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 – July 2020
Here are the games that are coming to Xbox Live Games with Gold in July 2020 as well as the Xbox team’s descriptions of the titles.
WRC 8 FIA World Rally Championship (July 1-30 on Xbox One)

Dunk Lords (July 16-Aug. 15 on Xbox One)
“You can ball… but can you fight? Find out in this fantastic two-on-two basketball beat ‘em up. Choose from 20 of the baddest ballers around, each with special attacks and insane abilities, and battle it out on 15 unique courts.

“Get ready to jump to a new level of adventure!

Bounce, run, chant, and battle enormous bosses in this beautifully animated and enjoyable platformer.”
