Today, Microsoft announced the Xbox Games with Gold offering for September 2017, which are the on-the-house games you will receive if you’re an Xbox Gold subscriber for said month.

As always, the offering comes packing two Xbox Games games and two Xbox 360 games that are playable on Xbox One via handy-dandy Backwards Compatibility.

Below, you can view the full line-up:

  • Forza Motorsport 5 (Xbox One) (Available September 1 – 31) (Normally $39.99 USD)
  • Oxenfree (Xbox One) (Available September 16 – October 15) (Normally $19.99 USD)
  • Hydro Thunder Hurricane (Xbox 360 and Xbox One via backward compatibility) (September 1 – 15) (Normally $14.99 USD)
  • Battlefield 3 (Xbox 360 and Xbox One via backward compatibility) (September 16 – 30) (Normally $19.99 USD)

According to Microsoft, September’s lineup provides over $94 dollars in value and the potential to rack up 3600 in gamerscore.

As you may know, Oxenfree is a supernatural mystery graphic adventure game that hit in 2016 from developer Night School Studio. The indie critical darling won multiple game of the year nominations and awards, and is personally one of my favorite games to release last year. Meanwhile, Forza Motorsport 5 needs little introduction. It was the fifth Motosport title in the iconic racing sim series and the sixth game overall, and was notably an Xbox One launch title back in 2013.

Below, you can check out a new trailer which highlights the offering:
