But most people probably didn't expect the announcement to come today.
Looks like the Xbox Games With Gold offerings slipped out a bit earlier than planned.
There hasn't been the usual official confirmation from Xbox's Larry Hryb on Twitter, so it appears we might be finding out this news early. Just like it was the case with this month, May will feature a major third party game in the form of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain for the Xbox One.
It's also worth mentioning all four games are playable if you own an Xbox One thanks to backwards compatibility.
Microsoft also confirms that May's lineup provides over $79 dollars in value and up to 3400 in gamerscore. Here's the list: As the list has gone live earlier than it should, you still have nine days left to download the games that are now available through the offer. Assassin's Creed Syndicate will remain free in Games With Gold until May 15th, so you have a bit longer to download that one. The second game is also published by Sega because the underrated Vanquish is also available from May 16th until May 31st.
