Games with gold question

I know gold is required to play them but is a constant net connection a must as well? I'm waiting for an apartment to be ready to move in and where I'm staying my only net access is when tethered via cell phone.

Slade,

 Actually Gold is not required to play the game, but a gold subscription is required when you initially download the game under the Games with Gold program. After downloading you can play the game offline (assuming it doesn't require a live connection for certain aspects) without a gold subscription as long as you are playing on the same console where the purchase/download was done.

Hey Elf, Gold is required in order to play the Games With Gold games on the Xbox One.  The rules for the program for the One did state that if you let your Gold membership lapse the Games With Gold games would be unplayable until you renewed it.  Similar to the Playstation Plus program.

No worries.  We all confuse the two sections from time to time.

Maybe I wasn't clear before, my question is do I have to be online any time I want to play them or do I just have to connect every so often like how games were originally going to work on the one

If you have a gold account, then you can play the game offline. For example, last month we had Assassin's Creed Black Flag. Once downloaded and if you are still have a gold membership, you can play the game without an internet connection. As I mentioned earlier, you will be limited on capabilities. In this example, multiplayer and Fleet Mission reports in single player would be inaccessible while playing offline.
