Xbox Games with Gold now a permanent promotion

Games-With-Gold-ListMicrosoft have announced that its Games with Gold promotion, which started over the summer as a limited programme, will now become a permanent promotion for all Xbox Gold members.

The promotion gives Xbox 360 gamer 2 games a month, available 1st and 16th of each month. The first game that was made available was Fable 3 and currently available is Halo 3.

Here are the key features:

  • Requires Xbox Live Gold membership
  • Two free games released per month (no additional charge or Xbox Gift Cards required).
  • Only one free game available at any given time
  • Free games available on the 1st and 16th of each month
  • Free game must be downloaded during the offer period
  • Games can be kept forever, even if your Xbox Live Gold membership expires
  • Once downloaded for free, games can be redownloaded at any point in the future at no charge
  • Games with Gold is currently announced to run only on Xbox 360

The games that have been released so far with the service are

  • Halo 3
  • Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes
  • Rainbow Six: Vegas
  • Magic the Gathering 2013
  • Dead Rising 2 (including Case Zero DLC)
  • Crackdown
  • Assassin’s Creed 2
  • Defence Grid: The Awakening
  • Fable 3

No announcement has been made by Microsoft if the service will come to Xbox One owners but seeing that this service is supposed to counter balance Playstation Plus, I’m guessing Xbox One gamer will also get the service.
