As another month draws to an end, this can only mean one thing; what is next month's Games with Gold? The collection of free Xbox games for Gold members has been a cacophony or co-op and this will not change in the month of May with the news that CastleStorm: The Definitive Edition will be on offer.
CastleStorm is a slick tower defense game from the developer's behind Zen Pinball. It mixes the physics of that game with some fun typical tower defense action. Co-Optimus enjoyed the solo element of the game, but the co-op was a little lacking. The Definitive Edition does not change the 2 player local co-op on offer, but does provide more of it, as well as additional campaign elements.
There is only one co-op title on offer this month, but soloists can also bag other games for free on One and 360 if they are Gold Members:
On Xbox One, Xbox Live Gold members can download CastleStorm: Definitive Edition ($14.99 ERP) for free during the month of May. Pool Nation FX ($13.99 ERP) is also being offered for an additional month.
On Xbox 360, starting Friday, May 1st, Mafia II ($19.99 ERP) will be free for Xbox Live Gold members through May 15th. Then on May 16th, Xbox Live Gold Members can download F1 2013 ($39.99 ERP) for free through May 31st.
For $0, CastleStorm is certainly worth checking out, whilst Mafia 2 is also great fun on 360.
