Xbox One to Get Games With Gold in 2014

Xbox One

The Xbox 360 won’t be the only Microsoft console with free games next year as the company has announced its next-gen system will also be party to the promotion.

Established earlier this year, Games with Gold is a new addition to Xbox Live Gold subscriptions. When you have Xbox Live Gold, you are given access to two free downloadable games per month. For Xbox 360 owners, that’s mean getting access to titles like Dead Rising 2 and Halo 3, amongst others, for free. Well, technically for $60 a year since that’s what a Gold subscription costs, but you know what we mean.

On Thursday, Microsoft’s Major Nelson announced the deal would carry over to the Xbox One starting in 2014.

While there’s no definite date in sight, the move is good news for just about everyone. The only concern we have is there aren’t going to be many games on the Xbox One through the early part of 2014, so the pickings might be slim when it comes to freebies. That said, gift horses. Mouths. Et cetera, et cetera. Our fingers are crossed for Minecraft to be part of that list though. We’d hate to have to pay for it all over again after getting it on the PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

The Xbox One will launch next Friday, Nov. 22.
