Microsoft announces its free Games with Gold downloads for November

A World of Keflings and Iron Brigade.

Microsoft has announced that free copies of A World of Keflings and Iron Brigade will be distributed in November as part of its ongoing Games with Gold promotion.

A World of Keflings, Ninjabee's kingdom-crafting adventure, will be available to download for free to Xbox Live Gold members from November 1 through November 15. A World of Keflings will replace Halo 3, which is October's second game.

Double Fine's third-person tower defence title Iron Bridge (formerly Trenched) will take over from November 16 through November 30.

As part of the Games with Gold promotion, Microsoft will give away one free game every two weeks to Xbox Live Gold subscribers. The scheme was originally scheduled to last to the end of 2013, but Microsoft has now continued it indefinitely.

This month games are far out of the radar. Why not some old games that people are care to play or worth collecting.

Well I'm glad these games are free. I can live with out having new games that recently came out as free cause I like to give where credit is due. Sucks that I already have a work of keflings but the other hand ill download and play. All of you guys are in need of a lesson in appreciating with what you have

Sweet, I've always wanted to play World of Kefflings. Seems like a good time-killer.

I liked getting halo 3, fable 3, and rainbow six for free but I guess I am going to forgo this month. Why give out a game that no one wants for free, no one is going to get it even if it is free.

 I appreciated Halo 3 and Rainbow 6, but most of these free titles are not very good. What's the point of giving out free games, if no one wants them? This would be amazing if they were giving out better titles!

I hope it is not region lock, i was not able to get both Halo 3 and Rainbow 6. When i contacted MS support they were only apologetic since they could not give any other game in replace of the region locked ones. Never had this problem with PS plus. Come on XBOX you can do better, not getting any reason to put down the PS3 rite now. I am also taking this as a sign of the future therfore XB1 is on the back burner for now.

So, where are those happy fools, defending this....thing, saying "At least it's free" !?

Poor offerings, as expected, but at least I I finally don't already have the games.

I'm busy playing Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Remember Me for free from PS Plus at the moment. Is it really rental? Yeh, but I'm gunna have a plus membership for the next 5 years anyway to play online on the PS4. I get to play these GOOD, fairly new games for a very long time as a side bonus to what I'm actually paying for. MS need to step up their game, their included games offer is extremely shit.. it's better than nothing though I suppose.

I'm getting both consoles btw, so this isn't a hate comment.. it's just the truth.

@darkrayne remember me is free on PS+ already? didn't that come out a couple months ago? Wow, step it up MS

@darkrayne Not quite rental actually, you do get to keep your free games, just can't play them if you take a break from the service. But they will still be there once you re-activate.

I want deathtank free next so that there are some players online.

So in the end they ain't really free after all? Seeing how you still have to pay a Gold subscription to download it.

mrdouglas99
mrdouglas99

@Sundberg_man Yes and no actually, once downloaded the games are still there on your XBox console and can be played even if you cancel your Gold Subscription. While on the PSN+ you do need to have an active subscription to be able to access your downloaded games. They won't disappear and will still be there to play once you re-activate though.

Sundberg_man

@mrdouglas99 But you still had to pay a subscription fee for atleast a month so technically you paid for it in a sense.

MS are too cheap to give they'er subscribers better games, i feel bad for xbox guys, cause they have to deal with microsofts crap.

JachAnen

@bluebird08 It's free. So we can't complain. And good games have been given to us and know nothing of these two games so I don't know if they are good or not. You actually just sound jealous, but you are probably going to make a comment in order to prove you're not, which is clearly not true.

You guys should make a comment section for children to give the trolls somewhere to post.  I have both systems and love the fact that they both are doing this.  They aren't going to give the same games.  Right now Sony is giving better games and also more games, so.  Don't download free games if you don't want them.

WOW, talk about shitty games.  This "free game" thing is pointless.  Only Dead Rising has been the good game so far. AC 2 wasn't too bad but it was a 4 year old game and not even close to being the freshest in the franchise.

@berethor099 One of the best from the Ac franchise though. Besides the sequel brotherhood(imo)which just built upon the game anyway.

Hey Sony fanboys. Xb live never lagged, leaked like pen, sir.

It is more expensive but better.

@Ayebang never lagged, wtf are you talking what. What does it even mean? Lagging is due to internet speed and connection quality (ping). Good god, wish I had shotgun and made the world a better place :\

@Ayebang Bitter about your shitty games much?

Meanwhile we get to watch Netflix/YouTube/Hulu and pretty much everything else on the internet without paying an extra $50 or $60

I like all the Sony ponies talking up their rental service!  If I wanted to rent games I would get Gamefly where I can rent exactly the games I want and much newer ones.

@wickedsc300 if I want to rent an internet browser I will go to an internet café thanks Xbot

@wickedsc300 @tom2750  And in the end what difference does that make? Can still download and play PS Plus games 10 years from now. All you need is a Plus sub.

Maybe, it's time to grow up and acknowledge the qualities of both services, and stop being a drooling fanboy incessant on bashing one side or the other. Intelligent adults don't sit around gaming websites, engaging in this "my system is better"-"no my system is better!"-"no mine is, nurr nurr" bullshit.

tom2750
tom2750

@wickedsc300 can you rent over 60 games a year for only $50 a year? nup didn't think so and atleast we actually get good games and new games youse Xbots get pathetic games its an embarrassment

wickedsc300
wickedsc300

@tom2750 @wickedsc300 Internet browser?  Grasping at straws huh?  I thought you all just cared about games who cars about a browser?  lol.  As far as games go you rent them, MS gives us games.  You know that thing people were bitching about with the XB1?  lol.  It seems Sony is the one who takes their games away when a service ends hahahaha.

tom2750
tom2750

ahh Microsoft giving amazing games to there customers for free oh wait that's Sony hahahahhahaha PS+ is ten times better then this piece of shit we get more then twice as many free games a year as youse will and we have been getting these games for a couple of years now and not only do we get more then double the amount almost all are pretty new and they are all great and highly rated games suck shit Xbots and call PS+ a renting service well then by your logic Xbox 360 doesn't support online multiplayer you have to rent it along with basic things like an internet browser or the use of Netflix a service you already have to pay a separate fee for already hahah fuck microshit

tom2750
tom2750

@wickedsc300 @tom2750 haha and on the Xbox you have to pay just to rent the ability to use your games online multiplayer mode plus youse cant even use Netflix or an internet browser or most other simple features without renting them Xbox live is the biggest renting service on the planet

tom2750
tom2750

@wickedsc300 @tom2750 the difference is next gen youse Xbots have to rent what we get already on the console with the only exception being online multiplayer and we get tons of highly rated new games as well hahah 10 times better then Xbox live hahahaha

tom2750
tom2750

@wickedsc300 @tom2750 no its not we don't have to rent our internet browser or pay a second fee just to use Netflix or rent our DVR features but one the Xbox one nearly all the features need to be rented haha I am pretty shore youse even need to rent those pathetic TV features the Xbone has

@wickedsc300 @tom2750 i would rather have rentals then have things i pay for put behind another paywall stop using Rental as an excuse you guys have to pay to use what you already paid for

@tom2750 Surely you have something better you could be doing, right? RIGHT? It's obvious from seeing your post that you're a very closed minded individual. They both have their pro's and con's.
