Xbox 360 owners have been wondering when Halo 3 would be made free via the Xbox LIVE Games for Gold program since it was first announced earlier this year. Wonder no more as Microsoft finally revealed when the game will be available as a free download along with Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes.
Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes will be the first Game for Gold title that will be free in October starting at the first of the month. Halo 3 will follow on Oct. 16.
The Xbox LIVE Games for Gold program makes two games available as a free download to Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers each month. Once the game is purchased and download, it is yours to keep even if your Xbox LIVE Gold subscription expires.
An Xbox LIVE Gold membership goes for $59.99 a year but can typically be found for $10 to $20 cheaper at retailers like Amazon. Three-month subscriptions are available as well for $24.99.
