Games with Gold for April had the most impressive selection we’ve seen so far. It featured The Wolf Among Us, Dead Space, Saints Row IV and, our pick of the bunch, Sunset Overdrive. We knew that Microsoft would have a near impossible task to beat April’s games and the selection for May is pretty underwhelming in comparison.

On Xbox One in May players can grab themselves a copy of the brilliant adventure Defense Grid 2 (read our review). Then from May 16th – June 15th Xbox One players can grab themselves a copy of Costume Quest 2.

On Xbox 360 (and Xbox One via Backward Compatibility) players can grab themselves a copy of Peggle until May 15th. This will then be switched out for GRID 2.

Remember that even if you own a physical copy it’s still worth downloading a game as you will then no longer need the disc. You could then pass your physical copy on to a friend or trade it in.

EF will bring you news of the Games with Gold titles for June towards the end of May. We’re hoping Microsoft are saving something special as it’s E3 month. In the meantime don’t forget to grab yourself copies of the games for April and be sure to pick up the offerings for May as soon as they become available.

Even if you don’t own both an Xbox 360 and Xbox One you can still add all the games to your Xbox Live account.

What do you think of the selection of games for May? Let us know in the comments below!
