Posted on November 14, 2013, Phil Owen Xbox Live Gold Members Will Get Free Xbox One Games Too
In the months since Microsoft launched the Games With Gold program, a poor attempt to match PlayStation Plus giving out games left and right that are complimentary with a subscription — they’ve been handing out stuff like Assassin’s Creed 2 and Halo 3 — they’d said they had no plans to leverage the program on the Xbox One as well, but Major Nelson today tweeted that they will be doing exactly that.
Great news: Access to free games each month is coming for Xbox Live Gold members on #XboxOne – Details coming later in 2014

He didn’t explain this concept at all, but it could mean Gold members will get the Killer Instinct roster free, as they’ve been emailing some members with unlock codes already. Given MS’s reluctance to provide anything of value through this program on Xbox 360, though, it’s hard to guess what else they could be tossing out.
