Xbox Games with Gold for May gets unexpected free game

Microsoft has seemingly added an unannounced game to May’s Games with Gold lineup. Xbox 360 title Orcs Must Die! is now showing as free to claim if you have an Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

As spotted by the folks over on hotukdeals, those with Gold can now claim Orcs Must Die! for free as part of Games with Gold. We’re not sure why this has been made available as it was not part of the announced Games with Gold lineup for May, but hey, we’re not complaining!

Orcs Must Die! free with Games with Gold

Orcs Must Die! was previously included in December 2021’s Games with Gold (and was a GwG title in other regions before that), so chances are you’ve already claimed it and have it in your library. However, if you’re like me and you did forget to grab it, you can claim it again now.

Orcs Must Die!

Orcs Must Die!

Slice them, burn them, skewer them, and launch them – no matter how you get it done, orcs must die in this fantasy action-strategy game from Robot Entertainment.As a powerful War Mage with dozens of weapons, spells, and traps at your fingertips, defend twenty-four fortresses from multiple enemy types, including ogres, hellbats, and of course, a bunch of orcs. Battle across three difficulty levels, including brutal Nightmare mode!

We can confirm that this is working in the UK (and maybe the US), but we’re unsure if the game is currently free in other regions, so if you are from elsewhere in the world, let us know down in the comments if you too managed to claim this one.
