Microsoft announces its free Games with Gold downloads for November

A World of Keflings and Iron Brigade.

No Caption Provided

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.

When we at PS Plus are getting Metal Gear Rising, Far Cry 3, Dragons Dogma, Remeber ME (all of those to downloads for FREE)... M$ is giving their beloved customers middle finger. How come Xbox is still selling so well? Wake up people! M$ is ripping you off!!!

<< LINK REMOVED >> You don't own any of those games, they aren't given to you for free. It's all factored in to the cost of your membership.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Because people don't buy Xbox or subscribe to Live for free games. Not sure what the numbers are but I believe they had at one point 44+ million subscribers before they ever had the free games promotion. Besides, that's the one thing everyone forgets is that this is a promotion, not a built-in benefit of Xbox Live Gold. That's totally different from PS+ where the free games/rentals whatever you want to call them are a core part of the subscription. Free games are not part of the XBL Gold. Currently they are just a promotion that is running for an indefinite amount of time.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Literally the only purpose of PS+ is a) Games B) Cloud saves. Without + you do NOT get cloud saves.

It's not even a service. It's trash.

You are paying to rent those games don't actually own them....once your sub runs out, you can't play those games anymore until you pay more money to get PSN+ again.

People these days thinking they are being given free shit, when said free said no longer works as son as you stop paying.

<< LINK REMOVED >> I do agree that PS+ gives better games, but at least Microsoft lets you keep the games forever, Playstation takes them away the moment your PS+ membership expires.

Which they don't have to worry about as long as they keep feeding us great games.

They should make Fallout 3 free as well as it's addons that would be awesome because that game is so good and very few people i know have played it.

Avatar image for Grenadeh

<< LINK REMOVED >> Yea it's a surprise they haven't actually offered FO3 on either service, undeniably one of the best games of this generation.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> agreed... still like to play it sometimes... i like the whole atmosphere of the game...

WOW! That's a treat! I'm regretting now I got PS Plus: Last month we got FarCry 3 and Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, now we getting Metal Gear Rising and Remember Me. How come Microsoft is giving their customers such a great games! Keflings... WOW.

How not to rage a consoles war when most of PS3 users see how awful M$ is treating it's constituency? Wake up people! M$ is making you agree to resell your personal date, giving no goo exclusives, make you pay for online gaming, not giving games you deserve! Come here, to warmth of PS3 exclusives and great PS Plus free game!

More bottom-of-the-barrel games?

What's next? Dig Dug? Uno?

Avatar image for gamerboy100

<< LINK REMOVED >> Uno ia actually pretty fun. Too bad very few people play it anymore...

Avatar image for Grenadeh

<< LINK REMOVED >> Hey don't talk shit about dig dug.

A World of Keflings and Iron Brigade? First they go with games that everyone already owns and now they're coming out with obscure titles that not everyone has heard of. Honestly this Games for Gold is still hopelessly outmatched by PS Plus. It would be so much better if Microsoft wasn't afraid to give away newer games to keep up with it's main competitor.

Avatar image for Grenadeh

<< LINK REMOVED >> Isn't that kind of the point? To broaden your horizons? Get these games some exposure? Introduce you to games you might not risk your own money to try?

Avatar image for deactivated-57bac25e99ee3

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> That may be so but quite a lot of consumers want something that is new and what they are accustomed to these days so the games may not do so well at all.

Avatar image for Grenadeh

@robertcain @Grenadeh True but you never know. I can't say I actually try - I have a bunch of indie games and crap I'd never intentionally buy that I got with bundles and still haven't tried them.

<< LINK REMOVED >> They have lawyers back there with someone pointing out which games they want free.. if its a top notch game.. lawyers would go "no no, that's still selling well, how about some games no one is buying atm?".

Terrible. Awful. Atrocious. Diabolical. Pathetic.

Words which perfectly sum up Microsoft.

Avatar image for Grenadeh

<< LINK REMOVED >> Yes these are words that describe the biggest software company in history aptly.

<< LINK REMOVED >> yes microsoft has ben so bad to u

Avatar image for Pyrosa

Heh... Other than the Dead Rising games (not great zombie games), I've already owned every single one of these free games. Most of them are good (sometimes great) games, at least...

For those who haven't seen World of Keflings: It's essentially a cute little micromanagement "village sim" with a good sense of humor. It's the kind of thing you play when you want to relax, like Minecraft or Terraria. If you have kids, this is a safe title for them.

Also, Iron brigade was made by double fine.

Avatar image for KliCks83

Iron Brigade is an awesome game, however I have it already, definitely bottom of the barrel, Vegas 2 would have been a better choice, also one console and one arcade would be nice, but alas can't have nice things.

At least there free, cant really complain i guess


Avatar image for Grenadeh

I would honestly rate these higher than Rainbow Six Vegas. Game is so terrible. It takes everything that Rainbow Six (PC) was, and it's like: "You guys love action shooters with enemies that literally spawn in front of you and behind your back and there are minimal tactics, right? Good we thought so."

Thanks, Ubisoft. Red Storm should burn you.
