Xbox Live Gold members, take note, for Microsoft has formally announced the software available to download free of charge for the month of May as part of the Games with Gold promotion.
In keeping with previous months, two of the titles in question will be available throughout the entirety of the month, while the remainder are restricted to select windows. First up, Xbox One owners can look forward to tower defense title CastleStorm: Definitive Edition, as well as Pool Nation. The latter game was available through last month’s Gold offerings, though Microsoft has opted to extend its stint on the digital storefront for another four weeks.
As for Xbox 360, Mafia II will get the ball rolling on May 1, where it will be free to download for the first half of May. After that window has expired, the company will swap out the adventures of Vito Scaletta and Co. for a more racing-oriented experience in the form of F1 2013, with Feral Interactive’s title remaining on the Games with Gold offerings right up until May 31.
Here’s a detailed breakdown of those aforementioned windows courtesy of Microsoft.
CastleStorm: Definitive Edition ($14.99 ERP) Available from May 1-31 on Xbox One
Mafia II ($19.99 ERP): Available from May 1-15 on Xbox 360
F1 2013 ($49.99 ERP): Available from May 16-31 on Xbox 360
