As July is almost over, Microsoft has just revealed the Xbox Games with Gold lineup for August 2022. The first two games that will be free to grab starting August 1 are the community simulation game Calico and the Xbox 360 game Saints Row 2.
As you may remember, Saints Row 2 was previously offered with the Games with Gold for July 2020. Microsoft recently announced that it will stop offering new Xbox 360 games to Xbox Live Gold members starting in October, and the company will likely keep recycling old games until that date.

The two other Games with Gold titles that will be free to grab starting August 16 are the roguelite platformer ScourgeBringer and the Xbox 360 game Monaco: What’s Yours Is Mine. Again, this game was previously offered to Gold members back in September 2014.
Overall, these four games represent $54 in value and 3400 in Gamerscore. If you’re an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, we remind you that you have until the end of the month to grab Beasts of Maravilla Island and Torchlight for free with your subscription. As usual, Xbox 360 Games with Gold titles are yours to keep forever, but Xbox One games require an active Gold subscription to be played.
In addition to the August Games with Gold lineup announcement, the Xbox team has also just announced another Free Play Days event for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. WWE 2K22, Generation Zero, and Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker are currently free to play on Xbox consoles until Sunday, July 31 at 11:59 p.m. PDT.
