Xbox Games With Gold for June offers The Crew, Goat Simulator and more

Get your goat on

Next month will be the three-year anniversary of Microsoft's Games With Gold program, and the company is marking the occasion by offering a total of four games to Xbox One owners (with an assist from Xbox 360 backward compatibility).

The Xbox One version of Coffee Stain Studios' Goat Simulator will be free all month long, while Ivory Tower's open-world racing game, The Crew, will go free June 16 and will remain so through July 15.

Xbox One owners will also be able to pick up two free Xbox 360 games in June and play them via backward compatibility. Team Meat's challenging platformer Super Meat Boy will be free for the first half of the month, while Firaxis Games' celebrated strategy game XCOM: Enemy Unknown will replace it from June 16-30. Of course, both titles will also be free on Xbox 360.

As always, all of the Games With Gold titles are free to Xbox customers with an active Xbox Live Gold subscription, and once they're "purchased," those users will own the Xbox 360 games forever, even if their subscription lapses. For more on the June games, check out the video above.
