June’s lineup of free Xbox Games With Gold titles includes spinoff entries in two of gaming’s biggest franchises, Assassin’s Creed and Sonic the Hedgehog.
Kicking things off is Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, the third and final game in Climax Studios’ series of side-scrolling platformers featuring new Assassin protagonists. Originally released in February 2016, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia will be available free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers on Xbox One for the duration of June.
The other Xbox One game for the month is Smite, the multiplayer online battle arena game featuring various gods and mythological figures. Smite is a free-to-play title, but Xbox Live Gold subscribers can get the game’s Gold Bundle — whose contents, which include items exclusive to Gold members, are valued at $99.99 — for free from June 16 to July 15.
On Xbox 360, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed will be available free from June 1-15, while Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues will be free for the second half of the month. Both games will be playable on Xbox One via backward compatibility.
In the meantime, you can still pick up some of May’s free titles, including the terrific indie baseball game Super Mega Baseball 2.
