Microsoft are bringing their Games with Gold program to Xbox One this June. The program, which is currently available on Xbox 360, provides two free games per-month to Xbox Live Gold subscribers.

 

The Xbox One version of the program will debut with Halo: Spartan Assault and Max: The Curse of Brotherhood. Additionally, discounted rates for Gold subscribers will be available as well, for Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome and other unannounced titles.

 

Additionally, starting in June, Xbox users will no longer require an Xbox Live Gold subscription to access many of the service’s media features.

 

“This includes great gaming apps like Machinima, Twitch and Upload, popular video services like Netflix, Univision Deportes, GoPro, Red Bull TV and HBO GO, sports experiences like the NFL app for Xbox One, MLB.TV, NBA Game Time, NHL Game Center and more,” said Xbox chief Phil Spencer.

 

Online multiplayer, however, will still require an Xbox Live Gold membership.
