Greetings fellow gamers!
Today marks a new month and that means new free games are available for Xbox Games with Gold and Playstation Plus! Below is a detailed list (with links) for each of the games up-for-grabs this month!
XBOX GAMES WITH GOLD
#1 Forza Horizon 2 Standard – 10th Anniversary Edition
Includes the Full version of Forza Horizon 2, the Forza hub app, and the Ten Year Anniversary Car Pack.
This hyper-realistic racer will have you on the edge of your seat, battling for first place. Exhibiting over 200 cars, realistic weather and driving physics, online multiplayer (up to 12) and online co-op, you cannot go wrong with this freebie alone. Retailing in at $19.99, this game is worth it’s weight in Gold (bad pun, i know). Grab it for Free August 1st – 31st.
#2 Dead Space 3
Although I have never played this game, I have played the first two. Bringing Isaac Clarke and the mutations that we all know and love back in another game that you can actually play co-op (online) with is amazing. I’m looking forward to having twice the killing power to slice and dice these terrible monstrosities (please, no more babies). Also having a retail price point at $19.99, grab this one for Free August 1st – 15th.
#3 For Honor – Standard Edition
Released last year for the Xbox One, For Honor promised a brutal, fast-paced strategic combat game that was sure to deliver. Alpha and Beta releases were extremely promising in delivering as such. This issue that made this game unplayable, and why I believe it is now going to be free, is that Ubisoft royally botched the servers. The ability to find and remain in an online session is a horrible experience plenty of people away from For Honor, and understandably so. But, for Free (as opposed to it’s still $59.99 price), I would definitely recommend giving it a shot. When it works, it is a challenging fun game with a ton of depth and potential. For Honor is avaiable for Free August 16th – September 15th.
#4 Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two
Paint a colorful world as Mickey and Oswald in a bright and creative atmosphere with this game. It’s a Disney game, what more could you want. Even if you did not play the first installment, the game does a good job catching you up with what has happened. Refining all of the first games mechanics, this is a classic that will never get old. Marked down from it’s $19.99 price point, grab it Free August 15th – 31st.
#1 Mafia III
“1968. New Bordeaux.
After years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: family isn’t who you’re born with, it’s who you die for. When his surrogate family, the black mob, is wiped out by the Italian Mafia, Lincoln builds a new family and blazes a path of military-grade revenge through the Mafioso responsible.” – Playstation Store
#2 Dead by Daylight
A 4v1 multiplayer horror game done right. One player takes on the role of the savage killer while the survivors try escape from being caught, tortured, and killed. Including several references to Freddy and Jason, this game captures the 80’s horror flicks in wondrous glory.
