It’s been a tough few months for Xbox gamers looking for decent freebies, with the once great Games With Gold scheme struggling to really provide anything of notable worth, overshadowed by Xbox Game Pass in the process. That changes with the free Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles for June 2019 though, with a stellar lineup of games being gifted out. The first of those is now here and it’s time to embrace EA Sports NHL 19 for all it is worth!
Available right now as a totally free download to Xbox One gamers who have an Xbox Live Gold membership to their name, EA Sports NHL 19 was only released back at the tail end of 2018, but already we are seeing it arrive for free via Games With Gold.
Taking hockey back to its roots is what NHL 19 does best, and no matter whether you wish to play and compete against the greatest hockey names there have ever been, or wish to take it to your mates on the ice, NHL 19 allows for it. Running with an enhanced collision systems which allows for bigger hits, and powered by Real Player Motion Tech, NHL 19 has all the biggest goodies that EA are able to throw at it, making it quite possibly the best EA NHL game of recent times.
Our full review of EA Sports NHL 19 on Xbox One will tell you more about it, perhaps delving into how it doesn’t quite hit perfection but is still a must play for hockey fans around the globe, and once you’ve had a little read, hopping over to the Xbox Store and nabbing that free download should be the next course of action.
Of course, as is the way with these Xbox Games With Gold freebies, you’ve only got a limited time available to make sure your download is moving and in this case, you’ve got until the end of June 2019. After that time, that price will rocket back up to the usual £59.99 level.
