Ah, we love the Xbox Games With Gold scheme and we love it even more when it brings us great classics for nothing. Today, we’re being given the opportunity to download the awesome Monkey Island: SE for free. What’s not to like?
Available to download for nothing right now, Monkey Island: SE has been stripped of its usual £7.99 price tag for the next couple of weeks. Obviously as is the way with the entire Games With Gold scheme, you’ll need a valid Gold subscription, but if you’re one of the smart cookies who has that anyways, then you can get access to one of the most important games of gaming history. You only have until the 15th November to get your download rolling though.
It may not be a massive saving, but the opportunity to relive the glory days on either Xbox 360 or Xbox One is far too good to turn down. Make your way over to the Xbox Games Store and grab it pronto.
