There shouldn’t be a man, woman or child in this world who isn’t interested in freebies. And that is why the Xbox Games With Gold scheme is just so damn good – the arrival of free games every few weeks is one that should never be ignored. That is what is happening again today as the latest title to make the most of the Xbox Games With Gold scheme gets stripped of the usual price tag – Super Bomberman R.
Usually setting you back £34.99, for the next month or so Super Bomberman R is free to purchase and download on Xbox One. Now, whilst that is a more than decent saving in its own right, the fact that Super Bomberman R only actually released on Xbox One less than a year ago makes it an even bigger and even more delightful freebie.
By now we should all know the basic premise of Bomberman – after all, it’s one of the most iconic of all videogames – and Super Bomberman R really does just build on that idea. Blowing up your foes in the quickest time possible may seem ridiculously easy, but when you mix in some fast paced action, a Story Mode which caters for either the solo player or cooperative buddies, a competitive Grand Prix mode in which teamwork is vital and the usual classical affair found in Battle mode, then you’ll see what Super Bomberman R has to offer.
That said, it’s not without faults and unfortunately that solo campaign comes across as pretty uninteresting, leaving all the excitement to the multiplayer scene. However, with the move to a free download via Games With Gold, we can see Super Bomberman R thriving in the online world, with the huge influx of players filling out that ultimate Battle mode.
If you wish to be one of those and want to see what a free copy of Super Bomberman R on Xbox One is all about, then hop on over to the Xbox Store, flash your valid Xbox Live Gold membership to the bouncer on the door and get your download moving. You’ve got until the middle of March to ensure that the game is yours to keep forever more.
Should you wish to know more about the free Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles that are being given away through the Xbox Games With Gold scheme for February 2019, then we’ve got a fairly in-depth article. Make sure you check it out.
