Today, Microsoft announced the Xbox Games with Gold offering for July 2017, which for those that don’t know, is the on-the-house games you will receive if you’re an Xbox Gold member for said month.

Here’s the full line-up, fresh out the oven:

  • Grow Up (Xbox One) (Available July 1 – 31) (Normally $9.99 USD)
  • Runbow (Xbox One) (Available July 16 – August 15) (Normally $14.99 USD)
  • Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days (Xbox 360 and Xbox One via backward compatibility) (July 1 – 15) (Normally $14.99 USD)
  • LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game (Xbox 360 and Xbox One via backward compatibility) (July 16 – 31) (Normally $19.99 USD)

As you may know, Grow Up is the open-world adventure platforming sequel to Grow Home from developer Ubisoft Reflections. It released in August of 2016, and was received quite well, but not as well as its predecessor. Meanwhile, Runbow, from developer 13AM Games is a bit a of a indie critical darling, garnering a strong 82 Metacritic score when it hit in 2015.

As for the Xbox 360 games, the notable inclusion is Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, the 2010 sequel to Kane & Lynch: Dead Men. It was published by Square Enix and developed by the newly independent Hitman developer IO Interactive.

Below, you can check out a new trailer highlighting the line-up, which saves you $60 USD if you fully take advantage of the offering.
