Here are all the games available to Xbox Live subscribers this month
August 2019’s Xbox Live Games with Gold have been revealed and this month, Xbox Live subscribers can experience entries in two of Microsoft’s biggest franchises and more.
To keep up with all the Xbox Live Games with Gold news, be sure to visit our Xbox Live Games with Gold section here at SCG, which is located under our “More from SCG” menu.
The page features a list of every game that’s ever been offered on the Games with Gold program, so you can take a look at what you’ve missed or get a reminder of what you downloaded at this time last year.
Here is the full list of games being offered for the month:
Gears of War 4 (Xbox One) (Aug. 1-31)
Forza Motorsport 6 (Xbox One) (Aug. 16-Sept. 15)
Torchlight (Xbox 360/Xbox One BC) (Aug. 1-15)
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (Xbox 360/Xbox One BC) (Aug. 16-31)
If you’ve yet to grab July’s games, you’ve got until Aug.1 (note that some games carry over to the following month, some games don’t become free until the middle of the month and other games may have ended in the middle of last month).
Don’t forget, Microsoft offers weekly sales, many of which have deeper discounts for subscribers or are locked out to non-subscribers, so be sure to hit up Major Nelson’s Xbox Blog or just keep an eye on the Xbox Store for more information on those.
Also, keep in mind that Xbox 360 Games with Gold are playable on Xbox One via Xbox One’s backward compatibility feature.
Xbox Live Gold runs $59.99 a year, but discounts can be found from time to time. For more information on other services Xbox Live Gold offers, please visit the official Xbox web page.
A new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription was recently announced and includes Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold for $14.99 a month. This makes the two services total up to about $180 for a year, essentially making each — Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass — about $90 apiece for a year.
Don’t forget to keep it locked to SCG for monthly updates on subscription game offerings and everything else gamers from the River City and beyond need to know.
