When to expect your free Xbox Live Gold games

Fable 3 gives way to Assassin's Creed 2 and Halo 3, later this summer

Microsoft has detailed exactly when Xbox Live Gold members will get their hands on two free games, as promised during the manufacturer's E3 presser. Get your diary out, and draw a big smiley face on the 1st and 16th of every month between now and the end of the year.

Fable 3 is currently free to download from the Marketplace - it'll give way to Assassin's Creed 2 and Halo 3 next month.


"As our way of saying thanks, we're giving all active Gold members two bonus Xbox 360 games each month for the rest of the year," reads a blurb. "Each specially selected, fan-favourite game will be available to download only for a limited time, so grab them before they're gone and keep them no matter what."

Here are 10 additional free Xbox games, and 14 excellent free add-ons and expansions.
