Gears of War 4 Leads Xbox Games with Gold Titles for August

Gears of War 4 Leads Xbox Games with Gold Titles for August

Microsoft's Games with Gold lineup for August is one of the strongest that has been seen in months.

With August nearly upon us, Microsoft has today unveiled just which games will be arriving for free next month as part of the Games with Gold service. Honestly, it might just be one of the best months in recent memory.

Likely the most notable title in August is that of Gears of War 4. The first Gears entry on Xbox One will be available throughout the entire month starting on August 1 and lasting until the 31st. The timing of Gears of War 4 being added here is surely no accident as it comes just before the launch of Gears 5 in September.

Also going free this month is that of Forza Motorsport 6. In lieu of a new Forza title being released this year, it seems as though Microsoft will just be making one of the franchise’s past entries more widely available. Forza Motorsport 6 can be downloaded starting on August 16 and will last until September 15.

And for the older titles this month, Torchlight will be available from August 1 through the 15th. This game’s addition also comes right before the release of a sequel, Torchlight II, which arrives in September.

Lastly, Castlevania Lords of Shadow rounds out the list. While it might not be the same as the Castlevania titles you grew up with, Lords of Shadow is largely a fantastic game that is worth your time. It’ll be available starting on August 16 and lasting until the 31st.

As always, you can watch the new trailer for this month’s Games with Gold lineup as well if you’d like to see more of each title in action.
