Now Playing: Xbox - May 2018 Games with Gold

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

May is officially underway, which means the first half of this month's Games with Gold lineup has arrived. Xbox Live Gold subscribers can now download two new games across Xbox One and Xbox 360, with another pair of freebies set to follow partway through the month.

On the Xbox One side, Gold members can grab the newly released Super Mega Baseball 2 at no charge. Like the first Super Mega Baseball, the game features deep baseball sim mechanics beneath its cartoony visuals, and this time around, players can compete against each other online. This month's first free 360 title, meanwhile, is the Sega classic Streets of Rage. That game is also playable on Xbox One thanks to backwards compatibility.

Super Mega Baseball 2 will remain free to download throughout the entire month, while Streets of Rage will return to its regular price on May 15. Gold members can also still download one holdover from April's Games with Gold lineup: Assassin's Creed Syndicate, the 2015 stealth-action game set in Victorian London. That likewise returns to its normal price on May 15.

Beginning May 16, Microsoft will offer two more free games for Gold members. Xbox One owners will be able to grab Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, the latest mainline installment in the popular stealth franchise. Platinum Games' cult favorite shooter Vanquish will be the second free 360 title offered this month.

Both Metal Gear Solid V and Vanquish will remain free to download through the end of May, and the latter is also backwards compatible with Microsoft's newer console, giving Xbox One owners four new freebies to grab this month. You can find the full list of May's free Games with Gold lineup below.

Streets of Rage is still awesome after all this time. Everyone should grab it.

Streets of Rage -- classic fun!

Vanquish was amazing, but I already own it.

Would rather play some terrible baseball game than any fkn MGS game. "Sit and wait through a 30min cutscene with characters you care absolutely nothing about, so you can play a stealth game." No thanks. The only time I enjoy stealth is when it's entirely optional. Otherwise it's just waiting.

@Pyrosa: You may actually want to give MGS 5 a shot. It is nothing like other MGS games. It starts out slow for the first hour and then becomes an open sandbox more or less. Stealth is quite optional and I usually just rely on tools, traps, machine guns, and air support to get through missions. The story is terrible but they at least don't hammer you over the head with 30 minute cutscenes and long radio chatter in this one.

@cugabuh: stealth is optional but you will not get the s rating on the missions to get the best unlockables on the game like the raiden cyber suit and the battery powered stealth camo. With both

@Pyrosa: ugh. Me too. Stealth has to be optional because I'm a "guns blazin" guy lol.
