Folks who were excited by the announcement of Microsoft’s Games with Gold program will be happy to know that the originally promised free copy of Assassin’s Creed 2 will be available starting July 16th. The game will be available for free to Xbox Live Gold subscribers through July 31st at which time if you’ve missed it then you’ll have to pay to download it.
Microsoft still hasn’t given any details on the other major title that was originally announced with the promotion, Halo 3. We’ll keep an eye out for that news and have it for you right here as soon as it gets clarified. Microsoft’s “Games With Gold” program isn’t quite on par with Sony’s PlayStation Plus but at least it’s a start.
