Xbox Gold Free Games For May + Discounts On Titles For This Week Announced

Like every month, this month’s Xbox Gold free games for May under the Games with Gold program have been announced. As usual, four free games are announced – two for Xbox One and two for Xbox 360. Thanks to backwards compatibility, players can enjoy two free Xbox 360 games on Xbox One. So Xbox One owners, as usual, get four free games for the month.


Xbox Gold free games announced for Xbox One and Xbox 360 players for the month of May 2016 are as follows:

  1. Defense Grid 2: Available throughout the month (Xbox One)
  2. Costume Quest 2: Available from May 16th to June 15th (Xbox One)
  3. Grid 2: Available from May 01 to May 15th (Xbox 360)
  4. Peggle: Available from May 16th to May 31st (Xbox 360)

As Major Nelson on his blog has mentioned, the titles are available “as free downloads for qualifying Xbox Live Gold members in all markets where Xbox Live is available. Some regions may offer different titles depending on market availability.”

Other than the above Xbox Gold free games for the month of May, Major Nelson has also announced discounts on a few titles that are valid until 02nd May. Listed below are the games and discounts:
