Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide and Child of Eden are now free on Games with Gold
Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide and Child of Eden are now free on Games with Gold. Games with Gold is a program tied to your Xbox Live Gold membership which gives you access to some games at no cost with your subscription.
While you keep all Xbox 360 games even if your subscription elapses, you have to maintain Gold status if you want continued access to the Xbox One titles. Warhammer: Vermintide is a first-person action game which tasks you with ridding a city of giant rat-like creatures. The once proud city of Ubersreik now stands in ruin at the hands of the dreaded Skaven army. Few have survived their ruthless invasion. You team up with three friends and work together to thin out the ratmen's forces and drive them out of the city.
Child of Eden is a rhythmic action game which features innovative gameplay and fantastic colors. According to Ubisoft, the title is a "multi-sensory shooter" that will send players diving into a visual matrix of synchronized music and stylized visuals. The game is made by famed designer Tetsuya Mizuguchi who has worked on Sega Rally Championship and Sega Rally 2 in the past.
However, if you're in a country like Japan, your Games with Gold offerings might be different. Many gamers are reporting that Mojang's Cobalt is available for free to members there. Be sure to claim these free games if you're an Xbox Live Gold member because they're great experiences.

If my gold ran out and then renewed later would I get access to the previous xb1 games I got in gwg? Or lose access to any except future ones? Always wanted eden and vermintide is fun when I played on steam but will be nice to get achievements
When you unlock a game it is yours forever, but you can only play it when your gold subscription is active. If you stop you can't play, but if you resubscribe again, you can.
Thank you always wondered how it was, so if I miss the resub date it won't be as bad as I thought.
In case of backward compatible games, you don't even lose access if the Gold subscription ends. You can continue playing them without any further pay.
