The Games with Gold wiki last edited by bobafettjm on 07/01/16 10:04AM View full history


The Xbox Live Games with Gold program offers three free games per month to users who have Xbox Live Gold accounts.

For Xbox One games there is one new game per month and they typically are available free for two months, then return to their original price. This hasn't been a consistent rule however, as on some months two games are newly made available, removing one of the games after a single month.

For Xbox 360 games there are two games per month, one coming available on the 1st, and the other on the 16th. In this case, each game is available free until the next game is available, then returning to its original price.

The promotion extends across both the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One, with different games available for each system during each month. Although users remain owners of any games downloaded through the promotion on the Xbox 360 regardless of their Xbox Live membership package, games downloaded through the Xbox One can only be played with an account linked to a Gold membership.
