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 August 2018 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below along with information on each of the four titles.
Welcome to another Games with Gold reveal for Xbox One and Xbox 360! In August on Xbox One, celebrate speed and style in Forza Horizon 2, then defeat your enemies in glorious battle in For Honor. On Xbox 360 and Xbox One via Backward Compatibility, prepare to once again fight the nightmarish Necromorph plague in Dead Space 3, and save the world with your magic brush in Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.
All games will be available exclusively for Xbox Live Gold members for a limited time as part of Games with Gold. With Xbox Live Gold, you get the most advanced multiplayer service, free games, and exclusive member discounts on games in the Microsoft Store — get Xbox Live Gold today to get in on the action!
