Major Nelson has just announced the new Games with Gold titles for August 2019 and it includes a quite breathtaking lineup of titles.
Xbox Live users can download Gears of War 4 and Forza Motorsport 6 on Xbox One, whilst Torchlight and Castlevania Lords of Shadow are both available as Xbox 360 titles.
Obviously, the 360 games are also playable on Xbox One thanks to backwards compatibility.
Compared to the lacklustre Games with Gold lineup in July, this month’s games sure are a decent bunch and will be tough to beat for Xbox’s main competition in the form of PS4’s PlayStation Plus games.
According to Major Nelson, August’s lineup provides over $94 dollars in value and up to 6200 in gamerscore.
As a reminder, here are the dates you want to earmark for your calendar:
- Gears of War 4 – Available all month (normally $29.99)
- Forza Motorsport 6 – From August 16 to September 15 – (normally $22.99)
- Torchlight – From August 1 to 15 – (normally $14.99)
- Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – From August 16 to 31 – (normally $19.99)
