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.

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 **** microshit

<< LINK REMOVED >> 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.

They are rentals on playstation as you can't play them if you drop,from plus where as on xbox live you have the game for being on gold but if you drop from gold you can still play them thus ms,are giving the game away free with no,extra cost

<< LINK REMOVED >> still cost money to get the free game on m$. I prefer the Sony way if I don't have an active membership go ahead and block it. Rentals or not Sony gives out nearly 20 games for free to plus members, 3 free changing monthly on ps3 1 on ps4 and 1on ps vita. I guess you get quality free games with the cheaper plus honestly Sony didn't have to do that since they give us new game timed trials already. Do you get timed trials? Lol Sony kills xbone it's not even close just look at the pre-orders.

Oh Jesus. I thought the games could not get any worse, but Iron Brigade is the first free game I literally don't have the interest to waste HD space, and I have 100 plus GBs of free space. keflings looks okay, but dam where are the actual games, not this xbox live junk. And if they were going to give these indie games at least give people some decent ones like Blade Kitten, Limbo, Bastion, etc.

You stupid fanboy don't you know about the shiny spantravision Kinect camera it could sell for $300 alone but no we are throwing in a drm 720p upscaling pay service for only an extra $200. By the way add me cause I am with you ps4 it is.

People banging on about ps plus cancal your subcribtion and tell me the games are free then and realize that sony are giving you nothing and you are just renting

<< LINK REMOVED >> I don't get involved in these fanboy wars but I will say this. I have both LIVE and PS+… and there is no comparison between the 2. PS+ kills LIVE with the free game offers. Sony's offer is similar to say Netfix. You pay your subscription and get to use the service. Call it whatever you want… renting blah blah blah. PS+ subscribers have been given a ridiculous amount of value with the free games to play them and move on to the next one. And why would anyone choose to cancel their subscription and expect to keep all the free games? When you cancel Netflix, they don't keep sending you DVD's to watch son. You're argument is beyond weak and reeks of MS fanboy.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Because when you cancel gold you get to keep the games! PS+ is a shitty rental service, if that is what I wanted I would get gamefly that has much better games to rent.

@wickedsc300 @ohjtbehaaave @jtthegame316 The problem with LIVE is 80% of the time you could care less about the free game MS gives you. The amount of excellent, quality, free games I've gotten for PS3 and Vita is beyond staggering for $50 bucks a year. PS+ is the best deal in gaming.

<< LINK REMOVED >> doesn't matter, it's still $50 a year for $500+ worth a games plus more benefits. A damn good deal. Compared to the crap XB is offering and still making us pay for Gold to use Netflix... what a joke.

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen (PS3)
Ibb & obb (PS3)
Resogun (PS4)
Contrast (PS4)
Binary Domain (PS3)
Oddworld: Strangers Wrath (PS Vita)
Soul Sacrifice (PS Vita)

<< LINK REMOVED >> The key is they are giving away games so its a bonus no matter what they give away. they don't have to give away free games. i am glad they do though as i am enjoying clash of herose and defence grid. i even like fable 3 up until i finished it

Why bother giving free games if they are games that are old, outdated, and ones that a majority of users already own? I'd rather not have it at all then keep getting crappy games each month.

How about a $10-15 credit to buy what we want, most of these games are owned or dis-owned.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Yeah, a CHOICE would be nice. Instead of giving us 2 crap games every month (Halo 3 was alright, had some fun hours with that) I would like to get just ONE game of my choice for free...I understand they can't just give out the newest most amazing games for free but maybe everything that's older than 3 months...that would be a great service IMO. One can only dream.

Thanks for nothing, Microsoft. I have an idea for December, just give me a DEAD RAT to play with...

It's almost offensive how bad this games with gold service is...makes PSN+ look like the best thing ever.

Unless you're horribly strapped for hard drive space, why would anybody pass over free games? God forbid you actually find something you LIKE.
