Xbox Live Games With Gold May 2015: 'Castle Storm', 'F1 2013', 'Mafia 2' & More 'Pool Nation'
Joining Sony's announcement of the free PS Plus games for May, Microsoft has announced the free titles for its version of the offer, Games With Gold.
The traditional setup for Games With Gold is one free Xbox One title and two free Xbox 360 games, though Microsoft is mixing it up slightly this time. It will be extending one of the Xbox One games from last month, Pool Nation, through May.
In addition to Pool Nation remaining available, Xbox One is getting Castle Storm: Definitive Edition. CastleStorm is a genre mash-up that combines medieval warfare with 2D physics-based destruction. Prepare to be challenged (in a good way) to manage a lot of battlefield elements at one time by controlling the battle in real-time, bombarding your enemy's battlements with ballista-projected artillery, managing a fearsome ground attack, and casting powerful spells in epic conflict between Knights and Viking warriors.
Mafia II will be available first, offered from May to May 15. Mafia II puts you in the shoes of Vito Scaletta, an Italian immigrant to America who finds himself wrapped up in an increasingly complex series of criminal plots in post-World War II America. As Vito, you'll drive period cars all around Empire Bay, based on a pastiche of America's biggest burgs, and blast your way through a variety of challenges, from bank robberies to ambushing rival gangs to sweet-talking your favorite molls
The title will switch to F1 2013 from May 16 to May 31, featuring all the cars, drivers and circuits from the 2013 FIA Formula One World Championship plus all-new classic content from the 1980s.
