Defense Grid Is This Month’s Free XBL Gold Game, Not Halo 3 And Assassin’s Creed 2

Microsoft promised that Halo 3 and Assassin’s Creed 2 would be the first two available games from its new, PS Plus-like Xbox Gold feature dubbed Games with Gold, however the firm has changed its mind, now providing only Xbox LIVE Arcade title Defense Grid: The Awakening.

Defense Grid is actually the second title to be released under Microsoft’s new ‘Games With Gold’ program following last month’s Fable 3 – however the latter became available before the initiative was announced. The title usually costs 800 Microsoft Points.

Games with Gold still has a long way to go if it’s to match Sony’s PS Plus offerings. Today, you can get for free, Uncharted 3, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Catherine, The Cave, Demon’s Souls, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus HD, Kingdom’s of Amalur: Reckoning and LittleBigPlanet Karting.

And that’s without counting free PS Vita titles Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush, Rayman Origins and Sine Mora.
