The Xbox Games with Gold titles for June 2018 have been revealed, and they include two of the biggest names in gaming. The third and final entry in the Assassin's Creed Chronicles series headlines the group as its Russia entry will be available from June 1 through the end of the month. On the Xbox 360 side (although it's also backwards compatible on Xbox One), Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed will be quite the timely addition (as Sonic's latest racing game was just announced) from June 1 through 15.
May was really an incredible month for Games with Gold as it featured the newly released Super Mega Baseball 2 and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (which is still redeemable until June 15) for Xbox One owners. The Xbox 360 side was also strong as Sega Vintage Collection: Streets of Rage was available during the first half of the month and the cult classic third-person shooter Vanquish. All of those games besides Streets of Rage are still currently available to be redeemed for free until June begins.
The biggest value for Games with Gold is the free Smite Gold bundle (which normally costs $99) from June 16 to July 15. That will allow Xbox One players of the console-based MOBA to get access to 20 extra god characters and over 50 bonus items (that include skins and announcer packs). Finally, LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues will be available on Xbox One and Xbox 360 for free from June 16 until the end of the month. It offers up scenes from all four Indiana Jones movies, and allows players to even create their own levels.
While May was clearly a stronger month for Games with Gold (who can argue with getting Metal Gear Solid V and a new release like Super Mega Baseball 2 for free?), June is certainly no slouch in its own right. The announcement of Sonic Team Racing is certain to get more people interested in checking out Sumo Digital's last racing game, and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed was one of the best arcade racing games released last generation. It's also nice to see the Assassin's Creed Chronicles series get wrapped up, even if Russia was the weakest of the three spin-off titles.
Overall, there's not a single bad game in June's lineup. LEGO Indiana Jones 2 is a good time for kids and nostalgic adults, and Smite is one of the most polished free-to-play titles available on Xbox One. There should be something for everyone next month, and that type of diversity in games should be applauded.
