Games for Gold schedule promises free games twice a month

, | Games


Microsoft has published its Games for Gold schedule and the news is good. From now until the end of the year, Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to download – and keep – a free game on the 1st and the 16th of each month! We like free, right?

The current game available in the Games for Gold program is Fable III. At the end of the month, Fable III will no longer be available for free, but one of the July selections will take its place. The games being offered in July will be Halo 3 and Assassin’s Creed 2.

Unlike the free games offered with PSN Plus, the Games for Gold program allows members to keep the downloaded games even if their subscription lapses. Once it’s added to your Live account, the game is yours to download again and play at a later date.
