What is Xbox Games with Gold?

Games With Gold is Microsoft’s answer to the free games you get with Sony’s PlayStation Plus.

You can get the free games on Xbox if you subscribe to Xbox Live Gold – something that’s required for online play.

Then, each month you receive four free games, two on the latest console and two for the previous generation.

These are yours to keep for as long as you have your Xbox Live Gold membership running.

Xbox Games with Gold May 2021 – the full list

There are four games as part of the May 2021 offering.

The first is called Armello, which is available from May 1 to May 31.

It’s a “grim fairytale board game come to life”, combining tabletop-style strategy and RPG elements.

Then there’s Dungeons 3, on offer from May 1 to June 15.

This is a real-time strategy game where you’re tasked with building dungeons and commanding a hellish army to seize control of the over world.

Lego Batman is up for grabs from May 1 to May 15.

It hardly needs an introduction: you play as Batman fighting his way through Gotham, albeit in Lego form.

Finally there’s Tropico 4, which is free from May 16 to May 31.

You play as El Presidente who rules a small island nation in a political sim where you’ll try to earn the support of the public, negotiate deals and handle natural disasters.
