Enjoy. You do not need an Xbox Live Gold sub to claim the game.


EDIT: As of Jan 21, the game is officially Backwards Compatible with the Xbox One.

Quote from Major Nelson :
And finally, Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners in select regions can download The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings for free on Xbox.com anytime between now and February 5.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

You do not need Gold to claim this.

It is free for everyone until 2/5.

Nice find. This is likely a mistake. Get it while it's still free. It's not mentioned as being part of Games with Gold.

Update: Not a mistake. Officially Xbox One backwards compatible now. Free 'til Feb 5th.

However, this was offered for free via Games with Gold back in January 2015.

Not all Xbox 360 games are backwards compatible w/ Xbox One. There's always a possibility that this could become backwards compatible in the future. Not a bad idea to get it while it's free even if only own a Xbox One. Nice to have it in case you ever do get an Xbox 360 as well.

Got this when it was given away with GWG, nice though. I'm guessing it will be one of the BC games added this month, which is why the mistake came about.
