It's June 1st, which means that a new game arrives for Xbox 360 Games With Gold. We wave goodbye to Saints Row: The Third (although this is still available for free in some regions if you have forgotten to pick it up), and welcome Dark Souls to the fold. The game can be downloaded for free from here. Although the game does have DLC, it is not required for the game's completion and is not on sale at the moment.
Japanese gamers will notice that Dark Souls is not available for purchase in the Xbox LIVE Games Store. Gold members in this region get Kameo: Elements of Power instead. This game can be downloaded from here.
Xbox One gamers may be expecting one of the two previously announced titles to be available for free today. Unfortunately, this isn't happening just yet. Xbox Team member Jeff Rubenstein has confirmed that the Xbox One Games With Gold will not arrive until after the next system update. The dates for both the update and the availability of the Games With Gold are yet to be confirmed.
As usual Dark Souls is free to download until June 16th, when the game will return to its full price and be replaced with two more free titles: Charlie Murder and Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition.
