Why should you let a few dollars stop you from fulfilling your dream of mowing down zombies with a motorcycle/chainsaw combination? Thanks to Microsoft, you won't have to deal with such a burden.

The company launched its latest free Xbox Live Gold game, or in this case, games. Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero are now available to download free-of-charge from the Marketplace, giving you the ability to create astounding weapons and mow down legions of undead.

The games are free for a limited time, running from today through the end of the month. Check them out while you can – you might just prepare yourself for the next-gen onslaught that is Dead Rising 3, which is coming to Xbox One later this year.

No word yet on what the next Xbox Live Gold freebie will be, but Halo 3 is still in the pipeline. We'll let you know once they're announced.
