Games with Gold June 2017: Ubi rolling in it
This month's Games with Gold are awash with AAA titles.
It's hard to complain about free games (well, free with a membership fee) but Xbox's Games with Gold lineup can be a bit hit or miss. Sometimes you get the cream of the crop and sometimes you get the games nobody is buying. While this month's games are admittedly yesteryear's primo titles, they're still quality AAA games.
Full list of free games for June 2017
- Speedrunners, Xbox One (1-30 June)
- Watch Dogs, Xbox One (16 June - 15 July)
- Assassin's Creed III, Xbox 360 and Xbox One (1-15 June)
- Dragon Age Origins, Xbox 360 and Xbox One (16-30 June)
- Phantom Dust DLC pack, Xbox One (1-30 June)
One the AAA front, Xbox One owners score Assassin's Creed III, Watch Dogs 2 and Dragon Age Origins. Xbox 360 vets also can also get their mitts on Assassin's Creed III and Dragon Age Origins.
While we're not going to assume Dragon Age Origins' inclusion is a hint of things to come from EA's E3 conference this year, the inclusion of Assassin's Creed III may have something to do with Ubisoft resurfacing the brand before the inevitable reveal of what's currently known as Assassin's Creed Origins at this year's show.
Outside of that Xbox One owners also getting treated to a neat little competitive side-scroller known as Speedrunners. tinyBuildGAMES' Speedrunners has players racing along a 2D plane, using wall-jumping, swinging and offensive items to get ahead of the pack. Think of it like Mario Kart with running instead of driving.
Xbox One and Phantom Dust owners also get a little treat this month, scoring 3 free DLC packs for the recently released free-to-play remake.
It's also worth noting that you've still got until the end of the month to download Giana Sisters Twisted Dreams and until 15 June to download Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris on Xbox One. Xbox 360 owners have until the under of the month to redeem LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga.
