Microsoft’s ongoing Games with Gold program will replace its current offering of free games to Gold subscribers for a fresh batch of four titles split evenly between the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. This means you have most of this week to add Borderlands, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments, Lords of the Fallen, and Supreme Commander 2 to your game libraries before they’re swapped out for four brand new titles on April 1st.
Aprils Games with Gold begins with Telltale’s Fables adaptation The Wolf Among Us for Xbox One (available April 1-30) and Dead Space for the Xbox 360 (April 1-15). Insomniac’s colorfully apocalyptic third-person shooter Sunset Overdrive will follow on the Xbox One in mid-April (April 15-May 15), while the 360 gets Saints Row IV (April 16-30).
It’s a little confusing, sure, but Microsoft has made it even more worthwhile by making the Xbox 360 freebies playable on the Xbox One, so owners of the latter are effectively getting four free games.
Also, they’re free games. What’s to complain about that?
