Goat Simulator And The Crew Headline Microsoft’s Games With Gold Offerings For June 2016


As May draws to a close, gamers have kept one ear to the ground in anticipation of news relating to both PlayStation Plus and Microsoft’s Games With Gold. And while we await word from Sony’s camp, Major Nelson has confirmed the June 2016 lineup for Xbox Live Gold members, with Goat Simulator and Ubisoft’s MMO racer The Crew standing as the two highlights on Xbox One.

Indeed, it is Coffee Stain Studios’ wonderfully bonkers simulator that will be available the entire month of June, before it is joined on the Xbox One roster on June 15 by The Crew. As detailed in the graphic above, outside of those windows Goat Simulator and The Crew are priced at $9.99 and $29.99, respectively.

Switching gears from one generation to the next, tough-as-nails platformer Super Meat Boy will make a beeline for Xbox 360’s Games With Gold selection on June 1, with XCOM: Enemy Unknown following quickly behind on June 16. Both titles will then remain on the freebies list until June 30, and can be played on Xbox One via the console’s backwards compatibility feature.

So, there you have it; Microsoft has rolled out details for June’s Games With Gold offerings, and you can let us know your thoughts on next month’s lineup by dropping a comment below.
