Free Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag but cannot install

I "purchased" this free game on 11 July: Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag.

Today I tried to install/download from my XBox One console but failed, got the message I need to activate my XBox Live.

Why do I need to activate my XBox Live? I had already "purchased" 2 other free games already.

Do you have Gold on the account your attempted to download it from?

Games for Gold for the Xbox One requires you to have an Active Xbox Live subscription to play them.

I don't understand. I have downloaded 2 games with XBox Live Gold in July and played already.

Did you have Gold when you played the games?

Basically, you can only download the free games from Games for Gold when you have a gold account, as the name suggests.

However, the Xbox 360 games are yours to keep forever, the Xbox One games are not and you can only play the Xbox One games while you have an active Xbox Live Gold subscription.
