Games with Gold Offers Forza 5, Oxenfree, More in September

It’s September 1, so it’s time to take a look at the free games that Xbox Live Gold subscribers are getting this month via the Games with Gold promotion. And this is going to be a very good month indeed.

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. I can’t remember the last time I wanted to get all four games.
