Xbox’s free giveaway of games for those with Xbox Live Gold continues in May with three new titles and one hangover from last month. Don’t forget that April’s offerings will expire beginning on May 1st so be sure to grab them while you still can.
The May Games with Gold are:
- Pool Nation FX (Xbox One) from May 1-31
- Castlestorm: Definitive Edition (Xbox One) from May 1-31
- Mafia II (X360) from May 1-15
- F1 2013 (X360) from May 16-31
Pool Nation is, as you would expect, a pool table simulator and a holdover from April’s Games with Gold. Castlestorm: Definitive Edition is a real-time tower defense game that includes online multiplayer and co-op as well as the two previously released expansions. With Mafia II, think of Grand Theft Auto and Godfather mashed together as a video game. You’ll play as Vito, an immigrant in post-World War II America as he navigates through the criminal lifestyle. F1 2013 is a racing sim with a focus on the FIA Formula One World Championship circuits.
Games with Gold has been Microsoft’s answer to PlayStation Plus, offering free games to those who subscribe to Xbox Live Gold, a necessity to play games online.
