Xbox Games with Gold UPDATE: Free Microsoft Xbox Bonus ahead of July Major Nelson Reveal
Xbox One Games with Gold subscribers don't have long to wait until Microsoft reveals the new free Xbox Games with Gold titles for July 2018.
An announcement is likely coming in the next couple of days, but in the meantime, Xbox One gamers can test something completely free this weekend from Telltale Games in the shape of survival-horror RPG 7 Days to Die.
The game is free to play for all Xbox Live Gold members on Xbox One from now until Monday, June 25 at 11:59 p.m. PST.
“If youve never tried 7 Days to Die before, nows the perfect time to start building your own zombie-repelling fortress, but even if you played the game when it first hit consoles nearly two years ago, consider diving back in,” said Scott Butterworth, Creative Communications Specialist, at Telltale Games teases.
As mentioned previously, the new Games with Gold titles should get announced very soon, potentially on Monday or Tuesday ahead of Sony's own PS Plus announcement on Wednesday.
There's certainly no set rules though, and it's possible we could start hearing rumours and the usual array of leaks via the Xbox dashboard, which has on a number of cases outed the titles ahead of their release.
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.

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.
