Microsoft Announces August’s Free Games With Gold Titles

Hot on the heals of Sony’s PlayStation Plus free games for August announcement, Microsoft has announced their line up of Free Games with Gold.  As usual, it includes four games in total: two for Xbox 360 and two for Xbox One.


Free Games With Gold


Starting off with the Xbox 360, members will be able to snag the acclaimed action game Bayonetta for the first half of the month.  On the 16th, Red Faction: Armageddon will be made available for download.  The cool thing is that both of these games are playable on the Xbox One via backwards compatibility.

As far as the Xbox Ones offering for August, members will get to download Slime Rancher, a first-person sim that allows you to manage a farm of adorable little slime creatures.  This game has been in Early Access on PC for a while now and August 1 is its official release date so Gold members will get it hot off the presses.  Then on August 16, Trials Fusion will be downloadable for free.
