Today, Microsoft announced May 2020's free Games with Gold for Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners. Starting on May 1, V-Rally 4 and Sensible World of Soccer will be free with the subscription. Then, on May 16, Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr and Overlord II can be downloaded at no cost. You need an active Xbox Live membership to play the Xbox One games, but the Xbox 360 or original Xbox titles are yours to keep after you redeem them once. It doesn't matter if you're still an Xbox Live Gold subscriber.

All of these are great games, but we're partial to Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr. It's just a fantastic Diablo-like game you'll love. It's challenging and there are tons of missions. V-Rally 4 offers a great simulation experience. Sensible World of Soccer is also surprisingly addictive. Lastly, Overlord II is the cult classic everyone loved on Xbox 360.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate bundles Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass for PC, and Xbox Live Gold into one package. The monthly subscription fee goes up to $15 a month, but you gain access to over two hundred games instantaneously.
