Watch Dogs and Dragon Age Origins now available on Games With Gold

Its reached June 16th (just where is this year going?), which means that 2 new Games With Gold are available for that magic price of FREE!

This time, its Watch Dogs and Dragon Age Origins that are available, and by my reckoning thats at least 200 hours of gaming for zero pounds. Watch Dogs took a little bit of criticism on release but I played it to death on release and loved it. Dragon Age Origins, although not my cup of tea, was critically acclaimed.

Links to the 2 games on Xbox.co.uk can be found here – Watch Dogs and Dragon Age Origins.

And don’t forget the awesome Speedrunners is still available if you are after some 4 player insane multiplayer action! Link here – Speedrunners.
