Here Are the Freebies for May 2018 for Xbox Gold Subscribers
Microsoft employs a stellar Xbox Live service for its player base, but the months of Games with Gold have been met by a lukewarm response. Fortunately, the general response may change with the latest list of free games.
May’s Games with Gold lineup appears pretty solid. On the Xbox One, Super Mega Baseball 2 will debut on Games with Gold and the critically acclaimed Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will also be available. Not too shabby!
On the Xbox 360 and available on the Xbox One via backwards compatible both Vanquish and Streets of Rage will be free. All you need is an Xbox Live Gold subscription. Speaking of which, Microsoft recently hosted a Spring sale that gave 3 months of Xbox Live for $9.99. It may still be going on.
Right now, players have from April 16 to May 15 to download games The Witness, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, and Deadspace 2.
A few years ago we reviewed The Phantom Pain and said: “The Phantom Pain is beautiful looking game. One of my favourite moments of the game was to sit in a black hawk helicopter between missions and take in the large draw distances, beautiful landscapes and swirling sand prior to touching down. Ambient background noises help lend credibility to the environments making them feel more real and less like set pieces. My only gripe with the visuals is that in tight corners the camera can be a bit clunky, but these instances were few and far between. Phantom Pain is hands down one of the best game’s I have played in a long time. The open world environment offers you an endless amount of ways to play. Phantom Pain is a game you can sink over 100 hours into and still come back for more. Even if you haven’t played past Metal Gear games, Phantom Pain is a great place to start.”
All in all, this looks like a very solid list of Games with Gold for May 2018. What are your thoughts? Feel free to let us know in the comments below.
