There’s nothing quite like a gaming session full of chaos with a few friends and now you’ll be able to add the wild party experience of the Marooners on Xbox One to your list of options for free, as it’s been stripped of its price tag thanks to the Games With Gold scheme for May.

Marooners is a party game for up to six players to get involved in, either online or locally – with bots on hand to fill up any gaps – and the sole aim is to earn more gold than anyone else to be crowned the winner. There are 25 different party and arena-based activities on offer, with a host of quirky characters and weapons to unlock through gameplay. It’ll have you fighting each other on ice, collecting treasure, avoiding deadly boulders and running across platforms that disappear once traverse, to name just a few of the ideas present.

Whilst you can simply play a selection of mini-games in a row, there’s also a Chaos option that swaps mini-games right in the middle of the action to ensure it’s even more frenetic. So if that sounds exciting enough for your next gathering, Marooners is available for free right now on Xbox One for Xbox Live Gold members as part of Games With Gold scheme for May. Just head over and download it from the Xbox Store before 31st May, because then it’ll go back to costing £7.99.
