More Free Xbox One Games With Gold For May Now Available

Metal Gear Solid V and Vanquish are now free to download for Gold members.


We've reached the middle of the month, which means the second half of May's free Games with Gold are now available to download. From now until the end of the month, Xbox Live Gold members can grab two more titles for Xbox One and Xbox 360 at no charge, and they're both certainly worth a download if you don't have them yet.

On Xbox One, subscribers can get the critically acclaimed Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Originally released in 2015, The Phantom Pain is the latest mainline installment in the Metal Gear Solid series, and the final entry overseen by Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima. GameSpot's Peter Brown called it "undoubtedly the best Metal Gear game there is" and awarded it a rare 10/10 in our Metal Gear Solid V review.

This month's second free Xbox 360 game is Vanquish, the cult favorite shooter from Bayonetta developer Platinum Games. In our original Vanquish review, GameSpot awarded the title a 9/10 and called it "one of the most gleeful and memorable experiences" of its time. Like other titles offered through Games with Gold, Vanquish is also playable on Xbox One thanks to backwards compatibility.

Vanquish will remain free to download through the end of the month, while Metal Gear Solid V will be available until June 15. Gold members can also still grab the recently released Super Mega Baseball 2, which is free to download throughout the entire month. You can find the full list of May's free Games with Gold below.
