Halo: Spartan Assault and Max and the Curse of Brotherhood start things off
Microsoft has announced the first free Xbox One games you'll get as part of the Games with Gold program - Max and the Curse of Brotherhood from Press Play, and Halo: Spartan Assault from 343. They'll be available in June.
"Since Games with Gold launched on Xbox 360 a year ago, over 12 million people have enjoyed great free games, resulting in nearly 200 million hours of free fun playing Games with Gold titles," notes the Xbox NewsWire. "We've been learning from your feedback and have focused on making improvements each month to the selection of titles."Apparently you can expect a wide variety of games, from blockbusters to smaller-scale downloadable efforts. "Members will have subscription-based access to free games ranging from top hits to breaking indie stars." Yes, you read that right - a subscription will now be required in order to play free Xbox games with Gold on Xbox One, though Xbox 360 users will still get to keep their free games should they cancel their Gold subscription.
