Xbox Games With Gold For June 2022 Now Available (VIDEO)
Though not as updated or pronounced as Microsoft’s platform-spanning Xbox Game Pass service, the Xbox Games with Gold program is nonetheless still getting support well into the year 2022. Bringing subscribers two free games to play as long as their Xbox Live Gold membership is active, Games with Gold is still bringing numerous memorable games into players’ libraries every 30 days, with the latest now being made available for the month of June.
Going live at the time of the announcement, June 1st, terraforming city builder Aven Colony is currently available alongside the classic protein-based platformer Super Meat Boy for at least the first half of the month. Starting on June 16th, two more games will be unlocked, bringing the sky-scraping tower sim Project Highrise: Architect’s Edition to the masses alongside the party-based puzzler hybrid Raskulls. A breakdown of each new Games with Gold title can be seen in the playlist below.
Xbox Games with Gold for June 2022
- Aven Colony (June 1st – June 30th)
- Build a new world and a life for humanity. It’s your job to develop Aven Colony on the strange new world of Aven Prime. Use construction drones to help your small settlements grow into massive cities. It won’t be easy. This exotic planet is filled with deserts, tundras, and teeming jungles. There are strange alien lifeforms and winter is coming which will freeze over the entire planet. Delve into your new home’s mysterious past by leading exploratory expeditions. Govern the growing populace using multiple overlay modes for crops, citizens, happiness, water and more. Life is difficult but the future can be bright if you make it so on Aven Colony.
- Project Highrise: Architect’s Edition (June 16th – July 15th)
- You are the architect and the big metropolis is ready for your vision. Develop gleaming, majestic skyscrapers that will be the talk of the town. But a skyscraper is more than just steel and concrete, it’s a vibrant ecosystem filled with residents and workers. Keep everything running smoothly using your logistical skills. Entice and attract businesses, residents, tourists, convention goers and more. Explore open sandbox play or conquer campaign mode in 29 scenario challenges. The city awaits!
- Super Meat Boy (June 1st – June 15th)
- You’re not just any blob of meat. You are Super Meat Boy and you’ll do anything to save your beloved damsel in distress (who happens to be completely wrapped in bandages) from evil dressed up in a tux. Leap through caves and walls avoiding buzzsaws and needles in this streamlined platformer. Venture into the very depths of Hell itself for epic boss fights as you make your way through 300+ single player levels. It’s meaty good fun!
- Raskulls (June 16 – June 30th)
- Get ready for a Raskulls Megaquest spanning 3 chapters and over 60 levels! Wield your block-breaking wands to get through every level as fast as you can. Collect your Boosties and feed your Frenzy bar for quick bursts of super speed. Enjoy multiplayer online or via couch play. Dive into this fun, quirky platformer filled with Shiny Stones, intergalactic buccaneers and cheese!
Though June has already begun yielding its Games with Gold blessings, last month still has something to offer players, if only for a limited time. While the likes of mail-delivering pinball platformer Yoku’s Island Express, vibrant minigame spin-off Viva Piñata Party Animals, and classic arcade racer Hydro Thunder Hurricane are not longer available, the wacky point and click adventure The Inner World – The Last Wind Monk is still planned to be up for grabs until June 15th.
