As well as offering exclusive discounts and gifting access to multiplayer mayhem, Microsoft’s Xbox Live Gold membership club also gives its members a selection of free games every month for the Xbox One and Xbox 360.
An Xbox Live membership won’t you back too much money, either: at the moment, the official Microsoft website will sell you a 1-month membership for $9.99, a 3-month membership for $24.99, or a 12-month membership for $59.99. You can also buy a membership through Amazon, where the prices are sometimes a bit cheaper.
In this article, we’ll keep you updated about all the free games that Microsoft is giving to Xbox Live Gold members. Usually, four or five titles are added to the service per month, but make sure to snag them quickly as Microsoft removes them about a month after they’ve been added to Games with Gold. Luckily, you get to keep whatever you downloaded in time!
Here’s the rundown for this month…
Xbox Live Games with Gold – August 2020
Here are the games that are coming to Xbox Live Games with Gold in September 2020 as well as the Xbox team’s descriptions of the titles.
“Take back New York City after it has fallen into chaos. This online shooter is a groundbreaking experience, combining robust RPG customization and tactical action combat. Play a massive co-op campaign, take on other agents, and earn cutting edge gear, as you fulfill your objective: protect what remains and restore hope.”
The Book of Unwritten Tales 2
“The legends have foretold it and prophecies predicted it: The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is available in September’s Games with Gold lineup. The continuation of the point-and-click adventure saga hilariously spoofs some of the most beloved and famous fantasy stories ever written. With over 20 hours of story, help the quirky cast of characters fulfill their destiny in the tricky world of Avantasia.”
de Blob 2
“Set off on an action-packed colorful adventure. The Inkies are back with a new plot to rid the world of color and it is up to Blob to stop them. Featuring a unique painting functionality as the main game mechanic, this platformer showcases 12 new single player levels, multiplayer support, and epic boss battles.”
Armed and Dangerous
“Capture victory in 12,000 bullets or less in this classic Xbox title. Meet the Lionhearts, a smack-talking band of rebels on an impossible mission to save the world – that is if they don’t burn it down first. With a witty story that parodies popular media, wield outlandish weapons and shoot your way through 21 action-packed levels.”
We’ll keep this list updated as Microsoft unveils more Games with Gold for Xbox Live. In the meantime, check out the free games for PlayStation Plus members. Additionally, you can check out the latest Xbox Games Pass additions here, if you fancy an on-demand subscription service with over 100 titles to choose from. We think it’s well worth it.
