May 2016 Games With Gold

As April begins to draw to a close, we know what’s coming up: a new set of Games With Gold titles for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. This time around we’ll be getting nearly US$60 in free games, with Xbox One owners able to play the 360 titles through backwards compatibility. To learn more about Games with Gold and all four titles for May, check out Major Nelson’s blog.

Xbox 360 owners can look forward to the racer GRID 2 from May 1 untilĀ  May 15. For the rest of the month, they can check out the brick breaking Peggle. As always, both games are also available for download and play on the Xbox One through backwards compatibility.
