Continuing with Xbox Live’s “Games With Gold” 2-free-games-per-month promotion, a classic third-person shooter from Epic Games that defined the genre and an action-packed team-carnage side-scroller from Demiurge Studios arrive on Xbox Live this December, free for Gold subscribers.
“The next set of free games for Xbox Live Gold Members in December will be Gears of War* and Shoot Many Robots,” writes Xbox Live’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb in his latest blog. “Starting Sunday (December 1st) Gears of War (Normally US $19.99) will be free for Xbox Live Gold members through December 15th. Then on December 16th, Xbox Live Gold Members can download Shoot Many Robots (Normally US $9.99) for free.”
*Germany and Japan will receive “Halo Wars”
Like Halo 3 last month, Gears of War is a classic Xbox 360 exclusive and is the spring board from which the popular chainsaw-revving, blood spilling, cover-to-cover, third-person shooting series began. It’s a great grab for anyone looking for a nostalgic blast from the not-so-distant past. Shoot Many Robots is also a solid choice for co-op buddies looking for a retro action title that keeps things stupidly simple.
Excited for December’s picks?
