Microsoft has unveiled the new batch of games headed to Xbox Live Gold subscribers in June. Games with Gold will soon offer three new games and a somewhat head-scratching addition.

The free downloadable games service seems to be trying something new in June, as one of the four titles that will be available to Xbox Live Gold players is Smite and $100 worth of DLC. While the MOBA is free-to-play, it seems the Games with Gold bonus will be the hefty amount of content you’d otherwise need to buy with microtransactions. According to Xbox’s reveal video, which you can see on the bottom of the page, the DLC credit will unlock 20 gods and 50 pieces of content, such as skins and announcer packs. It’s an odd offering through the service, but for interested players, access to the DLC will be available from June 16th to July 15th.

As for the other three games, the 2.5D platformer Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia will be available from June 1st to the 30th. The Xbox One game is the last in the Chronicles series, giving players a chance to explore Russia in 1918 and steal an artifact from the Bolsheviks.

Also available on the first of the month will be Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Players will have until June 15th to jump into this great Sega racing game, which features tons of vehicles, weapons, and drivers. The roster loops in characters from several different Sega franchises, including Sonic the Hedgehog, Jet Set Radio, Space Channel 5, and more.

The final title, Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues, will be available from June 16th to the 30th. Players will experience several iconic events from the first four Indiana Jones movies, Lego style. As with most Lego adventure games, there are a ton of collectibles to find and enemies to defeat.

All of June’s additions will be available to Xbox Live Gold members. Getting access once they’re available is easy, but for more information on how to download the free games, check out Xbox Wire.
