Microsoft Unveils May’s Xbox Games With Gold

Xbox Games With Gold

Microsoft has revealed May’s Xbox Games With Gold games.

Every month, Xbox Live Gold subscribers get a selection of titles, typically four, that they can download and “keep”. Essentially, as long as you’re an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, you’ll be able to play those games as long as you continue to subscribe to the service.

This month’s titles are as follows:

  • Armello (Xbox One): Available May 1 to 31
  • Dungeons 3 (Xbox One): Available May 16 to June 15
  • Lego Batman (Xbox 360): Available May 1 to 15
  • Tropico 4 (Xbox 360): Available May 16 to 31

Thanks to backwards compatibility, all of these titles are playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X. Armello in particular is well worth playing; in our review we noted it was “a fairly easy game to learn, but a very hard game to master”, awarding it an excellent 8 out of 10.

The other three are also fun though we have reservations about Tropico 4; not because it’s a bad game but, around that time, Xbox 360 strategy games weren’t all that great at using the gamepad.

The games are only available through specific release windows, as listed above. Choosing to download one, even if you cancel the download halfway through, is enough to attach the title to your account in which case you can re-download it later.


Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
