Try out the Master Chief's first current-gen outing for free

Microsoft has made Halo 3 available for free to Xbox Live Gold subscribers this month.

Halo 3 may be a good five years old now but it is still one of the finest entries in the series and it helped define much of the multiplayer experience that we see on Xbox Live today.

If you haven't played it it is well worth a shout and it has aged not at all badly given that it was released back in 2007. Halo 3 arrives as the free game with Xbox Live Gold this month

To donwload Halo 3 just jump over to the Games tab on the Xbox Dash, select Browse Games and then Free With Gold.
