Have Xbox Live Gold? Assassin's Creed 2 is now available for free on your 360

Assassin's Creed II is the next game available as a free download for consumers with Xbox Live Gold subscriptions. Simply boot up your Xbox 360 console and download the game from the Marketplace. As a title that's usually priced at $19.99, this is an absolute bargain, especially if you've played the first game and have not yet looked at continuing the experience. 

The second instalment has taken numerous awards, as well as a high rating of 90 at Metacritic. Sporting open world gameplay, Assassin's Creed II will surely zap some free time off your hands.

If that wasn't enough, Major Nelsen has covered the on-going sale of Assassin's Creed DLC (expires July 31st). Mixing both Microsoft Points and real currency purchases, we can also see the original Assassin's Creed currently going for $14.99, just in case you'd also like to pick up the original that kicked out this exciting and engaging series.
