At E3 this week, Microsoft announced a new benefit for its Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Every member will receive two free Xbox 360 games until the release of the new Xbox One console. The first two games that will be available starting in July are Assassin’s Creed II and Halo 3. But there’s also a bonus game – Fable III – that’s available for download now, so you have something fun to do over the weekend!
Get Free Xbox Games
To get your free copy of Fable III, fire up your Xbox 360 and go to Games > Browse Games > Free with Gold.
Remember that these games are quite large. Fable III is a 5.61 GB download. If you have the Xbox 360 4 GB model, check out my article on how to add a 16 GB flash drive for extra space.
These games are free and yours to keep. So even if you’ve played them before, or consider them “old titles” you might as well snatch them up.
If I go purchase a gold membership right now will I be able to download this game and the rest that are released?
I think so yeah. They will be offering 2 free games a month for Gold members until November when the Xbox One is released.
It would be cool if they extended it beyond that, but MS hasn’t made any official announcement about that.
