First up is Assassin's Creed Chronicles Russia for Xbox One. Xbox 360 Games with GoldSonic and the All-Stars cast line up on the starting grid once again to battle for supremacy in the ultimate race. Set in early 20th century Russian Federation during the October Revolution, the game follows Assassin Nikolai Orelov as he infiltrates a Templar base to retrieve an artifact and a princess. Assassin's Creed Chronicles has been a part of Games with Gold in the past with India so the next game being Russian Federation shouldn't be much of a surprise.
The Smite Gold Bundle is the second game offered for Xbox One subscribers in June. This may not sit well with some people as SMITE is already a free-to-play game. The pack, worth $100, includes twenty extra gods and over fifty bonus items such as skins, announcer packs, and more. Like past Games With Gold titles, both Xbox 360 titles are backward-compatible and can be played on the Xbox One. Transform your vehicles mid-race from auto, boat, and plane as you try to win on land, sea, and air. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is available June 1 to June 15. Recently an image has been making the rounds online that shows the full Games With Gold lineup for Xbox Live Gold users. New levels, vehicles and modes like 2-player split-screen, will let you build and battle your way out of trouble like never before!
