Microsoft officially announced the Games With Gold of May 2020. This means that, as happens every month, Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb has finally communicated through the social channels what are the four free games that all subscribers of Xbox LIVE Gold service – or to the most complete Game Pass Ultimate – will be able to download at no additional cost.
Also for May 2020, respecting tradition, these are two digital productions for Xbox One and two for the oldest – but unforgettable – Xbox 360, to be used also on the latest generation of the console made in the USA thanks to the backwards compatibility program.

As you can check in the tweet above, or alternatively in the announcement trailer visible below in this same article below, the Games With Gold of May 2020 include first of all the driving simulator V-Rally 4 and the second title of Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr. The first will be active for free download from 1 to May 31, while the second selected game will be available from 16 May to 5 June.
As we already said, thanks to the backwards compatibility all Xbox One users will also be able to access the two Xbox 360 games included in the offer of the next month. Specifically, the first title is Sensible World of Soccer, which features virtual arcade football – to be downloaded from 1 to 15 May -, and the action role-playing game Overlord 2, available for download from 16 to 31 May this year.
Of course, once the Games With Gold of May 2020 are available, those of April will no longer be included in the free package. As you will remember, these are Project CARS 2, Fable Anniversary, Knights of Pen and Paper Bundle, and Toybox Turbos.
