I'm sure there are some decent games in there somewhere but this would have been a fantastic opportunity to get out some demos of AC Valhalla, Watch Dogs 3, Halo 6 etc if only for a few days. I guess the danger is someone would find a way into the code and start leafing through for spoilers.

I get the distinct feeling they’re winding down GWG, ready to merge it with Game Pass.


Haha, someone compared it to this time last year:

Microsoft not exactly having a good July, are they...

Incredibly Override was the last ever game to be featured on the cover of GamesMaster.

From what I recall Red Faction 2 was actually rather good, though I don’t know how it’d hold up today. Lots of destructibility to the environments (or was it the first one?), which at the time was a bit of a novelty in an FPS.

Could be the last ever GWG. Out with a bang. TBF Portal Knights is meant to be decent and I never got round to playing it on Game Pass.

They are absolutely, 100% doing this. Probably before 2020 is out, too. Shame.

I enjoy OG Xbox titles in 4K so not too bad really.

Not sure it’s a shame though, if the Gold Sub model dies that’s a good thing.

I played through it last year. It hasn’t aged well, but you can see why it was acclaimed for its time.

It would be a solid one to play a couple of months before 2 launches i guess, if nothing else.

I think that the model of being given four games per month, for “free,” to keep, as a subscriber would be a sad thing to lose. Game pass is great, but it is a little maddening when something drops off before you have the chance to finish it, as Wolfenstein did for me.

Only the Original Xbox/360games in gamepass are for 'keeps', you lose access to the X1 games if you're Gold sub lapses.
