Another outstanding month has passed, and now it's time to reveal Microsoft's batch of free games for the month of May. Microsoft has just revealed four games that will be free to download for Xbox Live Gold members. Along with the four games is a game from last month that will remain free until the middle of May. These games will be available to play across both the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Last month, Microsoft revealed four games to the community, The Wolf Among Us, Sunset Overdrive, Dead Space, and Saints Row IV. This month Microsoft has a completely different set of games that are for gamers to play. The two free games that will be available on Xbox 360 will also be available on the Xbox One via backwards compatibility.
The first game that players will be able to download and play is Defense Grid 2, a tower defensive video game which will be available from May 1-29. The objective of the game is to take on the role of commander and defend bases, colonies, space stations, and outposts from aliens that are trying to grab and takeover each location. Defense Grid 2's original price is $15, but will be free-to-play in the month of May. The second game title is Costume Quest 2, a role-playing video game which will be available to download from May 16-June 15.
