FYI.. for anyone only on a silver account.
Xbox Live Gold access will be available to everyone for free between now and 8am GMT on 30th September.
You'll also be able to get your hands on a couple of Battle for Middle-Earth II map packs - the first, Aragorn's Journey, will be free between today and 29th September. http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=67760
Even if you dont currently have the game at present (waiting for it to hit the classic range) I believe there is nothing stopping you downloading it now, as it should then be stored as a 'purchase' against your gamer profile for later use or downloading again.
