April Update screen

Slime Rancher is the tale of Beatrix LeBeau, a plucky, young rancher who sets out for a life a thousand light years away from Earth on the ‘Far, Far Range’ where she tries her hand at making a living wrangling slimes. With a can-do attitude, plenty of grit, and her trusty vacpack, Beatrix attempts to stake a claim, amass a fortune, and avoid the continual peril that looms from the rolling, jiggling avalanche of slimes around every corner!


On the Xbox 360, and available on the Xbox One via backwards compatibility, Gold members can download Bayonetta for free until August 15th. You can view the game's full achievement walkthrough here and download the game from here.

Bayonetta 1

From the creative geniuses behind Devil May Cry and Resident Evil comes Bayonetta™, a game of 100% pure, unadulterated, climatic action. With powers far beyond the comprehension of mere mortals, our heroine Bayonetta fights countless enemies, evil forces and giant foes in brutal yet graceful ways.


Lastly, if you've not already downloaded Runbow, it remains free until August 15th.
You can download the game from here.


Get Ready to Runbow! Runbow is a fast-paced action party game for up to 8 players locally and 9 players online. Platforms and obstacles appear and disappear with each swipe of the background color, so if you can't see something, IT DOESN'T EXIST! Players can go head-to-head in Run, Arena, and King of The Hill, or hone their skills on their own in Adventure or The Bowhemoth.
