While Xbox One users will have to wait for an update “Games with Gold” program, current Xbox 360 users will still be able to take advantage of some great offers. This month, the company is offering up the original Gears of War, along with an indie game, Shoot Many Robots.
Gears of War will be available from December 1 to December 15. The title normally would cost you $19.99 on the Xbox Marketplace, but can be obtained for free during this time period.
Gears of War is a military science fiction game that is played from a third-person perspective. It was originally launched in 2006, but you can relieve the adventure in your living room this month. Join Delta Squad and save what little sources of humanity remains on planet Sera. You will play as Marcus Fenix, an ex-con with an attitude. When you are finished crushing through the campaign, you can join a multiplayer match with up to eight other gamers. The title is powered by Unreal Engine 3 and was produced by Epic Games.
Shoot Many Robots is the second title available for “Games with Gold” and will be available from December 16 to December 31. The title would normally cost $9.99, but will be free during the aforementioned dates.
Shoot Many Robots is an Xbox Live arcade game developed by Demiurge Studios and published by Ubisoft. The game was originally released last year, 2012. The action platformer takes you on an adventure where you (you guessed it), shoot many robots. The game has a rating of 4/5 stars on the marketplace and is worth paying attention to once it is released for free (or now, if you want to support the developers).
