Towards the end of the month, there are always a slew of questionable Games With Gold “leaks.” However, June’s leaked roster seems the most legitimate so far — given it is coming from Xbox official German site. In June, Games With Gold subscribers will be able to pick up Smite’s $100 pack and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia.
As mentioned above, news comes by way of the German version of Xbox Wire — the Microsoft’s dedicated PR site. While these announcements normally are revealed globally at the same time, it appears Microsoft PR published the German version early.
If you are a fan of MOBA games, you will be in luck. The most notable game on the list, Smite, may already be a free-to-play game. However, Xbox Games With Gold subscribers will be able to get $100 worth of in-game content. According to the description, the DLC pack unlocks 20 purchasable gods and 50 other items. Having played the game myself, these will most likely be skins and voice packs to pad out customization. This will be downloadable from June 16 to July 15.
Also on the list for the Xbox One is Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia. Unlike the mainline Assassin’s Creed games, Chronicles is the platformer iteration of the game. Obviously, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia takes place in Russia set to the backdrop of the October Revolution. If you want to pick up on the revolution, you can start downloading this game on June 1 until June 30.
The other two games padding the roster are both Xbox One Backward Compatible titles. The first game is the noteworthy Sonic All Star Racing Transformed, while the other is LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The New Adventures. The former will be available on June 1 to June 15; the latter will be available from June 16 to June 30.
May was a banner month for Xbox’s Games With Gold lineup, featuring Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. If you want to pick up on these games (and the rest for another 11 months), you can grab Xbox’s Live Gold membership via Amazon. Check out the screenshot of the page below, in case it gets removed:
