Saints Row The Third Screen 1

May 2014’s second free game is now available as part of Microsoft’s Xbox Live Games with Gold program, for Xbox 360 owners.

Earlier this month you could pick up the indie gem, Dust: An Elysian Tail, for free as part of the Xbox Live Games with Gold program that Microsoft offer their Gold members. From today you can fire up your Xbox 360 and download this month’s second free title, Saints Row: The Third.

As the title suggests, Saints Row: The Third is the third game in the Saints Row series. Set in the fictional city of Steelport, you will assume control as the leader of the Third Street Saints, a prominent gang in the city. A war between the gangs in Steelport is escalating, and in order to counter this an elite taskforce is deployed in the city named STAG (Special Tactical Anti-Gang).

Earlier this week Xbox announced that Gold subscribers will be treated to Dark Souls and Charlie Murder next month, along with a third free title; Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, as a thank you for using the program and to celebrate Games with Gold’s one year anniversary.

In addition, it was announced that Xbox One owners will also begin to receive the benefits of the program starting in June with their first free titles; Max Curse of Brotherhood and Halo: Spartan Assault.

Take a look at the trailer for Saints Row: The Third below - WARNING: Strong language, violence, and absolutely ridiculous images.
