May 2017’s Free Xbox Live Games with Gold For Xbox One and Xbox 360 Revealed


With May less than a week away, Microsoft has revealed the titles that Xbox Live Gold members will be able to download for free through the Games with Gold program. Like always, there are a total of four games that will be available during the month; two games on the eighth-gen Xbox One and two on the seventh-gen Xbox 360. Both of the free Xbox 360 titles will be playable on Xbox One too, thanks to the backward compatibility.

First up is the director’s cut of Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams for Xbox One owners. It is a platformer by Black Forest Games that allows the character to manipulate her dreams and transform the world around her. The second game that will be available for Xbox One owners is Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, which is a co-op action game that allows players to play any one of the four characters; Lara Croft, Carter, Isis and Horus.
