April draws to a close so that means it is time for another round of Games With Gold! Microsoft was a little late on the reveal this month, but for May all Xbox Live Gold subscribers will once again be treated to 4 new free titles. As always 2 of these titles are Xbox One games and this month we will be getting Marooners and The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA Tour. Over on 360, and Xbox One thanks to backwards compatibility, subscribers will get free copies of Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon and Comic Jumper. Check out a brief description of each title below!
It’s time to mix up the fun in the party game extravaganza, Marooners. Join up to 6 of your friends on the couch or online, laugh sadistically at their misfortune, or even haunt and pester them after you die as you battle it out in 25 different games and arenas. The action is intense, switching between games when you least expect it. Run, jump and slap your way to victory!
The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA Tour
Hit the links in The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA Tour. In the officially licensed PGA Tour career mode, test your abilities on beautifully recreated courses like TPC Boston, TPC Sawgrass and more to compete for the coveted Fed Ex cup. With a focus on authenticity and realism, customization, and competition against friends online, this title will appeal to both golf enthusiasts and new players alike.
Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon
Defend the earth at all costs in Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon. Thousands of aliens and giant insects are invading the planet and only the Earth Defense Force can stop them. Take part in non-stop bug killing action, even if it means turning an entire city to rubble. Utilize over 300 weapons, jetpacks and tactical armor to defend humanity.
Jump into comic book adventure in the madcap Comic Jumper. In order to save his own poorly selling title, Captain Smiley must work-for-hire and earn money by fixing the problems within other comic books. Leap into the different genres of Fantasy, Silver Age, Modern and Manga and raise the funds necessary to get his series back up and running.
Sadly it looks like May is going to be fairly lackluster on big name titles. I am also sad to see the recent trend of including original Xbox games in the lineup each month has skipped this month as well. Thankfully despite the lack of big name titles each game on this list is pretty solid and should provide some good time wastes for all subscribers!
