Games with Gold May 2020: Great news for Xbox Live free games fans

An update regarding the Games with Gold May 2020 lineup will be announced by Microsoft this week. The time is running out for the tech giant to reveal its plans for next month, with the first of these free Xbox One games scheduled to go live on Friday, May 1, 2020. Microsoft has yet to tease what they have planned and there have been no leaks to confirm what is coming next.

The good news is that the big Games with Gold May announcement is just around the corner.

And with so many titles to choose from, it’s almost impossible to predict what Microsoft could be planning.

For now, Project Cars 2 and Knights of Pen and Paper Bundle can be downloaded for free if you have an Xbox Live subscription.

The Project Cars 2 will be replaced on May 1, with a new title, followed by Pen and Paper Bundle on the 16th.

Last year’s Games with Gold selection included Marooners and The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA Tour, which speaks to how random the selection can be.

Meanwhile, the classic titles supplied from the Xbox 360 included Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon and Comic Jumper.

Last month’s lineup was announced until the very last day, meaning this months announcement could come at any time.

And while Xbox gamers only have a short time to wait until they find out what is coming next, Microsoft has arranged for a few free downloads to be made available this weekend.

Free Play Days titles are only playable for a few days, but they provide full access and additional discounts if you buy the full game.

These Xbox One games are totally free to download and play for the duration of the trial, making them an easy choice.

The current lineup includes Bleeding Edge, Madden NFL 20, and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, all of which can be downloaded today.

They will remain available to play until Sunday, April 26 at 11:59 p.m. PDT, or closer to 8am GMT if you live in the UK.

Each game offers a different gameplay style and all of them are discounted for the duration of the free trial.

So if you like any of them and want to continue playing on Monday, April 27, you should find them all discounted.
