Xbox Live Games With Gold August 2014: FREE Dishonored For 360, Crimson Dragon For Xbox One- More!
Microsoft seems determined to silence naysayers who claim that PS Plus offers a better deal for gamers, being that they get a superb selection of free games every month. Traditionally Xbox Live's equivalent of Sony's Instant Game Collection has offered much older games, and only recently have they started including free Xbox One titles as well.
But things seem like they're about to change! This month owners of both the 360 and One will each get quality titles to download, all free with their subscription.
On Xbox 360, Xbox Live Gold members will get two free games this month as usual. Starting Friday, August 1 through August 15, Mototocross Madness (normally US $9.99) will be free.
Then on August 16 through August 31 Bethesda's stealth action title Dishonored (normally US $19.99) will be free.
Those are yours to own and love forever, and while Dishonored has its issues it's certainly worth playing through if you haven't already.
As far as the Xbox One, starting on August 1 2014 the following two titles will be available for free for the entire month. Note that these replace the previous free games, Guacamelee! Super Championship Edition and Max: The Curse of the Brotherhood- so make sure to grab those two before the end of July if you want to add them to your collection!
Crimson Dragon - "Several generations have passed since the human colonists of Planet Draco lost contact with Earth. Now they face the return of an old threat, a colossal destroyer known as the White Phantom. In 'Crimson Dragon', control your dragon and fight off the violent enemy life forms. Teach your dragon new skills, and train it to face combat in harder missions.
Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut - "In the year 2299, an interstellar war rages. Take control of the Strike Suit - a craft with the ability to transform into a hulking suit of space armor - in a bid to save Earth from destruction. Immerse yourself in massive fleet battles where your dogfighting skills will directly affect the fate of the cosmos."
Unlike the Xbox 360 titles, these titles are only available to you free for as long as you remain an Xbox Live Gold Member.
