Microsoft's Games With Gold initiative will bring two more free games to Xbox Live Gold members in May, the first of which will be available tomorrow.

From May 1 through May 15, Dust: An Elysian Tail will be a free download for Gold members. The Xbox Live Arcade game was released in August 2012 and remained a 360 exclusive until last May, when it was released on PC. The game (regularly priced at $15) was received positively, earning a 7.0 in GameSpot's review.

Dust will be replaced on May 16 by Saints Row: The Third (regularly $20), perhaps the most acclaimed game in the Saints Row series. Originally released in November 2011, The Third's over-the-top action (not to mention its spot-on usage of Kanye West's "Power") earned it an 8.5 in GameSpot's review.

With the new month set to begin, today is your last chance to download the current free game, Deadlight.

As is the case with all Games With Gold titles, the only requirement for downloading them is that you are a current Xbox Live Gold member. Initiating the download on either game permanently adds it to your account so it can be played or downloaded again in the future, regardless of your status as an Xbox Live subscriber.

Games With Gold has, to date, been limited to Xbox 360 games, although recently promoted Head of Xbox Phil Spencer stated earlier this year that news regarding free Xbox One games should be coming soon.
