There you have it folks, Major Nelson has recently tweeted telling us that Assassin’s Creed II is in fact the second game to be free in July.
As mentioned in an earlier article by Dave, Microsoft introduced this new program for Gold subscribers with a little confusion. Microsoft had shown Assassin's Creed II and Halo 3 to “kick off” the new promotion. Last month we saw Fable III and Spartacus Legends for free and when it was announced that Defense Grid: The Awakening would be the first game in July a handful of members weren't so pleased.
Major Nelson promptly replied to the concerned users over on his Twitter with the following, “FAQ: “Halo 3” and “Assassin’s Creed II” were mentioned as part of the program – no date was given for their release”. It seems the self-proclaimed “switch flipper” has done it again, now offering us Assassin’s Creed II for free on July 16th.
Do you think we will see Halo 3 in August? Share your thoughts below.
