[UPDATE: Microsoft has officially unveiled Xbox’s Games with Gold for August 2017. The original story continues below.]
Although the Xbox Games with Gold for July 2017 deals are still in effect, it seems as if fans are being given an inadvertant look ahead at next month’s offerings through the service. As it so happens, a flyer has leaked online through a Spanish site known as SomosXbox that has unveiled which titles will be included in August’s lineup for Xbox One and Xbox 360 players.
As seen in the flyer below, Xbox One fans who have Xbox Live Gold memberships should expect to receive Ubisoft’s action-adventure title Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles – India from August 1 through August 31, and Campo Santo’s first-person mystery adventure release Firewatch from August 16 through September 15. Considering July’s offerings of Ubisoft Reflections’ Grow Up and 13AM Games’ Runbow, many Xbox One fans will likely consider August’s games a step up in terms of distinction and quality.
As far as Microsoft’s contributions to August’s Games with Gold for Xbox 360 are concerned, it looks as if fans of the platform are expected to receive Monolith Productions’ survival-horror title Condemned: Criminal Origins from August 1 through August 15, and Turn 10 Studios’ racing game Forza Horizon 2 from August 16 through August 31. Much like the potential offerings for Xbox One next month, fans will likely see August’s games for Xbox 360 as an upgrade from IO Interactive’s Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days and Traveller’s Tales’ LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game.
Of course, since Microsoft hasn’t actually announced which games it will be rolling out for Xbox One and Xbox 360 through its Games with Gold program, it’s important for fans to take the leak with a grain of salt, as the flyer could easily be a fake. Nevertheless, it’s safe to presume that we will get official confirmation soon about which titles the company plans to offer up for free to Gold Members next month since July is almost over.
The Xbox Games with Gold program’s next slew of titles will become available starting August 1, 2017.
