Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers get four free games under Microsoft’s Xbox Games with Gold program in June, but they may only recognize one of them. That’s 2013’s Injustice: Gods Among Us. The DC Universe fighting game isn’t available until June 16, however.
Injustice is an Xbox 360 game; all of June’s Games with Gold are playable on Xbox Series X and Xbox One through backward compatibility.
Also coming in June are NeoGeo Battle Coliseum, first launched in Japan in 2005 for PlayStation 2 (and for Xbox 360 in 2010), The King’s Bird, and Shadows: Awakening. If that sounds like a rather thin month, this has been a trend for Games with Gold for some time.
Here’s the full June 2021 lineup for Games with Gold:
- The King’s Bird ($19.99 ERP): Available June 1 to June 30.
- Shadows: Awakening ($29.99 ERP): Available June 16 to July 15.
- NeoGeo Battle Coliseum ($9.99 ERP): Available June 1 to June 15.
- Injustice: Gods Among Us ($19.99 ERP): Available June 16 to June 30.
Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can still download three of May’s Games with Gold titles: Dungeons 3 (available to June 15), and Armello and Tropico 4 (available to May 31).
