Details of an Xbox One version of Microsoft’s Games with Gold promotion will be “coming fairly soon,” according to Microsoft Game Studios corporate vice president Phil Spencer.
Spencer was asked when users could expect the program to be made available for Xbox One, to which he replied: “Answer to this will be coming fairly soon.” Games with Gold offers Xbox Live Gold subscribers on Xbox 360 two free games each month on the 1st and 16th. Once these games have been downloaded they can be kept forever—even if the user’s Xbox Live subscription is canceled.
Microsoft recently announced that Dead Island and Toy Soldiers: Cold War would be the two games offered to subscribers for free in February. Dead Island will be free to download until February 15, after which it will be replaced by Toy Soldiers: Cold War.
