If you are an Xbox Live Gold member then the Games with Gold monthly campaign is an absolute must.

Last month, we received two incredible games that made lockdown that little bit more bearable.


However, our attention turns to May as we head into the last few days of the month.

We've also made our 'Lockdown Edition' predictions for titles that our in-house team would like to see.

Continue below for our predictions, as well as some more information on when you can expect May's free Xbox games to drop.

Lockdown Predictions

For the millions of gamers sitting in lockdown around the world - we've thought of a few games that will keep you stimulated and test your survival instincts.

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier

With the first two seasons currently available on Netflix, adding The Walking Dead: A New Frontier would be the perfect game to head into lockdown with.

The Darkness

Starbreeze Studios doesn't really have a presence on Xbox Games with Gold, but the perfect game to bring to the campaign would be The Darkness.

It follows a unique story with a true setting where former gangster pursues revenge and love while being inhabited by a powerful entity known as the Darkness.

Unlike Sony’s monthly campaign, PS Plus, Games With Gold doesn’t actually have an official release date each month.

Release Date

Thanks to the slightly random nature of the Games With Gold drops, we do not have a specific date to stick by.
