From October 16th – 31st, Halo 3 will be free for all Xbox Live Gold members as part of Games with Gold! Announced at E3 this year, the Games with Gold program gives every Xbox Live Gold subscriber two free Xbox 360 games per month until the release of Xbox One. If you haven’t yet played Halo 3, would like to “Finish the Fight” one more time, or just want to play some multiplayer, head to the Xbox Live Marketplace to download. And don't forget to pick up the Mythic II Map Pack, which is also 50% off during this time.
In Halo 3, the Master Chief returns to uncover an ancient secret, and brings the conflict between the Covenant, the Flood and the entire human race to a dramatic, pulse-pounding climax. Keep the gameplay going when the campaign ends, and extend your experience with Halo 3 multiplayer. Check out the great game add-on deals, discounts, and free maps here.
We are thrilled that fans are being introduced to the precursor to Halo 4, and excited that new players may have a chance to learn about (and play) Halo 3 through this program. If you have questions about the current Halo 3 playlist offerings, DLC, and more, head over to the Halo 3 FAQ.
