OK, so I'm a little late with this, but I want to put it up nevertheless, because I imagine some of you may have forgotten. For those of you with an Xbox 360 or Xbox One console you'll probably know that the start of a new month signals a bunch of free games to download. Now that we're in May the Games with Gold program from Xbox now offers up said latest set of games.

The news dropped of this month's offerings last week.

Xbox One owners can download CastleStorm: Definitive Edition throughout May. The game is a side-on 2D archery game, essentially. Players must defend their own castle, while also attacking their enemy's, using medieval ballista and deploying troops. Take a look at the trailer for CastleStorm below.

Pool Nation FX, one of April's free game offerings on Xbox One, will also be available to download throughout May. Take a look over here for more info.

Xbox 360 owners can download the first of their two free games right now - Mafia II - through 15th May. This action game from 2K Games puts players in the 1940s and 50s, in a city called 'Empire Bay', a fictional city based on the likes of New York City and Chicago, as you work your way up through the ranks of the mob. Take a look at the trailer below.

On 16th May you'll no longer be able to download Mafia II, but F1 2013 will become available for free download. We'll bring you a reminder and more info when the time comes.
