The lights are on
Starting tomorrow, Assassin’s Creed II will be free on Xbox Live for members with a gold subscription until July 30. It’s typically priced at $19.99.
Announced at E3 in June, the “Games With Gold” program offers two free games each month. The first free July game was Defense Grid: The Awakening, a tower-defense title.
A bevy of Assassin’s Creed content is currently discounted on Xbox Live as well, including full games, DLC, and the Assassin’s Creed III season pass.

Our TakeAssassin's Creed II was one of my favorite games of 2009, right alongside Borderlands and Uncharted 2. This sequel improves on its predecessor in nearly every way. If you haven't yet checked out the Assassin's Creed games, this is an excellent place to start.
No thanks I already beat it.
This is a very underwhelming reward to gold members. Microsoft has to step up their game. Ps plus was giving away saints row 3, dues ex, and just cause 2 when they were relatively new. I hate to sound fanboyish, but Microsoft should really just take some notes from Sony
I'm definitely downloading this.
Holy crap, I love how people will complain about getting things for free.
Sigh. Makes the used copy purchase I made a few days ago seem completely wasted. Oh well, it will look good on the shelf next to the rest of them
I hope I can download it at midnight EST instead of having to wait until tomorrow. I remember buying all the AC games last year around the beginning of July, and spending most of my gaming time playing them. Then sadly I sold them back and now I want them again. So perfect timing.
I'm glad Microsoft has started to do this. I hope it will continue too because during the E3 press conference it seemed to me this was only going to happen until the release of Xbox One. I really hope that's not the case.
I am downloading it as we speak!
Yes I am going to start downloading in a bit after my girl is done watching netflix on the 360. Great game and it's free.
The last good AC game, definitely worth the pick up for those that haven't played it.
Haven't played the sequel and yet I hate the other games...I'll download this just so I know if it's as good as every one says it is.
