Xbox Games with Gold June 2019 line-up revealed

It’s that time again! The Xbox Games with Gold June 2019 free games were announced today. This month, the Xbox One freebies include EA SPORTS NHL 19 and Rivals of Aether. On Xbox 360 (and Xbox One through backwards compatibility) Gold subscribers will get Portal: Still Alive and Earth Defense Force 2017. With a value (ERP) of $105, it’s well worth getting these titles downloaded, even if you aren’t planning to play them right away.

Sports fans who haven’t yet invested in EA SPORTS NHL 19, will soon be able to get the game at no additional cost. This is the latest title in the hockey series by EA, meaning it has a bustling online mode that will match you up against similarly skilled opponents. Then there’s the offline portion of the game, where you can refine your skills while playing against AI.

Play on outdoor rinks and journey from the ponds to the pros in new and returning modes. Compete with and against 200 of the greatest hockey legends to hit the ice, including Gretzky. New gameplay tech delivers explosive-edge skating with more acceleration, speed and responsiveness.

Rivals of Aether is yet another indie hit that deserves some attention, especially now that it is free! This is a fighting game where the combatants utilize the four elements of fire, water, air, and earth. Got a friend who’s also subscribed to Xbox Live Gold? Good! You can fight against them in the online mode.

Rivals of Aether is an indie fighting game set in a world where warring civilizations summon the power of Fire, Water, Air, and Earth. Play with up to four players locally or up to two players online.

Portal: Still Alive and Earth Defense Force 2017 are the free Xbox 360 games for June 2019. Of course, these are both backwards compatible, meaning they’ll also work on Xbox One. The original Portal is a fantastic puzzle game with a compelling story, with Earth Defense Force 2017 gives you a gun to point in the direction of an incoming alien force!

Xbox Games with Gold are available monthly for anyone with an Xbox Live Gold membership. Along with free games to try for a month, Gold memberships come with discounts, online multiplayer perks, and more. Membership costs $9.99 per month, $24.99 quarterly, or $59.99 for a year.
