Dead Island was fantastic. It was a breath of fresh air for the zombie slaying genre. Thanks to the Games with Gold promo, you can have it for free if you’re on Xbox Live from now through the 16th.

Since we’re in the business of recommending great multiplayer games, we feel this is an opportunity that should be shared. If you never got a chance to try it for whatever reason, now is the time. On the 16th, the free game switches to Toy Soldiers: Cold War. I can’t say I’ve ever played that one, but you can’t beat free games.

4 players explore a zombie infected island in search of a way to escape. There’s an ever-present sense of dread. Combat is tense, visceral, and fun.

However, whatever you do, avoid Dead Island: Riptide. Just trust me on that.
