Xbox Live Gold subscribers can now pick up a free copy of Tequila Works' 2012 survival horror zombie platformer game Deadlight on Xbox 360. It is free as part of Microsoft's Games with Gold promotion, replacing Hitman: Absolution, which was free April 1-15.

GameSpot gave Deadlight a 6.5 score upon release in 2012. Reviewer Chris Watters said, "Deadlight draws you in with its rich, pervasive atmosphere, but doesn't give you much to do once you're there."

Microsoft's Games with Gold promotion was announced last year during the company's E3 media briefing. The program offers up two free games per month to Xbox Live Gold ($60/year) subscribers. A similar service will be offered on Xbox One, but Microsoft hasn't yet said when this program will begin or what games will be offered.

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.
