Just a reminder that Ubisoft/Ivory Tower’s open world drive-em-up The Crew is now available for Xbox One Gold subscribers. The game has come a long way since its launch – we reviewed the game and also the major expansion and it will make for a good distraction for those counting the days until Forza Horizon 3 arrives. Grocs has even provided a few handy tips for making money in the game.
And for both the Xbox 360 and One Gold subscribers there’s (via backward compatibility) XCOM: Enemy Unknown; 2K/Firaxis’ reboot of the alien squad battling strategy franchise (try saying that three times quickly). It’s been a while now since we reviewed it but with the sequel coming soon to the current gen consoles it’s a great opportunity to check out a challenging game that will soak up a few of your hours too.
With the prospect of future Xbox platforms being able to play these games too it’s not a bad idea simply to ensure they are added to your library as there might be a rainy day or two down the road where one of them is exactly what you are looking for.
