Gold members can get the open world experience for free right now
The second Games with Gold free title offered to Xbox 360-owning Xbox Live Gold subscribers this month, Saints Row 3, has just gone live and can be downloaded free of charge until the end of the month.Microsoft unveiled some big news and changes to the Games with Gold program for the Xbox One, which is set to debut next month and will offer quite a few different free titles to owners of the new console.
There is, however, a catch, as Xbox One users will have to keep their Xbox Live Gold subscription in place if they want to play the free games, just like with Sony's PS Plus subscription.
Xbox 360 users, however, won't see any changes, as their free games will continue to be available even if they don't have an active Gold membership.
Now, starting today, Saints Row: The Third is available as a free download for the Xbox 360 via the Xbox Live marketplace.
The game weighs in at 6.86GB and promises to deliver an entertainment open world experience in which players can perform all sorts of crazy antics.
You can expect Microsoft to continue improving Games with Gold in the following months, in order to draw in more people.
