Xbox Games With Gold August Lineup a Win for Subscribers

Every now and then, your respective subscription-based online gaming service will really knock it out of the park with their free offerings, and it looks like this coming August will be one of those for Xbox Live Gold subscribers.

Firstly, Xbox One owners will get free entry to Ubisoft’s For Honor, which made waves last year with its medieval PvP action and has a big update coming soon, as well as Forza Horizon 2, where players can speed across Southern France and Northern Italy setting up music festivals and racing competitions across the land. If you haven’t played any of the Forza Horizon games, this may be a good time to get a feel for the series ahead of Forza Horizon 4’s launch this October.

Subscribers will also be treated to Xbox 360 backwards compatible titles Dead Space 3, and Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. Not much has been heard about the Epic Mickey franchise in quite some time, but the creative director of Dead Space 3 recently opened up about what a fourth installment could have looked like before the studio was shuttered late last year.

Forza Horizon 2 and Dead Space 3 will be available from August 1st to 15th, while For Honor and Epic Mickey 2 can be snagged from August 16th to 31st.

In the meantime, Games With Gold’s current offering is available until this coming Tuesday, so if you haven’t added this month’s free games to your library you still have a bit of time (but don’t forget!).
