Games With Gold Reminder: Halo 3

Posted by Anthony Bacchus

Promotion only until the end of October

Right on schedule, the second freebie of the month for those with an Xbox Live Gold membership is Halo 3. It will be available digitally from now up until the end of the month, otherwise it will bounce back to the cost of $14.99.

Remember that you don't actually need to download the entire 5.72GB game right away. It's much easier to redeem from the Xbox Games Store, then simply cancel the download afterwards. That way, it will be in your download queue for safe keeping for that rainy day when you'll want to revisit Master Chief's victory over the Covenant.

When Microsoft announced their Games with Gold initiative at E3 this year, Halo 3 was the first game announced that was promised. Weirdly enough, Microsoft chose to offer Defense Grid instead to kick off the program. Oh well, better late than never, right?

About time. I have been waiting for this game since the promotion launched. I will be honest I have never really played a Halo game (played some multi player matches with my brother in law on Halo 2 but that was the extent of it). I have heard some good things about this series so now might be a good time to check it out.
