Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain and Vanquish are part of the Xbox Games with Gold program in May

Also a few others

May’s Xbox Games with Gold offerings are confirmed, and as usual it’s a pretty good mix. The big highlights are easily Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain, a game that everyone needs to have played at some point, as well as Vanquish, the Platinum classic. Also on offer are Super Mega Baseball 2, and Sega Vintage Collection: Streets of Rage.

The latter two are by way of Xbox 360 backward compatibility — one of the nifty perks of the Xbox platform, as 360 games in the Gold program are automatically upgraded to work on Xbox One.

Game preservation!
