Prep time for The Phantom Pain.
Microsoft promised us last month that going forward, they would try better and harder with their Games with Gold initiative, and if this month’s offerings are any indication, they seem to be going by their word. This month’s Games with Gold offerings are pretty damn good, and it doesn’t matter what Xbox system you own- you’re probably going to end up getting a major game either way.
Xbox 360 owners get the excellent Metro Redux, as well as Metro: Last Light this month, meaning that they can play through the entire series for absolutely free, should they so wish to (on the flip side, if you don’t like Metro, and you’re a Xbox 360 owner, you’re sort of out of luck). Xbox One owners get one dud in How to Survive, but more importantly, they also get Hideo Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. This is especially relevant, given that The Phantom Pain launches in September- it’s a good time to get caught up on your MGS5 lore.
