Microsoft has announced the next set of games for their Games with Gold promotion today. Starting December 1st, Gears of War will be available to download free of charge until December 15th. Then, on December 16th, Shoot Many Robots will follow suit. Though the company has confirmed that this promotion will extend to the Xbox One, no details regarding that platform have been made available just yet.
I don’t know about you, but I think December’s offerings are a bit of a letdown. I’m not too familiar with Shoot Many Robots, but how many people are going to download Gears of War? I mean, they could have at least offered up one its sequels. To give us the original Gears just seems a bit odd. Is there really anyone out there with an Xbox 360 that hasn’t played Gears of War yet?
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great game. In fact, I played the hell out of it back in the day. I just don’t see much point in offering it up for free at this point in time. Hopefully Microsoft can deliver something a bit more exciting when the promotion starts up on the Xbox One.
Tell us, will you be picking up Gears of War or Shoot Many Robots next month?
