jet plane surfing, and explosions. Also available is Square Enix and Eidos Montreal’s 2014 take on the Thief property.
Massive Chalice is from a fan favorite studio and Just Cause 2 has developed a strong cult following over the years since its release, making this month stronger than some recent ones. Massive Chalice, Just Cause 2, and PoolNationFX are available June 1, and Thief goes up June 16.
