There was an exciting rumor floating around late last week that a certain Western themed Rockstar title was hitting Games with Gold this month. Alas, it was a hoax. We now have the official listing though, and it’s not too shabby!
June will see the releases of Goat Simulator and The Crew for Xbox One, and Super Meat Boy and XCOM: Enemy Unknown for Xbox 360. Will Tuttle, Xbox Wire Editor in Chief, detailed what you can expect to see from each of this month’s entries:
“On June 1, we’ve got the next-gen goat simulation technology of Goat Simulator! Crash through the world as a goat, do some epic tongue grabs and rack up points for destroying everything you see. You can even compete with your friends to see who can smash more things in style. Oh, did we mention you can be a goat?
Then, on June 16, take a wild ride with your friends in The Crew. A revolutionary, action-driving open-world game with a richly detailed recreation of the United States, The Crew offers an online driving experience like none other. Tackle challenges across the map, infiltrate underground racing teams and defeat dangerous criminal groups with Alex Taylor. There is no better time to take a test drive.
Also on June 1, put on your platforming shoes because Super Meat Boy is coming at you full force on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One. It has over 300 levels, epic boss fights and tons of unlockable secrets like retro warp zones. You can even play with characters from other famous indie games. So, there is only one question left to ask: Can you run, jump and wall jump through pure madness?
Last but certainly not least, get strategic and fight off aliens with XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Prepare your squad of custom-equipped troops with countless upgrades, abilities, and equipment, because XCOM: Enemy Unknown is the complete turn-based strategy package.”
