Games with Gold is coming down to it’s final month as it features two more games for Xbox Live Gold Members to have for free. This month features a hit classic among Microsoft’s exclusive franchises: Gears of War.
Gears of War is a futuristic, 3rd-person shooter developed by Epic Games. This game pits the player and his team against an enemy known as the Locust Horde who killed off many COG soldiers and innocent civilians in the world. The game has three sequels: Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3, and Gears of War Judgement.
The second game is Shoot Many Robots, a game created by Demiurge Studios. This is an action platformer game where the player and his team go into many different levels and finish with a boss battle. The game allows the players to customize themselves with different guns, items, and clothing.
Now, since this is the last month we will be getting free games, let’s take a moment to look back at what we did get and see how much money we saved getting these games.
