Time is flying by, and we’re already nearly at June, and with that comes the next turnover for subscription services and new free games for players. We got a peek yesterday at Sony’s offering for their PS Plus members, and now we see what Microsoft is offering up for their Gold subscribers this month, and looks like there’s a good deal of variety.
The headlining game is EA’s NHL 19, the latest entry in the annual hockey series, and it will be available all month long from June 1-30. Along with it is the classic Portal, the physics based puzzler, which will available June 1-15.
While those are the major titles, as always there’s four total titles with the service, with one being Rivals of Aether, a Smash Bros. inspired fighting game with several high profile indie guest stars like Shovel Knight that will be free June 16-July 15. Finally, Earth Defense Force 2017, an entry in the alien invasion themed shooter series, will be available June 16-30.
The games will available for free to Gold subscribers starting at the beginning of June.
