Microsoft Offering New Free Games Tomorrow For Xbox Live Gold Members, Spring Sale Ends Monday

Two titles from the list of April 2017’s Games With Gold are going free tomorrow. Active Xbox Live Gold members will be able to get their free copies of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations and The Walking Dead: Season 2 without spending a dime.

According to a post on Major Nelson, Xbox One owners with Gold membership on Xbox Live are eligible to get The Walking Dead: Season 2 from April 16 to May 15 for $0, compared to its usual price tag of $25. It’s the sequel to 2012 The Walking Dead game where players take the role of Clementine, “a young girl orphaned by the undead apocalypse” and is “forced to learn how to survive in an unforgiving world.”

Another game going free tomorrow is the Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, available for the Xbox 360 users. And there’s more good news as the 2011 action-adventure video game from Ubisoft originally worth $20 is also playable on Xbox One thanks to the Backward Compatibility feature. Its game summary posted on the Xbox Marketplace reads below.

“In Assassin’s Creed® Revelations, master assassin Ezio Auditore walks in the footsteps of the legendary mentor Altair, on a journey of discovery and revelation. It is a perilous path – one that will take Ezio to Constantinople, the heart of the Ottoman Empire, where a growing army of Templars threatens to destabilize the region.”

But before this day, April 15, ends, Xbox Live Gold members still have the chance to get the $20-worth Xbox 360 game Darksiders (with Backward Compatibility) for free. This is also the last day for eligible Xbox owners to get their free copy of Evolve Ultimate Edition that became free beginning March 16.

Meanwhile, Crytek’s third-person action-adventure hack-and-slash title Ryse: Son of Rome (Xbox One), which is typically priced at $20 and has been free since the first day of the month, is scheduled to be free for the entire month.
