Xbox LIVE Gold members can get their hands on THQ’s third Saints Row game and an indie gem from 1 May tomorrow.

It’s that time once again where the free games for Xbox Live Gold members are unveiled. Over on Major Nelson’s blog earlier he revealed that the free games to download for May will be Dust: An Elysian Tail, and Saints Row: The Third.

From Thursday 1 May you will be able to download the 2D side-scroller Dust: An Elysian Tail, up until 15 May. In the world of Falana you will play Dust, a warrior who wields a sentient blade, and who must discover his own past. The game incorporates RPG elements like experience points and levelling up, as well as NPCs to interact with.

On 16 May you will be able to download Saints Row: The Third, the third game in the Saints Row series, surprisingly enough. A much more wacky version of GTA, where you can wield weapons such as ‘The Penetrator’, and customise your character in many different ways. We’ll bring you more info of Saints Row when it becomes free on 16 May.

Have a look at the trailer for Dust below, in preparation for your download of it tomorrow – enjoy.
