One of the very best decisions that console makers Microsoft and Sony have made, is to offer free games to those who are members of their Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus programs each month. Hundreds of dollars worth of games for free each year. It makes the pill that is having to pay to play (online) much, much easier to swallow.
The four free games being offered to Xbox Live Gold members for Games With Gold in July 2017 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below along with information on each of the four titles.
Summer has officially arrived and we’re giving you plenty of reasons to stay inside with four exciting games coming to Games with Gold in July. For Xbox One, the open-world adventure game Grow Up will be available July 1 – 31, followed by the innovative (and colorful) racing game Runbow from July 16 to August 15. We’ll also have a couple of throwbacks to the Xbox 360 era thanks to Backward Compatibility. Step into the shoes of disillusioned and desperate criminals in Kane & Lynch 2 starting July 1 – 15, and then get ready for a swashbuckling adventure in LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game from July 16 – 30.
All games will be available for a limited time only as part of Games with Gold, so get Xbox Live Gold today to get in on the action!

Living the life of a B.U.D. (Botanical Utility Droid) can be tough. Especially when your spaceship breaks into pieces and scatters across a planet filled with amazing plants and wondrous structures! As B.U.D., along with your friend P.O.D., you’ll traverse this open world and recover parts of your ship. Fly, climb, bounce, roll and complete challenges along the way in this wibbly wobbly fun adventure.
A fast-paced party action game with a never before seen color mechanic. Up to nine players can race against each other locally or online as platforms and obstacles appear and disappear when the colored background changes. Go head-to-head in one of Runbow’s modes, including Arena, King of the Hill, ColourMaster, and The Bowhemoth.
Kane & Lynch 2
Play as two violent and disturbing criminals in the action shooter Kane & Lynch 2. Lynch, the psychopath, has his sanity on the edge at all times and Kane, the ex-mercenary, is disillusioned and desperate. Play as both in an epic single-player story driven campaign, or team up with a friend over Xbox Live.
LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game
Time for a swashbuckling adventure in LEGO form. Play as characters from the classic film series, each with their own personalities and abilities, and join your friends in co-op play! The wide-open seas are full of bricks for the plundering in LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game.
