Games with Gold is back for another month of free games, and I can’t believe that Pool Nation FX is taking up a slot on the Xbox One side for the third consecutive month. There must be other Xbox One developers who want their games highlighted on Games with Gold. Pool Nation FX is a great game – the best pool simulator I’ve ever played – but three months is mind-boggling.

DON’T MISS: Here are all the PS4, PS3 and Vita games you can get for free in June

Where was I? Oh, right: on Thursday, Microsoft announced the 4 3 new games that Xbox Live Gold members will be able to download for free on Xbox One and Xbox 360 in June.

Here’s the full list:

Massive Chalice (Xbox One)

Massive Chalice

An early Kickstarter success, Massive Chalice is a tactical strategy game set in an epic fantasy world. You step into the shoes of the Immortal Ruler, and your goal is to defeat a mysterious enemy known as the Cadence, in a war that will apparently last 300 years.


Pool Nation FX (Xbox One)

Pool Nation FX

Still a game about pool, three months later.


Just Cause 2 (Xbox 360)

Just Cause 2

Equipped with a grappling hook, a bevy of weapons, as protagonist Rico Rodriguez you’re set loose on the fictional island nation of Panau in Southeast Asia to find and kill your one time friend and mentor.


Thief (Xbox 360)

Thief PS4 Xbox One

Step into the silent shoes of Garrett, a dark and solitary thief with an unrivalled set of skills. The most challenging heists, the most inaccessible loot and the best kept secrets: nothing is out of your reach.  Explore the sick and troubled City, from its shady back alleys to the heights of its rooftops.


There you have it: Games with Gold for the month of June. Remember, you still have a few days left to download May’s games, so if you haven’t jumped on the Xbox Games Store yet, be sure to do so before Monday.
