A few days before August, Microsoft has already unveiled the list of games that will be available for free to all subscribers to the Xbox Games With Gold program. This month, 4 games will be offered.
After a fairly quiet month of July when Microsoft offered no major titles, Microsoft has lifted the veil on the 4 games that will be offered in August, and its selection will not please all subscribers to the Xbox Game With Gold program. In effect, two of them were already part of previous Games with Gold selections, in 2014 and 2020.
The two titles that had previously been available are Saints Row 2, which launched on Xbox 360, and Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine, the 2013 indie stealth hit. Saints Row 2 was a July 2020 Games with Gold offer, and Monaco was given free to Gold subscribers in September 2014. We can therefore see that Microsoft is warming up, since the company has already announced thatit will stop offering Xbox 360 games as of October 2022.
