Hitman and Earth Defense Force 2025 Among Standout Titles for Games with Gold in September

September's Games with Gold list has been unveiled and it's headlined by Hitman.

Ahead of the start of September in just a few days, Microsoft has today announced what’s on tap for the Games with Gold service in the coming month.

The marquee title for September is definitely that of IO Interactive’s Hitman: The Complete First Season. The game is set to be free for the entirety of September and will include all of the episodes from this generation’s first installment in the new Hitman series. It’s seriously a fantastic game if you haven’t played it before and is a worthy addition to your game library.

As for the other Xbox One title this month, it is that of We Were Here from Total Mayhem Games. We Were Here will be available to download for free starting on September 16 and lasting until October 15.

For the Xbox 360 games this month, we have the ever-wacky Earth Defense Force 2025, which will be available from September 1 through the 15th. Starting on September 16 and then lasting until the end of the month, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will then be the next 360 game available to snag for free. Both of these games are also backward compatible with Xbox One, as well.

All in all, it seems like a decent month for Games with Gold in a general sense. As I said, Hitman is truly great and is worth playing if you haven’t already. The other three titles though could be better, though I’m sure some EDF fans will be pleased to see 2025 hitting this rotation.
