Today, Microsoft announced its Xbox Live Games With Gold for June 2019, which will include NHL 19, Rivals of Aether, Portal: Still Alive, and Earth Defense Force 2017. In other words, if you're a subscriber to Xbox Live Gold, you'll be getting some hockey and platform fighting on Xbox One next month and some gems on Xbox 360, which will be playable on Xbox One, thanks to backwards compatibility.
As always, the games will be released at different times, and only be available for a very limited time. If you miss the download, that's it. The games will return to full price. Here's a breakdown on when each will become available to download and how much money you're saving this month:
