Unlike PlayStation Plus free games, the new Xbox Games with Gold releases don’t have a set reveal date each month.
However, judging by recent Games with Gold reveals, the new line-up should be announced on Friday, May 29 at 4pm BST.
This is by no means set in stone, but announcements typically take place on weekdays, and with two or three days to spare before the actual launch.
With the next wave of Games with Gold releases going live on Monday, June 1, the Friday reveal seems like the most logical bet.
Subscribers have just over a week left to download the current batch of Games with Gold releases, which include V-Rally 4 and Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr on Xbox One.
Xbox 360 title Overlord II is also available to download if you’re a Games with Gold subscriber.
It’s certainly not the most exciting line-up in Games with Gold history, so fans will be hoping for something a little better in June.
With a score of 75% on Metacritic, Overlord II is probably the pick of the bunch.
“Overlord II, sequel to the critically acclaimed cult hit, sees the return of the chaotic Minions and their new Dark Master,” reads the official description.
“Bigger, badder and more beautifully destructive, Overlord II has a Glorious Empire to smash, a massive Netherworld to revive, Minion mounts to mobilise, a trio of mistresses to woo, War Machines to crush opposition and lots of cute creatures to, err… murder (and a mini-map).”
V-Rally, on the other hand, is a rally driving game with a Metacritic score of 67%.
It features over 50 different car models, as well as countless courses from across the world.
“The legendary off-road racing game returns!” reads the official description.
“Enjoy an extreme experience while becoming an expert in a demanding simulation. Take on the challenges of rallies, rallycross, drifts, buggies and hill climbs, and set off on a spectacular journey across every continent.
“Dominate dangerous roads, hostile conditions, and environments, constantly striving for more speed. Let adrenaline boost your reflexes at the wheel of the most legendary off-road vehicles in each category, and take on the most difficult routes in fabulous surroundings.”
Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr, meanwhile, is an action role-playing game set in the legendary fantasy universe.
It features three character classes, four-person multiplayer, dozens of weapons and a huge skill tree.
