Xbox Live Games with Gold for May 2016

Runtime: 1:50    Author: xbox    Category: Featurette

Microsoft has unveiled the games Xbox Live Gold members can expect to find in their libraries next month – covering everything from tower defence, to lite-RPGs, and racing sims.

For Xbox One owners, you’ll get your usual two titles. Available for all of May is Defense Grid 2 – a tower defence game that forces you to think and adapt on the fly, as you deal with its ever-changing dynamic content. On May 16 to June 15 there’s also Costume Quest 2 – a cutesy, lightweight RPG that sees players save Halloween.

For those of you still booting up your Xbox 360 – or using the One’s Backward Compatability – there’s a pair of games too. Available from May 1 to 15 is GRID 2, which sees players take on a multitude of racing disciplines as they rise to the top. From May 16 to 31 is Peggle, the ball-bouncing puzzler that spans over 50 levels.

If you have an active Xbox Live Gold subscription, you’ll get access to these games as they roll out.

Not that I'm one to complain about "free" games with my sub, but compared to this months lineup it's a bit... well... stink

I can't say I'm blown away by these games, but free is nice, and I'm still busy playing Fallout 4 and Halo 5.

I've wanted to play costume quest 2 for a while. That's one game I don't need to wait for the next steam sale to get so I'm happy.

Peggle is great when you want to pass some time with a simple game

It was on the NZ store when I looked earlier so I guess it is.

Well looks like nothing for me this coming month. I've only just gotten Forza 6 so won't get Grid, have Costume Quest & Peggle so the only positive was when I read DG might not be available here but then I saw it is lol.

Only Grid 2 interests me at cover value, but there have been quite a few GWG games that has suprised me when I have given them a chance. I think I would jump in and give these ones a go to see if these suprise me also.
