Xbox One players will be getting a better deal in the Games With Gold program starting in July. This is in celebration of the two years that Xbox Live Gold has been providing subscribers with great games for the Xbox platforms.
Announced via the Xbox Wire, the new setup will see two new games every month on the Xbox One. This means there will be a total of four games coming each month, two each for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360. The new games will be released on the first and the 16th of every month for the Xbox One, with players having a full month to download them.
The Xbox 360 games will be available for download every two weeks. The first will be out from the first to the 15th, while the second will be available for download from the 16th to the last day of the month.
For July, Xbox One players will get the acclaimed “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag” and the puzzle title “So Many Me.” “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag” will be downloadable throughout July, while “So Many Me” will be available July 16-Aug. 15. Xbox 360 players will get EA’s “Plants vs. Zombies” on the first half of the month and “Gears of War 3” for the remainder of July.
Microsoft is setting changes for its platforms, and the Xbox One is seeing most of them. At E3 2015, what made waves in Microsoft’s camp was the announcement of backward compatibility for the Xbox One.
The company recently released information on what the backward compatibility feature will entail. The good news for those who have a lot of DLCs for previous games is that it appears that the Xbox One will not prevent the carryover of DLCs for older games. However, the compatibility of DLCs of some titles will rely on the publishers, reports GamesRadar.
Similarly, other features such as the cloud saves, the achievements and the multiplayer will play like they did with the Xbox 360. The video below provides details straight from Microsoft’s Major Nelson himself. For preview members, the backward compatibility for the Xbox One is already available to access.
