Xbox Live Gold members have become used to Microsoft announcing exclusive offers and discounts for them. Free games are another luxury. The company announces free titles for every month. As Microsoft wants more and more people to get this paid membership, the brand is always seen promoting free Xbox Live Gold games. So why are there no promotions this time?
Very few people noticed that Max: The Curse of Brotherhood was listed on the site for £0.00. Few publications wrote about the deal; no one was sure how long it would last as there was no official announcement made. About the offer, Eurogamer on its site wrote, “You can currently download 2.5D platformer Max: The Curse of Brotherhood for free on Xbox One. Microsoft hasn’t announced anything about the offer – so this may be an error, or just an extra Games with Gold freebie for Christmas.” As a confirmation, the site also posted a picture of the deal. Here it is:
But if you have a look at the site now, the game is back to £11.99. So was this an error? There was no announcement, and the price was changed within a span of few hours. Was it a surprise deal only for the ones who noticed it? Right now, it feels like an error. If you are an Xbox Live Gold member and you had spotted this free deal, let us know in the comments below whether you were able to download Max: The Curse of Brotherhood for free. Or did you get an error while downloading?
