Xbox announce the next two ‘Games with Gold’

Microsoft have announced 4 year old Xbox Arcade game ‘Defence Grid: The Awakening’ as the 2nd free game as part of their new ‘Games with Gold’ scheme, available from the 1st July until the 16th July.

They have also announced that from the 16th July to 1st August, ‘Assassin’s Creed 2′is scheduled to be the 3rd free game in the scheme.

Whilst Xbox are clearly trying to compete with Sony’s free game releases as part of PS+, they certainly need to offer a lot more to Gold users to top Playstation’s free games list that already boasts ‘Saints Row the Third’, ‘Uncharted 3′ and the most recent AAA addition ‘Battlefield 3′.
