Interesting to see a title that was initially up on Kickstarter being offered for free right out the gate. I'd be pissed to see something that I helped back be given away for free as its initial release...

Yet another reason I don't back software.

Today Microsoft finally announced that we will be doing a one month exclusive launch on XboxOne and be included in the Games with Gold program.

What this means is that Games with Gold subscribers will be able to download the game for free during that month. More importantly it also means that a lot of people will learn about the existence of Earthlock. The strategy on our side is long term. We are planning on making two more Earthlock games and with GwG our reach has increased tremendously.

We are extremely proud to have managed to make this deal with Microsoft!

However, some backers have expressed disappointment that the game will be made free for the GwG subscribers. (It's not really free as they are paying a subscription)

To the disappointment I would like to remind you that you have backed a project on Kickstarter where the purpose is to help make the game a reality. That goal has now been achieved. With GwG we also believe we have a much better chance of making this game a success. Also rest assured that the GwG deal has helped us raise more investor funding that again helped us complete the game in the quality we think you deserve.
Yeah I read the presser. Still would piss me off.

This game sound like it could be good, plus it's free so definitely a pick up.

Does anyone know if Nuclear Throne, Enter The Gungeon and Headlander will be released or if it's Steam PS4 only?
Rumoured Games With Gold
Dead Rising 3
Ryse: Son of Rome
Red Dead Redemption
Dark Souls 2
Assassin's Creed Unity
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
With only three games left to be announced will any of those make the list?
None of that list will be free.

Yep agree with all of you on these likely not being free too soon, Red Dead was just put on BC and after the little beef with Dark Souls 3 maybe not making 2 free, out of those Diesel listed Ryse would make most sense because almost no one plays anymore, DR3 will have pickups with 4 coming out and the re-releases. The diabolical DLC content making a game Gold just to sell the DLC would be the genius move.

Adding nothing constructive to a thread near you

What exactly is the point of this thread?

Swing and miss on all the rumors.

I guess Assassin's Creed Chronicles China is almost a foul, though...

It's a rare month where I already own 3/4, but, decent enough titles:

Earthlock XONE
AC: Chronicles China XONE

Forza Horizon X360
Mirror's Edge X360
I also own 3/4 of the games owned, at least I can get rid of two game discs
