Already have the Xbox One titles... the 360 ones are new for my backlog though!

Lords of Shadow was a great, under-appreciated game. Solid.

Glad I passed on Castlevania in sales and I knew FM6 would eventually be here. Not glad I preordered Gears 4 and have barely played it, along with essentially Bean Diving Torchlight. This is still a solid month quality wise (even though I was super disappointed with Gears).

I've never played Torchlight or that Castlevania. Of course the other 2 are great but I played them ages ago.

Xbox one sucks this month, not sure about 360.

Why not Forza 7? These GWG need to be more recent titles.

Just so you all know, Forza 6's servers have been down since 7/23. With this news breaking, it makes me hopeful that that they were down in preparation for it going free in a few days, but all online achievements have been unobtainable for the last week now. I've been checking every day to see if they're back up, so hopefully they're back come August.

And gears? Don’t add a game like that from game pass!

Will pick up Castlevania
Not everybody pays for gamepass. At least with it going on GWG people can now own the game forever without having to pay the monthly fee.
Everyone should have gamepass due to the $1 conversion program. I think it's a fair criticism.

Cool, three games I don't own or have access to. Glad people who don't have GoW 4 through Game Pass can try it out before 5 releases. I've enjoyed my short time with it.

Always happy to through more games on the backlog.

I noticed Gears 4 has about 30 partially discontinued/unobtainable achievements - what's up with that? Should I not start the game - is it impossible to get those achievements?

What a pile of crap Gears 4 is game pass! Forza 6 is dead
How are people not realising that Microsoft has limited options for GwG now. All major publishers have or will soon have a subscription service (EA, Ubisoft, Microsoft) and want to keep their titles exclusive to those services. Old games, indies and first party titles are Microsoft's only options so people will moan every month because their desirability is niche.

If you want "free" current games from Microsoft, Game Pass is now the only way.

Gears 4 I care very little about, completed it back in late 2017 and was bored to tears through the entire series so I guess I can skip that. Already got, and completed 100%, Torchlight so that's an easy skip.
Forza 6 must be getting retired soon like Forza 5 was not long after it was a Games With Gold offer and I'm enjoying Forza Horizon 4 more any way, the Castlevania game sound interesting enough so I'll give that one a try.

Not great but better than previous months have been I guess, I'm sure there are some good ones there for others who have been interested and haven't tried any of the games yet.

Torchlight is an easy completion. Fun game too.

You get 48 games a year via GwG. How many of those have also been on GP within the last year? I'm not certain of this info, but if it is above 50% I wouldn't be super happy, I guess.

Good news my friend can keep playing gears 4 after his game pass subscription ends.

Stop complaining people this is much better than some golf game or Indy platformer

I agree. Forza 7 would've been much better
