Microsoft has announced the new Xbox titles that will be made available for free to Xbox Live Gold members in August 2019.

“In August on Xbox One, fight the monstrous Swarm in Gears of War 4 and then experience the thrill of racing in Forza Motorsport 6,” Microsoft’s Dean Shimabukuro announced. “On Xbox 360, and Xbox One via Backward Compatibility, explore treacherous dungeons in Torchlight, then prepare to do battle with fearsome beasts in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.”

Here’s what you can expect this month:

Gears of War 4 ($29.99 ERP): Available August 1 to 31 on Xbox One. “Get ready for the upcoming Gears 5 by playing as JD, Kait, and Del in their first adventure. In Gears of War 4, the squad must discover the source of a terrifying new enemy and rescue their loved ones after escaping an attack on their village. After defeating the Swarm in the campaign, don’t forget to check out Horde and Versus multiplayer.”

Forza Motorsport 6 ($99 ERP): Available August 16 to September 15 on Xbox One. “One of the most comprehensive racing games of this generation comes your way in Forza Motorsport 6. Start your engines and compete against 24-players, day or night in all weather conditions.

Torchlight ($14.99 ERP): Available August 1 to 15 on Xbox One and Xbox 360. “Developed by the creators of Diablo and Fate, choose among three separate character classes: Destroyer, Alchemist, or Vanquisher and seek adventure through randomized dungeon levels. Slay hordes of monsters, learn devastating skills, and loot endless treasure in this thrilling action-roleplaying title. Play Torchlight now before its sequel Torchlight II makes its way onto Xbox One September 3!”

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow ($19.99 ERP): Available August 16 to 31 on Xbox One and Xbox 360. “Play the role of Gabriel in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.

    Gears 4? Not too shabby. Not too shabby at all. Never bought it, so I guess my patience paid off.
