GWG (Games With Gold)

New thing here on Saraptor’s News: GWG! (Games With Gold)
We’ll help YOU (and ourselves) to keep track of the FREE stuff from Microsoft’s XBOX live 😉
The 1.st every month we’ll post whats up on GWG.

Here are the list so far:

Xbox 360

Players with active Xbox Live Gold memberships (excluding trial memberships and “free Gold” weekends) may download the games during their respective availability periods. When downloaded, the game belongs to the user even if they subsequently drop their Xbox Live Gold membership. Two titles are released a month, with the exception of April 2015 (which saw the release of four games, two in each half) and June 2014 (which saw a third game released alongside the second to celebrate the one year anniversary of the program). The first game is free to download from the first of the month until the fifteenth, and then the second being available to download from the sixteenth until the end of the month.

Future Games with Gold releases for Xbox 360 will be made available for Xbox One through its backward compatibility system beginning November 2015.

Xbox One

Unlike Xbox 360 Games with Gold releases, Xbox One users must maintain their Xbox Live Gold memberships in order to keep access to downloaded titles. Should the user drop their membership, access is suspended until the membership is reinstated or the game is purchased outright.

Beginning in July 2015, Microsoft announced the expansion of the Games With Gold program to officially offer two games each month for the Xbox One, just like with the Xbox 360. Each game will be offered for a full month, with one game being available from the 1st of the month until the last day of the month and the second game being available from the 16th of the month until the 15th of the following month. This was a change from previous policy: when the program had begun including Xbox One games, it had started with two games, rotating them so that each month included one new game and one game that had been offered the month before.
