For the month of May, Games with Gold will feature Dust: An Elysian Tail and Saints Row: The Third. Dust: An Elysian Tail will become free tomorrow, May 1st, and will remain that way until May 15th. Saints Row: The Third will become free on May 16th and remain that way until the end of the month, May 30th.
Saints Row: The Third was originally released in 2011 and Dust: An Elysian Tail was originally released in 2012; both games received massive amounts of praise from critics and fans alike. The month of May’s offerings for Games with Gold continues the services upward trend in terms of quality. When the service first began it was knocked for both the quality of the games and the age of the games but in recently it has started to have better and better offerings. We look forward to seeing if Microsoft continues this trend into the future or reverts back to its old ways.
