Xbox fans can claim two more free games – but players are still disappointed | The Sun

World News

XBOX is giving away two free games for users, but players have been left disappointed.

The company announced that it was ending Games with Gold this year, and many feel they are missing out. 

Starting from September 1, 2023, Xbox is shutting down Xbox Live Gold.

It will be replaced by Xbox Game Pass Core, and will continue to allow its users to play Xbox games online.

However, there is one perk from Xbox Live Gold that will no longer be available with Xbox Game Pass Core.

Games with Gold gives subscribers two free games every month that they can download and play as long as they have an Xbox subscription.

However, from September this will be replaced with a small library of 25 Game Pass games which they can play.

This has left Game Pass Ultimate subscribers out of pocket, who already have access to this small library.

This is on top of the recent price rise to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

August will be the last time that Xbox fans can redeem Games with Gold, and they were hoping that the service would go out with a bang.

However, it seems this will not be the case, as the month has a very mediocre offering.

Blue Fire and Inertial Drift are the final Games with Gold, and are not particularly well known.

Usually £16.74 ($19.99), Blue Fire is a 3D platformer full of puzzles and collectables with decent reviews.

Inertial Drift is usually £16.99 ($19.99) and is a lesser-known futuristic racing game, though it does have excellent reviews.

Xbox subscribers have from August 1 until August 31 to redeem their games, and they can play them as long as they hold a subscription.
