Thread Details

Microsoft Xbox Live Arcade is offering the scrolling shooter game Aegis Wing for Free. This game was originally made for the Xbox 360, but is now availabe to play on the Xbox One as part of the backward compatibility.

Game Info:
Team up with up to three of your friends and prepare yourselves for intense side-scrolling, sci-fi shooting action in Aegis Wing. It is set in the year 2105, when humanity must flee a dying Earth for the distant world Europa. But this new home is soon threatened by a powerful alien race, the Araxia. With stolen Araxian technology, the Europa fleet develops an experimental star fighter and assigns four ace pilots to test it. The Aegis Wing is born, and it becomes your mission to wield this new technology as humanity's last hope for survival. Up to four players can play together either locally or over Xbox LIVE to defeat waves of nefarious Araxian ships and bosses, and can even combine spacecraft in two-, three- or four-ship formations to access powerful Super Weapons.

Aegis Wing was originally conceived by three students and Microsoft Corp. interns – Scott Brodie, Danny Dyer and Matt Monson – during a summer internship at Xbox LIVE Arcade. The students worked in tandem with Carbonated Games to bring the game to the Xbox LIVE Arcade community.

This is an extremely old game that was available probably in 2006/2007. I believe it was coded by a couple of interns as part of a project at Microsoft. I guess now it's backwards compatible with the xbox one.

Trials will work on xbox one for both sales and GwG, but you'll need an active Gold membership to continue playing GwG. On 360, a minimum 1 month sub is needed for sales and GwG but you keep GwG even when your sub lapses.

Anyways, you don't need Gold for these ftp games. There's a truncated list at http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/xbox-one. On your xbox if you navigate to the store on the FrontPage is a heading for Top Free. If you scroll to the end you can select show all, which will take you to the full list.

Ftp xbox one games:
Pinball FX 2, Killer Instinct, Smite, World of Tanks, Frozen Free Fall, Warframe, Xbox Fitness, DoA 5, Happy Wars, Neverwinter, Resident Evil 2 Revelations EP 1, Battle Islands, Powerstar Golf, Magic Duels, Game of Thrones EP 1, AirMech Arena, Gems of War, Onigiri, Pinball Arcade, Tales of the Borderlands EP 1.

I don't have my 360 hooked up, but I think if you browse the store on it there's a section with all the freebies.

Ftp 360 games:

Game of Thrones EP 1, The Walking Dead: Season Two EP 1, The Walking Dead EP 1, The Wolf Among Us EP 1, Aegis Wing, Defiance, Frozen Free Fall, Happy Wars, Harms Way, Pinball FX 2, Spartacus Legends, TotemBall
