Games with Gold August free games news
The big Games with Gold August 2020 reveal will be happening later this week for Xbox One and Xbox 360 fans.
The announcement will be made by Microsoft before the end of the month, meaning it will happen by Friday, July 31.
And there’s a good chance that Xbox Live Gold subscribers will have found what new free Xbox One games are being released before then.
July’s lineup was revealed on June 25, so there’s a chance of an early announcement on Monday or Tuesday.
The current lineup includes WRC 8 FIA World Rally Championship and Dunk Lords and these will remain available to download for the next week.
WRC 8 will be replaced on August 1 with a new title, followed by Dunk Lords on August 16.
Last year’s GwG lineup included Big Crown: Showdown and Inside, while the classic titles supplied from the Xbox 360 included Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and Meet The Robinsons.
Microsoft has yet to tease what they have planned and there have been no leaks to confirm what is coming next.
But we do know that there are some top games that are available to play for free this weekend, courtesy of Microsoft.
The latest batch of Xbox Live are now live and can be downloaded for free if you have an active Gold subscription.
Yakuza Kiwami, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, and For Honor Standard Edition will be available to play until Sunday, July 26 at 11:59pm PDT.
For gamers in the UK, this means that all three titles will be playable until 7:59am on Monday, July 27.
While not the newest of games, these three games offer a nice mix of gameplay styles and are also discounted while part of the Free Play Days program.
