Xbox Games with Gold June 2018: Major Nelson set to reveal next FREE games very soon
Xbox One Games with Gold subscribers don't have long to wait until Microsoft reveals the new free Xbox Games with Gold titles for June 2018.
With the current Games with Gold titles for May only lasting for another eleven days we should hear news relating to the new free game titles early next week.
Typically Microsoft announces their new games lineup well in advance of their typical end date. In fact, in the case of most months, the announcement has been made on or around the 22nd of the month.
This would suggest news coming, potentially, as early as Tuesday.
There have been some incidents, like during April, when Microsoft announced their games extraordinarily late, but they have habitually always revealed their games lineup before Sony's PS Plus games.
There's certainly no set rules though, and it's possible we could start hearing rumours from Monday should the usual array of leaks hit the web and Xbox dashboard.
So far though, there are no leads on what games Microsoft could be dolling out. Although, we don't imagine it will be long before we find out more.
Xbox One X E3 2017 Game Reveals
XBOX ONE X will have lots of games support when the November release date rolls around, including these exclusive and third-party titles.
For those unfamiliar with how Games with Gold works – perhaps for anyone who only got their first Xbox in the last month – here's a quick explainer:
Every month Xbox Live Gold members will receive four new free games – two on Xbox One and two on Xbox 360.
Typically, Games With Gold includes two titles available for a period of two weeks and another two available for a month. It can get confusing and you don't want to accidentally miss out on downloading a great game, so it's worth marking the dates down on your calendar to ensure you don't miss out.
Equally, you shouldn't forget that two of the games included are from the Xbox 360 era, and that means both titles can be played on your Xbox One thanks to the console's backwards compatibility features.
Plus, now that the Xbox One has a dedicated Xbox 360 backwards compatibility store, you can easily search for, find, and download these games should you forget to download them for free during Games with Gold.
