Ever since Games with Gold was revealed for Xbox gamers it has been scrutinised and compared to Playstation Plus in terms of game quality. Today Major Nelson wrote a blog to talk about improvements that are coming to the service.
The first news was that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and How to Survive: Storm Warming Edition are available now for Xbox One users now. From now until the end of the year two Xbox One games will also be added, meaning up to ten free Xbox One games from now until the end of the year.
As well as these games, the upcoming Xbox One Backward Compatibility, which launches in November will also mean that all Xbox 360 games released on Games with Gold will also work on the Xbox One. Also mentioned is that the Xbox 360 games will also have the Game DVR functionality and not be blocked from streaming to Windows 10 machines. Multiplayer will be available too, and this won’t be machine dependant.
Though the names of the Xbox 360 games that will be available were not listed, it is stated that over 100 titles are slated to arrive on launch. Fans will be eagerly awaiting confirmation on what these will be, and whether their favourite games will be available. It’ll also be interesting to see if the Call of Duty games will be available by then.
With the backward compatibility coming and the promise of two Xbox One games per month this does sound good value for money, as long as the games are good enough. If big name titles aren’t included in Games with Gold, there won’t be much interest shown from fans. With releases like Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes being included though, I’m sure gamers will keep an eye on what future releases will come.
Do the Games with Gold offer good enough titles? Or do they leave you wanting more? Let us know your thoughts below.
