Guacamelee, BattleBlock Theater, and more coming free to Xbox Live in July

Microsoft’s Major Nelson has shared the next round of free games coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360 through the Games with Gold program. 

Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition, DrinkBox Studios’ colorful “Metroidvania” brawler, replaces Halo: Spartan Assault on Xbox One. Press Play’s creative platformer Max: The Curse of Brotherhood remains available through July.

Xbox 360 gamers will be granted free access to Monolith Productions’ quirky, Batman-themed team FPS Gotham City Impostors from July 1-15. Then, from July 16-31, they will be treated to BattleBlock Theater, the semi-co-op platform brawler from Castle Crashers studio The Behemoth.

As the name implies, Games with Gold offers are only available to Xbox Live Gold subscribers. You get permanent access to the games once they’re downloaded, even after their Games with Gold tenure ends, so be sure to grab any outgoing games that pique your interest before they disappear.
