Xbox August Games With Gold Announced | Beyond Entertainment


August is nearly here, and like every new month there is a new lineup of free titles for Xbox’s Games with Gold.  For August Xbox Live members will be able to download two Xbox One games and two Xbox 360 games for no cost.  The games for the Xbox 360 are also backwards compatible for the Xbox One.  Check out August’s games below!

Xbox One:

Slime Rancher: August 1 – 31

Slime Rancher is the tale of Beatrix LeBeau, a plucky, young rancher who sets out for a life a thousand light years away from Earth on the ‘Far, Far Range’ where she tries her hand at making a living wrangling slimes. With a can-do attitude, plenty of grit, and her trusty vacpack, Beatrix attempts to stake a claim, amass a fortune, and avoid the continual peril that looms from the rolling, jiggling avalanche of slimes around every corner.


Trials Fusion: August 16 – September 15

Trials Fusion is the gold-standard platform racer for the next-generation of gaming. Built upon the Trials franchise’s proven gameplay foundations, Fusion challenges players endlessly in both classic and all-new ways. Whether you’re racing alone, with friends, or in a global tournament, competition is always around you.

Xbox 360

Bayonetta: August 1 – 15

Stylish, over-the-top finishing moves and epic set pieces push the limits of the action genre in Bayonetta. As a witch with magical powers and deadly weapons, you’ll flow gracefully in battle from one angelic enemy to the next in this critically acclaimed game.


Red Faction: Armageddon: August 16 – 31

Like its predecessor Red Faction: Guerrilla, Red Faction: Armageddon is a third-person shooter game. The player takes on the role of Darius Mason, a descendant of Guerrilla Alec Mason. The game is set 50 years after the conclusion of Guerrilla. Most of the game is set in an underground tunnel complex inhabited by alien creatures. This time the player can also use a Nano Forge device to repair structures such as stairs, allowing them to progress through the caves.
