Dark Light

July will mark the 2 year anniversary of the Games with Gold service. During this time, Microsoft has often been blamed for not offering great games or enough games through their service. Phil Spencer aims to change that however, with Xbox Live with Gold ready to go into the next gear now. Lets look at the games we have this month.

Xbox One:


Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag

Perhaps the most acclaimed game of the Assassins Creed series, Black Flag follows the adventure of Edward Kenway as he puts in double duty as a member of the Creed and a pirate of the Caribbean. The game introduced ships and naval warfare into the game, with players able to explore the vast oceans and become the scourge of the seven seas. Apart from that, the game also provides standard Assassins Creed fare tying in historical events with a fictious conspiracy theory about the Creed and the Templar.

AC Black Flag will be available for download on the Xbox One from the 1st July to 15th July 2015.


So Many Me

So Many Me, meanwhile, is a brand new puzzle platform. The hero is Filo, a green blob accompanied by several clones. He can use these clones’ special abilities to traverse the game’s many obstacles. For example, he can turn a clone into a stone block so he can be used as a stepping stone.Its cute, its sugary and its fun.

So Many Me will be available for download on your Xbox One from the 15th of July to the end of July 2015.

Xbox 360:


Plants Vs. Zombies

I would be surprised if you haven’t already played Plants Vs. Zombies on atleast one platform. This month brings the original tower defense game to the Xbox 360 owners for free. You play as the owner of a house who ise besieged by a horde of zombies. The only thing saving you is your garden full of plants with extraordinary abilities. Pea shooting pea pods, torn throwing cactus and exploding potatoes are just some of the weapons in your arsenal.

Plants Vs. Zombies will be available for download from the 1st of July to the 15th of July 2015.


Gears Of War 3

The 3rd game in the original Gears Of War trilogy, and the last one where you play as Marcus Fenix. Gears Of War 3 brings the final chapter in the Marcus’s campaign against the scourge. If you haven’t already Gears Of War 3 has to tried without exception. Excellent graphics, neat uncomplicated story and an enjoyable multiplayer makes GOW 3 a musthave for every Xbox 360 owner.

Gears Of War 3 will be building hype for the Gears Of War collection from the 15th of July till the end of the month.


Not only will this month see Xbox One owners get 2 free games instead of a single free one. July’s lineup also includes games like Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag, and Gears of War 3. Games will be available on a staggered basis, with one game available for the first 15 days of the month, and the other game for the rest of the month.

As usual Xbox 360 owners who don’t own a Xbox One just yet, will be able to add the Xbox One games to their account. So that these games will be available to them once they buy the next gen console.
