Yesterday was Dead Island's last day of free availability for Xbox Live Gold members. Toy Soldiers: Cold War is the new free title up for grabs.

The Games with Gold program offers two free games a month to Xbox Live Gold members with one game available at the front end of the month, and one game available at the back end. This month's freebies are Dead Island and Toy Soldiers: Cold War, and the former has been replaced by the latter.
