Star Wars Headlines Xbox’s Games With Gold For May 2017

Is it Star Wars Month over at Xbox HQ?

Just when you thought it was safe to go back online after the Star Wars barrage we just had and all the possible spoilers* and theories that it brought, along comes Xbox with two Star Wars games for its Games With Gold program.

May 2017 brings with it Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2, the sequel to a game that was on GWG previously, and LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, which does not include LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens. God damn you, the passage of time. Both of these are available through Xbox One’s backwards compatibility with Xbox 360.


Elsewhere, Xbox One’s selection includes Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams – Director’s Cut and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris. The former is free for the whole month while the latter is available from 16th May to 15th June. Osiris was incidentally available on PS Plus not all that long ago.

Here are the games in full:

Xbox One
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams – Director’s Cut – May 1st to 31st
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris – 16th May to 15th June

Xbox 360
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 – 1st May to 15th
Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga – 16th May to 31st

Bit of a weak month, in my opinion. How about you?
