After a pretty poor Games With Gold lineup last month, August’s selection is looking much better for XBL Gold members.
Next month’s free titles will include WWE 2K16, Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate, Spelunky and Beyond Good & Evil.
Released in October last year, 2K16 was well received by fans and is (in our opinion) the best 2K wrestling game to date. It’ll be available to download from the 16th of August to the 15th of September.
Free for the whole of August is Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate – a hack and slash adventure in the vein of (and featuring characters from) Tecmo’s Dynasty Warriors. It’s received some pretty average reviews all round, but for free, it’s well worth a go.
Underground indie platformer Spelunky is also free from the 1st to the 15th of August. This is definitely worth downloading, having received some excellent reviews across the board.
Finally, there’s Ubisoft’s Beyond Good & Evil – a game that should really need no introduction. The award-winning action-adventure was one of our favourite remasters of the last generation, and we’d all highly recommend it. It’s free from the 16th to the 31st of August.
Of course, both 360 titles will be backwards compatible on Xbox One.
