Free Xbox One and Xbox 360 Games With Gold for June 2016

Four freebies on the way.


Microsoft today announced June 2016's lineup of Games With Gold titles.

As usual, four games are being offered to Xbox Live Gold members across Xbox One and Xbox 360. On Xbox One, subscribers can pick up Goat Simulator and The Crew, while Xbox 360 users will be able to grab Super Meat Boy and XCOM Enemy Unknown, both of which also play on Xbox One through backwards compatibility.

While you wait for June 2016's titles to arrive, be sure to grab the remaining May 2016 titles before it's too late. As for the other side of the fence, Sony has yet to announce June PlayStation Plus free game lineup, though that should be coming soon, considering the start of June is now just days away.

You can also check out the newest lineup of Xbox Live weekly Deals With Gold offers here.

Xbox One:

  • Costume Quest 2 (normally $15) -- May 16-June 15
  • Goat Simulator (normally $10) -- June 1-30
  • The Crew (normally $30) -- June 16-July 15

Xbox 360:

  • Super Meat Boy (normally $15) -- June 1-15
  • XCOM: Enemy Unknown (normally $40) -- June 16-30

Good month. Xcom is one of my favorite games and now I get to play it on the Xbox One. Hopefully soon they'll add "Enemy Within," too.

Another mediocre month.

Wow! Thanks MS - this is a pretty amazing month. Can't believe all the doomsayers below; "it's not the best" "not quite as rubbish as it usually is". Jesus. Lighten up! These are free! Even if you read some reviews about, say, Goat, just download it and try it...some of these weird looking games may be ones that you don't know you will enjoy until you try it and then go "wow - this is great"..then play it for 10 hours straight...for FREE! 2 months ago I got SSOD from GwG - and loved it - played it straight through and have no doubt I'll play it again.

Never had any interest in Goat but will def d/l it and give it a crack. XCOM EU for me was one of the very best games on the 360 - epic game. Super meatboy is a very simplistic arcade game, but gets great reviews so pretty sure it will keep me interested for a couple of hours / days. The Crew I didn't bother with, just because I'm not really into MP driving games and it seemed to be based around that. Having said that I love driving games (Seb Loeb / Project Cars) and have a Playseat driving set set up so will definitely give this a go.

Last month may have been weak - but why is everyone always complaining? THEY ARE FREE! If you like them / think you might like them, download and play. If you know for a fact you have no interest in any of the free games, then don't d/l them. It's not difficult. You're no worse off.

Anyway - enjoy (if you allow yourself to).

You guys think The Crew will come with Wild Run? or at least a discount on the update?

Avatar image for sladakrobot

@Attitude2000: I observed that after GwGs which have season passes or DLCs,one or two weeks later these will mostly appear as deals of the week.
Not always but mostly.

Been wanting to play Goat Simulator , so yay

@voreo: it's a ridiculously fun, goofy game.

Avatar image for fanboyman

Not bad this month (not bad at all) happy to finally get Super Meat Boy, refused to pay up for it after the $10 early adopters discount expired.

Avatar image for jako998

think ill try out The Crew. seems like a good deal

Avatar image for SkytheWiz1

Lackluster, but certainly not the worst month.

Avatar image for galva86

I was about to get xcom, too bad i already have goat simulator

Avatar image for domiddian

Meh. Xcom I already got for free on PS Plus years ago and, well I'm not interested in anything else, although I might try Meatboy. A bust for me, like last month.

Avatar image for mithrava

@domiddian: Super Meat Boy is a great game! Not worth the asking price of $15, but a great game nonetheless! You should try it.

Xcom!!! Time to renew my gold :P

Avatar image for rasterror

Great deal.

Unlike most months, not completely disappointed by this list. Thanks Microsoft.

I never play Super Meat Boy so I'll just go ahead and download that game when it's ready.

Sweet list of games for June, better than May.

Avatar image for iammcgruber

I already own XCOM but its nice it'll be BC now so i can finally finish it. Definitely getting the Crew though despite the mediocre reviews...can't beat free.

Avatar image for Archangel3371

Pretty nice selection. I'll be trying out all 4 of these games.

Avatar image for snugglebear

Goat Simulator is mine! Hells yes.

Avatar image for i_am_kesmonkey

I was a little excited about The Crew, so I checked out a few reviews. I'm glad I did. Now I know not to waste my time by even trying it.

Avatar image for ltjohnnyrico

@i_am_kesmonkey: It's free so you can afford to make up your own mind .. no ?

Avatar image for b00me

@i_am_kesmonkey: Remember when you use to form your own opinions instead of letting other people dictate what you will enjoy or experience. Give the game a try, it's free, you might end up enjoying it.

Avatar image for ltjohnnyrico

@b00me: Couldn't have said it better myself !!

Avatar image for MrFreehuggs

@i_am_kesmonkey: I think you're placing too much trust in other people's opinions. It's no additional cost, why not try it?

Avatar image for suicidesn0wman

@i_am_kesmonkey: It wasn't that bad, average at best. I've got a few friends who play the game all the time.

Avatar image for Aleperez75

I've been wanting to play Xcom for so long. This is great. Great month overall.

Avatar image for Myron117

Pretty good month i must say!

Avatar image for artemis-v

I'm checking out The Crew, for sure.

Avatar image for Pr0ving4Gr0undz

Not bad. Own all on pc but haven't touched any of them. May play them on the Xbox.

Avatar image for sladakrobot

Sorry but even for free,no goats allowed on my X1 lol

Avatar image for ltjohnnyrico

@sladakrobot: Not even a little Goat ?

Avatar image for davillain-

@sladakrobot: You can always just eat the Goat. I eat a Goat before and it taste like Chicken :P

Avatar image for moose-fitz

Would rather have The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. Turn based games are meh.

Avatar image for nazart81

Oh yes! Really nice selection for this month

Avatar image for xantufrog

Some good fun game options there

Avatar image for logangta5

The Crew, Yes!

Avatar image for i_am_kesmonkey

@logangta5: Really? Haven't you read any reviews?

Avatar image for ltjohnnyrico

@i_am_kesmonkey: Have you played the Game and made up your own mind ? seeing as its free I don't see the harm in that !!

Avatar image for hacker_fc

@i_am_kesmonkey: The Crew is underrated, I already own the game

Avatar image for logangta5

@i_am_kesmonkey: I played the Beta and for $0 i think is a great deal.
