I don’t know about you, but to me it feels like so long since we heard about some new Games with Gold. This has been a long old month it seems. Anyway, Major Nelson announced the games we can get our hands on in August yesterday, and they’re not a bad bunch. Remember, you need to be an Xbox Live Gold member to get in on the action.
Beginning on 1st August Xbox 360 owners can freely download Motorcross Madness until 16th August, at which point Bethesda’s Dishonored becomes available until the end of the month. The second of July’s free games, BattleBlock Theater, is still available now, so download it before Friday or you'll miss out.
Also from the 1st August, if you own an Xbox One, you’ll be able to download Crimson Dragon and Strike Suit Zero – these games replace July’s Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition and Max: The Curse of Brotherhood. So, if you’re yet to download July’s games, do so now as there’s only a couple of days left.
The stand out game from August is definitely Dishonored, which mixes action and stealth beautifully in a steampunk-style industrial city. We’ll bring you more about the individual games, and remind you once they’re available, when we get into August.
We now know August's free games, are we happy?
