Assassin’s Creed II, one of the first games advertised for the new Games With Gold service on Xbox Live, will soon be offered for free. The game will become available on July 16th. Assassin’s Creed II will be following the first Games With Gold release, Defense Grid: The Awakening.
Many gamers expected Halo 3 to be the first game offered for free, as the Xbox 360 E3 conference seemed to be pointing that way. As a result, Defense Grid was met with a bit of an underwhelming reception. Assassin’s Creed II will likely be received better.
