Xbox made one of the best games of all time completely free to many Xbox 360, One, Series S, and Series X users. Furthermore, subscribers of Xbox Live Gold are getting 2 new games, which will also be completely free namely, Garou: Mark of the Wolves and Yooka-Laylee.
These 2 additions were expected, however, the 100% discount on Street Fighter IV by Capcom and Xbox came as quite a surprise. Regardless of this surprising turn of events, non-subscribers of Xbox Live Gold are not getting lucky with this deal as the freebie is also limited to those with a subscription to XLG.
Street Fighter IV will be available to all the subscribers who have maintained a subscription on the last three generations of the Xbox platform. All the subscribers mentioned before can download the game and keep it as long as they maintain an active XLG subscription.
In case you lose your subscription for any reason, you will consequently lose your access to the download. Unless you subscribe back up, you will gain access back to the game and every other free game downloaded courtesy of your subscription.
On Twitter, Wario64 pointed out that the new free game is easily accessible with XGG Brazil, although you don’t need to make a Brazil account to avail the offer.
As for the game itself, Street Fighter IV debuted back in 2008 via Capcom and Dimps to a 94 on Metacritic, making it one of the highest-rated games of the generation and one of the best fighting games of all time.
