Xbox Games with Gold for July Includes Fantastic Games Like Inside and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Xbox users are receiving some must play games like Inside this July via Games with Gold.

Microsoft has come out and announced the games that Xbox Live subscribers can download for free next month with Games with Gold. Those games are Inside, Big Crown: Showdown, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and Meet the Robinsons.

The two heavy hitters here are Inside and Castlevania: Symphony of the NightInside is the follow up to Playdead’s Limbo. While it isn’t connected its predecessor it is similar when it comes to gameplay. Originally released in 2016, Inside is a game where you play as a boy who travels through a dystopian world. In the game, you solve puzzles and try to avoid death. We loved Inside for it’s “vague narrative, excellent environmental storytelling, and clever gameplay.”

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is considered one of the greatest platformers of all time and a game that most would say is a must play. If you end up liking Castlevania after trying Symphony of the Night via Games with Gold, it may tantalize you to get the recently released Castlevania: Anniversary Collection or the new spiritual successor Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.

The games will be available for free during the following dates:

  • Inside July 1 – 31
  • Big Crown: Showdown July 16 – Aug 15
  • Castlevania: Symphony of the Night July 1 – 15
  • Meet the Robinsons July 16 – 31

Personally, I think this is a solid lineup this month with two fantastic games being available to grab for free. Also, having a lesser known game like Big Crown: Showdown as a part of this month’s lineup will expose it to gamers who probably would have never give it the time of day. Below, you can watch a trailer showing off each game in action. If you want to pick up a Games with Gold Subscription in order to try these games, you can do so right now on Amazon.
