Xbox Live Games With Gold July 2014: FREE 'Guacamelee!' For Xbox One, 'Gotham City Impostors' & 'Battleblock Theater' For 360
Microsoft is finally taking a page from what Sony has been doing with PS Plus and is releasing free games for all of their platforms with Games With Gold. Next month Xbox Live Gold subscribers will get another Xbox One title on top of their two Xbox 360 games, and the quality seems to have been stepped up as well!
The biggest indication of this is that Xbox One gamers are getting Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition as part of the game's launch! This is the new and improved version of the wonderful Metroidvania game that's been out for a little bit and sure to be a strong part of the One's lineup, and for owners to get it for free is a wonderful touch.
Last month's free XBox One title Halo: Spartan Assault will be leaving the service (so make sure to grab it before the end of June if you want it!) although Max: The Curse of the Brotherhood will remain free.
On Xbox 360, the excellent Batman multiplayer game Gotham City Imposters (normally $14.99) will be free starting on Tuesday, July 1 and running through July 15. On July 16 The Behemoth's BattleBlock Theater will be made available for free through July 31.
The Xbox One titles will function much like the Playstation Plus Instant Game Collection, where you have to be subscribed to their service in order to play the game for free, but the Xbox 360 titles are yours to own forever.
This is easily the best month in recent memory for Xbox Live Gold subscribers, so make sure your subscription is current in time for next month.
