Next month’s Games With Gold is all about arcade action and futuristic warfare.
Maintaining a hot streak of offerings, Xbox Live Gold subscribers can expect baseball, Metal Gear and two Sega cult-classics in May. After a beta that showed marked improvement over the first game, I’m told Super Mega Baseball 2 will be worth checking out when it makes it’s debut on Games With Gold in May. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Vanquish and Streets of Rage will also be on offer next month. Check when you can download May’s Games With Gold:
- Super Mega Baseball 2 (May 1 – 30)
- Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (May 16 – June 15)
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is the obvious jewel of May’s Games With Gold with massive levels to explore and open-ended stealth combat. Sega’s Vanquish has established a cult following since its 2011 release date. Despite middling sales last-gen the game has managed a healthy fan-base since the game launched on Steam last year. Remember, both Streets of Rage and Vanquish are already backwards compatible, so current owners are already able to play the game on Xbox One.
