Microsoft and Gameloft are giving away several games to all Nokia X devices until August 31
As Microsoft's low-end family of Android-powered devices has recently grown in size (thanks to the Nokia X2), it seems more than natural that Redmond is giving away some freebies to the users of the Nokia X family. This time, the tech giant has teamed up with Gameloft, one of the largest publishers of mobile games, in order to procure its latest promotion. The latter has made several of its games available for free for all Nokia X devices (Nokia X, Nokia X+, Nokia XL, and the Nokia X2) until August 31.
The games in question are only three, but then again, they are not only available for free, but also come with some premium in-game content right out of the box, so Nokia X users shouldn't raise their voices. If you are on the verge of the World Cup craze, then Gameloft's Real Football 2014 should fulfill your craving for even more football (or soccer, as they call it in the US). If the most popular sport in the world is not your thing, though, Asphalt 8: Airborne (with included Prime Car Pack, yay!) might turn out to be another pretty decent offering for all gearheads that sport a Nokia X derivative. Still, if neither football, nor racing float your boat, then Dungeon Hunter 4, Gameloft's popular fantasy RPG, might be exactly your thing.
The games and the included free content are normally worth around EUR 40 (~$55). In order to get the freebies, one should open Nokia Store and tap the Exclusive Free Offer category, which can be found in the Collections tab. Then each of the aforementioned games can be downloaded for free.
What do you make of Microsoft and Gameloft's promotion?

Can the Nokia X even handle the graphically intense games Gameloft makes?

Exactly! It will take 2 seconds lags for each action of the game!

That was a honest question, not a sarcastic remark. Well, sorta.I know WP runs smooth on limited specs, but games like Asphalt and Rival Knights can lag or stutter from time to time on my LG G Pad 8.3, and while its specs aren't "flagship" anymore, they're still very capable and far outstrip the specs of any of the Nokia X's. I mean, technically speaking I can run Skyrim and Portal 2, on my aging laptop, but that doesn't mean it's a good idea.

Well considering the processor is a SD S4 play, dual core 1ghz cortex-A5 with 512mb of ram the slowest of all Arm class CPUs. This should tell everyone everything they need to know about the Nokia X. The X+, and XL is the same CPU only with 768mb of ram.
The X2 is a SD 200 dual core 1.2ghz cortex-A7 CPU and it has 1gb of ram. These are no speed deamons by any chance.

I saw asphalt 8 runs fine without any lag. Don't know about other games.

Asphalt 8: Airborne and Real Football 2014 are awesome games. Love it.

BTW PA what was Cortana's prediction for yesterday's match b/w Brazil and Germany? And what about today's match b/w Netherlands and Argentina?
Brazil's defence looked very weak, such a huge defeat in Semis.
I hope Argentina wins today's match and Messi would do some magic.

IMO Brazil missed T Silva more than Neymar, David Luiz was terribly out of position most of the time, giving Germany to much space, Germany sure did punish Brazil
I hope the Netherlands win the cup, I feel sorry for them as they somehow have never won it yet even though they have had many great players

I knew Germany would win yesterday match. But 7-1, i never expected that much difference in scores. Brazil really humiliated by germans. Also don't think Argentina wins today, Though messi might surprise us.

the new Nokia/Microsoft "X2" smart could probably run these games because it has a better CPU and more Ram than the previous 3- X Phones. Folks Microsoft spent 7 billion dollars to buy most of Nokia mobile smart phone/Cell phone assets. To get back it's investment money Microsoft WILL continue to make Their Windows smart phones and sell the New "X" Android open source OS smart Phones. Look for an American Version of the X2 to go on sale in the USA before the Christmas shopping season. It will probably have a Pure vue camera on it, a more Powerful CPU and a front facing Camera and the other Goodies a smart phone should have. It will Probably cost more than the Nokia/Microsoft 'X2" However if Microsoft wants it to be a high sales success Microsoft must put the software in their Android Open source OS that will at least allow people to access and use Google play store Apps. it could be called the "X3"
