The Xbox Games With Gold program has been around since June 2013 on the Xbox 360, and was introduced on the Xbox One in June of 2014. The program offers up free games to Xbox Live Gold members each month, and after being mostly hit and miss the program seemed to be getting on the right track with free games like Rayman Legends, Tomb Raider, and BioShock Infinite in March followed up by Child of Light, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, and four others in April. Unfortunately this months offerings seem to have slid back to the miss department, but I guess free is free?
Without further ado, here’s your free games for May.

Mafia II – Xbox 360
Mafia II is a beautifully crafted look into the dark and unforgiving world of the Mafia. Hi-octane gunplay, brutal fighting and white-knuckle driving bust onto the screen as a Hollywood-style cinematic experience. It is the intriguing story of Vito Scaletta, who along with his childhood friend, Joe, will descend into the world of organized crime. Together, they will work to prove themselves to the Mafia as they try to make their names on the streets. Starting with low-level jobs like robbery and stealing cars, Vito and Joe escalate quickly up the Mafia family ladder…but the life as a wise guy isn’t quite as glamorous as it seems.
