Games with Gold Offers Bayonetta, More in August

It’s a new month, and a new selection of free games for Xbox Live Gold subscribers via the Games with Gold promotion.

Reminder: All Xbox 360 games in the Games for Gold promotion also work on Xbox One in Backward Compatibility mode too. So Xbox One users with Xbox Live Gold subscriptions are technically getting at least four free games each month.

Here’s what’s free this month.

Xbox One

Slime Rancher
Normal price: $19.99
Free availability: August 1 to August 31

Description: For Beatrix LeBeau, being a rancher can be tough. Especially when she moves a thousand light years away for her job! Add to that, she’s not wrangling cattle, she’s wrangling slimes. A lot of slimes! But there’s money to be made in slime science. Careful though, it’s a risky business when vacpacs and jetpacks are your tools.

Trials Fusion

Free availability: August 16 to September 15

Xbox 360

Normal price: $19.99
Free availability: August 1 to August 15

Free availability: August 16 to August 31

    None of these games are particularly good.

    Red Faction: Guerilla is the best RF game.

  2. Minok

    None of those are appealing. Yet another cinematic first person shooter, oh joy.
