As with last month, Xbox One will get two dedicated titles, and two Xbox 360 titles, as well, through Xbox One Backward Compatibility, for a total of four completely free titles thanks to Games with Gold.

May brings Defense Grid 2, a tower defense gem from the folks at Hidden Path Entertainment & 505 Games – followed by the quirky and endlessly charming, Costume Quest 2 from Double Fine Productions and Majesco. On the Xbox 360, Xbox Live Gold members start the month with Codemasters’ high-speed dynamic racer GRID 2, followed by EA’s ever-popular puzzle classic: Peggle.

As usual, all games are available only for a limited time, as part of the ongoing Games with Gold program, so sign up now to get in on the action!

The next evolution of tower defense arrives with Defense Grid 2, bringing new additions and strategies that will force you to think and adapt on the fly. With dynamic content that changes gameplay and millions of ways to beat a level, your victories are your own, and you can always come back for more. With cooperative and competitive game modes to boot, you’ll have plenty to explore in this sci-fi strategy game.

On May 16th, play as one of two heroic twins who must save Halloween in Costume Quest 2. Seek out candy and costumes with turn-based battles that always feel fresh, and fight against time to stop Dr. Orel White from taking over the world.

On Xbox 360 (and Xbox One via backward compatibility), start off May in style behind the wheel in GRID 2. With stunning visuals, tracks spanning the globe and the thrilling TrueFeel handling system, you’ll be able to race with confidence and flair. Pick your car – choose from a variety of vehicles spanning four decades, from classic favorites to modern supercars – then blaze your way to the top of a new world of motorsport.

From dazzling speed to soothing puzzles, come back on May 16 for the peg-busting, ball-bouncing fun of the PopCap classic, Peggle. Spanning over 50 levels, with mystical powers, multiplayer face-offs, and loads and loads of bonus points, Peggle is pure entertainment.
