With Xbox Games with Gold having a slow start this month with “Defense Grid 2,” Sunset Overdrive” and “Grid 2” for Xbox One, fans were disappointed citing that Microsoft could have offered better titles. That being said, the American company is arguably getting back on track with a promise of better games coming into the new month.

The roster of titles has already been updated for Xbox 360 gamers with the addition of “Peggle” and “Costume Quest 2” The titles are already available following the mid-monthly refresh that took place yesterday, May 16.

“Costume Quest 2” will be available to download until the second week of June, while “Defense Grid 2” as well as “Peggle” will only be available until the end of the month.

Here’s the full list of May 2016 Games with Gold for the Xbox One and Xbox 360:

Aside from “Costume Quest,” Microsoft has not yet revealed any other games that will be available come June. However, with E3 2016 nearing, there might be a plethora of games that will come via the feature as a kick off for the event.

“Defense Grid 2,” normally priced at $15, is a tower defense video game which was released in September of 2014. It gives players the role of the commander tasked to defend bases, colonies, and space stations against extraterrestrials attempting to escape their respective realms.
