Xbox revealed the titles present on May’s Games with Gold list. These titles are going to be available for free for those who subscribed to Xbox’s Live Gold Program. The list will feature two titles for Xbox One and two for Xbox 360, but all games should run on Xbox One without problems.
The Xbox One titles feature sequels or DLC for already popular games
The first title available for Xbox One in May is Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams Director’s Cut. This game was released for the first time in 2012 and now received a makeover. The gameplay features the main character Giana who ventures in the Dream World to save her sister Maria, who was kept hostage by the fearful dragon Gurglewocky.
What the game brings new is a DLC called The Rise of the Owlverlord. This platformer might not be as good as the classic game Great Giana Sisters, but it is still enjoyable and makes a lot of references which will surely be appreciated by the fans. The game will be available between May 1st and May 31st.
Next in line for Xbox One is Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, the sequel to the Gold game from January 2013 Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. It will bring a resembling gameplay with the perfect mix of action and adventure. In addition, it will bring a 4-player co-op which will make the game more exciting. Temple of Osiris will be available between May 16th and June 15th.
The 360 games share a theme
Some might say that Xbox did not bring big titles for the One console, so they wanted to compensate with the games from 360. Thus, the first game is Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2. This comes pretty soon after the first Force Unleashed was features among the Games with Gold from February.
Xbox chose to stay among the same lines for the second 360 games, so the next title is LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga. Thus, Star Wars enthusiasts will be able to enjoy the first title between 1st and 15th of May, while the second one is available from May 16th until May 31st.
Live Gold subscribers have a lot of gameplay options to choose from, but some are disappointed that there is not going to be much competitivity. Only Temple of Osiris features a multiplayer option, while LEGO Star Wars’ co-op is available only online. Thus, May might not be the best month for Games with Gold, but they are still going to provide an exciting experience.
