Microsoft has announced the four free games coming to Xbox Games with Gold in May 2019.
The pick of May’s Games with Gold selection is The Golf Club 2019 from H.B. Studios. In our review we said the game was “a massive treat” for fans of the sport.
Xbox One owners can also look forward to playing M2H’s party game jamboree, Marooners. It’s a wild and enjoyable mix of varied mini games for up to six players.
May’s Xbox 360 games – which are also playable on Xbox One via Backward Compatibility – are Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon and Comic Jumper. Nothing to write home about, but if you live at home and need a distraction, they might be worth a look.
Here are the availability dates for each game.
Xbox Games With Gold – May 2019
- Marooners – May 1 – 31
- The Golf Club 2 Featuring PGA Tour – May 16 – June 15
Xbox 360 and Xbox One
- Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon – May 1 – 15
- Comic Jumper – May 16 – 31
There’s still time to grab three games from this month’s lineup: Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2, Outcast: Second Contact, and The Technomancer.
