Microsoft confirms the four free games coming to Xbox Games With Gold in May 2018.
There’s another strong lineup of Xbox One and Xbox 360 games coming to Games with Gold in May.
First up is the brand new Xbox One game, Super Mega Baseball 2. This arcade sports sequel builds upon the original with improved graphics, and a range of online multiplayer modes.
It’s joined by Kojima’s final game for Konami, the majestic Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. If you’re yet to play this open-world classic, don’t miss this opportunity to add the game to your Xbox One library.
Over on Xbox 360 – and Xbox One via the magic of Backwards Compatibility – is another fantastic Japanese action game: Shinji Mikami’s oft-overlooked Vanquish. The game’s combination of gun play, melee combat, and environmental traversal is pure, thrilling video game.
And finally, you can pick up the Sega Genesis classic, Streets of Rage.
Xbox Games With Gold: May 2018
- Super Mega Baseball 2 – May 1 to May 31
- Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – May 16 to June 15
Xbox 360 and Xbox One
