Based on the award-winning Fables comic book series by Bill Willingham (published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint), The Wolf Among Us is a dark, often brutally violent, and mature take on the characters and creatures of fairytale and legend. A five episode series from the creators of the 2012 Game of the Year: The Walking Dead, the player will experience what it’s like to be Bigby Wolf (THE Big Bad Wolf), Sheriff of Fabletown.
From 16 April 2016 – 15 May 2016, Xbox One owners with Xbox Live Gold memberships can go on a wild and colourful adventure in Sunset Overdrive, for free.
In Sunset Overdrive, the year is 2027 and Sunset City is under siege. A contaminated energy drink has transformed most of the population into toxic mutants. For many it’s the end of the world, but for you it’s a dream come true. Your old boss? Dead. Your boring job? Gone. Transform the open-world into your tactical playground by grinding, vaulting and wall-running across the city while using a devastating, unconventional arsenal.

From 1 – 15 April 2016, Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners with Xbox Live Gold memberships will be able to scare themselves witless with Dead Space, for free.
When an immense mining ship, the USG Ishimura, comes into contact with a mysterious alien artifact in a remote star system, its communications with Earth are mysteriously cut off. Engineer Isaac Clarke is sent to repair the Ishimura’s communications array, but he arrives to find a living nightmare-the ship is a floating bloodbath, the crew unspeakably mutilated and infected by an ancient alien scourge. Clarke’s repair mission becomes one of survival as he fights not just to save himself, but to return the artifact to the planet … at any cost.
From 16 – 30 April 2016, Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners with Xbox Live Gold memberships can go crazy in Saints Row IV, for free.

With homies new and old by your side, and an arsenal of superpowers and strange weapons, you must save the world in the wildest open world game ever!
