Now Playing: June 2018 Xbox One And 360 Free Games With Gold Announced

It looks like June 2018's free Games With Gold lineup has been revealed, at least for one part of the world. A post on the German version of the Xbox Wire reveals that Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia, Smite Gold Bundle, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, and Lego Indiana Jones 2: The New Adventures will be free at different points in the month. [Update: Microsoft has confirmed June's Games With Gold lineup consists of the aforementioned games.]

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia is part of the Chronicles trilogy of 2.5D side-scrolling platformers; it is free on Xbox One June 1-30. The other free Xbox One game is the Smite Gold Bundle, which packs in extra content for the free game such as 20 more gods and other items such as skins; it will be free on Xbox One June 16-July 15.

The free Xbox 360 Games With Gold titles for June are Sega's pretty great arcade racing game Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed (June 1-15) and the delightful adventure game Lego Indiana Jones 2: The New Adventures (June 16-30). Both games play on Xbox One through backwards compatibility.

Given that there are only a few days left in May, we expect Microsoft to make a global Games With Gold announcement very soon. Keep checking back for more.

Whatever the case, now is a good time to grab the remaining free Games With Gold titles from May, which include Super Mega Baseball 2 and Vanquish. One of May's games, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, will remain free on Xbox One through June 15.

Tried a demo of Smite. Wasn't worth the money, but free is good. Already have Sonic on Vita and Steam,s o no need for a third. Otherwise I'd take it too. Bit burned out on Lego games for now. Not really an Assassin's Creed fan so hard pass on the spinoff. But a game's a game. Plus at month six I've justified the price of admission. Definitely got $60 worth of games.

The free Xbox 360 games are NOT $60 a year (or £40 in my native UK), they are free. Once you redeem them they are your's for good, whether you have Live or not. Only Xbox One games on GWG need an active sub.

The path to finding Sonic & Friends on XBL 360 was labrinthyian

@restatbonfire: Because he doesn't realize that the cost for Gold before these games was $60 and he wants to argue semantics.

Wow-- absolutely garbage month. An embarrassment compared to PS+.

I was just complimenting XBox Live Gold for their recent offerings and saying how i thought they had been keeping PS+ on their toes.......

Then this happens.

Another AC spin off game-- i didnt like the first two...they gave us at least one of them....maybe both......

And possibly the worst thing ever revealed for one of the monthly console services--- currency for a F2P game.

Thats just painfully inadequate.

The 360 games are both fine but not why I have an Xbox One. I think they are on my shelf already anyway.

I gotta think Microsoft can do better than this......

Absolutely awful month. Won’t bother downloading any of these. Oh well, at least games pass is still very worth while.

@joe_b1_kenobi: I guess you not a racing fan or you just been a Troll, because Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a great game and is one of those games that is good and has nothing to do with Nintendo or Mario Kart. The Sonic all stars racing series were very good and that's why there have been rumors going around that we might see an official announcement at E3 for a new game in the series. Even the Lego games are always good games as well.

@angrycreep: yup just what I want to play on the most powerful console in the world..360 games..well done ms.

@vapidwolf: I'm guessing you were pretty quiet last month when they gave us MGSV; phantom pain and Vanquish for free.

Were you whinging about the poor GWG games then? No - though not. People will definitely be less impressed this month but let's get this into perspective for a free games service shall we?

@vapidwolf: You don't have to play anything that you don't want to play is just an option that PS4 is not giving you unless you willing to pay and give Sony your money. I have my fingers cross for E3 and all 3 platforms announcements

I like all of these except for Smite. I usually don't touch online-only games due to my unreliable internet in my area.

Not a good month, but hey at least we get a few possibly good Xbox 360 games, and the ability to breath a sigh of relief that we won't be getting any more Assassins Creed Chronicles games... hopefully.

OK, I'm a bit confused because you call it Lego Indian Jones 2 The New Adventures but when I played it, I could have sworn it was called Lego Indiana Jones 2 The Adventure Continues. And your link points to Lego Indiana Jones The Original Adventures so that's no help.

@bayernshark: is that your argument? We've been paying for xbox live since OG xbox, they added in GWG years later. I just find it funny people complain about free things.

They've been crushing it lately so I'll just say "Meh, oh well" and move on. Still have dozens more hours of MGSV to play!

@djwood84:

Yep, i can't believe they made that game free. But even the old original Xbox titles are pretty well done. I bought one of them, and it's full HD and remastered. Great stuff.

@jagdedge124: I never let go of my copies of Morrowind, Kotor 1 and 2, Jade Empire, Fusion Frenzy, Destroy All Humans... I agree, being able to play them in full HD with improved textures and draw distance is amazing! I do love this system, it's just I love it for the same reasons I love my PS3 fat!

I'd get the AC, Sonic and Lego game. Not a bad month at all IMO.

Usually this time of year we get good games, but all of these are either bad or average.

Alot of Sega games lately...i wonder if that has something to do with Sega visiting MS HQ few weeks back.

Vanquish got BC and a GWG,Shining Force Refrain is announced for Xbox,Sega Genesis Collection aswell and now the Sonic racer as a GWG.

More to come?

Another Assassins Creed Game? Can't we receive something different? We keep getting games from this series over and over.

Seeing Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed makes me happy. Been meaning to getting that game but just never got around to it. I really don’t have any issue with them giving out dlc for games myself.
