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 September 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 September on Xbox One, build and manage a maximum-security prison in Prison Architect, then achieve victory in the battle between the machines in Livelock. On Xbox 360 and Xbox One via Backward Compatibility, use the Force and fight in the Clone Wars in LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, and enjoy classic, retro gaming in Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World.
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!

Take control of designing, building, and running a maximum-security penitentiary in Prison Architect. See the results of your grand designs play out on the lives of your inmates, as you create a utopic rehabilitation center or a Super Max prison. You’ll manage everything from staffing, security, and maintenance to escape attempts and riots. It’s your prison, your rules.
Break the infinite cycle of war between the machines in the twin-stick shooter Livelock. Control one of three mechanical chassis types – Hex, Vanguard or Catalyst – to defeat your mechanical enemies in this three-player co-op shooter as you battle to unlock Eden and revive humanity.
