Xbox Live Gold members can now download Metal Gear Solid V and Vanquish for free through the Games with Gold program. Each month four games are discounted across Xbox One and Xbox 360 and the middle of May brings a great pair of titles thanks to the inclusion of Metal Gear. You can download Metal Gear Solid V on Xbox One while Vanquish can be downloaded for the Xbox 360, though it can still be played on an Xbox One because it is backward compatible.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was the last title that Hideo Kojima worked on prior to his departure from Konami. The gameplay and story, set before the events of the original game, received high praise from gamers and critics alike, though some believed that certain plot points did not receive the attention they deserved. Vanquish is a third-person shooter developed by PlatinumGames that takes place in the near future on Earth where resources have become scarce.
Metal Gear Solid V is available for free until June 15 on Xbox One. Vanquish, on the other hand, will only be free until the end of the month on May 31.
If you have a Gold membership, be sure to check out these games. You can’t go wrong when they’re free. And you might discover a game you like that you would have otherwise passed on.
