For all qualifying Xbox Live Gold members, Microsoft is giving away two free Xbox 360 games each month for the rest of the year as part of Games with Gold program. Each game will be available to download only for a limited time, so grab them before they’re gone and keep them no matter what. This month, the following games will be available for free.
- “Saints Row: The Third” ($19.99 ERP): Available from May 16-31 – And of course, if you’re in for something a little bit grittier, Volition’s critically acclaimed “Saints Row: The Third” might be just the kind of raw, hilarious, and over-the-top open-world adventure you need, when it blows into town (or at least, Games with Gold) on May 16. As the leader of the Third Street Saints, it’s up to you to lead your gang to victory in the crime-ridden city of Steelport, get rich, trick yourself out with all kinds of ridiculous weapons and gear, and cause all the collateral damage (and probably more).
- “Dust: An Elysian Tail” ($14.99 ERP): Available from May 1-16 – “Dust: An Elysian Tail” comes from independent developer Humble Hearts, and it is a beautiful, breathtakingly animated love letter to 2D sidescrolling action-adventure games. In the land of Falana, the titular protagonist discovers a mysterious sword that alters his life and sets him on the road to becoming a hero. If fast-paced action, exploration, and seriously good-looking environments are your thing, you’ll want to pick up “Dust: An Elysian Tail” when it makes its Games with Gold debut on May 1.
